Well yeah.
I mean, if u look at a map North America is just floatin in the middle of the water, dangerously close to the left side of the world.
We'll fall off eventually, whenever the water current gods decide.

It's basic geometry really.

All empires fall for different reasons. A war economy like America is the type to collapse most often.

What exactly do you mean by fall?

I think eventually we will lose the power we have around the world. We won't be able to station troops around the world, we'll call them back, struggle within ourselves, maybe have a little civil war.

Then we will rebuild.

But no one is going to invade us. No country except for maybe Russia has the power to move large numbers of troops like we do.

Perhaps you should consider how Britain conquered India.

Pretty much this.
There was some quote about America being like the Romans and how it was soo great, it fell under its own greatness and how America is no different. Or something like that.

Sure, the USA will "fall" eventually, but not for the reasons listed in the OP. The Samsung, HTC, and LG smartphones are running Android, developed by Google, and using processors based on ARM architecture, many of the processors manufactured by Qualcomm or Texas instruments. The PC market, even though Lenovo, Samsung, ASUS, and Acer are huge players, are shipping PCs with Windows, developed by Microsoft, and running either an Intel or AMD processor.

And somehow I doubt the fall of the USA will be caused by those Koreans being too damn good at Starcraft(developed by Blizzard)...

I can't really find the words to say how wonderful a reply that was.

Very well played.

I think there will be a revolution either at the hands of a great leader or an incompetent one. Until then we'll keep playing our media controlled partisan games.

I agree that an economic disaster is just about the only way it will fall, but I could also see a world war AGAINST the US.

I give it 100 years. If it doesn't fall, it will get knocked down a few pegs... or more than a few.

Well, we know that mass globalization is happening in proportion with technological advancements. So in that regard, there is something to be said about the boarders coming down in the future.

America is very different than Ancient Rome.
