End of the U.S. - How will it end?

Nuclear Attack?
Civil War?
Chaos because of major event like Bankruptcy?
Other?

What do you think will be the time frame?

Considering overpopulation of the earth. I think the next 30 years could be dangerous for the earth and the U.S. as a whole. One thing I don't see discussed is lack of oxygen: More burning of carbon fuel loss of trees plants and declining ability of oceans due to ocean pollution warmer temps.

I honestly don't know the mode. Nor do I worry about it at the age of 73. If I were in my early 20 I would be more pro active on how to survive. And there are really not a lot of good options?

It has already ended. No shots fired. Just subverted from the inside.

The day the US totally sells out to China, while still looking for that Russian collusion. So, soon.

Mother Earth will survive anything *WE* will do. She may have some new animals running around on her surface, but she will be fine.

Unless of course it's something flung from outside the solar system. . .

Ever see the movie “the road”? It will be that kind of event that will end America. I hope that no lesser would be able to stop the free world from existing.

This magnetic pole shift is getting scary fellow members.

Farmers arent doing so well this year.

The end of the US will come when it is no longer worth defending (or when Warren got elected lols). That's how the Roman empire ended. It was rotten from within before it was taken over by the barbarians. Maybe when that time comes, we will build another Constantinople on the north pole once global warming has melted the polar cap lols.

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round;
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!
And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced:
Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst
Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,
Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher’s flail:
And mid these dancing rocks at once and ever
It flung up momently the sacred river.
Five miles meandering with a mazy motion
Through wood and dale the sacred river ran,
Then reached the caverns measureless to man,
And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean;
And ’mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
Ancestral voices prophesying war!
The shadow of the dome of pleasure
Floated midway on the waves;
Where was heard the mingled measure
From the fountain and the caves.
It was a miracle of rare device,
A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!

A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw:
It was an Abyssinian maid
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora.
Could I revive within me
Her symphony and song,
To such a deep delight ’twould win me,
That with music loud and long,
I would build that dome in air,
That sunny dome! those caves of ice!
And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.

That thing was honestly the coolest thing I've ever seen in my life (with the moment of totality of a solar eclipse an extremely close second). I wish it would come back during my lifetime.

Well. That's nothing dude. Just wait till the illuminati recruit you and you get to travel either down underneath the outer layer of the earth or up past the firmament where the greys and the lizard people will train you to become the corporate elite and forever leave the life of a sheeple behind.

Lmao jk.

But seriously. Seeing hale bopp was awesome. Hayleys too. I was so young back then.

I think I threw out my Hale-Bopp essence a few years ago. But I still have some homeopathics left over.

It'll be everyone locked away in their houses interacting via their screens, only opening their doors occasionally to get their amazon or door dash deliveries by those condemned to the gig economy.

USA will most like fracture into three to five regional powers if it ever implodes and I only see that happen once the constitution as it was original written is completely ignored and any sense of law and order is lost. We already half way their since one party clearly hates what american is and stand for and activitly tries to undermine it and it laws.
