The End of the American Empire

The United States of America IS … and will continue to be an EMPIRE!! It’s the American way …..

In Saner Thought

There are some that claim the US is an imperial-esque power….and of course there will oppose such accusations…..but let’s look….first at the British Empire in 19th century…..

Now let’s take a look at where the US has troops deployed in that same globe…..

Now I realize that a case can be made that this is all about national security….but the Brits had troops stationed in their sphere of control back 100 years or so….and that was billed as national security.

At what point does this look like control more than national security?

Smells like empire to me.

But if you would like more on this situation then please read LobeLog below……and then answer the question.

I’m here to talk about the end of the American empire. But before I do I want to note that one of our most charming characteristics as Americans is our amnesia. I mean, we a…

    • Not taking it as any kind of antagonism …. I used to think America was the greatest country in the world. As a child I wanted to move and grow up in America. I thought this until almost 1-2 years ago ….. I read this book, “War Against All Puerto Ricans” … and my eyes were open. There are many things in this country that are good and beyond compare. Yet the people running it are corrupt as in many other countries.
      I’m sad to say that I think America is in a very slippery slope … taking into consideration the current political climate. If Americans don’t do something soon … it may be too late. Yet, at the same time … where in this world are things “correct”??
      Like you, not meaning to be antagonistic either. I’m open to discussion … I want to learn and listen to other people’s points of view.
      Please, take a look at what I just posted now …. To start the day … it’s related to my country, Puerto Rico.
      Some may say, go back … that’s not a solution. Puerto Rico “belongs” to the US … and it’s not any different than here. Your thoughts???

      • I’ve never witnessed such divisiveness among our elected officials or in the political arena . I am not a proponent of anarchy or censorship but believe there are forces that must be stopped to preserve the very foundation of our free society. Regarding Puerto Rico, my understanding that as a commonwealth of the US the american citizens are seeking self determination. I am not educated in the process or challenges that they are facing. Apparently they are seeking congressional approval of their desired status. I will have to read further into this issue to be able to speak intelligently on that subject. I think America is the greatest country in the world, I think we need to clean house , corrupt politicians that are dragging us down. I believe in separation of church, the current radical religious rights attempt to force this blending is extremely dangerous to the freedom enjoyed in our society. I will stand with America till my last breath, defend her but I will not stand back while corrupt politician take the reigns of our government. I also feel that hateful criticism and the spreading of propaganda, the sounding a death knell will further deteriorate our status in the world and that is a death knell for us all. We need to be positive, stand for what is right, stand up for America, she needs us.

      • I agree with you wholeheartedly. I think a “clean house” is very badly needed. I also believe in the separation of state and church. These “religious freedom” laws are really a sham. I’m also concerned about how the world perceives America … that is very important in world stability. Right now, to me … through the bloggers I interact with, what is happening is shameful and a total joke.
        When I post anything that seems against the USA it’s mostly to bring out the information that isn’t provided to the average citizen … I think a lot of it isn’t; a lot is keep hidden, under the rug .. and not many have the time to research.
        Regarding Puerto Rico, that is my country … and I will stand by her as you do yours. There was a time when I felt the same way about America. I must be truthful and say that that feeling has been in flux and changing some, mostly because of what has happened to my country because of the US.
        If you feel so inclined, I would suggest that you read the book I mentioned. It’s very well written, easy to read and extremely well documented.

        I thank you for this interaction, your questions and your honest answer. I hope you feel the same way I do …. I value very much open, respectful conversation. Peace … __/l\__ TY!!
