America’s Status as Superpower is One Day Away From Suicide

Since 1945 and the end of World War II, the US and the Soviet Union were the only two superpowers. We saw the Soviet Union self-destruct in 1991. And now we are witnessing the collapse of American hegemony due to our own internecine ideological warfare. If we do default on our debt on October 17, then that date will mark the end of the American Empire. It will be another “day that will live in infamy” only we will have brought the disaster upon ourselves.  The only thing left to do then will be to submit drafts for the inscription on the tombstone of Uncle Sam.
