don't think it is going to break up, but I do think that the US will lead the western world into another depression which is gonna hurt.
A lot!
Perhaps it will have a lot of reform and perhaps not, but I don't think it's gonna break up any time soon.

If it did break up, Texas or Alaska would be the place to be. Texas is already more conservative than the rest of the US. We have seaports, oil, wind and nuclear power, agriculture, military bases, and lots of guns in the hands of the people.

Our government leaders set up this chain of events 20 years ago by making the banks give people loans that had no way to repay them, (Home mortgages,Airlines,Banks,Car companies,etc.) A Capitolist system cannot work if the government doesn't let companies fail,and now we are seeing a prime example of what a So******t system does when it fails. The government cannot keep making/borrowing money that they don't have or the currency becomes worthless to other countries that we do business with. Just look back in history to the U.S.S.R and Mexico,and other countries that have had it happen to them.
Whether you think we are or not,this country is in really bad shape because of all the bandaids the government has put on our economy the past 20 years by not letting companies go bankrupt and fail.
I hate to think it,but we are headed for another great depression and there is really no way out except the time it takes to cycle through it.

This guy is so FOS!! Americans don't break up or seek isolation from other Americans, they fight, unite and overcome....What he is expounding, is a European concept from a European perspective!! Typical tripe from a resident of a country that hasn't had any governmental stability in 500 years!! Absolutely laughable!!

Even if the article is wrong (and of course I hope it is), we will still be seeing an enormous population increase in the US over the next several decades. This will be (and already is) due largely to continuing immigration (illegal and otherwise). And that's going to have to a very, very challenging effect on the economy and on the availability of natural resources.
