    We know that The U.S.'s current course in unsustainable.... We cant continue to borrow money simply to "function" .... We already know that the national healthcare dealio will be a dismal failure, both in cost & functionality.... We know that the newest generation of Americans are immensely unprepared to be self-sustaining & deal with normal life, both educationally and in common sense ...

    How will the average American be getting by 100 years from now?? Will most be living hand to mouth?...Will they be closer to a primordial living scenario?......Will we be more of an 'Escape From New York' sorta landscape?.... Or, might the official language of the U.S. be Chinese at that point ?..

    the average joe will probably have some sort of a dead end job pushing buttons at a cogs or sprockets company.

    100 years is less than a blink of the eye

    They will be living month to month and this plutocracy will end. English will always be the language of the US for at least the next 1000 years.

    Imagine living in the dark ages after the fall of Rome. 600 fucking years of famine, wars, and disease. Thanks to Obummercare we are heading in that direction.

    Afghanistan in the 1950s was very progressive and modern. Here are some women at Kabul U doing scientific research.

    Now they are cave people. We probably won't be cave people, but probably back to Little House on the Prairie times....

    If the liberal progressives keep getting elected we will end up like communist Russia where the government controls all. We are definitely living in an Owellian society now and it is just going to get worse.
