U.S. System Unsustainable

Dependence on foreign oil, high gas prices, U.S. not prepared for disasters, The country is basically broke with a record 8 trillion dollar debt that the nation won't be able to pay (soon won't be able to even pay the interest on it), an out of control foreign policy and a pro-war American public thirsting for the next U.S. attack, record trade deficits, terrorism on the rise, a weakening dollar, companies in the U.S. closing and taking jobs overseas for cheap labor, the increase in service jobs... all these things and more spell trouble for the United States.
