The world watches America devolve into a corrupt, crime-ridden third-world nation. The message is clear. America’s policies and leadership have resulted in the United States morphing into a dysfunctional state burdened by an incompetent military and a mediocre government bureaucracy. Almost every institution in America is irrelevant on the world stage, especially the military. The United States has become a shining example of how not to run a nation. Sadly, every politician and bureaucrat in Washington is doing everything possible to speed up the decline. Within a few years, no country will look to the United States for leadership. The world follows winners, not losers.
