The truth is hard to swallow, for a lot of people.
But really its not a new thing, America has been receding compared to other nations for going on 30 years now. It had a little kick of life in the late 90's but 9/11 shat on that and has made the recession of America that much quicker. Terrorism has won so to speak.
The American dream is dead, and you can thank Reagan period for putting it on the death bed.
Like the clip said. Most of the nations in the world have freedom, and many nations lead it every aspect of society. America is #1 in Criminals, #1 in Guns, and #1 in Blind leading the Blank (the last one is my opinion).
Republicans and Democrats it makes no difference, same dudes different color ties. America is dead because the people have given up on it.
But history has shown, all great Empires collapse, and in the immortal words of Robert Frost. "Nothing gold can stay."

*shrug* People have been saying America is dead when Japan was rising. They have been voicing similar sentiments since the country was created.
Granted, the current set of circumstances is rather unique, but where there is will, there is a way.
I would go on, but I actually have some **** to do. It does happen.
ps. yeah. old clip, still awesome, people need a swift kick in a **** sometimes
