How similar is the U.S to the Roman Empire? Why did Rome fall?

Simple. Was the laziness, corruption and sense of self importance by the Roman Leaders the downfall of The Roman Empire? Are we being handed an unstable and unsustainable reality through our leaders that have not a true clue how to go into reversal? Is there any true plan for a way forward? America will fall maybe sooner than later. Prove me wrong. :)

America will fail for the exact some reasons Rome, and every other extinct nation has failed, greed, power, corruption, and ignorance, denial of God, and nothing more!

Rome was the most powerful, America is the most powerful.

Rome thought she wouldn't fall, America thinks she won't fall.

The Roman rulers were full of greed, most American leaders are full of greed.

They both started wars based off of their greed. Rome was greedy for land, and America greedy for natural resources on that land.

Rome distracted the people from the problems of that day. They used sport and play and watched fights in the coliseum all day long. America distracts the people by using sport and play in the form of television.

I find it interesting that people are so obsessed with Rome's fall, yet Rome controlled a large portion of the Western world for hundreds of years; America hasn't even existed as long as Rome had power over the Mediterranean. I think that's pretty damn impressive. And yet the history books are all pre-occupied with "they FELL!"

It's not that we're obsessed with them, it's just that we want them back, cause they never finished half of the statues they were working on!

America and China aren't the top two? Control is definitely up to interpretation. :)

ARe you saying there are other unfinished statues not made by the romans? I'm just trying to read between the lines, you'll have to excuse me!

I rarely leave spaces between lines. :) The US and China are the two main players on the world stage. Russia wants back in. The New World masters are jockeying for position on a chess board that changes daily. But not much.
