    LETTER: U.S. could fall just like the Roman Empire



    LETTER: U.S. could fall just like the Roman Empire

    September 14, 2007 6:00 AM

    U.S. could fall just like the Roman Empire

    Two recent opinion pieces (Mr. Pinkerton, Aug. 26 and Mr. Wolfe, Aug. 27) got my attention. Mr. Pinkerton's discussed some similarities between the decline of the Roman Empire and the United States. Mr. Wolfe's focused on the loss of manufacturing companies in New England mill towns and our country's manufacturing industry being replaced by a service economy.

    Both of these writers brought up some very interesting points, and I would like to add to their discussions.

    In regard to the fall of the Roman Empire, this entire empire didn't completely collapse until 1453 when the Turks' leader ultimately conquered the remaining Roman Empire.

    I believe the fall of the Roman Empire can be largely attributed to other factors (mostly internal) rather than simply from an external military force.

    However, another external contributing factor for the Roman Empire's downfall was from massive migrations of people moving across Europe and settling in Roman territories. Back in those days countries didn't have an immigration policy.

    The United States does have an immigration policy, but unfortunately, it is neither efficient nor enforced by our government. Presently our country is being overrun by illegal immigrants. Like the Roman Empire, we are not able to assimilate such a huge, uncontrolled amount of people into our society.

    Similar internal contributing factors include: decline in moral values, public health, political corruption, unemployment, inflation, urban decay, and military spending.

    At first glance one would think having a national unemployment rate of 4.6 percent (July) would be acceptable. However, let's remember what jobs we have to offer because our manufacturing jobs and even high-tech positions are sent overseas.

    Indeed, one should be concerned when examining the similarities between the ancient Roman Empire and the United States.

    Should our government continue on its present course of not protecting our borders and our sovereignty, the English language and our American culture, the United States will soon be going the way of the Roman Empire.

    This sentiment has been expressed many times.

    They say, history repeats itself, and that appears to be happening.

    Greed could destroy this country but it isn't too late.

    Hello Jean,I was always taught the saying was-For those who are ignorant, history will repeat itself.I am not trying to correct you,I just read your comment and didn't know if you had heard of that part.
    Anyway,I think we-Alipac.us members and a few other groups-are the ones awake(read:not ignorant) may still have to survive a repeat of history because so many others are still asleep(yep, read:ignorant).

    I've been thinking this same thing for a few years now as it's getting pretty obvious.


    This is our culture - fight for it!

    This is our flag - pick it up!

    This is our country - take it back!

    With the average household credit card debt averaging $14,000, and the National debt in the trillions, and the Federal Reserve's continuing to devalue what precious dollars we have left after being robbed by the IRS and other taxing authorities, what do you think?
    Then, throw in the fact that the controlling powers are actively trying to give what is left of this country to illegal aliens and other foreigners.
    And the corrupt main stream media is trying to hide all of this from the American public.
    The liberal left and Hollywood seem to be trying to get the rest of the world to hate us.
    Yes, we are going down fast. That's why ALIPAC and other patriots are so important in waking us up? I don't mean we've been to blame for sleeping: I blame our main stream media for keeping Americans' heads in the sand.
