FT.com / World - Learn from the fall of Rome, US warned
Drawing parallels with the end of the Roman empire, Mr Walker warned there were “striking similarities” between America’s current situation and the factors that brought down Rome, including “declining moral values and political civility at home, an over-confident and over-extended military in foreign lands and fiscal irresponsibility by the central government”.
“Sound familiar?” Mr Walker said. “In my view, it’s time to learn from history and take steps to ensure the American Republic is the first to stand the test of time.”
I am truly enjoying being at the pinnacle of the Roman Empire and I am trying to enjoy the ride as the roller coaster has reached the top. The chain has been released from the ride and and there is no sound while the ride is frozen for an instant in time before the cars move toward the abyss. I am ready for the ride and will keep my hands up and look around for those that cannot stomach the plunge. We voted for this ride as the American public voted the old serpent to represent at us at every level of government.
