Are the Good Times All Over? Is America As We Knew It In a Permanent Decline?

Every great civilization rises, has it's heydey, then declines and gets trashed. Every generation looks back to previous times as "the good ole days". Sometimes there is a lot of truth in the nostalgia.

Even if you don't like country music, listen to the words. Has Bush Co and the neocons put America on a premature downhill slide? Remember, we were warned. So what are we going to do about it? This is OUR country; are we gonna just sit in front of the telly and LET this happen?
We have three (censoreds) running for president of the (at present) most powerful nation in the world. Will we hold the winner's feet to the fire and force him and our useless Congress to take action to SAVE us? To SAVE the future of our children? To SAVE the future of our nation?

Remember - the slide has already begun. Our dollar is slipping, we are generations in debt, our economy is headed for the toilet, we are hated by practically the entire world, legions of haters plot to destroy us, religious fanatics gain more and more power in our government, and Big Business rules on a global scale and doesn't give a sh*t about national identity. Greed and Power rule!

Pax Americana, my a$$!! Neocon visions of a New Rome might signal the end, NOT the powerful zenith of Old Rome.
Merle Haggard - Are The Good Times All Over For Good

In addition to Merle Haggard wondering if the good times are over for good, I picture Jack Nicholson asking, "What if this is as good as it gets?"

At least Rome was tolerant of other religions, that is until Christianity came to full light. Maybe their initial response to it was right after all. But then again, that fueled the coming of the dark ages.

Yep - we are screwed.

I hate answering questions like your title, but reality is, Yes. We will never again see the America of yesterday.
