America wins ww2, and ever since we have lived the life of kings. We live great while the rest of the world struggles for a piece of bread. Thats gone on for 50 years since ww2. The reasons are we won, and when we won we had the opportunity to oppress a great many people, letting us live as rich people of the earth, easy jobs, great benefits, etc...
Yah, I know, its wearing off. Our decendents will not live like us. Its a fact.
Thats worldy. As far as America internal goes...
The north won the civil war, and then literally oppressed the south tearing apart all the industry of the day. The south was pilliaged, and literally desroyed AFTER the war was ended. This allowed the north to live like kings. Its no different than ww2.
And yes, just like ww2 its wearing off. And as the south grows, the north struggles to maintain its bloated system of unions, government subsides, and benefits for its workers.
The world is changing, not so good for America. The south is changing, not so good for the north. The north isnt changing, to its own peril.
