Our politicians should learn from history.

The downfall of Rome was caused primarily from a lack of financial responsibility, lack of morality, its military being thinly scattered and no longer strong, and it was unable to secure its borders around Rome.

America is now facing some of the same, if not more serious, problems. Our country is being destroyed by no longer being energy independent, not having secured borders, increasing our national debt, calling half of its people fascists, and begging other countries such as Saudi Arabia and Venezuela to pump more oil.

It now appears our children and grandchildren will inherit a much poorer country and face a bleaker future due to the decisions of our irresponsible politicians we have elected. God help us.
