  •  The decline and fall of the American Empire? (8+ / 0-)

    There have been several diaries and posts on DK over the last year or so pointing out that the decline of the Roman Republic was not an instantaneous thing but happened over the course of a century or so.  Likewise, after everything from Watergate to the Imperium of George II, Deo Gratia Imperiator Americanis (?), I am concerned that we're in the same galley.  If we are to reverse this trend, it must be now.  Otherwise, go buy your toga and watch for the Ides of March.
