Is this the generation that is going to witness the end of America? If our country stays on the path that it is currently on, it is very difficult to see how we are possibly going to make it. Throughout human history every great society has eventually entered a period of decline, and sadly that is happening to us as well. My hope is that we can wake the American people up while there is still time, and that we can return to the values and the principles that this nation was originally founded upon. Below are 16 facts that prove that America is in deep, deep trouble. Many of these numbers come from my new book, and many of them seem almost too crazy to believe…


#1 When Ronald Reagan won his first election, the U.S. national debt was less than one trillion dollars. When Barack Obama entered the White House it was sitting at 10.6 trillion dollars, when the Republicans took control of the House of Representatives in 2010 it was about 14 trillion dollars, and now we have nearly reached the 20 trillion dollar mark. We have been stealing money from our children and our grandchildren at the rate of more than 100 million dollars an hour, and yet most Americans don’t seem to care that we are rapidly bankrupting our nation.

#2 In 1956, approximately 5 percent of all babies in the United States were born to unmarried mothers. Today, things have obviously changed tremendously. 2008 was the very first year in United States history when 40 percent of all babies were born to unmarried mothers, and we have now stayed at that level for eight straight years.

#3 In the early 1970s, well over 60 percent of all Americans were considered to be “middle class”, but in 2015 that number dipped below 50 percent for the first time ever.

#4 In 2001, nearly 16 million Americans could not afford the homes that they were currently living in, but by 2015 that number had more than doubled.

#5 Our system of public education is a complete mess. A study of Millennials in 22 major industrialized nations conducted by the Educational Testing Service found that only two countries were worse when it comes to literacy proficiency, and we were dead last when it comes to math.

#6 In the early 1970s, 70 percent of all men in the United States from the age of 20 to the age of 39 were married, but today that number has fallen to just 35 percent. Instead of getting married and starting families, a lot of our young men are still living at home with their parents. Today, 35 percent of all young men from the age of 21 to the age of 30 “are living at home with their parents or a close relative”.

#7 Many Americans don’t realize this, but the United States has the highest rate of illegal drug use on the entire planet. But we actually have an even bigger problem with legal drugs. According to a study conducted by the Mayo Clinic, nearly 70 percent of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug, and an astounding 20 percent of all Americans are on at least five prescription drugs.

#8 According to the CDC, 110 million Americans currently have a sexually transmitted disease, and there are approximately 20 million new STD cases in the United States every single year.

#9 Thanks to decades of unchecked illegal immigration, membership in criminal gangs has absolutely exploded all over the country. Today there are 150,000 gang members living in the city of Chicago, and they outnumber the police by more than a 10 to 1 margin.

#10 Today there are more than 4 million adult websites on the Internet, and they get more traffic than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined. Addiction to these websites has become a major national crisis, and yet very little is being done. One major survey found that 64 percent of all Christian men in America view “adult material” at least once a month, and a different major survey found that 68 percent of all Christian men in America view “adult material” on a “regular basis”.

#11 When a federal income tax was introduced in 1913, it was fairly simple and most taxpayers were taxed at a rate of just one percent. Today, the tax code is more than 2 million words long and the regulations are more than 7 million words long.

#12 Our government continues to waste money in absolutely insane ways. For example, the U.S. military actually spends 42 million dollars a year on Viagra.

#13 We are an extremely, extremely unhappy nation. If you can believe it, doctors in the United States write more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants each year.

#14 In 2007, 54 percent of all Americans were opposed to gay marriage and only 37 percent wanted it to be legalized. Today, 62 percent of all Americans support gay marriage and only 32 percent are still against it.

#15 The average rate of economic growth over the past 10 years has been exactly equal to the average rate that the U.S. economy grew during the 1930s. I was stunned when I discovered that the U.S. economy had only grown at an average yearly rate of just 1.33 percent over the past 10 years, and that is the exact same average yearly rate that the U.S. economy grew during the decade of the 1930s.

#16 Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, nearly 60 million American children have been murdered in America’s abortion mills. Sadly, the number of children that are aborted each day in this country is roughly equal to the number of Americans that lost their lives on 9/11. If we do not put an end to this, there isn’t going to be any sort of a future for this nation.

    The third message of Our Lady of Akita on October 13, 1973:

    “My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior.”

    After a short silence:

    “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.

    “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests); churches and altars will be sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

    “The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.

    “With courage, speak to your superior. He will know how to encourage each one of you to pray and to accomplish works of reparation.

    “It is Bishop Ito, who directs your community.”

    And She smiled and then said:

    “You have still something to ask? Today is the last time that I will speak to you in living voice. From now on you will obey the one sent to you and your superior.

    “Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamites which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.”

    Approved by Bishop Ito

      The Catholic Church killed 50-150 million people. No wonder early settlers to the New World did not want papists here!

      Lifesitenews will block anyone who says that.

      • im4truth4all

        Give us some details.

        • tax slave

          I have to work soon but some commenters said detailed stuff about the Catholic church and NWO on a naturalnews article.
          I think It shows why separation of church and state is so important for freedom.

          • Knowledge Transfer

            We don’t have separation of Church and state because the state has consumed the Church.

      • Knowledge Transfer

        Historical deprivation and manipulation. Self defense isn’t murder.

        • tax slave

          Give yourself a knowledge transfer and buy Foxe’s Book of Martyrs. It costs 3.99 on one site.

          Also the state has not consumed the church. Someone obviously has to pay our debt when the gov’t runs out of $. Guess who has 1 billion taxpayers?

          • Knowledge Transfer

            Added to historical deprivation we can add academic anemia and intellectual insolvency. You need a more holistic review of history.

          • tax slave

            Try doing a google search, don’t be stupid there’s plenty of data online about how many they killed from MANY DIFFERENT sources.

            Where did you earn your Doctorate in OBTUSE? Did you ever hear the names and the body counts associated with them…names like: Hitler; Stalin; Pol Pot; Mao Zetong; Obama; The US Supreme Court; Planned Parentlesshood; Lenin; Marx; Idi Amin; Saddam Hussaine? Stalin alone murdered 20 million of his own citizens. Ans let’s not forget the wonderful Muslim who even today are raping; pillaging, plundering and even beheading Christians then hanging their heads on fence posts as we speak.

            Why do you ignore the hundreds of millions upon millions killed by the Godless; the soulless; the life hating; the family destroying; the sodomy saluting; and the wealth redistributing as cited earlier? OK, Mr. Wizard given your partiality to fictions vs. facts and twisted lies vs. historical certitudes, please prove your impeccable fact based alligations and answer the following questions:

          Try seeing all the different websites that show how many people were killed by the Catholic Church. It seems everyone on this website is simple minded.
          Herd mentality sucks.

  • Paul Patriot

    I find it ironic that so many Americans (who don’t know history) seem to think the Constitutional Republic is going to go on forever, and many who came of age in the 1950’s are in shock at how our nation is sliding into the sewer at a rapid pace, as they remember the “good ole days” …..which weren’t very good if you were a black American.

    With that being said, we have been a beacon of hope and Liberty the world over, having been a very blessed people overall.

    Looking to the nation of Israel is a great example of how even a chosen nation can go its own way, and succumb to the judgement of God.

    And mans list for power has always eventually ended badly.

    This nation will fall like every other great empire through out the annuals of history, and I think we will eventually be grafted into the global community like never before, and the Bill Of Rights will be a things of the past.

    It breaks my heart to see my nation that I love, slowly disappearing into something unrecognizable from when I was a young man.

      Then get out. Leave.

      it is recognizable it is called NAZI GERMANY TRUMP is the new hitler dictator and worse

  • tax slave

    “there are more than 4 million addullt websites on the Internet, and they get more traffic than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined”

    I think this is because it is measured in gigabytes or bandwidth. A video is much more GB than Amazon and Twitter and most people don’t pay a monthly bill for Netflix.
    It would take thousands of webpage changes on a site like Twitter to equal the bandwidth of one video.

  • R.C. Gerber

    Bottom line: God’s word is “written” and cannot be changed. Prophetically the world is going to cave to the desires of the Antichrist. This, despite any popular enthusiasm for nationality due to the current Trump administration or any other nationalist administration. America is going to fall right in line with the other nations in a world wide government infrastructure. That being the Kingdom of the Antichrist. it is a matter of God’s prophecy. It will happen. That sounds pretty fatalistic, I know. But, the summation of a man’s life is fatalistic. Either he accepts Christ as Savior and fatalistically ends up in Heaven with Christ for eternity, or he rejects Christ as Savior and ends up in the fires of Hell in total separation from Christ for eternity. It is man’s choice, one or the other.

    The world is a mess. It’s what happens when God is taken out and everything is left to man to fix.

  • James Staten

    John Price wrote a book called “The End of America”, and in it he gave the abortion figures since Roe vs Wade passed in 1973. We have aborted approximately 60 Million babies, but adding to this evil, our country started approaching the nations of the world with strings attached to our financial aid. You want our money then you allow abortion. It is my understanding that only a handful of countries refused? It is estimated since Roe vs Wade passed America has been responsible for over One Billion Abortions World-Wide. Judgment is Coming. Your only hope is 1st Corinthians 15:1-4.

    • psphilip

      judgement is comning hahahaha reality check abortin is not the end and btw somestate s are crinializing stil lborns and GOP is cutting funding for birth control and socia lservices that the reality notyour FAKE faith simple fACt we are NOT a theocracy and our laws are madebased on the bacis premiise ALL people are equal and you as supoosed educated man are NOT allowed to dictate to women as chattle aNYMORE

    I was stunned when I discovered that the U.S. economy had only grown at an average yearly rate of just 1.33 percent over the past 10 years, and that is the exact same average yearly rate that the U.S. economy grew during the decade of the 1930s.

    You don’t average exponential sums!!!! Exponential sums cannot be averaged arithmetically. Find the end value and take the CAGR.
