Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

American Flag Tattered - Public DomainWhat has happened to America?  Please show these numbers to anyone that does not believe that the United States is in decline.  It is time for all of us to humble ourselves and face the reality of what has happened to our once great nation.  For those of us that love America, it is heartbreaking to watch the foundations of our society rot and decay in thousands of different ways.  The following are 50 facts that show how far America has fallen in this generation, but the truth is that this list could have been far, far longer…

#1 According to a survey that was just conducted, only 36 percent of all Americans can name the three branches of government.

#2 Only 25 percent of all Americans know how long U.S. Senators are elected for (6 years), and only 20 percent of all Americans know how many U.S. senators there are.

#3 Even if you include same-sex couples in the numbers, the marriage rate in the United States is at a 93 year low.

#4 For the first time ever, single Americans make up more than half the U.S. population.

#5 31.1 percent of American young adults in the 18 to 34-year-old age bracket are currently living with their parents.

#6 One out of every ten teen girls in America engages in “self-harm”.  Cutting and burning are the most common forms that this “self-harm” takes.

#7 One survey found that 85 percent of all young men in America and almost half of all young women in America watch porn at least once a month.

#8 A different survey discovered that 64 percent of American men of all ages view pornography at least once per month.

#9 The Internet can be used for great good, but it can also be used for great evil.  It is being reported that 83 percent of U.S. boys and 57 percent of U.S. girls have been exposed to group sex while on the Internet.

#10 One survey discovered that 25 percent of all employees that have Internet access in the United States visit sex websites while they are at work.

#11 There is an epidemic of porn watching among federal employees.  For example, one Treasury Department worker said that he viewed 13,000 pornographic images within the span of six weeks because he did “not have enough work to do“.

#12 An astounding 30 percent of all Internet traffic now goes to adult websites.

#13 Right now, 30 million Americans are on antidepressants.

#14 Americans account for about five percent of the global population, but we buy more than 50 percent of the pharmaceutical drugs.

#15 Americans consume a whopping 80 percent of all prescription painkillers.

#16 According to a study conducted by the Mayo Clinic, nearly 70 percent of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug, and 20 percent of all Americans are on at least five prescription drugs.

#17 Approximately 60 million Americans have a problem with alcohol addiction.

#18 Heroin traffic in New York City is at a 20 year high.

#19 Of all the major industrialized nations, America is the most obese.  Mexico is #2.

#20 Back in 1962, only 13 percent of all Americans were obese, but it is being projected that 42 percent of all Americans could be obese by the year 2030.

#21 70 percent of Americans do not “feel engaged or inspired at their jobs”.

#22 40 percent of all workers in the United States actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968 after you account for inflation.

#23 Small business ownership in the United States is at the lowest level that has ever been recorded.

#24 It is hard to believe, but 56 percent of all Americans now have “subprime credit”.

#25 The United States has the most lawyers per capita in the entire world.

#26 The United States has the highest incarceration rate and the largest total prison population in the entire world by a wide margin.

#27 While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the U.S. national debt has grown by more than 7 trillion dollars.

#28 During the Obama years, sexual assaults in the U.S. military have soared to an all-time high, and most of the assaults have been male on male.

#29 According to one absolutely shocking study, 22 military veterans kill themselves in the United States every single day.

#30 The top Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives is Nancy Pelosi.  The top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives is John Boehner.  More often than not, they seem to be working together.  Is this really the best that America can do?

#31 There are more than 3 million reports of child abuse in the United States every single year.

#32 At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the United States lives in a home without a father.

#33 18 percent of all women in the United States say that they have been raped at some point in their lives.

#34 It is estimated that one out of every four girls will be sexually abused before they become adults.

#35 Approximately one-third of the entire population of the United States (110 million people) currently has a sexually transmitted disease according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

#36 Every single year, there are 20 million new STD cases in America.

#37 America has the highest STD infection rate in the entire industrialized world.

#38 Americans in the 15 to 24-year-old age group account for about 50 percent of all new STD cases each year.

#39 It costs our nation approximately 16 billion dollars a year to treat our sexually transmitted diseases.

#40 According to one survey, 24 percent of all U.S. teens that have STDs say that they still have unprotected sex.

#41 In the United States today, more than half of all couples “move in together” before they get married.

#42 For couples that have children that are just “living together”, two-thirds of them split up by the time they have a child turn 10 years of age.

#43 For women under the age of 30 in the United States, more than half of all babies are being born out of wedlock.

#44 According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately two-thirds of all Americans in the 15 to 24-year-old age bracket have engaged in oral sex.

#45 Suicide has now actually surpassed car accidents as the number one cause of “injury death” in the United States.

#46 In a massacre that is almost unspeakable, more than 56 million American babies have been slaughtered in this country since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

#47 Approximately 47 percent of the women that get an abortion each year in the United States have also had a previous abortion.

#48 The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever fought combined.

#49 About one-third of all American women will have had an abortion by the age of 45.

#50 The United States has the highest abortion rate in the western world.

    The abortion problem is big in the USA. Recently, I was cutting through a parking lot next to a Planned Parenthood office to get to a restaurant for lunch when I noticed a ~20 year old exiting the Planned Parenthood building with her mother.

    The ~20 year old was clutching her tummy and looked distraught. Then as I kept driving, there were about five Planned Parenthood workers waiting with clip boards on both sides of the parking lot driveway for convenient curbside registration for the next child murder. It was a sick experience.
    Both Sexes are to Blame for the Abortion Problem
    Men are at fault for making sexual advances on unmarried women. Unmarried women are at fault for allowing the male sexual advance to go forward.

    • Gay Veteran

      and how many unwanted babies have you adopted?

      • Handog

        So, if Coffee cannot afford to adopt children he cannot be anti-abortion?
        Have you heard of orphanages? I wouldn’t want to start out in one but it sure beats being sucked down a drain.
        Why do liberals always blame someone other than the irresponsible mother and father who created the sad situation?

        • Gay Veteran

          “So, if Coffee cannot afford to adopt children he cannot be anti-abortion?….”
          Coffee wants to impose a burden he is NOT willing to bear on others.
          “…Why do liberals always blame someone other than the irresponsible mother and father who created the sad situation?”
          uh, great strawman. the women has the right to an abortion so I’m not blaming anyone

          • Handog

            You have a problem understanding the PERSONAL RESPONSIBUILITY concept don’t you.

          • Gay Veteran

            nope, but you have a problem understanding the FREEDOM concept don’t you

          • Handog

            The child should have the freedom to be born. YOU are the one who stands against FREEDOM.

          • Gay Veteran

            oic, you want to turn the woman into a SLAVE.
            vile hypocrite, not willing to adopt but oh so willing to FORCE others to do what YOU want

          • Handog

            No ones going to be a SLAVE drama queen. The woman can get a job. Or my tax dollars will take care of the child thru welfare.

            Those of you who support Planned Murderhood should be forced to carry the ripped off arms and legs of the newly aborted child to the waste basket.

            Wait. That wouldn’t bother you would it? You’d be celebrating the mothers new found freedom.

          • Gay Veteran

            Libertarian Karl Denninger rightly points out that you cannot be free if you do not control your own body.
            those of you who oppose abortion should be forced to adopt the unwanted baby.

          • Thomas Hart Sinclair

            See what happens when homosexuality is permitted and encouraged, instead of being rated a criminal offense and a mental aberration as it was not so long ago?

          • Gay Veteran

            mental aberration? project much?

      • collapse emminent

        Great straw man there. What is it to you, mud brain? Homo’s, like their female allies are a bane on a great nation. Their thinking is perverse because they themselves are.

        • Gay Veteran

          typical troll s**t, begone

    • seth datta

      Males have always been expected to make the first move. It’s the women’s fault for sleeping with tons of men because it’s apparently socially acceptable and them having dysfunctional relationships, kids and divorcing on a whim. This is why society today is messed up.

      • collapse emminent

        I would never marry a western female. They are absolutely worthless. They are not loyal, they are not honest, they are not mothers, they are useless gov’t worshiping wh ores. Always demanding more, more, feed me ! Treason, they name is western womyn.

        • town bike rider

          Smart man. Now go educate the youngins about the bane known as American woman.
          FYI, for women – 30 is the new 50. Reason being is because these ‘modern’ gals have had as much co ck at 30 as their mothers did at 50.

          • Thomas Hart Sinclair

            I have a friend who only dates Asian women. He claims that most American women of the last 40 years not much different from “guys with tits” (his words, not mine). I’m not sure that I totally agree with that, but I know where he’s coming from!

      • Coffeedrinker

        Men Need Women and Women Need Men
        If men try to make it in this world without women then the men will likely kill off each other; women are needed by men as a distraction to this self-destructive pursuit.
        On the other hand, a women trying to make it alone in a male-dominate world will likely be killed off males. In this case, the women needs a male partner for protection. Once the other males see the women is paired they will move on to other pursuits.

    • collapse emminent

      I’m calling bull on your white knighting attempt to shame men for the sins of females. 60 million children have been slaughtered by your wives and daughters. This is but one more reason that men are rightly disgusted with females. I know this, if /when the forces of evil penetrate my area, I will be using females for cover, body armor. American womyn are garbage, pure and simple. Do not marry them, do not aid them, do nothing for them. Men, your life has worth and value far beyond what benefits a female can extract from it.

  • Mike

    You always hear people say things like God is going to judge this nation for these evil things (listed above). Unfortunately, this is God’s judgment that we are experiencing in our nation today. The sewage has surfaced and it is flowing into every home.

    • seth datta

      We live in a globalised talmudist society, for sure.

  • quixotefoo

    So many times we are prone to blame government or “the other political party” for the state of the nation. While government’s war on drugs and war on poverty account for some of the issues listed, the rest point to “us”. We the people of this nation are obscene, narcissistic pleasure seekers. We have no dignity and do not nurture moral characters and attributes. Until we change, the government won’t.

    • `
      “We the people of this nation are obscene” etc.

      Worse than others would be if they had the same options?

  • James Rogers

    Most of these were caused by feminism and unrestrained female hypergamy

    • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

      Feminism, as defined by the New World Dictionary of American English (third edition ) is “the principle that women should have political, social, and economic rights equal to those of men” Hypergamy, according to the same source, is “marriage with a person of a higher social class or position”. Now let me ask you, what exactly is the problem here: men marrying up or women marrying up, and what does this or feminism have to do with any of the statistics mentioned in this article? Please provide an answer ( either you or one of the three individuals who agree with you).

      • collapse emminent

        We all well acquainted with the dictionary definition of your religion of man hate and perpetual victim hood.
        We all know that ‘definition’ is both a lie and meaningless. The fact is that feminism is for weak, stupid, spoiled, entitlement princesses and no one else. Your religion will bring about of your own physical destruction as it has wrought your spiritual destruction, ( There are no feminists in Heaven, as there is nothing perverse and unclean allowed). It is through your religion that America has been ruined. Do some genuine research and you will see what demon spawned it. I laugh at you deluded, satanic wh ores and your illusion of ’empowerment’. Feminist = human garbage and are to be treated as the rabid, pathetic animals that they truly are.

        soon you hags will not have to invent ‘rape culture’, because your lord obama and the demoroids are busily importing it. I will laugh, watching you hags being raped, beaten and killed because that is what your treason deserves. Same with your tradcon sisters. I have no problem giving you genuine equality, that is something you man haters fear.You and your daughters will pay with your lives while I and most men drink a beer and watch. We’re not afraid to defend this nation. Both this nation and it’s females are unworthy of our sacrifice.GFY while I enjoy the decline.

        • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

          This is a joke, right? Okay, lol.

          • collapse emminent

            No. The joke comes when the border jumpers are standing 20 deep to get a piece of you. That’s when we laugh. How many man shaming articles can we expect then ? You thought it was bad because American sons ignore you things and refuse to marry you used up slots. Imagine when They refuse to save you from the destruction wrought by your own hand.
            Maybe gov’t sugar co ck will save you things… lmao. Never mind cupcake, go back to your man hating and perpetual victim hood, the coven needs every weak female it can delude.

      • Thomas Hart Sinclair

        I think he means that feminism is a Marxist construct, that was constructed by the Frankfurt School Marxists as a weapon of mass destruction to be used against the majority culture in the West. There is nothing wrong with women having political, economic, and social rights equal with men, so far as it goes. The purpose of Marxist-created feminism was to downgrade and eventually destroy the family unit, leaving folks “atomized” and at the mercy of the state, which would also substitute as “Big Daddy” for all the women who were to be “freed” from the “bondage” of having husbands. To date, things have worked out even better than the Marxists had hoped for.

      • “Feminism, as defined by the New World Dictionary of American English (third edition )” etc.

        Tell that to SCUM (Society For Cutting Up Men).

    • town bike rider

      Yes sir. Hos do not housewives make, nor nations do they build.
      Leave them to their destruction, avoid them like ebola.

  • Colin

    From reading about history, I have learned that in every decade, in every century, there were those who would say that the moral and social decline in a civilization was the result of sexual deviancy. This belief would invariably lead to the persecution of those who were deemed “sexually deviant”. I believe those who became the persecutors were themselves imperfect in their own lives and that those imperfect beings should have tended to their own lives first, before implementing laws and practices that unnecessary injured the “others”. How many have been punished, through reeducation or death, by those who believed the nation needed cleansing? And, after the cleansing, was the nation any better than it was before?

    As for the killing of unborn children, I do agree that it in some cases that it was tragic that the child was killed. This action was precipated by what some would believe to be a selfish motivation by the mother, like she viewed the child as an unnecessary burden. However, what of those cases where the child never had the potential of growing up into adulthood, because he or she was born with a fatal deformity? Or, if the mother was seriously ill during the pregnancy and her life was threatened? Many mothers in history have died during childbirth. Finally, what if the mother was raped, and she became pregnant, then the mother would not only have to work with the PTSD of the event – for rape is a trauma that never goes away for the mother (I should know as my mother was raped by her brother and my father and sexually molested by a dentist and was diagnosed with PTSD) , she is expected to carry a child that was tainted with shame? I believe that no law should be an absolute; I believe that the best kind of law is one that is practical and offers choices. For the rape victim, she should be given the choice of an abortion or counseling. Counseling I think might give the woman the tools needed for healing and for her to recognize that her child is a blessing. In too many societies, including ours, the victim is left to work out her issues without the benefit of aid; she feels shamed and, being vulnerable, is more susceptible to the blind ignorance and derision of members of society.

    • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

      I think that any nation would be better off if it were cleansed of the likes of your grandfather, your uncle, and that creep of a dentist. No human being should ever go through any one of the ordeals your mother has suffered. If she is still alive, I hope she is well. I disagree with Roe vs. Wade. I believe it is an example of judicial overreach; yet I hope that it is never overturned for the reasons you have listed: and also because I don’t want to see our cruel and punitive state laws and prosecutors sending women and girls to long prison terms for getting an illegal abortion.

      • Colin

        My mother is living day-to-day, even after she got counseling for her PTSD. I don’t know what happen to my uncle or the dentist; I know my father is alive in Indiana. I am permanently estranged from him and, since my childhood, my mother has been both a mother/father for me.

        • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

          Oops sorry for misreading; that was your father not grandfather. I do not blame you for not talking to him. Your mother is a strong person for not only surviving the abuse but also for becoming a loving parent in spite of it.

    • CynicalGuy42

      Rape is not justifiable. But it punishes the child, not the rapist, and the rapist is the one worthy of punishment.

      • collapse emminent

        98% of rape accusations are completely false fabrications.
        False rape accusers should face the same sentence as the ‘rapist’ would have received.

  • K

    In the past there have been cultures who worshipped death. The Mayans, among others. You need rain, kill some people. You need a good harvest, kill some people. There solution for most of lifes problems, kill some people. We look back on them as insane barbarians. In this Country, through abortion, we kill for convenience. We take a human life, because if it was allowed to live, we would be inconvenienced. Take a hard look, and then tell me. Are we not even worse, than they were.. .

  • jim

    According to historians, today’s age is the most peaceful time in history.

    Start studying history and you’ll soon learn that the stuff they did back then makes ISIS look mild by comparison. Most atrocities committed were either because of religion or economic gain.

    • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

      True, and yet not very comforting. The human race is incapable of ridding itself of war.

    • collapse emminent

      Economic gain using religion as a cover to make it ‘righteous’.

    • Gay Veteran

      yeah, if you ignore the million Iraqis who died because of our war of aggression against Iraq

      • jim

        i think the catholic church alone killed about 68 million in the dark ages, plus there were zillions of other groups killing at the same time & on down through the centuries past then. there’s less violence now because fear of the modern war technology is helping keep some peace in place (machine guns, missiles, nukes, etc.)
        technology = deterrent

    A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but 
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not
 to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but 
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman 
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free 
cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment 
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was 
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

    The Immoral Majority will lead this country all the way back to barbarism as long as Christians keep laying over and taking it.

  • GeneP54

    A lot of the stats are high because of public awareness of the issues. Incest and rape have always been a problem, but there are more reported now, unfortunately, still not all of them. Even abortion is out in the open now where it wasn’t before. It’s hard to compare stats when there really is no base-line, only ‘reported’ issues.
    Our country has gone down the drain so quickly! In 2008, for most of us Islam was a religion ‘over there’ and we knew very little about it. Now we hear much more about it than we do Christianity. We need to turn back to God, family units with participating fathers, and good education that is factual, not fallacy.

    • collapse emminent

      We do not have genuine Christianity in America anymore. It is churchianity, the cult of estrogen, whatever you want to call it. If genuine Christianity reigned, we would not have the disgusting culture that we do. The fact is that our culture is a reflection of the vile females and queers. Men, walk away from this perversion. Let them die by their own hand and receive their eternal ‘reward’ for their treason against God and man.
      Relish their destruction, mock them as they suffer, lol@ their cries for help.

        Both. We did hear a bit more about it after the Iraq war started, but not as we know it now. It wasn’t until the current administration that it has become a household word with meaning.

    What happened to the American Dream?

    It has been spent.

    The Dream, long time ago, meant hard work pays dividend. That’s gone by the early 80’s. Replaced by a purely financial American Dream. The Financial dream is to make money anyway possible, or spend money anyway possible, preferably both, to the max.

    The decades of the 80’s to 2010 were spent on this new dollarized American Dream. And America spent the whole Dream, just about all of it.

    So now there is no more Dream. What’s left is trillions upon trillions of debt. The downsizing and devolution of American society is now proceeding. You will find hypocrisy, contradiction and desperation everywhere. People will blame and turn to religion. Talks of separation and breakup routine. This is a well-documented process throughout history. It ends when it ends.

  • Tim

    Yeah, he obviously has very serious problems.

    • jim

      So someone who takes the “think outside the box” approach to solving a problem has mental problems? I can bring up pleanty of examples throughout history where society thought someone was crazy if they did a certain thing that’s considered normal by today’s standards. Did you know that if you wore shorts in public over 100 years ago in America they would’ve put you in the insane institution?

          I think it was published in Time magazine. They wouldn’t just put anything.

          I noticed you leave a lot of ignorant comments like this.

    Do you think that females killing 60 million children is awesome ? Where do you think this perverted nation is going ?
    Here’s
    an uncomfortable fact, females are by and large the majority of child
    abusers. Mommy will torture and kill her children and tools like you
    sympathize with her, or at the very least, offer up excuses.

    We the people of the United States of America will form a more imperfect Union and destroy all that has been built previously because we the people of the United States of America cannot tell our government, of which we the people have the power to dismantle, tell our state colleges and universities to stop increasing the rates of unaffordable tuition so that we the people can become more intelligent than other countries and develop a more secure and stable United States of America for the God sake of our own national security! We are on a direct path, due to our lack of intelligence on how to reinforce and strengthen what has been built by others before us, of destroying our economy, religious beliefs, infrastructure, proven moral safe values, due to our sociological indifferences and allowing people from all over the world to come into the United States without being forced to learn our constitution and become US citizens. As a result? The United States of America will soon become the “United Nations of the Earth” and we will erode as a nation and will no longer exist as an American people. We are giving our country away for free!!! The national debt will never be balanced!!! All the countries of years gone by that we have helped or rebuilt will not return the favor! When will we learn. Never mind, we can’t afford to learn.

    How Reagan destroyed America

    Posted on July 22, 2012 by RThompson

    “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’” –Ronald Reagan

    “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘Republicans in control of all three branches of government.’” — Me, correcting him.

    When can it change, when will it change. MAybe we have dug ourselves into a hole too deep to pull our selves out of now, maybe the only way to get better is to start over. There can be no compromise with so many different people virtues and egos, may I say America WAS the greatest country in the world, and I salute you one more time for good.

    This is one of the worst articles I have ever read.

    Rather than showing how far things have fallen in a generation, it seems more like someone’s personal gripes about things.

    First let’s talk about things falling in a generation. This is based on what? To show something has fallen, you need to show where things were as to where they are now. Has this person ever looked at statistics before?

    Let’s just take #34, 1 out of 4 girls will be sexually abused. Ok, so what were the numbers in 2000? 1990? 1980? 1970? Yes, maybe the 1 out of 4 is a fact, but that doesn’t show things are worse. Maybe when actually looking at the numbers this is better than things were 50 years ago, but without analyzing both numbers, you don’t have any proof, only speculation.

    Then there are other things that really doesn’t mean things are worse. #3 marriage is at a 93 year low. So what? How does that mean that the USA is falling? Or what about #4 singles make up more than half the population? This is bad? Also, since we are talking about the “population” that would include children, and elderly who may have spouses that passed away, etc. which is a large number of the population. So before putting facts like these, you need to show the actual numbers that make up those “facts”.

    Then you have the writer complaining about things that doesn’t mean the USA is in a decline, he’s just complaining about things he feels isn’t right.

    But if you’re going to write 50 “facts” that shows how far America has fallen in a generation, you really need to have real facts and based on proper statistics, not just what you think. This is why we have so much going on, where people are stating “facts” but really it’s just speculation, even if it’s based on some truths.
