America, I fear, is becoming a 2nd tier nation. Like Poland, we will still have an economy, but not a robust, influential one. Like Argentina, we will still have airports, bridges and roads, but our WWII-era infrastructure will keep collapsing. Like the Phillipines, we will have manufacturing and technology, but other nations are outpacing us in telecommunications, medicine, transportation and engineering. Welcome to the 21st century America. We have a seat for you----at the back of the bus.
