US in Decline Like Rome Comptroller General Reports

The Comptroller General of the U.S. government, David Walker, has come out with a new report saying the U.S. is now facing many of the same factors that brought down Rome. These include “declining moral values and political civility at home, an over-confident and over-extended military in foreign lands and fiscal irresponsibility by the central government." Walker predicted the US is “on a path toward an explosion of debt”.
