if they can bring back baseball america will last a long time. romans went through hard times as well. america was the shit a few years ago and it will be again in another few years. these are the ups and downs of politics. we have to go through this time of dispair to reach another time of plenty.

It's projected China's economy will surpas the US in about 3 decades, it already bumped england out of the number 4 spot. I think the US will lose its #1 world super power spot with in the next 50 years. I don't think the US will ever not exist, well, at least until a central world government forms.

The US can be the super power for years to come, some problems it is facing is lack of good education, laziness, illegal immigration, and lack of assimilation. Although the US is excellent at assimiliation, lately it is lacking in that category.
I think as countries become properous the population gets lazy because they have everything they need, they loose the drive they once had, and slowly disintergrate.
You can see that in American today, the new kids are not as hardworking as their parents and grandparents.

i think that the ballgame has changed a ton in these past 100 years as to longevity. i can't really see any of the superpowers falling fast without pretty much armegeddon. as for a country liek china surpassing the US in economic power, i can't see that happening either. if just a small portion of the third world used as much energy as the average perosn in the first world does, we would run out of resources right quick-like. so i think there would have to be a radical advancement in technology for some of the crap countries like china to get to the point where they can have a proportionate amount of economic power in comparison with their size.
hopefully the whole militaristic state thing will become passe in not too long though. what are we supposed to do fight more world wars for like 100 years more worth of gasoline?

Albeit I believe that the US will go through a politcal revolution. I just dont see people supporting Repubs and Democrats indefinitly. With all the manipulation, collusion and LOSS of freedom not because of invented terrorism but rather the US govt. They will eventually demand change.

As for America lasting as the sole political/military superpower: it will be a long time before anyone replaces America's top spot. Main reason: America is not an empire, it's a hegemony...yes, there is a great difference.

I dont have to mush info on this subject, but history tell us that every nation had a golden time then another nation take it place.

forever is a possibility, here let me explain you why
the US will change and evoluate into a supra national power, it will take north america, then Europe and the western world, then south america, australia some part of Asia to compete with new threats, then this entity will change into a world global power who will govern the one into one federal entity.
we wont see it, but in less than 10 generations maybe.
not every nations has a golden period, the US can stand his golden period for many centuries ahead and it is quite easy to do so. People talk about china and all, china is a paper tiger, their economy is the equivalent of my city, and 98% of the economy is owned by British and american interests. It takes one move out and the chinese economy is gone, china knows it very well, militaryly, they got their ass kicked for thousand of years, they dont know how the world work, still they dont care they do their little things like they always did.
the US with the economic power it has, still guys my country is in the top of the richest countries in the world and still the US is 10 000 times bigger in term of growth, so dont come and tell me India, china and so onm they should have risen since, they missed the bus, they will follow like everybody else.
