    Maybe not the one single issue, but the failure of the Republican Party to hold to the Conservative principles they were sent to Washington, by the voters, to uphold. They had a golden opportunity to clean up a lot of mess, but instead they were sucked in by the business-as-usual allure of money and power and were voted out, and replaced by this quandary of crap we have now, by frustrated voters looking for so called “change.” I also think that GW could have done a better job in the 8 years he was in office. All in all, I see gross disregard for the will of the people. :texas:

    Public schools indoctrinating people that it is OK for the different parts of the government, particularly the federal parts, to use powers not given them by the people for "the public good." Basically, we forgot to limit the powers of the Governments that we have.

    IMO, there is no one, single thing that is the cause, because it is the culmination of many political, social, and economic causes. I'd add that people in America have little or no appreciation for how much societal factors are playing a role in our downfall.

    The New Deal and the passing of the Social Security act started us down the slippery slope to where we are today...

    The Community Reinvestment Act nearly destroyed our financial system...

    I would have to say that it is Political Correctness and Liberalism that are the driving factors in the decline of western Society...
