Do you think the world will be a better or worse place in 10 yrs?

This is an essay I had to do for school. All opinions, complaints, and followup is welcome. Make your own if you wish.

Will the world be better or worse in 10 years?

I think that the world will be a worse place in 10 years, because slowly, it is
deteriorating. We have people like George Bush causing unnecesary problems for the United States, and other
countries. America thinks it has the right to police the world, and thinks that its better
than any other country. Thats all a bunch of crap. Russia has the worlds most powerful and
skilled military for over 100 years. China has the largest workforce, and is the sole
mass producer of products for the United States, and 90% of the world. Iraq has the largest
supply of oil in the world.
Back to the matter at hand, George Bush thinks that he can police the world, and go
into other countries and just take what isnt his. I am from Ukraine, and have great pride in
my country, but the mass American public is just out of touch with what patriotism really means.
Americans think that wearing underwear with the american flag is acceptable. Thats basically
saying "America is kissing my ass". George Bush in his short 4 years of "governing", if you
can call it that, has ruined the United States, and Iraq. He didnt go for weapons of mass
destruction. He went to get daddy's precious oil. Bush is the single reason that makes me
think twice about living in the United States. He has ruined the world, and if Americans can
elect someone as dumb as him, then whats next? In 10 years, I bet Jimmy Joe Bob will make a law
saying that cousins must marry.
I dont want to imagine the world in 10 years, and frankly dont want to be around
to see it.

I don't know...a few weeks ago I saw this thing on Discovery about some Mayan thing I believe, but it was basically about how they could tell the future, and alot of things had come true, and one of the upcoming events was in like March of 2010 a comet hits the Earth, and in about 6 days every living thing is dead

But if it doesn't happen, we're probably going to be living in poverty and disease...I sense another depression in the stock market coming, and with GM probably going bankrupt...well no jobs here, it'll suck

But who cares about tomorrow live for today!

All of this talk of death is making me getting into my deep thoughts of what happens if you die, because I wouldn't want to live for eternity in heaven/hell, or be reincarnated as an animal...it would get annoying after some time...

im gonna make this promise. on monday, im gonna open up a thread about this theory im writing to disprove religion and science apart, and show everyone that God is the perfect combination of everything, specially religion and science.

im not gonna talk any further about it (even if someone replies or argues with me). but i will try to write a thread on monday and show the simple version of my theory about such things. im actually writing it due to an argument with my dad in law, my mother, my gf, and a few ppl whom ive had discussions with about religion and science.

I'm not a Bush supporter, but I disagree with all the crap that people are saying. Bush grew up in politics, and went to Yale. I don't care who your dad is, Yale isn't going to accept retards. It's like being anti-Bush is some fad. Kind of like crappy commercial catch fraises that are kind of funny at first, but quickly get REALLY annoying. Even Green Day has managed to piss me off, and used to like Green Day alot. They used to sing about masturbation and pot. Then their albums stopped selling. Then they make political lyrics and all of a sudden millions of 13 year old goth girls are wearing Green Day shirts and saying George Bush is stupid.
The worst part is that alot of people don't know what the hell they are talking about. They say "no blood for oil", but when gas gets above $3 a gallon they're usually the first to moan about it. Ask them what they would have done in response to 9/11. There is a good chance you'll get something along the lines of " I can tell you what I wouldn't have done...bomb Iraq!" Ya, they all know what not to do. I'll admit Bush was triggerhappy, but sitting around with our thumbs up our asses probably would have led to more attacks. Bush and the rest of the government has succesfully kept the war on foreign soil by keeping the pressure on the Middle East. The U.S. is far from perfect, but if you are gonna gripe, please have a good topic. If you're repulsed that The Terminator is governing an entire state, or that South Korea is ready, willing, and able to bomb us, I'm sure you'll have some good material.

I would like to know how exactly the U.S. has been "ruined" in the last four years. Zombies aren't roaming the streets, and gas is still cheaper then most countries.

Which means we are basically their employers. I'm not saying that we ARE the most powerful country, but your argument here contradicts your main point. China needs us to buy their goods more than we do.

I think you're looking too far into that. We are the ones wearing the underwear, and we'll be the ones to interprit it.

My crazy rant is over.

heh...everybody's entitle to their own opinion, i suppose.

however, on that note, i wholeheartedly disagree. science is a man-made creation, whereas "god" (if there is one) is the embodiment of everything man aspires to be yet never can. science is proven data, religion is a collection of stories.

Disagreeing with his opinions is one thing, but putting down a group of people in general is ignorant. Many people would be offended.

**** it's time for another world war, about time!

Really, I don't care what happens in the world at all unless it affects our nation. No other nation has a government purely like ours and I believe that's something good, albeit when it is RUN WELL. For our nation though, in 10 years if a Libertarian president isn't elected I think our defecit will make the USSR's downfalling look like candy to a baby. I'm not a gigantic G W Bush fan (I did vote for him, mainly because Kerry was a tool and Badnarik wasn't my kind of Libertarian), but I understand he's been through more shit than any other president past Nixon. First inheriting a dot com recession form '98-'00, THEN 9/11 in less than a year of taking office THEN the dealing with the Taliban (mainly in Afghanistan) THEN the war in Iraq...and this is all just in his first term. While his 2nd term is really just getting under way it's still under a lot of heat.

I for one think the war in Iraq was handled well and still is, let me get this right, we took over the largest midde-eastern nation (militarily speaking) in a matter of less than a year and lost only 2000 personal for the past 4 years. We took Germany over in WW2 in about the same time but lost a bit more than 2000 men... Maybe it's because we value life so much more than then? With, you know, unborn babies being the exception to that... Honestly I dont think it could be run much better, can we stop the bombings they do every so often? No, but once we get their new government on their feet it will be THEIR problem not ours as we will remove our mainstay military from there. Another big pluside is we will probably FINALLY have a good trustworthy partner in the middle east that's considered a superpower over there (besides Saudi Arabia/Israel). Have we justified the loss of over 2000 men? I dont think that anoyone should comment on that but the people that are over there right now willing to give their lives for the protection of not only OUR nation really but Iraqis more than anything.

I thin kthe spending in our budget needs to be cut, DRASTICALLY. First off, the eocnomy isnt run by the president, it's ran by cycles. It's inevitable that we will have a recession once every decade or two, the president has very little to do with economy growth and fall. I think income taxes should be cut WAY more across board though, and hopefully one day we can FINALLY have a FAIR flat tax at around 17-20% for everyone reguardless of income. If this is the nation of entrepreneurs we need not to KILL their small businesses in TAXES! Tax cuts tend to stimulate economic growth while rasing taxes, does well, the opposite. Let's continue to cut taxes. But most of all more than anytihng the government needs to do it's job and become WAY more fiscally conservative. We need to either elect a truely conservative republican to office (not the neo-conservative Bush is) or a Libertarian to get this budget under balance. Cut out some of these heavily bureaucratic agencies that get WAY too much funding and dont know where to spend it.

The EPA needs to really get cut, all they do is whine nowadays, they dont even try and fix things!

Welfare needs to be completely dismantled and thrown out.

Medicare and Medicaid should be less funded and/or dismantled.

Social Security shouldn't be as socialistic as it is right now and people SHOULD be allowed to have their separate PRIVATE Social Security accounts.


Bottom line - our government is becoming way too socialistic. But that doesnt suprise me as every free nation ever has never made it, they all eventually turn to socialism, communism or dictators. We need to stop it!
