    The USA had a GREAT run, didn't we, Europe? 😀 What do you think is in store for us next? Civil war? A great reformation? An age of enlightenment? Disgrace? From 1945 to about 2001, We popped off just like the Dutch and the Brits but now it's time to go back to simply being a world power.😀 Over 50 years of "ruling the free world"...Now that our influence is waning, and the empire crumbles around the edges, I'm curious to see what we'll accomplish in our post-empire years. I'd ask my fellow Americans, but we're having an educational issue here recently and... 😐What do Europeans see as our future, as we slowly pull back from the world stage?
