Que Pasa ?

Russian academic Igor Panarin predicts that the US will fall and be divided into parts of other empires. Maybe it's time to learn a new language.

Not to be too cynical but that's how multicultural empires usually end i.e. Roman Empire, Austria- Hungary, Soviet Union etc.

@ classical one - Multi-cultural, yep! But not multi-racial.
We only need to look a little further north to the French speaking parts of Canada for evidence of this.

Hmmm... guess I better learn French or hurry up and move to NC so I can stick with English.

Multiracial is an even harder obstacle to jump. Just look at this country, race relations are always bad and simmering below the surface. Our two biggest contenders for super power don't have any of those problems: China and Russia are both strong monocultures.

@ RM - Oui!

@ classical one - Yes, mono-CULTURES not races.
Africa is both monos - many problems.
Ireland just got past "The Troubles".
In the Middle-East the wars are tribal.
Russia just broke up with all of the "nia' or "via" states over culture - not race.
It'll always be something.

How does he figure that Florida won't got to Cuba?

Has dude travelled in America?
Not to say we won't split up but...
Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, and New Mexico would go with California over the Dakotas if they don't create thier own intermountain west (which would also include Utah, Idaho, and Arizona.)
The Carolinas with the Northeast? Is he serious? The Northeast will extend absolutely no further south than Richmond VA...most likey stopping in Alexandria.

I think our nation will end when those pesky Canadian's invade from the north and turn all our basketball courts into ice rinks.
