19. The way things are going, the Empire is already crumbling.
What will the states do among the ruins of the late great United States? Parish as well? Some people will be calling for their state's secession eventually. The U.S. has just gotten too big and we have such a mindset that we have some God-given right to hold sway on the World. The reality is that we do not and we are not the only country on the planet. We are losing the great experiment big time.
