5. Yeah, I took a year of Latin about 25 years ago, so mine is
really rusty. I ran it through Google Translate just to be sure, and it came out "The future is always first with America" or something like that.

I was pretty sure that was not what you meant.

And, I might be wrong about this, but you might try 'futue' for 'futua' as a third conjugation active imperative form.

It would make a cool bumper sticker.
