Greeting's,

I also as of late have heard a great deal about this world distancing itself from America trend.

Perhaps it is high time for what's left of America to begin again, to rebuild it's house better than ever before !

To those who do not like us or are determined to do all they can to disrupt and slander our nation ..... of course we would truly be much better off without these folks for the long term.

The magnificent history of this great nation is still being written and will continue to be written in even greater terms long after our detractors are ground into the dust ! So Mote It Be !

Long Live America The Great! Thanks Y'all / Old Sgt. Lamar

I really have never seen many except for those so dependent really relying on america.Bascially there is a loud voice here to let so mnay opther countries depend more ont ehmsleves in things like foreign aid. The more independent they are the better really.

Decoupling is a good thing. If we slow down again, we won't drag the whole world down with us like in 2008.

The USA selects which nations/causes they want to influence and do it out of our own best interests. Rarely, do our dollars come without strings attached. And as long as our economy is the biggest and most robust in the world, others will want to partake in the opportunities. I seriously doubt it will be in our nation's best interest to see China pulling the world's strings. Problems that we do not get in front of seem to have a way of biting us on the a$$!
