Decline Is A Choice

Facing the choice of whether to maintain our dominance or to gradually, deliberately, willingly, and indeed relievedly give it up, we are currently on a course towards the latter. The current liberal ascendancy in the United States--controlling the executive and both houses of Congress, dominating the media and elite culture--has set us on a course for decline. And this is true for both foreign and domestic policies. Indeed, they work synergistically to ensure that outcome.

Charles Krauthammer's essay, although rather lengthy, spells out the direction the liberal left is taking this country on the world stage. Irreparable harm is being done to the world's balance of power which only a reversal of our domestic spending deficits and defense drawbacks can cure.
