Overview problem with United States

The conclusion that was met is that our economy’s downfall is the continuing gap between the rich and the poor. How you change this though – I think that the only way to change it is by improving education. I feel that in general poor people are less intelligent – brutally honest but true. So the continuing degeneration of education will mean the continuing degeneration of intelligence until our country’s economy falls. As stupidity rises so will religion. Because what comes with stupidity is the arbitrary lines that make life so uniform that characterize far right Christianity; if you do not accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior, you will go to Hell. This statement is run by fear, which will eventually lead us to become even more myopic and judgmental as a nation. The separation of Church and State will continue to degrade until they become one. And eventually our nation will become a Christian Nation completely contradicting what the Founding Fathers had in mind.
