In Deep Decline?

When Gore Vidal passed away recently, I was watching an NBC Nightly News report in which Brian Williams said that Vidal believed America was in a sharp decline.

In contemplating this statement, I realized that my own belief is America rose to superpower status during World War II. That was further enhanced through our space exploration, strides made during the years of the Cold War and our advancements in technology.

What has happened to America in the past 20 years? Do you believe we are in sharp decline? Or are we experiencing part of a cycle that will rebound and we'll be stronger and more powerful than ever?

Who do you think the top three superpowers are in the world today?
