    The future of the United States is bright, indeed. I had doubts a short while back, but people are remembering how to speak up.

    We will always be powerful, perhaps the top superpower, but we will never try to stop someone from being more successful if they have their people's interests at heart. Oh, we'll protect our interests, but we have always cheered the success of other countries who serve their people first and their ideology last. Should everyone be a capitalist, a representative democratic republic? I don't think so, but there are going to be more, and we'll have to compete with them, and I'll love every second of it. Competition that isn't based on the slavery of a people (like China is close to) is to be commended and encouraged.

    If there is another superpower that grows above us, I suspect that we'll have a hand in making it that way. After all, we've been helping all our "older brothers" (older countries) for some time now. It would be nice if they could do it on their own so we could enjoy our youth and riches a bit more.

    European Union? Go for it! China getting more democratic and keeping it's power? We're with you! Russia regaining world attention but remaining a people-first state? Great!

    We'll be there, probably contentedly resting on our laurels until we're woken again. For now, we're awake and stomping our feet on the one's who woke us up unjustly. After they're dust, we'll go back to slumber and do business as usual, but we'll never be less than a giant.

    There has never been a world power that has remained there indefinitely; the U.S will someday experience a fall, as well.

    When will it happen? I don't know (hopefully not in my lifetime!). What will lead up to the downfall? Some thoughts:

    We can't remain at the top without a highly educated workforce. And while the world best education is available at America's public schools and universities, too few children are receiving that superior academic training and knowledge that will keep our nation competitive militarily and technologically. The reasons for this disturbing trend are myriad: a wrongheaded focus on basic skills, which deadens intellectual curiosity and kills a child's love of learning; a serious attempt on the part of some politicians to gut our system of public education, both at the K-12 and the university level; students who lack the support and nurturance they require and who are not pushed to achieve excellence by parents or teachers; and a pervasive anti-intellectualism that ignores the fact that academic excellence is the surest way to financial success.

    The United States lacks a thoroughgoing conception of the good life for its citizens. We have a great tradition of individual freedom that, I fear, will eventually backfire upon us. The nearly obsessive focus on personal fulfillment has distracted us from the civic demands of public life: concern for the oppressed and downtrodden, participation in self-government and other forms of public service, putting the needs of family, friends, and neighbors before our own, etc.

    Other countries are not sitting around waiting for the U.S. to implode upon itself. The world is becoming a more competitive economic arena. On the horizon the possible future superpowers of China and India loom.

    These are just a few of my concerns about our future. I sure hope I'm wrong!

    I think there may be another country, probably China, that will become close or an actual world power. I think we will usually be considered the first superpower for a long time because of being the only world power that hasn't lost that title since it first started being used. I think we will stay very dominant in the military, but I think unless we can start doing more production in exporting out of the states we will continue to hurt economically. I think we are actually leading in technology, but not the everyday use of technology, in the technology of weaponry. Though all it takes is one nuclear bomb from China to change all of this.

    China should draw level then pass over the next 10 years, depending on alliances there is no way to predict where the balance of power will lie after that. If you're lucky the US will go the same way as the British Empire and become a mature middle power during this century.

    I'm not so sure about that. You are creating too many enemies around the world. China will become a real world power, and as long as there is nothing better available then oil, the Islamic states will have a lot to say how powerful the US will be.

    With illiterate morons such as yourself, the U.S.S.R. will probably rise again. Before asking dumb questions, why not learn how to spell? Perhaps a little grammar lesson wouldn't hurt you either, stupid. If you've got an opinion, at least know the language. Anyway, in answer to your dumb question, the United States of America will dominate the world for the forseeable future. Know it and be happyl Stupid.

    well we really aren't the only superpower since the United Kingdom ,India, China, and Japan, along with Russia are super powers to. They may not be superpowers in terms of military force but in economics they are and also in technology too. We truely are the only Military Super Power that's it.

    I think that thru some twist of fate, against all odds, and totally opposed by both political parties, we will miraculously get a president with real leadership abilities, who actually cares more about the country than kissing the butt of his own party bigwigs, and if that happens, America may be renewed in the eyes of the world and its own citizens.

    We can hope, right?

    I think the rest of the developing world will catch up and pass us,while we blow our budget on wars in the name of liberty or Christianity or whatever. We'll end up like Russia with corrupt politicians running the country and a ton of nukes that we won't use. We won't have any influence in the developed world and will be making our alliances with corrupt third world leaders.The future is bleak unless we change our ways.
