Economic Similarities: Is the U.S. Following in the Footsteps of Ancient Rome? (Part 2)

The third video in this series takes a look at why the Founders viewed democracy with such contempt. The video defines a few important economic terms.  The fourth video compares the types of economic systems.  It also states that morality is a vital component under a Republic.

Hi Teresa, we came to your blog from your comment at Political Realities. We congratulate you on it!
We agree with many of the historical similarities with Rome that you point out. We also think that we have further issues with our present behavior and that of modern Greece - and great part of western Europe. We point some of these out in our piece "Lessons From Greece: It got the Slave Class that America Wants to Create". You can find it at
Our Blog "Robbing America" is a conservative political and economic narrative. We like your position on issues and we will list your blog in our "Favorite Blog List".
We wish you continued success.

Hi Teresa, there are MANY parallels to the fall of USA and Rome, I hope we can stop the decline.
As they say, "those who do not learn from histroy are doomed to repeat it".
Thanks for posting these interesting vids.
I hope your week is off to a great start and you're not getting hammered by too much snow.

Very frightening indeed.

Amusing Bunni,

I am optimistic about us being able to stop this decline happening in the USA.

"those who do not learn from histroy are doomed to repeat it".

Exactly and unfortunately true.

Just a little snow so far... Hope your not getting hammered with snow either. Spring can't get here soon enough :)
