In an outburst live on TV the Texas representative, Ron Paul argued the years of U.S. dominance on the international stage are numbered, and the end is not going to be pretty.
Republican Ron Paul has warned that America is about to meet a “sudden, cataclysmic end”, and compared the United States in 2018 to the final days of the Roman Empire.
While the US economy is on the up, the politician claimed the country’s militarism that could lead to their eventual downfall. We’re gonna have a sudden, cataclysmic end which is sort of what happened to the Soviet system.
It’s not going to be identical. Our states probably aren’t going to break up, but I do sincerely believe that we will no longer be able to afford our capitalist empire around the world.
The USA is involved in a number of conflicts around the world, including the wars in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Mr Paul added: “Our empire, although we don’t claim ownership to it, it’s a lot of money and a lot of influence, and we threaten with weapons and we use sanctions to hold our empire together, but I think that’s coming to an end.”
Washington threatened to pull the USA out of NATO if other countries fail to honor their commitment to pay 2% of their GDP on defense spending. Trump has also said he will pull out of international trade agreements such as the North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, arguing that it is a bad deal for the US.
