I would say the United States is too big to NOT to Fail.
Which definition of United States is the writer talking about here ?
This one ?
TITLE 28 > PART VI > CHAPTER 176 > SUBCHAPTER A > § 3002
(15) “United States” means—
(A) a Federal corporation;
(B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or
(C) an instrumentality of the United States.

Wanna know if the USA is to big to fail?
Read this book:
One Second After
by: William Forstchen
We fail big time. And the scary fact is the thing that makes us fail is OHHHH SOOOO REAL!!!
One - Three Nukes detonated about 75-100 miles above the USA. Good by to everything electronic. Can anyone say EMP? That's what the nukes will cause detonated that far up.
Not sure. The author basically defines a nation and suggests that the United States, as a nation, is irreparably divided (politically at least).
Sums it up nicely.
The author suggests that the seeds of failure have been sown internally. While external threats like a nuclear engagement would surely create unfathomable havoc, the focus was on the internal mechanisms driving secessionist discussions.
"Corporation" has more than one meaning, Sam.
The original idea of the "United STATES" has been corrupted by those on the left (mostly) and those on the right. They took what was supposed to be union of states - with a small federal government, and turned it into a country with an overreaching federal government that has worked ceaselessly to turn the states into nothing more than administrative zones for the land mass the feds rule over.
So we fight back and forth over who is in power in the federal government, because it dictates every piece of our lives. The thing that MANY people on the left and right don't get - is that if you just shrunk the federal government back to it's constitutionally defined powers, most of the fighting might go away. Because the people within each state could be freed to define their lives the way they preferred.
If it takes secession to make that happen - then I am all for it.
NOTHING else seems to be working.
Give it a rest, dude
Can't happen soon enough, IMO. Things are irretrievably broken.
No, size has nothing to do with the probability of failure, only with the amount of damage when it happens.
Things are NOT irretrievably broken. Do not shrink into a defeatist mood. Americans can still restore their Constitution using Constitutional methods. If we defeat the Democrats in next year's Congressional elections we can bottle up Obama just as the Gingrich Congress did to Clinton. The new Congress can then repeal what's left of the Porkulus and legislate tax rate cuts to revive the economy.
The first step is to become personally active in politics, and get as many of your friends and neighbors to become active as well. Go to your town's Council meetings, Board of Ed meetings, and any public hearings relevant to your interests as a citizen. Find and support (with both money and time/effort) good candidates in local elections and Congressional/Senate elections. It's time for the real grass roots to show their power against the special interests and their statist machine.
Right. The states have become basically puppets of the Leviathan that lurks in Washington, DC.
The states rights issue took a big hit when Abraham the Terrible decided to murder over a half-million Americans over it.
