Glenn Beck – America will survive past 2016
Our old pal Glenn Beck was on ′Stossel′ last night on the Fox Business Network. John Stossel had Beck, along with John Bolton, Pat Buchanan and other guests discussing whether or not America is in decline and growing weaker? Glenn Beck thinks that America will not survive past 2016 as a republic. That we are on the ′Road to Serfdom′ and there is very little that can be done to alter that course. Pitch-fork Pat was probably even gloomier, citing how demographics have trapped Western Civilization in a death spiral. While they fear for riots and chaos here in the United States, the general consensus is that the bottom will fall out of Europe, first, starting with Greece.

John Stossel did not give the ′doom-n-gloomers′ a free ride. He, along with Libertarian guest Nick Gillespie, argue that things could not be better. Sure, we face difficult economic times, particularly with our ever growing National Debt and endless government regulations stifling free enterprise. But the world is doing just fine with life expectancy increasing and poverty, real poverty, in decline.
Technology and innovation have been keeping civilization′s head above water for many years now. Breakthroughs in medicine, new methods of extracting oil and natural gas, and ever faster and more capable computer chips all add up to a world with nearly unlimited future potentials. But do we have the moral and intellectual foundation to hold civilization together long enough to get past the ′headwinds′ we currently face?
If he is right, then Glenn Beck saying America will not survive past 2016 as a republic puts a very large fly in our buttermilk. Beck sees little coming out of Washington to reform our government enough in time to prevent calamity. John Bolton and Pat Buchanan, who were also guests on last night′s edition of ′Stossel′ on the Fox Business Network, were also not optimistic given our current state of politics. John Stossel will be aired on the regular Fox News Channel Saturday night if you wish to watch the exchanges yourself.
