No one will feed the poor when the nation falls. The freeloading parasites will have completed their purpose. Their purpose was to keep the socialists/fascists in power until the nation imploded. They were, and are, useful idiots. The usurpers think they will remain in power and the parasites will become their slaves. The parasites will either produce or they will be exterminated. Free men with an inclination to work and prosper will not make good slaves. They do make great patriots.
It's often good fun and sometimes revealing to divide American history into distinct periods of uniform length. In working on my forthcoming book on American migrations, internal and immigrant, it occurred to me that you could do this using the American-sounding interval of 76 years, just a few years more than the Biblical lifespan of three score and 10.

It was 76 years from Washington's First Inaugural in 1789 to Lincoln's Second Inaugural in 1865. It was 76 years from the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse in 1865 to the attack at Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Going backward, it was 76 years...
