Do You Believe the Greatest Threat to America is Foreign or Domestic or Both?

Abraham Lincoln:

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Henry A. Wallace:

Fascism is a worldwide disease. Its greatest threat to the United States will come after the war, either via Latin America or within the United States itself.

Erik Prince:

The greatest threat to our freedom and prosperity is not al-Qaida, the Taliban, Iran or even China. It’s an idea, the idea that we can spend our way out of our problems without tightening our belt and paring down the very bloated government.

John Ratcliffe:

The People’s Republic of China poses the greatest threat to America today, and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom world-wide since World War II.

Haile Selassie:

Above all, we must avoid the pitfalls of tribalism. If we are divided among ourselves on tribal lines, we open our doors to foreign intervention and its potentially harmful consequences.

Narrator, Idiocracy

After several hours, Joe finally gave up on logic and reason, and simply told the cabinet that he could talk to plants and that they wanted water.

We all see enemies or threats across a broad spectrum. In terms of the question, a threat can be both human or nonhuman sources- specific people, governments, movements, social, weather, extraterrestrial, ect.

As an addition to the original question-

a. When did you begin to believe your answer about it being the greatest threat?

b. Do you believe we have a realistic answer and how long before the answer is available?

c. Do you believe there is a tangible end to America if the threat is not resolved?
