The US is like the Twilight Zone today.
The US used to love personal responsibility, freedom, morality, peace, and balanced budgets.
Americans are now embracing welfare, tyranny, immorality, war, and debt.
Americans who were taught to love freedom may have felt uneasy 35 years ago when DUI laws, DWI checkpoints, seatbelt laws, and car liability insurance laws were started, but most people felt that the experts must be right.
Pro-police state shows like "COPS" and "America's Most Wanted" were then aired, neighborhood watch groups were formed, "get tough on crime" candidates were elected, and laws allowing mandatory minimums, IMBRA, 3 strikes laws, curfews, police militarization, teen boot camps, school metal detectors, private prisons, and chain gangs were enacted.
Nanny state smoking laws then started appearing.
When 9/11 happened, the Patriot Act was passed, NSA wiretapping, no knock raids, take down notices, no fly lists, terror watch lists, Constitution free zones, stop and frisk, kill switches, National Security Letters, DNA databases, kill lists, FBAR, FATCA, Operation Chokepoint, TSA groping, civil forfeiture, CIA torture, NDAA indefinite detention, secret FISA courts, FEMA camps, laws requiring passports for domestic travel, IRS laws denying passports for tax debts, gun and ammo stockpiles, laws outlawing protesting, Jade Helm, sneak and peek warrants, policing for profit, no refusal blood checkpoints, license plate readers, redlight cameras, speed cameras, FBI facial and voice recognition, tattoo databases, gun bans, the end to the right to silence, free speech bans, searches without warrants, CISPA, SOPA, private prison quotas, supermax prisons, FOSTA, sex offender registration laws, and sex offender restriction laws were allowed.
Some Americans may have felt that rewarding criminal bankers with billion dollar bailouts instead of jailing them was strange when the economy collapsed in 2008.
Americans may have really started to worry when Obama extrajudicially assassinated Americans, endorsed NDAA indefinite detention, and Snowden revealed NSA wiretapping.
Now that Trump has clearly shown that he won't end the wars, pay off the debt, or restore the Bill of Rights, patriotic Americans cannot help feeling that all hope is lost.
Since the USA is a total police state, Americans are finding out that changing anything is impossible and that freedom is lost forever.
Maybe the worst part of the American collapse is learning that no one cares.
Anyone who supports endless wars, debt, and tyranny is considered to be normal and any American who loves peace, balanced budgets, and freedom is called a nutjob.
Americans have lost all touch with reality.
Americans do not know history and do not understand unintended consequences.
Anyone who is concerned about debt will be told that you can print money forever.
Anyone who is worried about tyranny will be told that the police state does not apply to white people.
Anyone who mentions US wars will be told that the USA is just killing sand niggers.
The US deserves everything coming to it.
The whole country seems to be committing suicide.
