What Does the US Look Like in 2020?



What will the country look like? Will we still be dealing with massive decifits and entitlements (will the entitlement and deficit problem be dealt with to any great degree)? Will Obamacare be fully implemented, and if so, what will the impact be IYO?

For instance, 9 years ago, the US was at war in Afghanistan, the economy was actually starting to ramp up with unemployment being pretty good and housing booming (we all know why know). We were discussing going to war with Iraq. Nine years later, we are now in three wars, the economy has been a complete disaster - as bad as it has been in at least 30 years, we elected a one term Senator with a Muslim name that was amongst the most liberal voters in Congress and the global economy appears to be very grim. In 2002, I don't think anyone would have predicted those outcomes.

It will be interesting to see how people react to scaled back entitlements and any hard crack down on immigration.

I figured that answer would pop up. I am hoping (blind hope, I know) that since the economy seems to be cyclical, by 2020, maybe things will have turned around.

I do still believe that the US is the best country in the history of the world and the phenomenon of American Excellence and ingenuity will come up with a solution to all of this IF WE CAN GET government out of the way.

Edit: As to specific predictions, I think we will still be running deficits, but perhaps not as bad. I think we will be out of any specific wars (yet not out of the regions we are currently in right now - similar to the 1980s). I think weed will be legal in probably 1/4 of the states. Gay marriage will be legal in 1/4 of the states. I think that the Algore going green movement will have lost a ton of steam based on scientific data...I think solar data is going to take precedent eventually in the scientific community. I think China's economy will collapse within the next 9 years. In essence, I still think the US has what it takes to be the last man standing when the EU and Asia fall economically.

In all honesty, how would I or anyone here know?

We'll probably still be in debt but still relatively rich compared to the rest of the world, most likely at war with some shithole country, and have a President that at least half the country likens to Hitler/Satan.

If Obama is reelected. If a dem is in office between now and 2020, we will be in debt. With a Repub in office, lesser chance of debt, depending on the guy.

There's not a chance in hell we're out of "debt" by 2020, no matter who's in office.

Yep... Reagan, Daddy Bush, and Dubya proved that theory.

Cynical but probably accurate

Thats why i said depends on the person. I they are a true fiscal conservative, a LESSER chance of high debt.

If a dem is in, we'll have the same shite Obama is doing now. Rising debt, unemployment, inflation, with no proposed solution except to blame the other guy.

ETA: To the dems, the most important thing right now is beating the R's, the economy is about #10 on the list of things to do.

Of the Presidents in my lifetime (Reagan through the present time), I think he was the best and most qualified, particularly regarding foreign policy. I'd take him over any politician out there today.

However, he didn't do much to scale back government spending (with the exception of defense spending as a result of the end of the Cold War) and to assume that just any Republican will shows a lack of understanding regarding recent Republican Presidents.

I agree with this. However, at least the R's are talking about the economy. The D's are nothing but crickets, and then they change the subject to racism.
