Default WHO do you think is the CURRENT Biggest threat to the USA?

Who do you think is the CURRENT Biggest threat to the USA?
Who Should We Fear Most and why?

I'm just sitting here reading the latest Russia "concerns" and frankly I'm weary, every 3- 7years there's a new boogieman that the politicians of one or both sides wants us to crap out pants about.

But being raised as a kid made to hide under my desk for school safety drills in case of nuke attacks and then seeing the USSR collapse. frankly none of the threats presented since then have impressed me as very serious... militarily or otherwise.
Yep, ln the 1980s i grew extremely skeptical of the fear-mongering about various countries and movements and such.

When G W Bush 1st ran and said he was against foreign intervention and "nation building" projects I was 100% behind that. And 911 did NOT change my mind. For some reason Alqeda never seemed "BIG”, nothing like the USSR had been portrayed. Just a guy in the desert on dialysis with no army, navy or air force. But we were supposed to be in abject "terror" of what he might do next? And lose all our liberties to defend from AQ's POSSIBLE attacks?
Sorry I never bought it, still don't.

But others seems very concerned..
SO I'd like to know
Who do you think is the CURRENT Biggest threat to the USA?
and why?

I voted "other" and I see that I'm not alone.

To my mind, currently, the biggest threat to the USA is our enemy within.
We have abandoned respect for life and for each other. We have gone from consideration for minorities to virtual incarceration for the main stream. It's time to put the PC movement behind us, stop apologizing for our exceptionalism, and get back to being that shining city on the hill.

It's our debt which is going to bring us down.

We don't ever pay our bills....

Debt is just a number that gets kicked down the road for the next guy to deal with...

I don't think the debt is a threat per se. It's a symptom of the enemy within.

I voted Other as well. The biggest threat is the ruling elite, consisting of corporations and the corrupt politicians in their pockets. This has resulted in expanded federal powers and control over the people that the Constitution never granted to the government.

Look at Detroit and Chicago. There is no doubt that "LIBERAL ideology" is our biggest threat in the USA.......

Liberals will kiss the azz of our enemy to gain popularity as Obama did for 8 years. The libs will sell their soul for a few more votes and then flush the rest of the country down the shizzer to retain control. Look at Hillary/DNC and her handling of Bernie and funding of the dossier on Trump. The truth really is shocking when you sort out the BS from the facts.

I agree with you. I almost wrote that Democrats are the biggest threat, but RINOS are just as bad, so I didn't want to single out just one corrupt party.

Considering the deficit habitually INCREASES under Republican presidents...
And decreases under Democrat presidents...

Exactly who would be this "enemy"?
