Here are the results from a poll of RWN’s readers on the, “most serious threat to success and prosperity for Americans over the long haul.” There were 859 replies at the time when I compiled the answers.
Gay Marriage: 0%
Nuclear proliferation: 1%
Abortion / Declining Birthrate: 2%
National Debt: 8%
Reliance on foreign oil: 9%
Islamic terrorism: 9%
Government Corruption: 10%
Out-of-control immigration: 15%
Decline of Christianity 19%
Skyrocketing taxes & regulations: 25%
Personally, my top 4 would be national debt, nuclear proliferation, the decline of Christianity, and out-of-control immigration — in that order.
Nuclear proliferation in particular is way too low on the list. If enough nations get nukes, it’s only a matter of time until a nuclear war occurs or worse yet, some Islamo-crazy sneaks the nuke into a Western city and detonates it.
That would be a huge shock to the global economy at best and it would be particularly devastating to the nation hit. Imagine a half-dozen nukes going off in DC, New York, LA, Chicago, Houston, & Philadelphia — all in one day — without our even knowing which nation they came from.
Think that’s an unrealistic scenario? Let Iran get nukes and then wait 5-10 years until another dozen nations full of crazies have the bomb, too. It will seem all too terrifyingly plausible then, won’t it?
