A lot of those stats are misleading.
The US hasn't fallen off economically...it just has fallen off relatively
Countries like China, India, Russia, have taken off economically. They have overthrown communist government, shaken off the damages of war, etc. and are growing. How is that the US's fault?
The argument they are using is similar to the liberal argument that the middle class has a lower % of the wealth now than they did 20 years ago. Yes, it is lower, but the pie has also grown tremendously. Overall, they are better off.
