Because of dissatisfaction with the way our nation was being run, and several people believing that our president is a tyrant who abuses his power, president barrack Obama got assassinated, similar to how the Roman senate conspired against and killed Julius Caesar out of fear that he was abusing his power.
Because of poor treatment, and unequal rights for those who chose to immigrate to our country, all of the immigrants work together to take over our nations capital in Washington D.C. This is similar to how the Germans were dissatisfied with the way they were treated in Rome, and how they took control of the country.
Because of over spending by the leaders of our nation, primarily because of the health care bill and welfare, similar to the corrupt and rich leaders in Rome, and their over spending and paying money to support the poor in their country, the economy fails, virtually eliminating the middle class, causing the income of the upper class to stagnate, and forcing the majority of the population into poverty.
As the prices of petroleum reach all-time highs, and the economy is in distress, with unbelievably high taxes, and banks and real estate agencies closing, resulting in foreclosures/repossessions, and causing those who already struggling just to survive even more financial problems, our nation's farmers can barely afford to run their farms, and are being forced to shut down their operations. Because of this, the food supply diminishes, and our nation enters a new era of hunger. This is similar to how Rome's food supply shrunk before their downfall.
As the new health care bill which was signed into law by President Barrack Obama starts to take effect, taxes begin increasing exponentially, causing people to become distressed, and reducing the amount of money made by American workers and Corporations. Because we are effectively spending money that we do not have, our nation gets even further into debt, and it is harder to find health care due to the struggles fought by privately owned health care corporations. This is similar to how tax raises in Rome helped lead to their downfall.
Throughout the duration of the Iraq war, we have spent over $900 billion dollars of taxpayer money. This is similar to how the rich in Rome spent tons of money, causing the economy to weaken, and hurting those who were already poor. It is also similar to how much the Romans invested in and cared about war.
In April 2010, the United States government bans the drilling of oil in coastal areas. This is the cause of a shortage of natural resources, which results in inflation, and causes prices of natural resources to rise. This is similar to how Rome had problems with natural resources, and inflation, which made the lives of its citizens harder.
Because the pay and working conditions in countries to the south of the United States are so much worse than they are here, many citizens of those countries decided to immigrate the the United States. This is similar to how Rome had problems with the Germans seeking shelter in their country because their countries were being invaded by the Huns.
