Is America reaching its end phase ?
Empires don’t last forever . America empire may be now reaching its end phase.
1. Signs of American end phase.
American Congress is now in the hands of half-citizens (each congress member with dual citizenship has only half-loyalty to America) and is under tremendous pressure from lobbyists.
Congress and Supreme Court are fighting hard to take-over Presidential power: Supreme Court tries to incapacitate Executive power (as granted by the Constitution) on many cases then gives Congress the final says on those cases.
American politicians are now denouncing populism of their own President Donald Trump and of Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban . They are actually denouncing democracy as envisaged by the US Constitution.
Propagandists are everywhere. It looks like they are denouncing their own system and are trying their best to confuse voting citizens .
Politicians are now forming their own class, called the politicians class which allies with the media to push their own propaganda to empower themselves and paralyze the country.
Wars are now being waged against multiple countries in all regions of the World. 
Tax is ever increasing (for politicians to spend and for making aimless wars), housing becomes non-affordable to many and health care becomes non-affordable. 
Domestic surveillance is rampant, even the Presidential candidate Trump has also been under surveillance. [9, 10, 11]
2. Signs of the end of a republic
“When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.”― Benjamin Franklin
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
― Alexander Fraser Tytler
The above list of signs follows that method used by investors to predict the much feared coming collapse of a share market.
Added after 2018 September 23:
military-industrial-congressional complex (MICC)
DYSFUNCTIONAL GOVERNMENT SYSTEM
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to selfishness;
From selfishness to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.
It’s pretty obvious the West is in the lower half of the sequence right now.”
Contradictory rules in the US have hiven rise to the foĺowing conditions:
From the LA. Times: 40% of all workers in LA County (10.2 million people) are working for cash; and not paying taxes….. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers….. In LA County, 5.1 million people speak English; 3.9 million, speak Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people, in LA County. (All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare….Over 70% of the United States’ annual population growth, ( and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York), results from immigration.
