    None of these. Climate change and the GOP.

      Saying the GOP is a threat is so ignorant and divisive. Both sides are necessary because they balance each other out.

      We’ll all be wiped out by the side effects of climate change. The GOP means nothing.

      Maybe that's not a bad thing (from the perspective of Earth and other organisms). If we are gone, Earth would regain balance in few 10k to 100K years and that's nothing in geological time scale. Earlier the better I guess

      Climate change is the long term. GOP is near term.

      GIP base prevents a long term solution . Trump is biggest step backwards ever. Will kill us all.

      Trump won’t be alive long enough to feel the destruction he causes so I guess he doesn’t really have to care huh

      Warp zone, he just denied climate change. He was one in 20 nations that refused to join Paris climate accord st g20. I don’t know what else you want me tell you.

      @amazon: Trump supporters would definitely see it differently, like oh he is so capable. In their view, climate change may be nothing more than a conspiracy theory. Sad!

    You missed out the biggest one: Climate Change.

    Lol I woulda said that the United States is the biggest threat to itself.

    its important to agree on what is the ‘united states’ before evaluating threats

    • IBM gösser
      Really? Is there any degree of ambiguity on what "United States" refers to?
      Dec 3
    • Microsoft Ranveer
      What does it refer to?
      A country on the globe

      But half the population has a particular vision for the nation, while the other half has a drastically different vision. As evident from the options itself, the OP thinks one generation’s vision is destructive, if that is their vision at all.

      So people first need to agree on what ‘the united states’ stands, what its ethos is, and then you can evaluate threats.

      You do realize that the United States is a country, right? People live inside a country. No matter what the people think, the US is still what it is. Stop conflating.

      A country is nothing more than an ideology, that majority people confirm to. That ideology can be the myth of a religion(theocracies like Pakistan, Saudi) the myth of a constitution(the USA, India) the myth of a shared history, or the myth of fear(china, russia)if that myth starts cracking, like it already has, according to some of the options in this very post, those cracks are the threat to established orders. So the biggest threat is not really any of the options that OP has written, but the very fact that he is keen to jott down these options, just to antagonize a few people and feel victorious in their agony

      I see what hairs you're splitting, but its beside the point to the OP's question.

    • Clover Health / Engdoenfh
      Also, the myth of a shared history? You seriously just lost all credibility. hahaha don't forget the myth of the globed Earth.

    • Microsoft Ranveer
      Why? Shared history is consciously or subconsciously used by many societies as a binding factor. The fact that a king is mythically respected and adored by two sets of people even though, as of today, they might be in different socio-economic classes, with one tottering in poverty and the other filthy rich, is testament to the shared belief in history. Happens in many ex-monarch countries. Belief in shared history a very powerful myth that can hold societies together.

    To be clear, the threat is not China, but the Chinese communism totalitarian government.

      For practical purposes it’s the same thing. The Chinese Communist Party has their influence everywhere.

    Have to go with China. Mainly because they are funding campaigns to sway millennials to embrace socialism and when they buy into the propaganda those millennials in turn then encourage radical Islam & open borders. Along with all the other stupid commie BS they push.
