Recently, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said we need a spiritual awakening in America.
But some online venters commenting on that statement were very pessimistic about the future. One seriously doubted any such thing will ever happen. Another suggested American and world history as we know them has only one more decade to run before coming to an end.
I regret to say this, but the evidence is on the side of those two venters. No objective analysis suggests otherwise.
