The United States Is Becoming A Third World Country

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

    In the old days, Americans would derisively speak of “third world countries” that were plagued by high crime rates, corrupt governments, severe economic problems, and an overall lack of civilized behavior.  Unfortunately, the tables have turned, and now we are becoming a “third world country”.

    The thin veneer of civilization that we all used to take for granted has been steadily disappearing, and our nation seems to become a little bit more degenerate with each passing day.  Of course, this didn’t happen overnight.  It has taken decades of decline to get us to this point, and now our decline appears to be accelerating.

    If you have ever visited a foreign country with a major crime problem, you probably recall the unsettling experience of suddenly realizing that you are the prey and that the predators on the streets won’t hesitate to take advantage of you if they sense an opportunity.

    Sadly, many Americans now feel like that on a permanent basis in their own local communities.

    In recent years, crime rates in our core urban areas have absolutely skyrocketed.  For example, the Daily Mail is reporting that carjackings in some major U.S. cities have risen by up to 510 percent

    Major cities across the US have observed carjackings spike by up to 510 percent in a ‘disturbing’ trend some are attributing to lax punishment and a shift in driving habits.

    In line with an overall rise in violent crime across the nation, cities such as Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and New Orleans are experiencing a jump in violent vehicle takeovers as critics slam criminal reform systems.

    Other forms of theft has become absolutely rampant as well.

    Footage of thousands of discarded boxes and packages that had been stolen from cargo trains in southern California shocked the nation so much that California Governor Gavin Newsom felt compelled to go down there and check it out for himself.

    Once he got down there, he actually used the term “third world” to describe what he was witnessing

    Last week, the governor visited the site as an effort was already underway to clean up the shredded boxes after looters broke into railcars to steal Amazon and UPS packages.

    “What the hell is going on?” Reuters quoted Newsom as saying amid the aftermath of the railcar thefts on Union Pacific train tracks in downtown Los Angeles.

    Newsom said the scene “looked like a third world, these images, the drone images that were on the nightly news.”

    For once, Newsom was actually 100 percent correct.

    This sort of thing shouldn’t be happening in a civilized society.

    But even when we catch criminals and take them to jail, they are often put back on the streets very quickly.

    In Detroit, a drug dealer that doused his pregnant girlfriend with lighter fluid and set her on fire “was granted a $5,000 bond” and is now free to continue terrorizing those around him…

    A Detroit drug dealer was granted a $5,000 bond despite allegedly setting fire to his girlfriend who was 27 weeks pregnant with twins, burning 60 percent of her body and leaving her critically-ill.

    Convicted drug pusher Devonne Marsh, 42, reportedly doused his 26-year-old girlfriend with lighter fluid and ignited her on fire after the pair had an argument.

    Of course, crime is just one piece of the puzzle.  Inflation is out of control, there are widespread shortages all over the country, basic services are breaking down, this pandemic has exposed rampant incompetence and deep corruption among our health authorities, and our streets are filled with drug addicts, homeless vagrants, and scam artists.

    As our country deteriorates at a very alarming pace, an increasing number of Americans are blaming the Biden administration for our woes…

    “Downhill, divided, doubting democracy, falling behind, and tuning out — this is how Americans are feeling as they’re heading into 2022,” Democrat pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research Associates told NBC News.

    Biden’s approval remains in the low 40s (43%) and 72% of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction. NBC News reports more than 70% saying that in back-to-back polls has happened just six times in the poll’s history, according to the report.

    And another recent survey found that just 19 percent of Americans “strongly approve” of Joe Biden’s performance at this point…

    Only 19 percent of likely voters strongly approve of President Joe Biden’s performance, down three points in two weeks, a Monday Rasmussen poll revealed.

    After Biden’s two-hour press conference last week in which he was questioned why 49 percent of voters believe he is mentally unfit to be president, 49 percent also strongly disapproved of Biden’s presidential performance, a 30 point differential.

    Certainly, Biden has been a complete and utter disaster, but all of our problems are not solely his fault.

    It has taken decades for America to reach this juncture, and things are getting worse with each passing day.  I really like how Victor Davis Hansen summarized the current state of affairs in one of his recent articles

    Hard Left “woke” ideology has all but obliterated the idea of a border. Millions of impoverished foreigners are entering the United States illegally — and during a pandemic without either COVID-19 tests or vaccinations.

    The health bureaucracies have lost credibility as official communiques on masks, herd and acquired immunity, vaccinations, and comorbidities apparently change and adjust to perceived political realities.

    After decades of improving race relations, America is regressing into a pre-modern tribal society.

    Crime soars. Inflation roars. Meritocracy is libeled and so we are governed more by ideology and tribe.

    We are so deeply divided, and there is so much anger and hatred in our nation today.

    And a house that is divided will surely fall.

    If we really want to behave like a third-world country, perhaps we should eat like a third-world country too.

    In fact, the elite have already been strongly promoting the idea that we should all become accustomed to eating bugs

    A quick search of the World Economic Forum website reveals an obsession with the idea. Here’s a small selection of articles from the last few years: “Worms for dinner? Europe backs insect based food”; “Good grub: why we might be eating insects soon”; and “Fancy a bug burger?”

    The house journals of global capitalism, the Financial Times and The Economist, take a similar line. Both publications advocate for entomophagy beneath perky headlines such as “Eating bugs: a culinary idea with legs” and “Why eating insects makes sense”.

    Doesn’t that sound fun?

    Actually, at the rate that global food supplies are tightening, bug-eating may become quite popular sooner rather than later.

    We live in such troubled times, and I have a feeling that they are about to become a lot more troubled.

    But I don’t plan on eating bugs.

    And I don’t want to live in a third-world country.

    Unfortunately, our politicians don’t listen to people like you and me.

    They are just going to keep doing what they are doing, and we are all going to suffer the consequences of their disastrous decisions.

      1. Well, I don’t know much about third world country’s bug-eating habits.

        I do know we have plenty of Roadway flat snacks around here to tide us over the lean times. Lay em in the sun in a ziploc and in a couple days they are full of nutritious bug protein crawling around.


        • Got any mushrooms? 😛

          • 1/27/2022 News.
            Headline: Wisconsin Assembly Unanimously Votes To Withdraw Biden’s 2020 Electoral Votes
            Link: ht tps://

            Good News. Lets Keep the truth coming, and shut this horror show down. Just need a few more states to follow suit, to over-turn this Election theft scandal.

            From the article: WISCONSIN>
            Biden currently sits at 306 electoral votes from the 2020 election. Should Wisconsin withdraw these electoral votes, it would bring his total down to 296.

            A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win an election.

            The U.S. Constitution exclusively gives individual state legislatures the power to conduct elections and assign electoral votes.

            • If you honestly believe the election is going to be overturned, you’re even dumber than all of your previous comments on this board portray you to be…and that is EXCEEDINGLY dumb. I have to say, you trumpsters are a modern medical marvel. It is absolutely amazing your brains have the horsepower to make your heart beat and your lungs breathe. Y’all are truly too stupid to live. It must be the racism, bigotry, and misogyny that’s keeping you idiots alive. Ah, HATE, the fountain of youth…

              • Mr. Darwin. You obviously need much prayer. And you also need to tat the word gullible on your forehead.

                • Fuck you 🙂

      2. BECOMING a third world country? ……

      3. I think we passed the
        “is becoming” phase
        a long time ago.

        • Yep! The moment trump was elected in 2016 our country dropped like a festering turd into the toilet. Thank you, trumpsters, for ruining what was once a great country.

          • You are the reason we developed the phrase “dumber than a rock”. Take your snowflake idiocy to the next planet – nobody will buy it on this one.

      4. “becoming”?

      5. Check out the new song from k-rock we the people! Its a special epitome of let’s go Brandon! Hallelujah! The shit is about to hit the convid fan!

      6. Almost right Michael, America is a 3rd world country for the majority of people living their already.

      7. America already IS a third world country. Just drive around or walk the streets (very few do).

        America noticeably started down the path of becoming third world in the early 1970s. It accelerated in the 1980s as the drug and gang wars ramped up. The 1990s were kind of a stalemate in the trend but then it accelerated again after the 2008 financial crisis.

        The simple facts are this: no country in history has attempted the level of racial, ethnic and cultural diversity as the US is doing. And so there is no historical example of it ever working. Talk to a flaky liberal and they will tell you everyone is equal but there actually is no evidence for that. Cultures vary hugely, regional, ethnic, racial journeys have been starkly different through human history.

        There are still people on earth who wander around in loin clothes, others who still haven’t figured out the wheel, or how to get ahold of clean water. Still hundreds of millions leach off the foreign aid system that showers them with surplus food and medical supplies, enabling their populations to explode beyond their ability to generate wealth and sustain civilisation.

        Those are the raw facts of life. The US ONLY brings in the teaming masses of the third world to exploit them for cheap labor. Conditions are still pretty bad in most places that the US sounds like it might be a better deal.

      8. The United States Is Becoming A Third World Country
        The Democrat’ plan of “Equity”. Everyone equally poor, everyone equally living in poverty, everyone equally repressed, of course with the exception of the ruling elites.

      9. Who manipulates the strings of the sock-puppet leading the executive branch of our Federal Govt.? Most likely Susan Rice, a retread from the Obama years. The same person that repeated the Benghazi-fiasco “was caused by a little-known movie” LIE for a month after it was widely proven false. Biden will take the blame but others are making these awful decisions.

        • sock puppets have no strings

      10. This is ALL by design, we are now third world because our new work force IS illegals and they are prompted to VOTE Demon-rat

      11. Canada is to. They’ve allowed third world scum/freeloaders in. They couldn’t fix their own countries so they come into ours like ants and pollute it.

        • Where did your inbred line originate? Maybe it was YOUR ancestors who should have stayed where they were.

          • Nah. We’re all born and bred here. No inbreeding I’m proud to report. I’m aboriginal to. I’m proud of that to. ??????

      12. How To Destroy A Nation 101:

        1) Legalize crime.
        2) Legalize Drugs.
        3) Criminalize Police and all policing.
        4) Open Borders – allow millions of uneducated, poor, unemployable, and even criminal (also unvaccinated) illegals to enter the country.
        5) Give illegals voting rights, free food, housing, and medical care.
        6) End the 2 Parent Family, and incentivize illegitimate births. Have the state become the New Daddy to these fatherless children.
        7) Remove God from schools, businesses, and even the churches. Social Justice needs to take the place of all that “God Stuff”, plus don’t forget to abolish the Ten Commandments in the process.
        8) Dumb Down Society – Bread And Circuses.
        As long as the populace is mesmerized and kept busy with Hollywood, sports, TV, video games, the Kardashians, Beyoncé, and other nonsensical, irrelevant pursuits, society is too busy worshipping, and quibbling over nonsense, and won’t see that their nation is being DELIBERATELY and systematically dismantled before their eyes.
        9) Implement the Hegelian Dialectic in politics.
        Democratic vs Republican, while in essence BOTH parties are on the same side, and have the same objectives and goals.
        No matter what politicians say publicly, it’s what they do privately and when together that counts.
        10) Criminalize law abiding, tax paying citizens, and remove their right to self defense.
        Do NOTHING to stop gangs, drugs, sex traffickers, etc. while making it much harder for the law abiding to protect themselves and their families.
        11) Fear and Propaganda.
        Tell everyone that a “deadly disease” is in their midst.
        Diagnose that “disease” with a test that was never meant to test for the presence of disease (PCR), and run that test at 45 cycles to ensure that almost everyone will test positive for this disease.
        Then quarantine the HEALTHY, shut down businesses, churches and synagogues, and make sure that you implement asinine, utterly ridiculous, counter productive measures and mandates that will ultimately cause society to grind to a halt.
        Also allow the FDA to fast track untested, dangerous, and deadly mRNA/DNA “vaccines” that will sicken and ultimately cull the population.
        Oh, and make sure that government requires the populace to wear useless masks that have no ability to filter out viruses.

        Finally call Evil Good, and Good Evil, put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20-21 Paraphrased

        Just STOP COMPLYING. Do not make peace with evil.
