What happens to a country without ... ?

What happens to:

A country without being united?

A country without a conscience?

A country without morals?

A country without the family structure?

A country without God?

A country without individual liberty?

A country without a constitution with its citizens?

A country without the freedom of worship of speech and a press that should act like the press?

A country without the right to keep and bare arms, so that you can protect yourself and your family?

A country without employment?

A country without private entrepreneurs and enterprise?

A country without secure borders?

A country without prosperity and integrity?

A country without private property rights?

A country without hope for the youth and a better future?

A country without a history according to actual historical facts?

A country without compassion and dignity?

A country without; makes me wonder; what happens to the country?
