In what way(s) might the United States cease to be, how likely are those scenarios, and what would happen as a result?

I'm looking for fact-based conjecture or realistic fiction, primarily, but I'd like to hear the opinions of various MeFites as well. The more in-depth, the better.
I expect that there are many, many ways the U.S. might collapse, and many more things that might happen afterwards. How likely is each scenario? I'm interested in what could happen now; please, no alternate WWII or Cold War scenarios.
Thanks as always, MeFi!
