    There is no doubt of that but it also seems to be slipping from the grasp of the American people. The talk of another American Revolution is now being discussed more openly, though I still feel the answer is more State Rights and far less power in DC. The free world cannot withstand the loss of the United States and Democracies throughout the free world should take this all very seriously.

    Did I say that, or are you so desperate to make an argument that you have to put words into my mouth?

    Do you mean like the rest of the world simply could not withstand the end of the Roman Empire?

    Yeah, that's it. The world is the same as it was 2,000 years ago.

    Harvard, was it?

    How would George Kennan respond to Nicaragua
    Nicaragua has been trying to build this canal for a looooonnnnng time.

    I don't know about any military planning for russia and china and whatnot with this but nicaragua sure as hell could use some financial stability that this canal could help provide. Panama and Costa Rica and even Belize seem fairly stable but Guatamala, Honduras and especially El Salvador... they seem in rather gang ruled dire straits.

    I am not sure what to order from Rosetta Stone, Russian, or mandarin Chinese?
    Implying Russia and China are communist. Hint: they're not.

    I know there are 'piles of documentation' critical of the United States and it was particularly commonplace throughout the Cold War. But for Americans to rely on that now for their understanding of US history just defies any sort of logic. It's like believing WWII anti-Japanese, anti-German propaganda. Leftists just never seem to get it.
    You never seem to get it either grant. You continue to call me a leftist, yet I'm hugely critical of the Obama administration. Also, propaganda is different than facts, you need to learn the difference.

    It may be a great thing for the Nicaraguan people, and they deserve it, but Latin American leaderships don't generally care much for 'trickle down' economics. The money will likely stay with Ortega, his family and friends, and the Chinese and Russian investors. I hope I'm wrong, of course.

    Yes, they're going free market capitalism while America turns left. It shouldn't be difficult to predict what will happen now..
