    Add to that the fact the US once had fairly liberal and business friendly policies. This can return, it's in our blood.

    Europe is largely hostile and bureaucratic and has been for quite some time.

    Cut spending, cut taxes, cut regulations and this economy will recover like a buoy submerged hundreds of feet once it's cut free from its anchor.

    It's a smart move by China. They can leverage their economic power over more nations than just the US.

    The claim that the Chinese hate America is absurd. They simply want political and economic sovereignty, just like any nation would who could grab it.

    Again, they get a choice... with or against. Liberal socialists only have one way - their way. And the ground you speak of is only ground if conservatives capitulate that it's ground. Otherwise, it's called something else.

    Ok - because when I say "Chinese" I mean government/party, not the common people.

    The Chinese hate, detest and loath the thing called Obama. He is a joke to the Han.

    Why do you have your lean as other, when it is obvious you are a conservative (not that there is anything wrong with that)?

    You, my friend, have absolutely no understanding of liberals. Or reality. If you honestly think liberals are less open to the opinions and ideas of others, then I don't even know how to talk to you because you exist in some sort of alternate dimension.

    Most of my friends are leftists. I understand you folks real good. That's why I am so hostile to leftism. You folks think the ends justify the means. We can never work with leftists. They are untrustworthy.
