    If you care so little why not move to Cuba?

    Why not? Because you love the benefits of a Capitalist nation and its superior standers of living.
    Patriotism closely relates to nationalism, I don't have an attachment to the hilarious culture of America. Why not move to Cuba? I have no reason to, my family lives here.

    I don't care about patriotism, but if I looked at that view, it would be "unpatriotic" although I can care less about patriotism, as I've said.

    So in other words you love your idea of how you want things to be but no attachment to see them in action...Typical

    Cuba isn't communism in action, mr spartan, and I will not talk about communism in this thread, your posting history is an embarrassment, wouldn't want to make it worse on you.

    Those items reflect the cost of doing business in a civilized country.

    The Chinese unregulated business use lead paint for kid's toys, and use formaldehyde in flooring and drywall.

    I'll take the reasonable regulations any day of the week.

    Now that's odd, there must be better counties that practice your views over the US, that you would much more enjoy living.

    No country in existence practices socialism or communism, you show me ONE socialist country where the workers control the means of production, you show me ONE stateless, moneyless, classless society.

    Wrong again because I said all things equal. Meaning that given two products, one made in China, one made in the U.S., if the availability is the same, if the price is the same, if your knew that one was made in the U.S. and one in China, AND YOU STILL BOUGHT THE PRODUCT MADE IN CHINA, then that would be unpatriotic. Get it?

    No our markets are a lot bigger then their's and as such they have a lot more to lose than we would.

    And what I am saying is that it was a big mistake to have gone down that road and shipped our manufacturing capacity overseas in the first place. That whole whack notion was sold with the snake oil that you could create an economy based on services.

    Ah yes the "its not communism" or "it is not true communism" bit. Classic.

    Your ideology`s history is a embarrassment.

    You do understand that when consumers save more, that means they aren't consuming as much, and thus businesses don't expand, and new jobs aren't created (they are actually destroyed), don't you? And you do realize that when workers recieve less compensation, they spend less and save less don't you?

    What you just did was to outline a race to the bottom. In no time we would have third world poverty.
