The China Syndrome…

The VP of China is visiting the United States this week and VP Biden couldn’t have graveled any more than he did at the White House ceremony for this Chinese visitor. It was enough to make any American puke. I don’t know about you but I am appalled at the position we are in with the Chinese government due to our insatiable desire to borrow 40 cents of every dollar the Federal Government spends. Our position with China is weak and will remain so until we balance our budget.

But the Chinese relationship is bigger than borrowing money. They cheat, lie, devalue their currency to prop up their trade position, hire child labor, steal our intellectual property, are using our money to build up their military, a military that will be a real threat to our children.

China has become a large manufacturing center in the world because our politicians refuse to lower the cost of doing business here in the US. We reward the Chinese government by allowing their unfair trade practices to undermine a truly free and competitive world market. We turn a blind eye to the human abuse and assault on freedom and liberty by China at the expense of our own citizens.

I believe in free and fair trade. I don’t believe we have free or fair trade anymore. Our government has inflicted thousands upon thousands of pages of regulations on our businesses which reduces the ability of people to start businesses. They subsidize companies like Solyndra and GM at the expense of companies that are trying to compete in the free market. And the Federal Government and politicians keep penalizing existing businesses with high tax rates that send them offshore in order to compete successfully in this unfair market.

I am sick of watching China eat our economic lunch while our politicians gravel at the feet of Chinese government officials. We are the best in the world at everything when the field of competition is level. Our politicians continue to undermine the American worker and business while allowing the corruption to continue in both China and our own federal government.

We need to level the field and take back our future by rejecting this administration in order to break the shackles these politicians have burdened us with by kowtowing to the Chinese. It is time for Americans to stand up and show the Chinese and our Federal Government what we can do when we put our minds to it! First action: throw the bums out in November…
