China’s a fraud

The vogue statement by the intelligencia these days, is that America is not the world#s leader anymore.

Even conservatives have fallen for this clap-trap,  yet another lie from the Left, whose internal unhappiness bleeds into their political views.

I ask these people when I talk to them, ”Who, if not America, is the world’s leader?”

The easy answer for them, since they’ve read in Newsweek or seen on CNN so much about the country, is China.

Wrong.

I’m here to tell you, that China’s a fraud. It doesn’t create( the best indicator of the strength of a nation) it steals. They employ armies of cyberhackers who constantly attempt to breach our military’s databases, and lots of spies, who especially in the lax Clinton years, did manage to get lots of classified material from us, not the least of which was ballistic missile information. They copy and pilfer, but are incacable of running with America in creativity, freedom and rule of law.

China lags in almost every measurable area and not just behind the US, but Europe and Japan. And, they are still a corrupt society, something that holds back any nation in this era. The CIA World Fact Book lists countries by their 2008 GDP.  Even Japan is beating China. We have them beat by nearly a factor or four. And yet I keep hearing this garbage.

    Without the addition of Hong Kong, one of the worlds most thriving capitalist areas,
    China would have nothing.

    You are so correct, Americans have become the world’s leaders in being duped and propagandized.

    It is sad to see the self-hate and self-destructive path we are on.
    America has been the shining City of hope for the world for so long and now we are heading for destruction, not by foreign powers but from within.

    God Bless America,

    Agreed. Sad thing is that our government spending has hit 40% of our GDP. If it gets much worse we will collapse. I seem to remember 20% of our GDP around 2000. It has skyrocketed though in the last decade even if my 20% is off by a few points. Not a good road to be going down.

    China, ahead of us?

    Depends on one’s definition of ‘ahead’ I suppose.

    Hmmm…

    I think I’ll stay right here.

    In order to play devils advocate a bit – the GDP numbers are measured in dollars, and I would argue that the dollar is very artificially overvalued against the yuan, because China keeps buying US Treasuries (god only knows why). So maybe their GDP isn’t only a 4th, more like half of the US GDP. But I guess time will tell on that issue.

    That they are still a totalitarian regime that tries to steal technology from other countries is of course still a no-brainer. I wonder how much their government spending / GDP ratio is on …

    Well, my point is that government spending can only get to a certain point nearing the GDP when the crap totally hits the fan. A country cannot outspend its GDP in a global economy. We sure are trying awful hard though. I’m just wondering what that percentage is.
