Does anyone relly think this country can be saved?

China has been working their way to the head of the world table for thirty years. While the US sat back and allowed it to happen. China and Japan now own more of our economy than we do. The US does not manufacture anything. We have the second highest corporate tax rate in the world. How is it even possible for it to be turned around now. We are on a fast track to becoming a third rate nation like europe while people worry about abortion and gay marriage. China has bought us out. Its to late to reverse it.

  • Yes, it could be turned around. I'm pretty sure it won't.

    The people could wake up. We could not spend the money that's budgeted but not spent. We could stop supporting half the world and fix our own country. It could happen. We could stop inventing an agency and a program for every perceived injustice.

    If enough of us get on the train it could happen.

    But it won't.

    We are a nation of children sitting blankly in front of the tv- more concerned about the implosion of some celebrity marriage than the implosion of our economy and way of life.

    To bad we do not have a Patriot for a president instead of a puppet.

  • I personally don't agree with you Europe being third rate nation or did you wanted to say third world country? It is hard to understand you.

  • OP, I am afraid it will take a revolution to make it happen. As long as the politicians don't care we don't have a chance.

    The mindless minions well be in a hell of a mess when this all goes down won't they?

    Carpy, I knew what you meant by "third rate."

  • Absolutely right, My husband went to China a couple of years ago to help them start up a plant that was built after his company sold them the rights to manufacture the product his company makes. (stuff to make lycra etc). He will be going back this year and in 2011 to do the same thing. Businesses will make money no matter what Obama does. There is more than one way to skin a cat. If it is cost efficient to move they will and then some will just do business with them. Either way in this case China comes out smelling like a rose.
