Yeah, China will one day become a superpower, but you all really need to look at China's issues. They are heavily overpopulated. Pollution is on a
scale that we've never seen in the US, the Gobi Desert is expanding into settled areas. There is almost no clean water anywhere to drink. The mass
majority of people in the rural areas are very uneducated, their monetary system is only doing well because they keep it off of the global markets and
many corporations are exploiting people as nothing more than slaves in order to keep labor cheap. The cannot build enough power plants to even keep up
with their growing energy demands. Illegal immigration, corruption, human trafficking, and over fishing are other huge issues facing China as well.
I just keep hearing about how China is this great country to be feared, and to be frank, I don't buy it one bit. Not now, at least. Maybe in another
couple of generations, but not yet. That is also saying that they are able to successfully overcome all of these issues that they are facing without
collapsing before they can do that.
America is America because of the people who live here and what we stand for. We may not lead the world for very long, but that's ok. It will give us
a chance to focus on our internal problems for awhile. Let someone else worry about the rest of the world for a change. Some things might change here
in the US, but we're not going anywhere, I can assure you of that.
