I take it that you're not familiar with the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction then?
We do not need China to counter the Russians because we could easily defeat them in war.

So right now you go to Saudi Arabia and buy your oil? No you get it from wherever the Oil companies buy it. I am saying lets get more oil from our own country and quit giving our money to the Middle East. Most oil we buy now comes from Canada.
Now you must be joking! What, we'll have a nice gentleman's agreement not to use WMD will we? Of course! Why wouldn't the likely losers agree to that?

You are absolutely wrong. Flat out in denial. By not making anything, the whole of the world will just sit back and pay us for our thoughts.
You want something or some labor not from here? Pay more for it!
Tax it, Tarrif it, Block it! Oil is a joke anyways, if we tell them to stick it, they are broke. Run your car on Water. If we had our manufactoring base still, when oil went sky high on us, we would have dumped oil.
The debt was created on a fantisy that we did not have to make anything. That thought was filed into our brains by the Elite that wanted profits and to take them offshore and not share it.
By allowing Clinton to do NAFTA, and then continueing with Bush to deregulate everything and make sure no tarrifs were on China and India, is what the American Citizens did wrong. That was the time to stand up and say NO!
All we could say is, "Look at all the Cheap Crap we can buy!"
There is only one way out of not being Third World, and or One World.
That is to work and make things again. Check out History, if you don't make, you don't eat.........

You know I usualy agree with you,but I am going to have to disagree this time. IT is never good to have more money going out than coming in unless we were investing.

Thing is...good and services produced in China and India are no longer that much cheaper, people. And soon they won't be cheaper at all...and I'm talking dollarwise, not qualitywise here.
