Anyways, we shouldn't even be arguing about this.
I have no problems with atheists. I actually prefer them to religious hypocrites and zealots. But we are one nation under God so we gotta do whatever it is that we need to do to stop godless countries from thriving. We need to work closer with Israel and her chosen people to defeat the Muslims once and for all. We need to bomb Iran and Syria. At the same time, we need to support the Muslim Uighurs in China and their rebellion.

Wait a minute, wouldn't that just strengthen the hands of the Islamic radicals like the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda and other terrorist groups who hate us already? Screw them all. Maybe we should just leave everyone alone and fix up our own country first.... Nah! Just kidding. That's would be un-American. Perpetual war is in the best interest of our country's elite. God bless them and God bless America.

You can't be serious??? Obama stand up to China is a joke. He hasn't done it in 4 years. What I'd like to know is what did he promise Russia that he doesn't want us to know about and is waiting for his second term. Just wait for the second term. The brainwashed watching MSNBC and listening to Obama and Biden have no clue whats coming. The latest study on MSNBC vs CNN and Fox showed that more negative false info is coming from MSNBC. My doctor told me the other day that he is leaving his practice if Obamacare isn't repealed. He said he won't be dictated to and would have to cut back too much. How many doctors will be leaving their practices? Romneycare was only about 70 pages and Obamacare is over 2000 pages. I understand Romneycare is working in Mass. Each state should have their own care that works best for their circumstances and not dictated by the Federal Government.

No One..BECAUSE he IS..NOT...IN CHARGE of the political issues that are happening UNDER who's Presidency at this very moment. Only the President that is reigning now..HAS the clout to issue an order, a command and a problem solving answer to the subject at hand...OBAMA has the pen in his hand..NOT Romney..
Why is the united states antagonizing a friend like China ?

Is this another Biden gaffe?

The U.S. trade deficit with China grew by 8,105 Million dollars under Obama.

-20,583.8 Million dollars when Obama took office in January, 2009
-26,022.6 Million dollars in January, 2012
-28,688.1 Million dollars in August, 2012

SOURCE:(Bureau of Labor Statistics) http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000

According to Manufacturing.org :

"China’s currency manipulation has contributed to the dramatic increase in the U.S. bilateral trade deficit with China, which now tops $295 billion a year. China has amassed foreign exchange reserves of more than $1 trillion, far surpassing any other nation’s reserves.

"China’s currency manipulation also attracts foreign investment into China and away from American manufacturing facilities. This flow of investment already has cost American workers their jobs. When countries adopt artificial exchange rates not based on market forces, they not only exacerbate the U.S. trade imbalance, but they create global trade imbalances.

"Additionally, currency manipulation results in a sizeable difference in labor costs. This difference creates the illusion of a comparative advantage for a given country. Ultimately, currency manipulation is a subsidy that can put American manufacturers at an unfair disadvantage in the global marketplace."

www.americanmanufacturing.org/category/issues...

Romney wants to declare China a currency manipulator, which would allow tariffs (taxes) on all China imports.

Romney stated on 7/25/2012:
"We face another continuing challenge in a rising China. China is attentive to the interests of its government – but it too often disregards the rights of its people. It is selective in the freedoms it allows; and, as with its one-child policy, it can be ruthless in crushing the freedoms it denies.

"In conducting trade with America, China permits flagrant patent and copyright violations … forestalls American businesses from competing in its market … and manipulates its currency to obtain unfair advantage.

"It is in our mutual interest for China to be a partner for a stable and secure world, and we welcome its participation in trade. But the cheating must finally be brought to a stop. President Obama hasn’t done it and won’t do it. I will."

You mean the MIC, Military Industrial Complex. They've already destroyed the U.S. economy.
