Chen, who is studying law at New York University, is fiercely critical of China's legal system, but also surprisingly optimistic about the potential for change.

The rule of law in China is crucial to addressing many of China's most pressing problems and keeping peace in a sprawling, fractious country. The lack of an independent judiciary allows officials often to operate with impunity: detaining citizens without charge, approving environmentally dangerous projects and stealing public money with both hands.

Perhaps the judiciary's greatest problem is that it is ultimately controlled by the Communist Party. Chen says the party refuses to give up that power because it is so politically useful.

"It's very much against their interests," says Chen, speaking in a conference room at the New York University School of Law in Manhattan. "The implementation of a law would rule out the possibility of foul play on their part."

China gets unpunished mass-murderers and thieves, no legal rights, no property, no vote.

The US gets an actual government under the rule of law, a choice, and a legitimate leadership.

Millions wish to immigrate TO the USA every year!

Millions wish to emigrate FROM the Communist Party of China slave-state every year!

That pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

No wonder they are so interested. They want to see if the globalists can pull a cultural revolution/dumbing down of America with Obama. Just like the one that brought them the 1 child policy.

Are you kidding? There are 4 million people from overseas living in mainland China, including 1 million illegals.

There are 6 million Americans living overseas.

If Obama wins, then it's 4 years of slow decline.

If Romney wins, then it's 4 years of fast decline, after Uncle Sam invades Iran and destroy the world economy again, along with its own.

Anyways, the next Democratic president in 2017 does the handover to China in 2018.

Competent administrators?

If you call massive corruption, unfair education system, blocking and censoring news, closed-door judiciary, lying in history books and the people not being able to choose their own leaders "competent"... then you are truly a sheep.

Baaaaa....
