And that will force us all to labor for free, HOW?

Besides, I thought the unemployed were supposed to be willing to work for free anyway? Or is that just government employees?

Not so fast....
The American Empire will be the shortest-lived in history, because we gave it away thanks to our infinite stupidity.

Message from China:

"Thank you for sending all those nice American jobs to us, Bain!"

Unemployment is already at 15%. Where do you think they can find jobs to survive, once our bankrupt government is no longer able to extend welfare benefits? What do you think Americans will do once we can no longer afford Medicare and Social Security expenditures?

Look what happened to Russians when they went bankrupt in the 1990s? For example, many of their women had no option but to prostitute themselves abroad in order to survive - just one example of human trafficking / slavery.

So we should welcome our Chinese overlords? I'm confused, are you pro-no wage jobs or anti no-wage jobs?

PS: We have plenty of our own human trafficking.

No we should fight back against China.

We're still the most powerful country in the world. For example, we can tariff or ban Chinese exports and run China's economy into the ground. And/or unilaterally write off all of our debt to them. Why should we continue a commercial relationship which has had the Chinese siphoning off upto $500B of our wealth EVERY YEAR!!!!

What are they going to do against the most powerful military in the world in retaliation? Nothing.

We still have time to mantain America's hegemony but time's fast running out.

TruthSeeker,

You aren't looking at the positive side: we forgive most of the debts where we loaned other countries money. Some of them said they couldn't pay them and we said okay. Seems if we aren't the "world bank" we would be in a position to do the same to those we owed money to!

What positivie side. America has been bullying and ordering about other indebted nations for a century.
You think it is positive now that China tells us what to do or else? Hey China even told us to dress our Olympic teams in clothes made in their country.... and we did.

Pathetic.

A half-millenium ago, the British started colonizing India through the guise of "trade". Eventually the Sun never set on the British Empire.

Today, history is repeating itself, only it is China and the Orient which is playing the trade game in a bid to take over the world.

We need to learn from history!

Our cities are going bankrupt because tens of millions of manufacturing jobs have gone to China in the past decade alone. As just one example, Scranton, CA reduced the salaries of all city workers including police and firefighters to MINIMUM WAGE! China is destroying America!!!!

We need to stop trading with China NOW! Stop all Chinese Imports NOW! But hefty tariffs on Chinese goods. Or ban then outright altogether - NOW!

Seeker,

No I said that we could default on them!
