    I certainly will not be voting for Mr. Obama, but what's he's saying might be true. I don't think that because he says that the infrastructure is better that he means "we should be like China." This seems like another petty gotcha thing.

    That's not what he was talking about. He was talking about how their infrastructure serves business very well.

    To far left wing socialist liberals like The Great Messiah all country's are better than America, Chavez/Castro are two of their favorite leaders.

    In all the little dictatorships that the American Liberal embraces do the Police ever say this to a citizen they are about to arrest "You Have The Right To Remain Silent"

    So that means he agrees with McLame about our corporate tax rate being far too high? Afterall, China's CTR is 25% to our 39%.

    He means we need to invest in our infrastructure, so yes it could be targeted cuts to provide incentive to upgrade our infrastructure.

    Well, let's see.....:rolleyes:

    China's existing infrastructure has all been accomplished without the creation of a $9.6 trillion deficit...not too bad a job.

    If we're honest here, we'll admit ours is falling apart a bit (roads & bridges)

    Well, China doesn't have a welfare state for starters, and they limit couples to one child by forced murder. That doesn't even take into account that they have ZERO regulatory practices with respect to anything outside of totalitarian rule, nor that they purposely devalued their currency to gain economic advantage.

    "China does't have a welfare state..." so they're not really "communist then, huh?:rolleyes: RW....you seem to be starting to answer some of my posts with statement of your own that do not really reply directly to my point.

    1. They don't deficit spend.

    2. They are still a communist nation although it has become a hybrid of sorts

    3. Their infrastructure probably is in better condition than ours since they are virtually an emerging nation and a lot of their infrastructure is new & continuing while ours is old & just being repaired (not much new)

    Think about how awesome our infrastructure was back in the 1950's when all our stuff was new. That's where they are now. Remember, China's industrial revolution is the present day. Ours was 100+ years ago

    Is this another "indirect" response to my post so you can avoid addressing all my points directly?

    No, probably not.;)

    One can't directly address the economic condition of an open society with (relative) economic freedom , which a communist dictatorship like China. What is their debt??? who knows they don't publish the data that is needed to do the analysis. Cuba and North Korea don't have a national debt that I am aware of....would want to live in their 'economies' though.;)
