The primary job of the Federal government is to provide for the national defense. The Communist Chinese government is on a massive arms build-up to make their arsenal into one that has an unprecedented ability to project power. They are building missiles to destroy aircraft carriers. The US Navy has more aircraft carriers than any other nation. The US Navy uses carriers to protect American interests and allies all over the world, now the Chinese will be able to do that too because they are building an aircraft carrier. If the Communist North Koreans threaten South Korea the US Navy can send an aircraft carrier to defend South Korea. Do we really want a Communist Chinese aircraft carrier to arrive too?
The Chinese are building landing craft and Generation Five fighter planes. The US Navy is cutting back on landing craft and we are slowing procurement and even cancelling aircraft contracts. What kind of threat does this pose to Taiwan? Will President Obama really go to war to protect Taiwan against an invasion from Communist China? Does the United States want to be in second place to Communist China? Will the interests of the Free World be served by having a stronger China and a weaker America?
The United States needs to wake up to the danger of the Chinese Communists. We need to pressure the Communist Chinese to allow their Christian citizens greater religious freedom. They need to cut back on their military spending and instead spend more on consumer goods to improve the standard of living of their people. They need to privatize more of their economy and move to free markets. China should import more American goods and agricultural products. We need to look for alternate sources for manufactured goods, starting at home and in South America, Africa and Europe. We need to trade with our friends and free nations, not Communist dictatorships; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
