Yes, it would be better if they had a new govt.; but at the moment, their govt. is at least existant. A nation of 1.4 billion people, under revolt, would screw up the whole worlds economy, especially asia's, for many many years.

A slower transition to an open, western-style democracy should be the route-and it is; with the WTO, opening up to the world, the Beijing olympics, etc.

China is far from perfect, but it is better then it was 20 years ago, and in 20 more years it will be better again, if we continue down this path.

Exactly, my opinion, I agree wholeheartedly.

What's happening in China is very like the N.E.P in Russia under Lenin.

Yep. You already are a senator in GA, so unless two more Georgians come around, since there is one more senate seat, don't worry. Just keep your seat... Smiley

In Europe universal healthcare has almost 100% support. Why that? Think about it!
In Canada, universal healthcare isn't a question of support, it's a dogma.

BTW Which Senate seats are currently available by now ? Smiley I'd like to get one.  If available, I'd like one from Florida, there's many French Canadian around Miami and the weather must be warmer than the -30 to -40F we get here in Ottawa since a couple of weeks.

I think you can just claim to be a "senator" already... it's what I did...

Remember all of you, it takes two to argue, and it only takes one to stop an argument.

OK, Gandhi.

Mass117. Universal healthcare is dogma also in Europe, (And in Australia, NZ, Israel...) not only in Canada.
