In spite of our smashing victories last November there are still linger concerns that even this great social upheaval may be too late. The media’s constant drum beat is that America is fading, and China will inevitably be our master.
The most recent Rasmussen poll tells us just 35 percent of likely voters think America’s best days are yet to come, while an alarming 45 percent say we’ve seen our best days and have little to look forward to.
Using the ability to outproduce rivals as the best measure of likely mastery of the future shows America’s doom and gloom crowd is very wrong.
The facts say not only can we survive Obama’s assault on our freedoms and economy, but we are actually well positioned to because we are easily outproducing China, our closest rival, by a very wide margin.
The most United Nations recent report on international economic data sets America’s manufacturing output at $2.15 trillion, which is more than 45 percent more than the output of China. Moreover, America produces 20 percent of all the world’s consumer goods.
The Walmart Factor
The toys the sports equipment and shoes we see in Walmart and other down scale chains are not a threat to us. They help us live a bit better, but when it comes to making meaningful products, the kind that mere cheap manpower cannot duplicate, no one can touch America. We produce more goods than Germany, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and South Korea combined. The cheap junk that we buy from China now can be purchased from any one of a dozen countries around the world.
Despite all of the obstacles Obama puts in our way, the fighter planes, air conditioners, pharmaceuticals, and consumer electronics we make now, we’ll still be able to make when Obama is gone. America runs on our belief in the idea of freedom, which is something his socialism can never stamp out.
Experts in global intelligence are predicting the economic collapse of China by 2020. STRATFOR, a private firm paid to be right, sees China saturating its markets for cheap goods and grinding to a halt because of a shortage of workers skilled in the production of meaningful goods. STRATFOR vigorously disputes the notion that America is in an irreversible downward spiral, awaiting a world ruled by a China. To the contrary, it warns of the dangers of investing in China given her precarious future.
It won’t be easy, but we can survive Obama and get our country back on track. Our children need not live in an America that is less than the country we have today.
