    Default USA NOT #1 anymore...

    ITS OFFICIAL - USA FALLS TO CHINA AS #1 ECONOMY IN THE WORLD TODAY


    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/offici...150936444.html


    "Make no mistake: This is a geopolitical earthquake with a high reading on the Richter scale. Throughout history, political and military power have always depended on economic power. Britain was the workshop of the world before she ruled the waves. And it was Britain’s relative economic decline that preceded the collapse of her power. And it was a similar story with previous hegemonic powers such as France and Spain.

    This will not change anything tomorrow or next week, but it will change almost everything in the longer term. We have lived in a world dominated by the U.S. since at least 1945 and, in many ways, since the late 19th century. And we have lived for 200 years — since the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 — in a world dominated by two reasonably democratic, constitutional countries in Great Britain and the U.S.A. For all their flaws, the two countries have been in the vanguard worldwide in terms of civil liberties, democratic processes and constitutional rights."

    Wait until the dollar is challenged for the world currency.

    Agreed! Enjoy the recent reductions in the price of gas........ just as soon as OPEC declares the "Chinese yuan" as the new world standard for the price for oil, we will all be seeing gas surpassing $5 per gallon at the pump....

    They have almost 1/5 the Worlds population.

    The U.S. has about 1/20th.
    Do the math.

    Quality of life sucks ass there for about 99% of the population. PERIOD.
    The government's monetary role is to maintain the integrity of the monetary unit, not participate in fraud

    The republic has been lost for a long time. The only solution is a second great American Revolution.
