Is it not passing strange that it was China, in Copenhagen, which fought for the American Way?

China cannot escape itself. Wish it could. It will burn brightly for about as long as Japan did, and burn out quicker.
The great Calvin Coolidge saw things clearly--there is no greater service that we can render the oppressed of the world than to maintain inviolate the freedom of our own citizens.
When he left office government was 3% of GDP.
