China...just by virtue of the population will be the big dog on the block especially if they turn away from communism, even if just slightly more. That's what propelled them to where they are since we were kids. Communism suffocates a population and since they lifted off the throats of the Chinese population a little some years ago...well, a little freedom has gone a long way.
Loosen up more and boom. Free-er people allowed to make a little money serving that huge population....they are the wave of the future. The best we could hope for is they eventually go full blown freedom...that way...when this place goes down the drink due to whatever the hell you want to call Washington DC and the scum that run it...maybe the freedom lovers in this country will have a place to go.
We're finished if something serious doesn't change and that don't look too promising, all of a sudden.
