2nd largest economy in the world, China, has a tax revenue of $924 billion. China has a surplus. 1st largest economy in the world, USA, has tax revenue over $2 Trillion. USA has a $1.1 Trillion deficit. China has nearly 4 times as many people and less than half the tax revenue. We do not have a revenue problem at all. We have a very very bad spending problem.

China also doesn't allow immigrants from failed societies to pollute their culture.

I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.

On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That's the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic -- white women under 30 -- slightly favored Romney.
