Within 24 hours of Joe Biden declaring "China is our friend" and polls were showing that Biden would beat Trump by 10% in an election, the Chinese withdrew from the 150-page trade agreement that had been reached between the U.S. and China. China's efforts since then have been aimed at destroying our, and the world's, economy in an effort to "dump Trump." Short term pain for long term gain.

I agree with Gordon Chang, author of "The Coming Collapse of China," who feels that we should not do business with China because of their culture of lying, cheating, stealing and lawlessness. Western culture, modified by centuries of Ten Commandment guidance and the Rule of Law, cannot achieve the "level playing field" being sought.

The Chinese are legally and strategically interfering in our election process.
