    How do you think American's will take it the day it is announced "China is the new Super Power?

    Do you believe the United States economy will yield to china's economy as the new Super power within 5-10 years?

    China may overtake USA in economic power but USA will remain no 1 war capabilities with supper weapons.

    I can't speak for other Americans. I don't care honestly. Some of the best countries in which to live do not have the world's largest economy. China is welcome to the headache of world hegemony. Now that China is getting cheap oil from the Middle East, maybe "Islamic extremists" will start attacking them and leave us alone. If we can get through the next 20 years without the Tea Partiers and Americans over the age of 60 begging the military and cops to run our government for us, we should be alright eventually. It won't be the same, but we'll be alright.

    I don't care. People hate Americans because of that we're number one nonsense.

    Americans already have yielded to China when they decided to sell away their children's future for cheap crap at Wal-Mart.

    Most Americans won't care, just the way they don't care about politics.  Everyone wants to complain and no one wants to be an activist.  It is sad

    We lost out to China a long time ago.  This wasn't an accident.  You can't have endless wars without an economic collapse being part of the plan.

    The general concensus of the previous posters suggest that most of us will not care...............for those who do, it will be painful.

    But hey, our nation endured a painful birth!  Sometimes, it is also a painful death.

    Whatever one's personal stake or opinion, it is a sad thing to recall the memory of a great thing.............

    Let all of God's children stand and Praise Him, while we still can.

    Apathetically...just like they take most every thing else. Far too many in this country don't give a damn about things of this nature because they don't see the correlation as to how it affects them.  They are too busy trying to figure out how they can acquire the next larger size flat screen televison before the next Super Bowl or where to put that next tatoo on their body. Don't get me wrong, they love living in the land of milk and honey but they don't want to concern themselve with the fact that it is going to hell on a fast train while they watch another episode of "JackAss" on television.  America has a society on which more money has been spent on education only to end up with nothing to show for the effort.  We have far to many people who have a pocket full of credit cards, the latest of all electronics, a new car, but no job and no plans for the future.  Sadly, they have an attitude that the fact that they have no job and no plan for the future is something the government should be taking care of in some manner. That mindset is spreading faster than syphillis in a whorehouse demonstrating that regardless of how much money you throw at education, ignorance has all the sustainability of the cockroach. WB

    Yes complacency of our citizens is the silent killer.  Americans spend more money on ice cream and cosmetics (separately) than we do on education. I do believe China will be the super power within ten years.  Some believe they already are but Americans don't register anything in their minds until they hear it through the media.  The day it is officially announced is the day many will feel the sorrow, for a minute, during a commercial break.
