Why do the Republicans hate America for being America? During the Republican Debate on Saturday night, Michele Bachmann said that America should be more like China. In order to do this, Bachmann says we should get rid of our social safety net system. This system includes Social Security, food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, and other anti-poverty programs that help Americans across the country.
Bachmann stated that Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society has “not worked, and it’s put us into the modern welfare state…If you look at China, they don’t have food stamps. They save for their own retirement security, they don’t have AFDC (Aid to Families With Dependent Children), they don’t have the modern welfare state, and China’s growing…and so what I would do is look at the programs that LBJ gave us, with the Great Society, and they’d be gone.”

Michele Bachmann wants America to be more like China. Here’s the problem with that. China is a communist nation. It does not represent the values of the American people. We value freedom, the health of our people, and an economy that works for everyone. China does not. China is only growing because Republicans and corporations teamed up to outsource millions of American jobs to that country to take advantage of the cheap labor there. I’m going to assume that all the GOP candidates want America to be more like China, since they’ve all proven to be a group of wind-up dolls. Michele Bachmann and the Republican Party doesn’t stand for the American way. They stand for the Chinese way.
