    How's the US any different in this regard, denying a tourist visa for a democratically elected chief minister?

    Somehow, I doubt this was covered in the US media.

    Oh well. Time to taste the bitter taste of lying in bed with the commies. Olympics in China? What a ludicrous idea!

    Both kinds of visa denials (Chinese and US) are politically motivated. They are not comparable to visa denials that happen due to the oddities in immigration processing.

    China is more capitalist than Pat Buchanan and a number of other Americans. Pat Buchanan's version of cultural conservatism is not very different from the cultural revolution of Mao Tse Tung who wanted to go back to ground zero and Pol Pot which went to ground zero...same concept..one can only hope that Pat wants to achieve it without violence. Dana Rohrbacher, Duncan Hunter and Steve King all sound like commie pinkos some of the time. Just because we assert we are capitalist and freedom loving does not make us any less Marxist. Action speaks louder than the words!

    In some respect US has slouched more and more towards communism since 9/11...not very different from Chinese commies.

    One more thing. GOP is loosing now for thus main reason: it moved away from its emphasis on freedom and began to slouch towards communsim through wiretapping, building walls and other freedom restrictions. The other is of course the economy which is a direct result of slouching towards communism beginning with the Dubai Ports fiasco which started the current dollar collapse...and the chief commie culprits in the GOP: Duncan Hunter and Dana Rohrbacher, California Reps representing wealthy white districts!

    George,

    Perhaps communism is too strong a word for GOP behavior in those instances you mention.

    Mainly because religious people make up a bedrock of GOP supporters while religion is anathema to the communists. I haven't observed any changes in the GOP attitude towards its religious base.
