    Newbie from China, not a spy, not a politician, not a peeping Tom, but a teacher interested in US politics and trying to understand it, open to any view, and posting opinions not out of any propaganda motive. :eusa_angel:
    Currently very interested in the US e-government.

    China today, to me, is pretty much like USA yestoday in the late 19th century and early 20th century; an economic boom, full of political vallains, opportunists, bloody bosses, dirty marriage between business and politics... What's worse, the feudal nepotism has penertrated and pervaded all politics and big businesses. When a few are enjoying the fruits of enlightenment progress, many are struggling for a better life, a lot many are only surviving, and some are forgotten and non-existent. China sucks. But it also allows the growth of freedom and democracy and human rights, of course, with domestic and overseas pressure and push.
