Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democratic candidate for the US Senate seat currently held by Republican Scott Brown unleashed a new campaign ad pledging to make America more like China if shes elected.
In America, the economy is chaotic, the ad read. The authority for the government to plan and manage the economy is limited. Practically anyone can do pretty much as he or she wants. There is no requirement for obtaining government approval before scarce resources are put at risk.
In China, the government synchronizes investments, the ad continued. No one can risk the nations precious resources without first securing government permission. Losses and bankruptcy have been outlawed.
Your choice this November is between Republican anarchy and Democratic order, the ad concluded. Please choose wisely. The future depends upon it.
While some have called the ad creepy and ominous, Warren sees it as a stark and honest portrayal of whats at stake in this years election. Look at the progress China has made. Their economy is growing three times faster than ours. Theyve got a government that isnt afraid to make tough decisions. We, on the other hand, are bogged down in loud, contentious, and continuous debates with our reactionary opponents.
As an example of Chinas superior decision making, Warren cited the one-child-per-family rule. Can you imagine our government taking such a bold stroke? Warren asked. Telling people how many kids they can have takes balls. Once you get over that hump theres nothing you cant do. Telling people to pay more taxes would be a snap. Banning privately owned cars, outlawing fossil fuels, moving everyone into high-density housingall the things we know about how people should live could be implemented with minimal hassle.

In China, there are literally millions of individuals who dream of moving to the US.
Do anyone think there is a similar percentage of US citizens dreaming of moving to China?
Libtards will wonder why this is considered to be semi-satire
No, but there's a pretty large percentage of Americans many of us WISH would move to China, i.e., 99% of democrats.
Ya know, it’s so close to the truth, I wonder why a PAC hasn’t flooded New York with actual TV ads stating exactly this. It’s not like lying is anything immoral in politics.
New York = Massachusetts
It's not like they very different anyway.
