Imagine a world led by Russia or China

The nonsense written about the United States never ceases to amaze me at.

This is the greatest economy and the greatest democracy the world has seen. Nobody, including me, has ever said the US is perfect. However, it seems to be fashionable to knock Uncle Sam. 

For an alternative, imagine a world led by Russia, with Vladimir Putin in charge, or ruled by our communist neighbours, China. 

No country on Earth can boast companies like Apple, Google Inc, Microsoft, Facebook, Boeing, Hewlett Packard, McDonald’s, KFC, etc. The list is endless. 

And when countries are in trouble and need help, who do they turn to? “Friend” of the United States Rodrigo Duterte from the Philippines showed no shame recently. After calling President Trump and the US every name he could think of, he called on the US for assistance when he could not dislodge terrorists from a town in his country. This is but one example! This is a country that never receives gratitude – only attitude.
