Questionable Alliances

Are we a Democracy?  
Is the United States a Democracy?

What does it mean to practice Democracy?

How could we possibly be a Democracy when we do business with nations who control principles dear to our Democracy?
Freedom of Speech, for example.

What does that say about us?

Do Democracies do business with oppressive regimes?

Don’t think Democracies do. 
But money and greed have no limits. 

And very likely, no Conscience.  



Come to think of it …

One of my favorite part of WordPress is the global connections you come across. Those, to me, are more valuable than the number of visitors, etc. 

I now realize, I have never had a visitor from China. 

Not surprised.
