Bob and Bill:

>It is a democracy so there is supposed to be free trade also

Just a little nit picking - this country is not a democracy as such, 
but rather a republic based on the principles of democracy.  The 
differance is slight, but significent.  Also, there is nothing that 
says a democracy has to have free trade or that a dictatorship can't 
have free trade.  China certainly isn't a country based on democracy, 
but it sure is becoming more appreciative of free trade, especially 
when it is trading with us - one way free trade that is.  One of the 
great problems we face in this country is that people don't understand 
the differences between politics and economics because they have 
become so intertwined in our hell bent rush toward socialism.
