In Charge of the World


I've had a few conversations with people who are tired of the U.S., probably more specifically, Bush being in charge of the world. They would rather us be a more peaceful quiet, Switzerland, or at least more like a socialized Western European country. And that might be fine if there were a worthier heir to our throne. But, who takes our place if we step down? China? Russia? India? None of the countries in the E.U. have large enough economies to really take our place. Simple question, would you feel comfortable with China being in the position that we are today?

Simple answer, no.

Longer answer, I'd wouldn't call the U.S. the only superpower anymore. We just make the most noise.
