Sonny Perdue proclaimed Oct 1 China's National Day in Georgia.
I don't want to hear any more Rethugs calling Barack Obama a Socialist. The GOP governor of Georgia proclaimed October 1 "China's National Day in Georgia" essentially commemorating the overthrow of the US-allied Republic of China via a communist revolution.
Now, I'm all for peaceful and mutually prosperous relations with the Chinese people. The US-China relationship will be the cornerstone of international relations for many decades to come. Furthermore, I don't believe a country like China is ready for mass democracy on the American scale. The Communist Party is probably the only plausible, stable governmental model for China for the present. However, when the GOP is hurling epithets like "socialist" at healthcare reform, and then waving a pompom for the Communist Party of China with the other, I call bullshit and hypocrisy on the Republican Party.
Governor Sonny Perdue of the US state of Georgia has proclaimed October 1, 2009 as "China's National Day in Georgia."
"October 1, 2009 marks the 60th (founding) anniversary of the People's Republic of China. With our strong bond of friendship and growing economic partnership, the state of Georgia is pleased to celebrate with the People's Republic of China on the occasion of its National Day," Perdue said in a sealed proclamation dated on September 16.
