We are actually better off if we stand up to them. We can start producing more to sell to other countries via basic need for jobs. In which the US dollar will drop. Allowing US production to be furthered, while the US will then have to play more power hands to gain more resource contracts as the Communist Chinese literally own over 90% of the worlds resources at this time. Which is illegal in a Democracy and a free market via anti trust laws. We see major security items like plastics and heavy metals all being centralized to the Communist Party. With very uncompetitive SOE's and monopolization of resources. Which is exactly what Hitler and Stalin did before they went on their one world domination plans.
