The chinese exported 38.2 billion dollars of goods to the US Jan-July 2013.
We exported 10+ billion in the same time frame.
We want to hurt the chinese, all we have to do is stop buying junk.
They may “own” 1.5ish trillion of our debt but if we cut them off on a consumer level, the .gov could make some heavy payments back quickly using our own tax revenue.
Add an import tariff on chinese goods, and suddenly we have control of our future again.
One we certainly need to do, just like mexico, is ban the ownership of property and businesses in the US by foreign nationals.
Screwing with the US is economic suicide for them.
This isn’t Africa.
