Letter: America must dig deep to get ahead of China

With our two-party system, democracy might be in trouble, and might be causing America’s downturn to China.

In my opinion, it all started with Mitch McConnell saying when Barack Obama was elected in 2008 that the main effort of the Republican Party was to make Obama a one-term president.

While the Republican Party didn’t manage to stop Obama from a second term, it did manage to take over both houses of Congress for six years plus two years under Donald Trump. There were no significant, if any, new laws to create incentives to make America greater.

Based on recent news about China’s “advanced technological revolution” to make that country No. 1 over America, we might be in danger of losing because of the “stupidity” of our two congressional parties failing to agree, let alone compromise.

With China’s dictator, who is all for this new “technical revolution,” they might succeed.

China has many new developments, such as exquisite transportation systems with super highways and subways. In addition, they are way ahead of us in the robotics age as well as new gigantic city developments.

Our leaders need to pass laws that upgrade USA’s infrastructure, and give corporations incentive to help in this endeavor.

Whatever country differentiates itself will come out ahead.

Remember the space race in the 1950s where Sputnik made Russia No. 1. America came together to overtake Russia to be No. 1.

America leaders need to lead and come together to do what America did after 1957.
