It’s sadly true. For the first time since the administration of President Ulysses S. Grant in the 1870s, the United States has lost its throne as the largest economic power in the world–at least when measured by the Purchasing Power Parity metric. Political commentator Bill Whittle says it’s not a crying shame, it’s a crime! “The reason that China has surpassed the U.S. economically is pretty simple, really,” Whittle says. “The Socialist Chinese leadership has kept the essence of dictatorial socialism, while allowing the Chinese people to embrace a capitalist ethic of hard work and reward for effort.” Tune in as Whittle lowers the boom on American progressives in this edition of “Firewall” on Truth Revolt Originals.
