China is widely praised for its “economic miracle,” but what is not widely enough reported is that even the wealthiest Chinese citizens want to leave. They want to leave because of the communist control freaks who rule the country, restricting liberty and corrupting justice. Among the 20,000 Chinese with at least $15 million in assets, 27% have already emigrated and 47% are considering it (“Top of Chinese Wealthy’s Wish List: To Leave China,” AP, Sept. 7, 2011). Chinese millionaire “Su,” who builds skyscrapers, told the Associated Press that he is looking forward to the day he can leave because “he wants to protect his assets, he has to watch what he says in China, and he wants a second child.” He spoke on condition of anonymity as he fears government reprisal. The most popular destination for Chinese emigrants is that terrible place called the United States. And we are talking about rich Chinese people. These particular people aren’t coming to America for wealth; they are coming for freedom: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of assembly, freedom to own property, freedom of movement, freedom to have children, freedom from being spied on and arbitrarily arrested and imprisoned by the government. America has long been a bastion of liberty in a world of oppression. It is terribly sad that we are losing those freedoms because of apostasy, lies, ignorance, and gross unconcern.
