EDITORIAL

It has become increasingly clear to this news site that America cannot continue to trade with China and retain the moral high ground of freedom that we espouse. China is the poster child for Orwellian government with its forced abortions/one child policy, religious suppression, citizens being payed to spy on other citizens, crony capitalism of the highest (or, perhaps, lowest) order, currency manipulation, not to mention frequent flirtations with America’s enemies. It is therefore the opinion of Iron Range Digest’s editorial board (me) that the U.S. must cease its current relations with China and adopt a tougher, more critical stance as we have with other governments who suppress freedom. This is an issue of both principle and economic well being for the future of our nation.
