Welcome To America China?

BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | 'Thousands riot' in China protest:
Thousands of protests were held last year amid growing discontent over the widening gap between rich and poor and corruption among officials at local level and above.
At least the Chinese people know how to get results.
The Chinese government has introduced a series of measures to try to address the sources of discontent in rural communities.

They include pumping billions of dollars into the rural economy in the form of farm subsidies, as well as reining in the seizures of farmland for development and tackling government corruption.
Maybe we should take a lesson or two from our Eastern friends and start raising a ruckus. Note that these public demonstrations took place in a nation without a constitution or bill of rights, and were successful.
