Q: Is China REALLY a Communist country?

I know China's ruled by the Communist party, but sometimes I feel like it's more capitalist than the states. Why do they still say they're a communist party? I'm writing a paper on this so it'd be great to hear some responses. =)

Capitalist countries are run by by big business. They donate money for election funds, lobby for what they want. Basically big business do what they want and the government is behind them. Take the tobaco industry. If there were no cigarettes in the world and I thought it might be something I can sell, there is no way I would be allowed to. But because that industry has so much money they can carry on. Russia was Communist, it always had supply problems, but had a triving black market. Basically everyone wants more than what they have, some more than others,and the more you have the more you want, so I guess I'll ask what is your definition of a Capitalist? A simple life is what many westerns yurn for, no stress. I think life is always greener on the other side.
I understand what Communism is supposed to be, but I think no government is perfect. Government, ideals, principals are all nice ideas, but we have a saying '' that money makes the world go around".

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
