Lots of people dream of having unlimited power but that requires a hatred of democracy. Take this test to see if you are ignorant and biased enough to try holding the reins of an embarrassed nation.

b) The question is moot because “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
