Good points by Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, both Republican hopefuls for the 2016 White House nomination, on the repression of the current Communist Chinese regime:
Sens. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R., Texas) urged President Obama in recent statements to confront the Chinese president on human rights abuses and other security concerns during a state visit on Friday.
Obama is expected to discuss a number of U.S. concerns about China’s actions with Xi Jinping, including Beijing’s violations of citizens’ rights, cyber theft of intellectual property from U.S. companies, and militarization of the South China Sea. Chinese dissidents say Xi, who has initiated a sweeping crackdown against human rights lawyers, activists, and religious and ethnic minorities, is the most repressive Communist Party leader since Mao Zedong.
