absolutely. there's been a trend among americans to continuously rely on and give endlessly more power to the US government to solve our problems and look at how well that's worked out. it's a huge slippery slope. now some problems I agree do require more federal involvement but this is not one of them. for federal contracts like Sig said, or other state/municipal contracts, government suppression is fine. but for individual decisions as to whether to accept chinese investments for their personal businesses, it would be an affront to our American values and the 1st amendment to let the federal government control who we can and cannot accept investment from. we need to stand up to China but not by becoming more authoritarian.
