Is PBS so integral to this nation's survival that it's worth borrowing money from China to pay for it? I say no.

That's fine, but you've taken quite a leap from what Romney said. "important" and "critical" are different than "integral to this nation's survival".

I hope that we strive to do more than "survive", but to thrive.

The point made by the OP is that funding PBS *is* important, and moreover is not only an exceedingly small fraction of the federal budget, but is also a fraction of the appropriations for military equipment the Pentagon doesn't even want -- appropriations Mr. Romney wants to *increase*.

If you want to talk about stuff not "integral to this nation's survival", you'd do better to start there.
