“The day after Francois Hollande rode to power in France on a slogan of “change now,” the conversation in Europe was already different Monday: Austerity had become a dirty word.
What replaces it, though, was anything but clear.
The newly powerful in France and Greece want to roll back the spending cuts and tax increases that have defined Europe’s response to its 3-year-old debt crisis. But campaign rhetoric is likely to prove more extreme than any real-world reversal of the budget tightening.” (more)
Seriously, look at this lining up. The U.S. is not even in austerity mode and the Euro’s, the accommodated ones for decades, are changing course. Spoiled by their Nanny Tit! This does not bode well for the U.S.
I am troubled by the clueless nature of most folks I meet. Immigration is a non-issue. Big Gov is a non-issue. I recently sat in a bar in Palm Springs conversing with a young lady. She was very frustrated by the PS adults. She told me “I need more from my government”. I said something similar to “WTF!”….she was shocked.
We should all me to be shocked by the ignorance of so many. This is not about just moral values of the religious right or the moral values of the progressive left (social justice). We should all pucker up to the damn thugs and goons of the Government in waiting…the Far Left thugs that will drag your sorry ass away to re-education camps and worse. Far fetched?
Watch the pathetic Euro’s ONCE AGAIN SLIDE INTO the Weimar Republic. Be forewarned.
You and I are told increasingly that we have to choose between a left or right, but I would like to suggest that there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down–up to a man’s age-old dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order–or down to the ant heap totalitarianism, and regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. -Ronald Regan
