Socialism Wins!

Posted by Troy on 8th May 2012 in Current Events, Political

France and Greece have held their elections and have decided to kick out those fuddy duddies that are enforcing austerity in exchange for Socialist party candidates that are “pro-growth” (i.e. spending) strategies.  So…has the world completely lost its mind?  I don’t know what else to say, honestly.  They are on the brink of bankruptcy and fiscal failure.  France was recently downgraded, and Greece is having to beg for scraps from their larger EU cousins…and they are doubling down on the policies that have brought there there!  This is like someone throwing wood on a wild fire in an attempt to smother it!  The sad thing is that this does not give me much hope for our future.  We are on the path of Europe now.  Nearly half the country does not pay taxes.  No one seems willing to cut their own freebies.  Here’s the thing: if we are to survive the common crisis, we’re going to have to stand up and say, “I don’t need my benefits.”  As long as we are demanding that others give up their freebies without giving up ours, we are in trouble.

Long Live the Constitution!
