Coming to America?
When you relegate generations of your citizens to a lifestyle of laziness and government dependence, they tend to get upset when you tell them the gravy train is over....
(Reuters) - A strike by Metro workers snarled traffic for the third day in Madrid on Wednesday and unions said the protest against austerity measures aimed at getting Spain's deficit under control could become indefinite.
Greece collapsed because of excessive government spending on entitlement programs that allowed most of it's citizens to be good-for-nothing sponges. France, Germany, England, Italy, Portugal, and Spain are all on the verge of the same thing because they've embraced the same absurd notion of the successful, socialist nanny state that doomed Greece. Disgruntled citizens in France rioted because the government threatened to raise the retirement age by 2 years.....2 LOUSY YEARS!!!
With our unprecedented spending on entitlements, our already generous welfare and unemployment benefits, and the determination by our current socialist overlords to continue to spend record amounts of money that do not exist in our economy, how can the US avoid the same rioting in the streets and rampant social unrest that hamstrings old Europe now? The simple answer is to get rid of Barack Obama and the democrats as fast as possible, then employ Reagan-like tax cuts and dramatically cut government spending. It's the only way to avoid collapse but then, I fear the collapse of the American economic system is exactly what Obama has in mind. Explain his actions any other way.
