Europe is disintegrating into its component parts because the greedy, awful Germans aren’t willing to work hard to support the rest of the place living the good life free. They have some wild idea that since they’ve worked to earn what they have, others should too…imagine that!
All the rest, France on down (and I do mean ‘down’) are feckless spenders looking for a free ride at someone else’s expense. All those early retirements, healthcare entitlements, holidays and endless subsidies have to be paid by somebody, even in Europe. And only the Germans actually work and save, so they’re elected. Unfortunately, though elected, they’re unwilling to serve. They’ve been overspending too and have to get a grip or end like their neighbors.
The European central bank, national banks and International Monetary Fund have been piling fake money on the financial cesspool to hide it; nobody is telling but our Fed is part of this too, obligating our future taxpayers in Europe’s behalf. Part of why Ron Paul wants the Fed audited like the rest of government. See, our politicians know Europe is going down and we’re going to follow; they want it postponed so long as possible rather than having to run for office in the face of the event.
Nobody is mentioning Cyprus, either but that little island is providing much more financial grief than its size suggests and is just as scary in Europe now as Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland or the last domino to face reality: France. The Finns are scary too; they seem to want security for any loans to the spendthrifts. What a concept! They’re almost as bad as those Germans!
When the last investor won’t roll over government bonds at zero interest anymore, it all comes down, spreads around the world and we have decades of poverty everywhere. The middle class hasn’t existed in most of history nor in many modern societies; it’s now reverting to the historical mean, going away. Government, as it does in China, will sit on the citizins to keep them in their places. And our rush toward better lives through technological progress will slow to a crawl, rapid progress scares governments, so they don’t allow it.
Our government already says it wants us to use less energy, live in less space under more crowded conditions, own less and it’s now working on our eating less too. Falling incomes and unemployment will go a long way to help with those goals, right?
Today, the U.S. Supremes proved we’re living in a post-Constitutional society by legalizing Obamacare; few citizens have realized what’s coming or even considered what they’ve already lost. They’ve eaten their dessert before facing the real meal. Now they’re going to have to follow their President’s advice and eat their peas…and then, pay a tab run up past every dime they have. No matter how we vote, that’s what we’ll be electing… Fun, huh?
