Ha, ha, ha,, if you don't like socialism (I can understand that) or liberal economy, there is nowhere else to go!<quoted text>
Leon, I agree with you, I hate the socialists too and especially Mitterrand. He was arrogant but in reality he was a coward and a collabo, and when he eventually became President, he totally destroyed the French economy.
Hollande is also planning to bring in Communists in his party (Melanchon) like Mitterrand did. We should also send him a hoookker to his bedroom and then handcuff him like the criminal that he is.
THis a real outrage!!!!!
But... to say that Thatcher was great is also an outrage and totally untrue. Thatcher actually destoyed the UK's industry with her liberal economic model that she followed blindly!! As a result, today the UK is a desolate country with a lower GDP per capita than France or Germany, a huge debt burden and trade deficit. Thatcher destroyed the middle class. The UK is an economy centered on real estate and finance and services, a "paper economy".
YOu cant follow an ideology blindly like it is God's word. You have to be pragmatic, protect your industry whenever you can, spur growth and innovation with government subsidies if need be, keep taxes low, but tax and chase the super rich who contribute nothing to your economy. Well what I am describing here is the German model, a model that soon all of Europe will follow.
Still believing that money grows on trees, eh?
