Sometimes it's better to take a few steps backward especially when one cannot move forward any more. That s what the French think when they say: "reculer pour mieux sauter". Next year, the Socialists will probably win the presidential election and in the USA Obama will be re-elected too.

"But both Hollande and Aubry share the main tenets of a Socialist Party manifesto that promises to scrap 50 billion euros of tax breaks that mostly went to the wealthy under Sarkozy, using half of this money to fund state jobs and promote growth, with the rest to cut the deficit."

They have to take money from real companies to create government jobs. PATHETIC.

"using half of this money to fund state jobs and promote [government] growth."

I can understand the French wanting to get rid of Sarkozy, that's easy, but if their plan is to centralize and grow government power, they should expect things to get even worse and the monopolies to become even more entrenched.

Dont worry it will be Marine Le Pen or Sarkozy.
French people are fed up by the socialist. Did you how Segolene Royale cried? You can see it on YouTube. She cried and cried because less than 5% of French people would vote for her.
The socialist wants to tax the middle class and fund immigrants who vote for him. The socialists wants arabic taught at schools and
giant mosques in the heart of our cities.

So dont worry, they will vote Sarkozy even though they hate his style, his short legs and his wife/escort. We have no choice!!!!!!!!!!

A horrid thing is happening in America and Europe. A plague. I think they would like to weaken us all until we are under a one world currency and administration. Strange when it seems the solution is to decentralize and localize. Countries need to build their strength up again on their own - in their own way. Just like in the US - we need to get BACK to where we are 50 separate States which can try very different things and find which is best. One state is Socialist, ok, I will go to a State that is Libertarian or a good mix of liberalism and conservatism. Makes sense!

I definitely understand "We have no choice" and voting for the lesser evil. What society isn't doing that these days?

The Leftists/Socialists have to weaken the existing system in order to take it over which is what you seem to be describing. They do it here when they finance lawsuits against American ranchers on our southern border for defending their land against large groups of men sneaking in from other countries. They also have whipped many of these foreign nationals into a frenzy where they go marching through our streets with the flag of their country demanding they are given a large chunk of the US, which they claim is theirs. American children are being taught shame and guilt, two big destroyers. You can see many of those indoctrinated children now at Wall Street. The Individual is to be destroyed and we are now to "share in the collective sacrifice".

Destruction.
