If the people of the EU do not rise up and beat down their governments for doing this — if they don’t do anything more than protest and riot – this WILL come to the U.S., and sooner than you may think:
The problems facing the EU banking system and government benefits is of their own making. Those who were responsible should not be forced to pay the price for the extravagance that the looters and thieves among them voted themselves. Many of them have already been forced to pay for that largess, and now they are being told they have to pay more because – by some demented twist of logic – they are responsible for the irresponsible spending of the looters and the politicians that court their vote with public dollars. I say let the system crash, put the political and banking leaders who allowed this in jail and let the people rebuild an economy that works according to the natural order of human interaction.
On a personal note, I find myself wondering what comrade Karl thinks about all this now that his precious government savior is proving itself to be what it has always been throughout human history – a tyrant, thief and oppressor of the people.
