obviously not because the Islamo-Nazis have taken it over just as much as when Jackass Chirac was Prez, I assume by using the “boo” technique..The Islamo-Nazis say “Boo” and the French immediately drop to their knees in surrender.

Europe is too far down the road where an election will make a big difference. A lot of tough times ahead that can’t be avoided.

Yep, their spending is out of control. Their borders have been opened to those that compromise their values and traditional way of life. And they have socialist leaders whose only goal is to support the masses of unionized workers by raising taxes and transferring wealth.

Wait, doesn't that also describe the United States?

The return of socialism... People never learn.

People who do nothing but consume eventually have nothing left to consume but each other.

Europe is digging it's own grave. If the U.S. voter doesn't wake up, we're going to end up the same way.

“CNN saying that the French Elections are telling REPUBLICANS that cutting to what you are spending WILL NOT WORK.


They DON’T function in normal society. They only interpret the election in terms of how to win. It is tantamount to saying that, if you Republicans want to win in November, you should promise to spend spectacular amounts of money and give a sufficient percent of the electorate “gifts”. In that, they are correct. It has worked for decades to elect socialist-leaning candidates around the globe. Of course, you WILL face economic stress, even depression, at some point but as long as the electorate is not smart enough to understand economics, the electorate will not understand the cause-effect relationship between government spending and their personal starvation.
If the Repubs want to have a winning November, they need only plaster the landscape with the message that Repub=success for you, Dem=Greece. Hammer that home endlessly. Let the electorate watch France, Greece, the PIIGS, Argentina, the unemployment rate and keep saying “Repub=success for you, Dem=Greece”, till every last voter can recite it in his or her sleep.

Keep saying it—even shorten it to:
