Socialism In Western Europe Is Collapsing

After World War II, with many countries in Europe devastated, the United States provided the Marshall Plan to help rebuild Europe, which was successful in preventing a Communist take over of many of these countries.  However, rather than adopting a free market, capitalist model, with its boom and bust cycles, which in general has always resulted in lower unemployment and a higher standard of living and more prosperity than any other economic system in the world,  Europeans turned toward an egalitarian cradle to grave Socialist model designed to redistribute wealth in the name of "social justice".   The end result in Europe has traditionally been higher unemployment and a lower standard of living than usually exists in the United States.

The balloon in Europe has burst as these countries predicated on government entitlements and deficit spending are now broke and some are even bankrupt.  Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain, often referred to as the PIIGS countries, are essentially bankrupt.    Their governments for years provided universal single payer health care, free or little cost university education, unlimited welfare and other benefits that are not sustainable.   The result has been big government and bureaucracy, less freedom, very high tax rates and government regulations that are job killers; sound familiar.   The chickens have come home to roost.  Europe is a mess and the EURO is now in jeopardy.  All of this, in addition to poor fiscal management in the United States is causing the financial markets to Just Say No as stock markets around the world are falling and the price of Gold, Silver and other commodities are going up as investors seek the security of these valuable materials.

Yet, Socialist President Obama and his pals in Congress are still attempting to "transform" our country into a Socialist nation, modeled after European countries, as part of their class warfare strategy to stay in office.  HELLO, that model has never succeeded in any country in the world.   Why on earth would the United States adopt Socialism when it has failed time and again causing poverty and misery.  Further, what President Obama does not understand is that Americans and or our ancestors left those countries to seek freedom and a better future.   We don't want to live in a Socialist country with high unemployment, less freedom and a lower standard of living.   

We see the end result of Obama's handiwork.   The economy is a mess.   Unemployment is high.  Millions of Americans have lost their homes to foreclosure.  Millions of Americans are on Food Stamps, Welfare and Medicaid.  And, thing are getting worse.   Obama has been the most anti-business President since Franklin Roosevelt.  Is it any wonder that American companies that are sitting on $2 trillion in cash refuse to invest in the United States as long as Obama is in office.  President Obama is incompetent.  Obama, though book smart, just does not have the experience to be President of the United States. 

Obama is in way over his head.   This President is not even qualified to run a corner grocery store let alone the Unites States of America.   To be sure, Obama would have never been hired as a senior manager of a good sized company because of his lack of experience; yet he sits in the oval office incapable of managing our nation.  We just can't take another four years of Obama, which is the reason we must make him a one term President in 2012 and send his Socialist pals in Congress into retirement, as well.  To do otherwise may cause another Depression.   We can't let that happen.

We have to take back our country to prevent the bankruptcy of our nation.   We can do it.   We must to it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.   Socialism in Western Europe is collapsing.   That last thing we should do is adopt that failed model as advocated by Obama and his left wing supporters.  Enough is enough.
