Shocking: French vote in a leftist for president.Submitted by McClarinJ on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 19:43
"In all the capitals ... there are people who, thanks to us, are hoping, are looking to us, and want to finish with austerity." said new president Francois Hollande, a champion of government stimulus programs who says the state should protect the downtrodden. His victory could deal a death blow to the drive for austerity that has been the hallmark of Europe in recent years.
I suppose other European nations will also vote for an end to austerity and thus hasten the end of the European Union. Hopefully we can do the exact opposite in the US before they do. Otherwise we will be sucked down the same sewer drain they are headed to.
