So what Herr Kohl is saying is that he was an economic Hitler.

And if he thinks going to the Euro will end all future European wars, then he's a full idiot.

First of all, lots of people got absolutely screwed when all the countries converted to the Euro.

Secondly, Germany will likely be the first country to QUIT the Euro because as the most productive nation in Europe, they spend the most on bailing out all the losers.

That in itself will likely start a war.

Let's not forget the U.S. (meaning we the citizens forced by our government) bails out Euro-zone nations constatnly through thieving organizations like the IMF, World Bank, U.N., and U.S.A.I.D.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

An interesting take.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.
