Spain protests = ignorant socialists

From CNN:

Protests against Spain's economic crisis took a new turn Wednesday as social media networks fueled calls for demonstrators to take to the streets before local elections a few days away.

For the past few years, as Spain's rate of unemployment remained tenaciously high, most of the protests were organized by major trade unions.

If the people want jobs and they don't like the austerity measures, why are they complaining to government? Government doesn't create jobs and government has no money (except for the money it steals from others).

These socialists are ignorant of basic economics. They are complaining to the people who created this problem. Elections will change nothing.

Bastiat: "Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else."
