French-style financial ruin coming to America

Or:    “Hollande Never Had a Job in the Private Sector Either

This excellent article about the smart, able and fleeced fleeing France should serve as a clarion call to Americans.  Well, those Americans who believe in capitalism rather than a bloated and corrupt government that transfers tax dollars into entitlements and distributes “free” goodies to buy votes to stay in power.  No other form of economy has produced more wealth for the middle class than capitalism.  Capitalism is the antithesis to Obama and the Entitlement Army who want to redistribute your money “from each according to his means, to each according to his need”.

The problem with that whole “from each according to his means, to each according to his need” thing is that nobody wants to be a slave to the neighbors just because the neighbors don’t feel the need to work because the “government” will give them “entitlements”.  Would you?

Especially when entitlements are so fraught with fraud and moral hazard.

This is a global problem, not just a French (or American) one. Socialism is displacing hard workers by rewarding the welfare class. If you want your best and your brightest and hardest working citizens to stay put and  make your country prosperous, then stop making them pay for the deadbeats. It’s really simple.

Charity and  programs for helping those in true need is quite different from the ridiculous entitlement and benefit programs of both Europe and America.

Anyway, the reality is that there is never enough money for every social program a Socialist/leftist/liberal feels is needed even if every single WORKING person in the country was taxed at 100%.  Never.  Socialists in government are termites. You see, the thing about a houseful of termites is that the condition of the house doesn’t matter to them. Whether the house is still standing or if it has collapsed, the termites will eat well no matter what.  This is very hard on the people still living and working in the house, though.

France may be worse off than others, but this same thing is happening around the world: Socialist politicians buy votes through generous programs their country can’t afford, and eventually the bill comes due.  We see that happening all over the world.  And the bill is soon to come due for all working Americans.

If only the American people studied the history around them instead of parroting the propaganda from Obama and his complicit MSM, the U.S. might be saved from the European economic model. If Obama successfully inflates the number dependent on government with amnesty, there will be no road back to prosperity. A viable safety net for those in need is imperative but Obama’s policies are meant to pad the income of the able by taking funds from the successful. That’s tyranny not freedom.

 

“The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” Vladimir Lenin

We should, for once, listen to a Russian.

    Unfortunately, Catherine, I disagree on one element: it is likely already too late. Amnesty will only bring the end with a different accent. There are already way too many people on the dole who will *not* let us use something as civilized as the ballot box to correct the trend.

    I will fight. But we have probably already lost part of the fight (over the “federal” government).

      I agree with you, GWB….None of this will end well….most assuredly it will be a hard pain that even the most devoted liberal won’t be able to avoid. Then I’ll write a delicious post titled, “We told you so”. Small comfort, that.
