Interesting. Denmark, Sweden, and Norway are the least corrupt. They're
also the most socialized. Is that coincidence or correlation?
Roland had missed the boat yet again. The Scandinavian countries he refers to
are just as corrupt and have just as unsustainable economies as the rest of
Europe. Their small size and their insignificance just make it easier to hide.
In fact, they would have failed long ago if their economies hadn't been
propped up by Germany for so long.Alas, even the German powerhouse
can no longer save Europe from its prevailing companion policies of atheism and
socialism. These policies have created a continent of lazy people who would
rather live off the State than be productive and provide for themselves. The
complete lack of hard workers is destroying the economy. America must reject its
own left wing leadership before we continue much further down the same path.
John, how can "the German powerhouse" exist if there is a "complete
lack of hard workers" in Europe?
Socialism is a corrupt economic system. The entire system is based on lies and
abuses of power! That’s why it always fails, always has, always will! It
punishes excellence, hard work and personal achievement and rewards laziness,
irresponsibility and failure!
Why don't we fix our own corruption first? We could do something about
Mike Lee preached that our country needed to live within its means... Yet, on an
individual level, even Mike couldn't live by what he preached.We see corruption and lies spewed from businesses and politicians everyday.
Lets cleanse our inner vessel first. Solve our own problems first. Before we
point the finger at Europe.
So what's the difference between corruption in European countries and
corruption in the US? Location, location,location. Really doesn't matter if
it is a socialist government or a capitalist government. When you give anybody
any sort of power, they tend to abuse it. Call it human nature.
We don'need to look outside our own borders to find corruption of a massive
scale. Yet few want to address it.
