The reality is now kicking in as the European nations have found out that debt is not a good substitute for cash. Now with the financial failure they are now trying to make these same countries submit to a central government control and give up all their soverign rights and government heads.

I think Germany and all countries in Europe stand up and defend their soverignty and give up the Euro as a viable financial system. It was inevitable that the Euro would fall into despair as a debtor currency and its time for all these countries return to their own independent financial social system to stabilize these countries. With as many nations that are failing it is useless to try and create more debt to cover up the US failed attempt to a world economy under the control of the US.

If will destroy the US financial system but that's tough, it has been our choice and Europe should not follow in our footsteps of insolvency and bankruptcy.

Its time for the world to crash and get over this idea of one world government and economy of debt.

Germany lived within its means, was responsible and frugal while the rest of the European leaches spent themselves into massive debt with massive entitlements and now they think Germany should bail them out? Sounds familiar here at home, doesn’t it?

Isn't it ionic that a country responsible for two World Wars is now being asked to take on the debt of governments that have promised to much. Has anyone remembered how much Germany's war reparation debt was? Did any of these Nations come to Germany's aid? It is a hoot how history has a way of turning the tables on those who do not watch the hen house. Too many Europeans and Americans have depended on the Federal Government to take care of them. The people have forgotten how to take care of themselves. We all act like a bunch of two year olds throwing a tantrum because life is not fair. It is hard for humans to accept if the money ain't there it isn't going to fall from heaven. We now are learning that the Federal Governments are like the little ole man in Oz. Pulling levers and making people believe they can deliver anything.
