    Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher wisely noted:
    "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money to spend."

    However, politicians set on winning their own re-election seldom let the future of their city, state or country and its citizens stand in the way of buying vote with other people's money.

    By the way, is France $17 trillion in debt?

    Another example of the failure of socialism! Government entitlements no one can pay for!

    Liberal policies at work and they continue to fail. Not enough taxes to support the spending.

    So, what's new?

    "France has among the highest birthrates in Europe, but can it continue to pay for it?"

    What an odd an bizarre question. Can a nation afford to continue to put families first?

    Oh, the endless creativity of the socialist dreamers are inspiring (not) to watch. Not to be outdone, American progressives are on the march to continue pushing for the failed policies of our brethren and sisters across the sea, most recently by their push for universal healthcare, gun control, and religious extremism (like public expressions of gratitude toward God). When will it ever end? Yup, those hateful Tea-party people who actually want people to be responsible must be exposed for their extremist positions.
