This is what happens when your leaders spent all their money importing muslims and now need more from their citizens.

I have no proof but if my assessment is right and they're anything like America across the pond, then this will be spreading. Its my belief that the Europeans countries that are curtailing into socialism have made a pact to hide the demise of their funds. In America anytime we create a specific socialized fund, they ALWAYS eventually steal that money by illegally transferring it into the general fund to boost other programs they have been faulting in, usually due to the same incompetance that lead to prior fund starting to fault. In a false economy predicated off projection and waste it's easy for them to underfund programs just enough to keep them active and keep people needing them. My thought is that between the onset of socialized healthcare as well as the migrant issues, the prior programs are set to fault and they will inevitably have to continually raise taxes to keep up. Just wait until the government turns the people on each other over their bad habits, peoples drinking, overeating, or any other burdensome things people do that can be seen as a detriment to their health will be on the table for creating laws against it. These people will feel besmirched then looking for other things of similar equivalence to force on their countrymen as pay back.

That's the last thing they need


Yeah, who needs to keep more of their own money?





Sure, they will be so happy when he lowers taxes for the rich like Trump did


"Cut taxes for the rich" BS. Always gets peddled around. I'm not rich and I've benefitted greatly from the GOP tax cuts.

I don't care if you believe it or not. Transportation of the future is that it's a service. The trend is in general towards services and less "owning", I live in a city there's public transport, taxis and rent a bike kind of services everywhere. Why would I own a car?


So its because you live in a city and don't need it.

It's because of Your Situation.

Your CURRENT circumstances. Which are not shared by all.

The reason you do not own a car is due to YOUR OWN CONVENIENCE. It has Jack to do with your care for the environment. Peeple is doing what is best for Peeple, don't try to spin it any other way.

Having read only part of this thread, I wonder how many French citizens are on the side of the protesters. I mean, we see ANTIFA raise hell which is nothing more than a small minority of malcontents. Could that be the case in France? Can we trust the media to give us the truth? You sure can't take RT's word for it since that is Puten's ministry of propaganda.

Many.

Two in three people back the "yellow vest" protests in France, and nearly 80 percent reject measures proposed by President Emmanuel Macron as "insufficient", according to an opinion poll published Wednesday.

Sixty-six percent of those questioned said they supported the protests sparked by higher fuel taxes, underway for the past 12 days, which have seen hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets wearing high-visibility yellow jackets.

Only 32 percent of respondents said they opposed the movement, which has caused economic disruption as demonstrators hold up road traffic, the Opinion Way survey found.

And if that is the case and it stays that high, then the French government has a serious problem.

The American Revolution was only ever fought by a minority, but a much larger percentage of the people were sympathetic to that minority, and it was that larger pool that was critical to success in many ways.

The American Revolution was also sparked by taxation by an uncaring, out-of-touch elite too. It seems an easier concept to grasp when you study that revolution because there is the obvious separation caused by the Atlantic Ocean and the slowness of travel, but the separation is really the same just the gaps are caused by different issues today.

Yes everybody else can. I'm convinced that if you value money so much you are burning down Paris for it you could spend that energy more productive.


How dare you spin this as greed on the part of the people?
?
🤢🤮

Well said, especially the part of them hiding the negative economics of their socialist ideas.

What they will never understand is that there will always be more people with their hands out then those willing to contribute back.

I'm amazed they are able to stay afloat as long as they have.

Give them money to play with free college, free health care. They can really do some damage

Louis the 16th and Marie would be proud of that statement.

Couldn't resist.



What is sad is most of the protesters will STILL vote for Progressive Globalist who only see them as "Worker Tax Cows".


Good point. Same for here in the U.S. The progressives get their orders from the main stream media propaganda machine. They say they want better wages for the poor and working class yet they want to allow in their country millions of low wage uneducated workers to bring down the pay rates. Morons.

I have zero sympathy for those protests. They're violent and stupid. They protest because the world is changing and they can't adapt. I have no car, because of the environment. Owning a car will be a thing of the past soon and all their attacks on the police, shops and monuments won't stop that.
If life is too expensive move out of Paris. Stop buying so much garbage and use public transport. But oh no that's Macron who is to blame. They elected him into office. It's not like he was advertising anything different than what he does...
Violent dumb #s level 30.


I had to read this twice just to digest the idiocy of this comment. These "taxes" hit all the citizens and especially the working poor. Moving out of Paris isn't an option unless you can find a job elsewhere and not many can. Do you think that produce, food, and other goods are just magically transported to stores? Raising the taxes on fuel is going to hit the working poor the hardest. The rich and the elitists like Macron don't give a damn because the taxes will never affect them. They will always have their cars, their jets, their luxuries, and they'll never have to worry about paying more for food. Everyone else does.

Frankly, I'm proud as hell of what the Yellow Vests are doing over there. I do agree that violence is abhorrent but I can completely understand their frustration. I'm also disgusted to the core that Americans are being such pussies and embracing increasing taxes as just a part of life. I live in North County San Diego and have to commute down to San Diego daily for work. I live there because there isn't a decent home under $1M near where I work and public transportation is completely impractical. It takes me an hour and 20 minutes each way in my car to get to work and back and if I take the train that commute jumps to well over 2 hours each way not to mention it would cost me $17/day. Buses would be a minimum of 3 hours and they don't even start to run before I have to get to work.

You say you have no car because of the environment? Great for you but impractical for almost everyone else. BTW, if cars are going to be a thing of the past then somebody needs to tell Elon Musk he's wasting his time and money. The world is changing but people will be driving cars well into the 22nd century. There simply aren't alternatives to this.

American people were given a very small Amount of tax relief, they are happy with those crumbs even though the money itself buys less and they are no better off, but regardless they didn't have a tax increase.

Has anyone been to France recently. I know they have always been rude to Americans. But was it always so dirty?

I'm mean filthy, disgusting is some parts?

I sympathize with them. I truly do.

But at the same time, they voted in Macron, when they could have had Le Pen.

If any of those protesters voted for him, they need to go home and shut up.

Because, what did they think he would do? Lower taxes? It was plainly obvious, his agenda.
