Hmm... well i honestly don't see what your point is... do you consider Denmark a thirdworldcountry ?. We've been having high taxes for decades in this country to provide us with proper unions handling the rights of EVERY worker in EVERY layer if he wished to join the union, "free" healthcare, "statepayed" infrastructure, a free schoolservice (even for university, you can ofcourse pay to go to a private institution if you want, but they aren't really that much better than public since they exchange teachers), and a securitynet for the not so fortunate so they also have money to get by.

Even though we've been paying high taxes the average family in Denmark is what would be considered middle to uppermiddleclass due to the international classpartiotionings funnily enough, that isn't really what i call third world.

The reason our economy has started worsening is that when Anders Fogh was elected as prime minister he lowered our taxes and started taking funding from the unions so they had to raise their entryfees for the regularworker, i guess you can see what that led to. And when your ressecion hit the rest of the world it started toppling down on us here (not so bad fortunately, but they still aren't sure if we have worse to come) because the states reserve had nearly gone empty due to the lower taxes, the lower taxes also meant that the public healthcaresystem wen't down i don't know how many grades because of less money to fund their projects, money paid by the working people of Denmark, which was instead given to private hospitals that should fund themselves. Our schoolsystem have worsened with teachers getting fired more often due to the schools not being able to pay the teachers, and if they can't do that, how should they be capable of affording new books and renovation ?.

We've tried the american model overhere for long enough now i think, it it also seems to be the general consencus of the people at the moment, maybe you should also try a new model ?

I know this may be hard to comprehend, but big corporations employ a lot of people.

Therefore taking money from them means they can employ less people.

Hence, it will cost jobs.

Democrats on the other hand think they know how to create jobs better than the private sector, therefore they claim that taking money from major corporations and spending it on "green jobs" or whatever other government program strikes their fancy will "create jobs".

Of course, this is utterly ridiculous since to create jobs they must first destroy jobs by taking from the productive private sector of the economy.

Yeah, tell this to the workers who are dying to bring us microwave popcorn and others who work for low wages with little benefits in hazardous jobs.
To the GOP people dying in these largely unregulated professions are simply unfortunate collateral damage.
The factory must go on, grinding our bones in the gears.
Blood dries, bones break and wear out.
Gears last forever. Where are you gonna put your money?
People... or cogs in wheels?
Another perspective...sad but typical and telling as well...
