Well, I'll be watching the news to hear about your efforts.
But in my opinion, the young people in France should spend some time in other countries and find out just how good it is in this country! I purposely sent each of my kids to live in the US for a year (of course they had their heads filled with images of the american dream.) I stayed silent and said you go see, you judge for yourself.
"The" government doesn't want to, but government can.
Originally posted by hawkiye The government could not coordinate its way out of a paper bag. They are what's stifling the free market.
I'm a socialist, but I realize that's still a bad word. I agree, government should let the free market flounder on its own. However, government should go into the business of necessities. If government then fails at providing for its people, it fails under the rules that people demand. However, the former hunter gathers demand these rules because the minority who benefit from them have the money to fuel the propaganda machine.
Originally posted by hawkiyeWhat you left wing Marxists fail to realize Is you cannot have a government controlled free market they are a contradiction in terms. The monstrosity you describe would not exist in a free market because people would be free to vote with thier wallets and feet and take thier business else where and businesses that did not provide a good product or service would go out of business without government protection or bailouts etc. Market regulation in the name of consumer protection is nothing more then protectionism for the politically connected big business.

Hopefully your immigration problem is not as bad as it is of the US.
Your citizens need to overthrow your politicians, they're the ones who created the laws and agencies that take your liberties. You need to take time to undo the damage the politicians have done to your country. Return to principles, win your country back. That's what we need to do in the USA
