Unless you go through trial by fire, you just do not get it. Obama and Europe are headed toward pure disaster. Both are plain stupid and fail to recognize that government employees are NOT good for the economy, they COST the economy money for they are like hiring a maid at home who brings in no income but consumes. Every family has adopted a government employee they have to support through retirement like a kid that didn’t ever bother to go get a job and is 45 still living in their room. SMALL government is essential to the economic survival of a nation. The former communist nations have learned that lesson. In the West, we keep sticking our finger in the candle flame and have not yet made the connection between pain and the flame.
