Been to northern Europe lately, where many countries have a higher standard of living than the US? You want a model of an export-led manufacturing economy with low unemployment then you need not look further than Germany.

So you pick one country out of the EU as a shinning example of socialism? Heard of Spain or Greece? And some of our economic numbers/debt ratios are worse than theirs.

......such a sad note. Really, our country is going down the tubes because we give children participation certificates? Good grief.

Really sad is that you can't see how that leads to everyone wanting, no expecting, something for nothing. Its not as far a stretch as it sounds. Good grief.
