That's why I can't stand Libertarians more than any other group. They're all nutjobs.

Not true in the way that I think you mean it.

The biggest holders of US debt are American individuals, institutions and Social Security. Now it's true that other countries hold a lot of our debt. But that's because we are the cleanest dirty shirt in the hamper.

Where else are they gonna go, Zimbabwe? Greece? Spain?

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Then, we all agree that USA should no longer give EU money, like USA did early this year, agree?

Like we will ever be able to compete with Chinese or Indian terms of employment.
Unskilled labor jobs (such as automotive industry) will vanish in Europe.

We heard the same thing about Japan a couple of decades ago.

There's an old saying: If you owe the bank fifty thousand dollars, you're in trouble. If you owe the bank 50 million dollars, the bank is in trouble. Deal with it.

it is also true that the us is not as relevant as in the 90's. which doesn't mean it's irrelevant, mind.

The part of the post that said there will always be a "roof over my head, food and education". From what I'm seeing on the news, Greece in particular, is having trouble providing these things to its citizens. Now if my information is incorrect, please enlighten me.

Governments get their money from people who pay taxes. If not enough people are paying taxes to support all the "free" stuff, that "free" stuff goes away. I guess the government could always print money. But then the money has no value and the country is still up the creek.

Re: How are the European protests/strikes going?

Haven't seen much word of this. Although I sometimes feel that the British media is the most censored in the world.
The EU is made up of Police states anyway, can't see the protesters keeping their heads intact for much longer.

Yuryevna,

Well, I suppose that some people in the thread are "bashing" Europe. However I started the thread for information since many of the news sources here made it seem like Europe (except for a few countries) is is meltdown mode.

But I still don't understand what that has to do with the Presidential election.
