Lessons from the French Election

The presidential election in France is over and the Socialist Francois Hollande has defeated conservative incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy. There is a lesson to be gleaned from the French election.


Crowds filled the Place de la Bastille, as they did in the French Revolution. They were celebrating Hollande’s victory, waving French, European and labor union flags because they believe they have a clear path now to continue the irresponsible orgy of spending and exploding social programs while running up astronomical debt. Hollande wants even more government stimulus, and more government spending in general, despite concerns in the markets that France needs to urgently trim its huge debt.


Hollande intends to modify one of Sarkozy’s key reforms which will expand the entitlement mentality beyond its current bloated state. He also plans to increase spending in a range of sectors and wants to ease France off its dependence on nuclear energy. He favors legalizing gay marriage.


Sound familiar?


Here’s the lesson for US voters. France has reached the “tipping point” where the takers, the users, the lazy non-productive scammers that feast on the taxpayer’s teat outnumber the productive members of society. They are enjoying their sloth, their total dependence on the government at the cost of their freedom. They are ready for the plunge into the abyss of totalitarian socialism.



We have just one last chance in November. We must cut off the serpent’s head in November. Elect Conservatives not Republican wishy-washy “let’s all get along” moderates. We are in the 4th qtr, the 9th inning, the final period……it’s too late for compromise.



Dump the arrogant Obama. Maybe the cowardly, impotent, dependent French will hire him. The French would be enslaved now if not for American blood on their soil.



They will soon again be occupied by Islam.
