Seriously. It appears quite certain that Obama will be elected
and that we in the U.S. will soon be living the way you guys in
Europe do, with Big Government and Social programs out the
wazoo. I know there are a lot of guys/gals from Europe that
visit this forum, so please give your input.
Here are my
totally sincere questions for you, because this will
significantly alter that way I have lived for more than 40
1) Assuming that you have a fairly good income,
how do you feel about so much of your earnings being handed out
to unproductive, lazy people who never show a hint of
appreciation for what they are given?
2) If you own your
business, what kind of actions do you have to take in order to
minimize the amount of your earnings that the government takes
from you? In other words, how do you shelter your earnings?
3) What are some recommendations for how to prepare for our
conversion to Socialism/Marxism by the Democrats once Obama is
in office? How do I set myself and my family up to reap benefits
from the government? How about people without kids - how do they
get treated fairly by the system?
4) We in America have
traditionally prided ourselves for our independence (something
the Brits can relate to, c1776) and rugged individualism. The
collectivism mindset of Europe will be a tough conversion for
about 49% of us (those who don't vote for Obama). How might we
prepare for it?
5) Obama plans to get us out of Iraq
quickly. He also has no great love for NATO, so we will likely
se a significant reduction of military presence in Europe. That
will save us a lot of money by not having bases and ports spread
around Europe, and by not funding missile defense systems. We'll
probably also soon end support for Israel, which will make a lot
of people happy and save us even more money. What is the EU's
plan for defending itself unilateraly?
6) I have
personally always loved Europe and the old world settings.
Hopefully, the significant changes we are about to undergo here
will not redound negatively on you guys. It truly would be a
shame to have the historic treasures of Europe in any way risked
by something like the equivalent of a modern day Crusade with
modern day techniques. If America was needed for a third time
(after WWI and WWII) to help fight on behalf of our distant
relatives, would you even want us there?
Thanks for any
and all responses.
