"The problem with Socialism is eventually you run out of other's people money"..Margret Thatcher.
That sentiment was echoed Friday in Ireland as they hit bottom and required a German bailout just as Greece has recently. I would expand upon that a bit.

With Socialism the goverment asks or demands that you give up almost everything.
privacy
firearms
excessive amounts of pay
freedom (that's a whopper"
I've read that the average urban Brit's image is seen 256 times perday.

Now the fallacy of Socialsm is imploding across Europe. Whether or not you ever get your fiscal house in order, your battle to regain your freedom is long and uphill, probably impossible, and you've no choice as your firearms are now outlawed and surrendered to goverment.

Yes, the US has financial debt. But we're implementing austerity programs to correct it and we're gutting Obama'a universal goverment health care. It has been firmly rejected by the American people. I have been saddened across the span of my adult life as I've watched Western Europe slip off into Socialism and just waited for this moment as I knew it would blow up in your face.

Regardless of what style of goverment Socialism morphs into, the freedoms you've surrendered are dust in the wind.

Well speaking from the UK we've had 34 years of Conservative Government since 1950 compared to 24 years of Labour Government. So I''m not sure how the blame for the UK's troubles can go to the Socialists.

From what I remember it was when the Prime Minister of the UK was saying "...there is no such thing as society" in 1987 that the UK's troubles really started, manufacturing industry was killed off, low cost housing stopped being built, and farmers in Wales were told to breed dogs, if sheep and cows weren't making money (that's where our Puppy Farming problems came from!).

Oh and in the UK we didn't 'surrender our right to firearms to the Government' we have laws that mean we only get the odd mad man (or women) going round on shooting sprees.

And after 13 years of Labour misrule it's again the Conservatives who have the job of repairing the country.
And we did have the right to bear firearms only it was taken away by knee-jerk politicians after Hungerford

Actually no, it wasn't. It was not easy to get permission to own a gun even before Hungerford.

Major restrictions on handguns were introduced after the 1987 Hungerford massacre by the government of that well-known socalist, Margaret Thatcher. And again by John Major's government before the 1997 general election. Yes, it was Tony Blair's govt that completed the ban, but even without that only .22 guns would have remained legal.

We don't want people routinely carrying handguns. That isn't because we're insane or under the jackboot of the despicable socialist economic policies of, er, George Osborne. It's because... we don't want it. Really. We don't. Some people would like a relaxation to allow sport pistol shooting, but you try standing for election advocating something like concealed carry permits and see how far you get.

In 2006, the total - total - number of gun deaths recorded in the UK was 210. That's homicide, suicide, accident; the lot. I'm afraid I don't want to increase that to US levels just so I can say I have my own gun to scare off any tyrannical rulers who happen to pass by. After all, they'll only have tanks, bombs, planes, ships, trained soldiers...

Yet another self-righteous Yank telling the world that 'we know what's best for you...'

And the 'best' you can offer us is Sarah Palin and the Tea Party? Oh per-lease!

Shut the f*** up and go polish your penis symbol - the one in your icon being so lovingly fondled.
