    The French have historically been quite in tune with reality, politically and militarily. When it came time in the 30's to fund the remainder of the Maginot Line in front of the Ardennes, the French body politic argued that 'Les Bosch" could simply never make their way through such an entanglement of vegetation and the money would be better spent providing wine to the winos in exchange for their votes. When the Germans finally made their move in Poland and the French Army Reserves were called up, the Government noticed that the wine harvest would not occur due to the lack of manpower, so the Army reserves were put to work harvesting grapes instead of preparing for a German assault. When the German assault finally came, it was mostly over and done with in seven days, but all was not lost, the French still had their wine. These ladies in the photo at the link all look like they're prepared to host DSK or maybe even his successor, Mssr Hollande. Just gotta love them Socialists. 75 per cent income taxes and no balanced budget for five years.

    Will be interesting to sit back and see how long it takes France to implode.

    Taxing the rich and business will only get you so far.

    Of course the French citizens just love that nannyism so they voted the Socialist back into power.

    Good luck to em. They are gonna need it.

    and the United States of America not to far behind:

    A Look at the Communist Manifesto


    Here are the 10 measures the proletariat will use to bring about the full realization of the communist utopian dream, once they have the political power:

    Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.
    A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
    Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
    Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
    Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.
    Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
    Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
    Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
    Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.
    Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.

    Nazis aren't socialists, morons-were you born yesterday with this brand new "absolute drivel" installed?France was socialist 1936 and on, and wine had nothing to do with it- they're not drunk Americans...

    Take a pill and relax, cold war dinosaurs. Their effective tax on the wealthy will be much less, and the EU needs more growth policies. AS do we, Pub dupes. Thanks for the depression and obstructing the recovery. GTH.tyvm

    the french attempts at republics has been dismal without Charles DeGulle, any form of government can succeed if you can run it right. One of the shortest lived political groups was religious eutopian communes during the 1800's in the USA
