    Just about every article I'm been reading about France uses that word - malaise - to describe the economic stagnation of that country.

    This election is critical to what direction that country will take. France will either revive and recover from Chirac and Mitterand's rule and to do so, Sarkozy is the best bet. Of of the other three leading candidates, only one, Royal the socialist could actually win, it'd take a small miracle for Bayou, and there's no chance for LePen.

    The other scenerio (a Royal or a Bayou win) will cause France to continue its freefall into Sharia law:

    Thats's confusing tolerance with acceptance yet AGAIN.

    You know what they say about French elections, that they're only decided in that last week before. I have seen that poll, too, that 42 percent of French voters are still undecided - probably some of them are really for LePen. There's another late poll that has Royal and Sarkozy neck and neck:

    So one of them needs to get a majority, or they'll be a round two. I don't see that happening, they'll be a run-off between those two next month. France better do something, German armies marched in the streets of Paris in 1870 then in 1940, time's due.

    France sucks. It's the opinion of nearly any true democracy. Only closed societies go for it.
