    Well hell. Socialism works great till you run out of other peoples money.

    The French put that socialist in office so hey I guess they reap what they sow.

    Wonder how long it will take business and the wealthy to depart France for a better business and living climate??

    Anyone with wealth should leave this country too..After seeing the hostile attitude against them by this administration and all his comrades in arms..I'd say screw them

    When they leave the rest of the people can all be the POOR Julias/Julians so Daddy Obama can come take care of them

    Sounds like UTOPIA

    I find it funny that the top income tax rates in so-called "socialist" european countries are actually similiar or lower than in many US states.

    California: 39.6 + 10.3

    Libertarianism is not only about taxes

    Anyway, Switzerland has a 11.5% top federal income tax rate and a 3.5% unemployment rate

    It's an "ism", therefore to be looked at with suspicion, regardless. That being said, I thought we were talking about Russia, not Switzerland. Why didn't he go there, then?

    Exactly.

    The fascists love soaking the rich . The rich has the absolute right to prevent the government or any other criminal from stealing their property
