    The Euro is in a free-fall, and governments will fall, the only question is whether or not they fall peacefully. The problem isn’t just Greece, the problem isn’t just Portugal, or even Spain…all three of which are basket cases.

    The real problem is Germany... how long do you think the Germans will be willing to accept massive bailouts of their EU brethren, working twice as hard, suffering under a stifling taxation burden… to support the failed and corrupt socialist experiments of Greece, Portugal and Spain?

    Actually, those two are the strongest.

    Ireland, Portugal, Italy and Spain are most frequently mentioned.
