The Shape of Things to Come: Greece
Greece has taught us so many lessons through the millennia. Now, they are teaching again - this time, it is what the end game of socialism looks like: "Nationwide Strike Paralyzes Greece."
The public and private sector unions took to the streets to protest government austerity measures. Hmm, now why would he government need "austerity measures?" Well, they are broke. "Why," I hear you ask, "are they broke?" Well, because the unions kept getting more and more and to pay for it they taxed the private sector to death and killed off all entrepreneurship and job creation.
"Jeez, Rumbler, that sounds familiar!"
You bet, just like the UAW wrecked the American automobile industry, and the SEIU is bankrupting the state of California, the difference is we had more money to start with than the Greeks. Sadly, with the path we are on, it is only a matter of time.
As always, we have been warned.
