THE FATE OF FRANCE

This is what Pierre Lellouche, who represents Paris (4th district) in the National Assembly (France's Parliament) and is President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly says about France today:

France is at the end of the road. In 25 years of governing by Mitterand and Chirac, they have done nothing to prepare France for modernity. We have the largest public jobs sector, as a percentage of the working population, of any country in the world. Out of a population of 22 million adults capable of working, six million work for the government, three million are on welfare, and three million are unemployed. 55% of France's working population doesn't work, or really work.

France's only hope is for a new government willing to fight an unprecedented war against the welfare state and public sector unions.

As it is now, we are exporting our best and brightest, who are emigrating out of France by the hundreds of thousands to Silicon Valley, New York, London, and elsewhere. In their place, we are importing millions of unskilled and illiterate Moslems from Africa and as far away as Pakistan, most of whom go on welfare.

  • Break out the violins.

    The sad part is that the American Left has been following in France's footsteps. Will they now wake up or must we also be pushed to the edge of the cliff?

  • I don't think they will wake up. For many on the left, they worship "the god of equality".

    They don't believe in American exceptionalism. They want us to emulate "old Europe" as Donald Rumsfeld calls it (specifically France because they are so "cultured").

    And in their eyes, if we become a second rate nation because of it, well then it's all the better.
