Europe is close to being on the ropes. For years politicians on the left have declared Western Europe to be a socialist Shangri-La, while at the same time declaring America to be a hateful, bigoted, lumbering oaf with few redeeming qualities. The European Union was supposed to have supplanted or at least equaled the U.S. as the world economic powerhouse, with fluid or non-existent borders, generous social programs, and huge public employee rosters provided with generous salaries and benefits. The party is now over. Greece is essentially bankrupt, with Italy, Spain, and Ireland close behind, and now the continent is awash in Muslim immigrants looking for free social services and good paying jobs where there are none.
Interestingly, there are many left-leaning U.S. politicians who still see Western Europe as a role model for the U.S. and the poster child for the socialism they would like to see the U.S. adopt. It is becoming more and more apparent that socialism in Europe has been a dismal failure, and it cannot continue to receive the many immigrants pouring in across the borders. Europeans who criticized and denigrated the U.S. in years past now want the U.S. to save Europe and to send truckloads of dollars their way in order to save Europeans from themselves.
