Austerity vs Stimulus in France

THE RECENT ELECTION IN FRANCE SAW HOLLANDE, A SOCIALIST BEAT SARKOZY IN A CLOSE ELECTION.
THIS WAS NOT A STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE PERSONALITIES OF THE TWO CANDIDATES BUT A CLEAR CUT FIGHT BETWEEN TWO OPPOSING IDEAS.  SARKOZY SUPPORTED AUSTERITY WHILE THE SOCIALIST CANDIDATE, HOLLANDE, SUPPORTED STIMULUS.  THE DIFFERENCE WAS STARK.  ONE COULD EASILY DRAW SIMILARITIES WITH THE CURRENT CAMPAIGN HERE IN THE STATES.  SOME WILL WRITE THIS ELECTION OFF BY JUST CRITICIZING THE STUPID FRENCH.  I WOULD CAUTION THOSE WHO FALL INTO THIS GROUP.  THE VOTE WAS VERY CLOSE.  TO SEE THE ACTUAL NUMBER JUST FOLLOW THE BELOW LINK.  THERE ARE MANY GOOD PEOPLE IN FRANCE WHO SAW THE DANGERS OF RUN-A-WAY SPENDING, BUT THEY JUST MISSED GETTING A MAJORITY IN THE ELECTION.  FRANCE JUST HAD FAR TOO MANY PEOPLE ON THE PUBLIC PAYROLL AND TOO MANY WITH LAVISH RETIREMENT PLANS THEY JUST DIDN'T WANT TO COMPROMISE ON.  IT WAS A DREAM SITUATION FOR A SOCIALIST CANDIDATE.  THE NEW LEADER, HOLLANDE HAS PROMISED TO LOWER THE RETIREMENT AGE AND REDUCE THE HOURS IN THE WORK WEEK.  CRAZY POLICIES IN HARD TIMES.  NEVER THE LESS MOST VOTERS LIKED WHAT THEY HEARD AND VOTED ACCORDINGLY.  THE STAGE IS SET AT THIS TIME FOR THE STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE NEW FRENCH SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT THAT FAVORS MORE SPENDING AND THE GERMAN GOVERNMENT THE FAVORS AUSTERITY MEASURES.  I SEE TURMOIL IN THE EUROPEAN UNION WITH NO CERTAIN OUTCOME.  ONE THING FOR SURE IF FRANCE SPENDS ITSELF INTO BANKRUPTCY THEY NEED NOT TURN TO US.  YES, THEY GAVE US A HELPING HAND IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, BUT WE PAID THEM BACK IN WWII AFTER THE NAZIS CAME MARCHING THROUGH THE ARC de TRIUMPH.  ALTHOUGH MANY FRENCHMEN ARE FINE PEOPLE WE OWE THEM NOTHING OTHER THAN OUR SUPPORT IN THEIR STRUGGLE AGAINST RADICAL SOCIALISM AS I HOPE THE INTELLIGENT FRENCH WOULD SUPPORT OUR FIGHT WITH OUR RADICAL SOCIALIST PRESIDENT.  THE FRENCH ELECTION WILL HAVE FAR REACHING CONSEQUENCES WITH AN INDETERMINABLE OUTCOME.  READ THE FULL STORY OF THE ELECTION RESULTS  HERE!

Same here in Britain where Government spending accounts for more than 60% of the economy (State subsidy, Jobs and social handouts to the unemployed)in Wales, N. Ireland, Scotlamd and northern England; no wonder they vote Socialist for more of the same.
That 60% equates to more State largesse than in some former Warsaw Pact regimes.
