Are you apprehensive or happy with the election of a Socialist president in France?
I think the French people must be mad to elect a socialist president. He wants to tax the rich at 75%. That is insane. All the wealthy people will take their money out of the country. France will be gone down the toilet in five years.
I don't much care. They've done it before. The dependent classes of French society voted out Sarkozy and his budget cutting ideas, voted in someone who will keep giving them other people's money until it runs out.
It wasn't a landslide election. Hollande didn't win by a big margin. A difference of one is enough, though, so he's now got the office, and the obligation to face the impossible problem of keeping all his campaign promises of public largesse. He too will be thrown out when it becomes clear he can't deliver, or when France starts to collapse due to the European economic crisis Hollande's election will accelerate and exacerbate, whichever comes first.
I don't think France electing a socialist president will be a good thing for France or the rest of Europe. The economic problems in Europe will require some sacrifices in order to improve the situation. Apparently the French people do not feel they should make those sacrifices. It makes me nervous to think where this all will lead.
