    I think some of them are, but some will be alright. I think the welfare of the US military is certain to end. We can't keep spending over a trillion each year on "defense". Say what you will about social programs, but at least Europeans get something in return for their heavy taxes.

      Not all Europeans. Unfortunately in Portugal a self-employed person (like me) pays over 50% of their income with no protection in case of unemployment. And if you live outside the big cities (like me) you have little health care....
