Trying to open the eyes of Europe

I found a great website today and I will place a link to it in my favorite links section.

One particular article that I would like to point out is this "Open Letter to Europe."

This letter is pretty harsh on Europe but some eye popping facts are quite startling. Especially this paragraph:

"Your rate of marriage is at an all-time low, and the number of abortions in Europe is at an all-time high. Indeed, your birth rates are so far below replacement levels that in 30 years or so there will be 70 million fewer Europeans alive than are alive today. Europe is literally dying. And of the children you do manage to produce, all too few will be raised in stable, two-parent households. "

I continue to wish that our government leaders would reference the European model of economics, social security, and society more oftem when they make arguments to oppose the Democrat proposals. Europe has already tested so many of the ideas that the Democrats push and they DO NOT WORK.

Enjoy!

I really like your site because it reminds me how crass and stupid Americans can be. Europe is not a perfect political model, but there again nor is America’s. Please give us all a break and stop pointing the finger at the failures of others. Europeans know what their failings are and don’t need to be told by American Imperialists, bent on reducing the rest of the world to economic slavery, how to solve them. For a history teacher, you really are a sanctimonious individual.

As a teacher myself, I would love to indulge in political and historical debate with you. Although I am not sure that it would be worth my while, given that your perception of politics and history is as narrow as your judgement of the rest of the world.

I look forward to your response.

Kind regards

Joy

Joy, I believe you missed my point. Anyone who does not learn from a mistake, whether someone else's mistake or their own, would be stupid.

I am simply pointing out that the more we socialize things in our country the more problems we are going to have. Europe has proven this. If we don't learn from this than yes, we would be stupid.

We have tried to socialize different aspects of our society. It did not work.

I am not calling Europeans stupid. However, when anyone does not learn from mistakes, then yes, what shall we call it? Pig headdedness?
