"Americans can already see what their country’s future will be if they vote for Pelosi and her band. They only need to watch Europe. That is what America will be like 20 years from now if the Liberals succeed in turning the U.S. into a European-style welfare state. The latter is the cause of all Europe’s problems. It has led to secularization, because people who are catered for from the cradle to the grave no longer need God. It has led to the immigration debacle, because Europe has attracted welfare immigrants who only come for the benefits and not to contribute to the host country’s wealth creation. It has led to the loss of the citizens’ ability to care for themselves, because they expect everything from the state.
However, the current American elections are relevant for Europe, too. If they lead to the American withdrawal from Iraq, Europe will face a widespread intifada. The withdrawal will be perceived as a defeat of the West and the Muslim “youths” in Europe’s cities will become even more arrogant. They utterly despise the Europeans, whom they perceive (not entirely without reason) to be men dressed up as ballerinas, and they hate America because it fights back. In a world ruled by men who only understand the language of power it is better to be hated than despised. If America withdraws the Islamist fanatics will despise America for it. They will take this as a sign that the West has been defeated and that the world is theirs."
An excerpt from another brilliant Paul Beliën post on The Brussels Journal.
I am a European. I live in a part of the world where conservatives - the real ones, not the fluffy types like the UK's David Cameron, or the false ones like France's Jacques Chirac - are vilified. No matter how people vote here, it's always the Left that wins one way or another. It shows.
I live in a society where you are forced to swallow the belief that limitless immigration is the answer to the problems of a greying native population - even though a child can see that the immigrant part of the population does not produce scientists, engineers or technicians.
I live in a society where the Leftist Bible says that the State can manage the economy and create jobs, even if unemployment is actually twice, or sometimes thrice the official figure.
I live in a society where non-offspring producing means of living together, like gay marriage, are heralded as the summum of civilization, even if fertility is as low as 1.3 children per woman.
I live in a society where the Family is regarded as an unwanted and outdated institution, even as articles in newspapers say that one-parent families are increasingly poor, or that there are half too few child psychiatrists.
I live in a society where it is OK to mock God, but not Allah.
I live in a society which prides itself for its moral superiority over the United States, even as the mayor of the UK's capital can boast unpunished that Mao's rule, which killed 70 million Chinese, was good because it ended the ancient Chinese custom of foot binding.
I live in a society where common wisdom is that Bush is a genocidal dictator, even as every single move of the man in the street is increasingly coming under scrutiny and control of an almighty EU bureaucracy.
If you want to live in such a society too, then vote Democrat today.
