Why would Greece need a bailout,when they're running their Country the way 0bama wants ours run?

Shouldn't they be one of the most prosperous Societies on Planet Earth,with half the Population either working for the Govt or collecting Pensions or Welfare from the Govt?

They have the bloated Govt,free Health Care,business killing tax rates,massive govt debt,etc.Everything 0bama wants us to have,or so it would seem,so why the need for the bailout?

    Greece is the canary in the coal mine. It's only a matter of time before all the western democracy become failed states. That includes the United States. The quote below explains why.

    A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a

    permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until

    the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from

    the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for

    the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury,

    with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose

    fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

    No. It doesn't matter who gets elected. There is no difference between Republican and Democrats. They are all in secret societies, and working together behind the scenes. Nothing ever changes except the propaganda. If voting could change anything, it would be outlawed. And anyone who opposed it would labeled an "extremist," and nobody would question it.

    Hey Flowmaster, yeah it was Bush who told the Greek leaders to employee more Govt workers on the payroll than the country has in the private sector. Good one Flowmaster, was it also Bush that told the greeks to have union pension payments that were so outrageous that it makes California look fiscally responsible. LMAO

    By the way Flowmaster Bush also caused Katrina, BP Oil, Haiti Disaster, Big Foot extinction, Atlantis to fall into the ocean, Mars to be struck by an asteroid, Red Sox to win the world series, Cavs to loss to Boston, Titanic disaster, Fall of the Roman Empire, The crusades, and Dinosaurs extinction,


    Baby Spittle/// Paul Krugman are you freakin kidding me he is about as credible a Nobel Prize winner as Obama winning one for peace LMAO/// Good one Buddy, Paul Krugman you crazy guy you lmao

    Actually, the IMF told Greece to dump the government healthcare to save money

    I know. THere it is. The EU, the broken socialist states.

    Perfect textbook example of the path America doesn't want to go down.

    Look at the progressive libs running as hard as possible at the Greece outcome. Libs are jealous and angry America isn't Greece.

    We need to be helping our own people, not bailing out Greece.

    This is America's Major problem.

    Because Greeks are a bunch of *******. They work 7 hours a day. They invented the concept of homosexuality as something to be celebrated. There's nothing Greeece ever did that America didn't do better.

    I agree - you would think OBAMA would say: "OH CRAP - Perhaps this EUROPEAN STYLE SOCIALISM - really DOESN'T WORK - just like our CONSERVATIVE MEMBERS SAID!

    Instead he says: No - it doesn't apply because:

    1) It wasn't DONE by ME ( the great and powerful OZ-BAMMA)

    2) They just didn't do it BIG ENOUGH - then needed LOTS AND LOTS more of the TAXPAYER'S MONEY.

    That's what Obama does... when he's proven WRONG... he misses it... and DOUBLE DOWNS.
