    Germany has a super strong middle class. A form of socialism that works.

    You obviously are not aware of what the definition of "middle class" even is. To quote Dante Chinni:

    "Everyone wants to believe they are middle class...But this eagerness...has led the definition to be stretched like a bungee cord — used to defend/attack/describe everything...The Drum Major Institute...places the range for middle class at individuals making between $25,000 and $100,000 a year. Ah yes, there's a group of people bound to run into each other while house-hunting."

    And of course Lenin and his devotees (i.e., Obama, Reid, Pelosi) said: "The way to crush the [middle class] is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.

    I believe there is no middle class in Germany, at least under the historic definition, and if the hacks in DC continue to get their way, the U.S. won't avoid it for long.

    I just pray we get a chance to come to arms over this issue while I am still young enough to fight.
