Isn’t it interesting that our country has been told off, in an economic sense, by the European Union countries?

The European socialism experiment is folding in upon itself like a wet cardboard box. Those leaders have finally recognized that they borrowed and spent themselves into this situation, and seem, finally, to be taking steps to end the experiment. This is the

He has been as effective in so many ways as would have been expected of a person with no discernable experience.
Maybe we need such lessons at various points in history. If so, let us hope that we learn from this experience.
