Some economic illiterates cannot understand why foreigners allegedly bankroll our deficits. The reason is very simple. The United States is the world preeminent economic, political, and military power. We are the safest investment on this planet. No other nation is anywhere near as secure. France’s downward spiral cannot be reversed. It is utterly incapable of dealing with its unassimilated Islamic youths. If nothing else, the French socialist economy will never generate sufficient employment opportunities. Even France’s young and well educated citizens are pessimistic concerning their futures. What are they therefore likely to do? The odds are overwhelming that they will emigrate to greener pastures---like our own country. Isn’t it ironic that those who regularly ridicule the “reactionary” United States will likely soon want to become our neighbors? Will the last person leaving France please turn off the lights?
