Link to WSJ public piece written by, presumably, the editorial staff of WSJ.

Read if you wish to understand where we are going wrong in our country, and how we can learn from the mistakes of Europe who has "been there, done that".

Read if you really believe you want us to become like Europe, and ask yourselves why you want to do this to the next several generations.

Read so you can be a more informed voter.

Old Europe has it right, now??? The Old Europe that told Donald Rumsfeld and the Bushies to take a hike on Iraq? Huh?? How can that be? Yet another Repub flip-flop?

OK, so when do we start calling those tasty little taters French fries again?

Ever heard of learning from the mistakes of others?

Ever heard of learning what a word means before using it? ( flip-flop comes to mind)

Yes, and yes. But only you can explain your flipflopping on Old Europe. Or maybe not. Maybe somebody just told you to. That's cool.
