Is it just me or does anyone else see a correlation between high government taxation + the number of people who work for the government or who are dependent on government funded programs in Greece and the rioting people whining about their “entitlements” being decreased or taken away?

I thought the Greeks were smarter than this. At least, they used to be.

I’m wondering, is there a  pattern that may be repeating itself?

Socialism never works. No matter how many times it’s tried, or who does the trying.

    Socialism wants you to be dependent on the government. So, is Greece getting its just desserts? I hope we can stop this spreading of socialism in our Republic. This madness must stop!
