Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Y'know, I'm just as American as you, I just happen to be a dual nationality.

I also live in America, have for the past ten years. Lived here for most of the '80's as well. I've seen it in action, I saw Clinton and welfare reform, I saw a Democratic-led Senate give Dubya his Irak war, I saw a Democratic congress bend over and share in Reagan's "reforms."

And as said downthread, I'll believe the walk when I see it. I've heard enough talk.

Oh, and I don't have to hold my breath for progress in France. When it comes to social protections and rights, France is so far ahead of the US, it's as if the US has two generations to make up. So you can think what you like, but some realistic bearings of your ideological base and of what has actually been achieved (as opposed to talked about) would be in order.
