Still, if we’re heading for a prolonged era of scarce, expensive oil, Americans will face increasingly strong incentives to start living like Europeans — maybe not today, and maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of our lives.OBAMA:
"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.ET AL.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT EUROPE THEY LOVE SO MUCH!?
WHY DON'T THEY LOVE AMERICA AS MUCH AS THEY DO EUROPE!?
I THINK THE LEFT THINKS THAT EUROPEANS ARE SMARTER AND MORE SOPHISTICATED AND LEFTISTS WANT TO BE ACCEPTED BY THEM.
- IOW: THE LEFT'S IMAGE OF THEMSELVES AND THE USA IS OUTER-DIRECTED. IT IS OUTER-DIRECTED BECAUSE THEY ARE POSTMODERN RELATIVISTS.
- IOW: BECAUSE AMERICA'S FOUNDING PRINCIPLES ARE UNIVERSALIST AND VALORIZE INDIVIDUALISM, THEY ARE ANTITHETICAL TO SOCIALISM AND RELATIVISM AND NIHILISM. AND LEFTISM.
- EUROPE IS THOROUGHLY LEFTIST - ASK BAWER. (NO COINCIDENCE THAT SO IS ANTI-AMERICANISM AND ANTISEMITISM!)
- DEMOCRATS WANT TO FRENCHIFY THE USA. AND IF THEY WIN, THEY MIGHT SUCCEED IN AT LEAST ONE WAY: MAKING US THE FIFTH BIGGEST ECONOMY, INSTEAD OF THE BIGGEST!
