"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The Germans are planning a 12 hour no-spending protest against the Euro. Again, the people in the streets who are affected by stupid Eurocrat mindlessness know better than the elites who want them to just follow without question.

In a recent poll 54 per cent of Germans said they wished they had the mark back in their pockets and purses. The federal statistics office said that some 10,000 items have risen in price from a few per cent to 1,000 per-cent since 1 January.

The EU can't even create a currency that everyone agrees with, yet they are sure that their foreign policy is superior to the US? 3/4 of the people in the world probably don't know a Euro from a South African Rand, yet no matter where you go if you pull out US dollars you are speaking a universal language.
