Feb 28, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Silicon Alley Insider

Francois Hollande, the French presidential candidate for the Socialist Party, appears to have set out his tax plans in a prime time interview on French TV, the BBC reports : "Above 1m euros [847,000; $1.3m], the tax rate should be 75% because it's not possible to have that level of income."

EU will not collapse. We will survive. If it makes collapse then we will make own national currencies, debts will be reduced till 50 % thanks to proper exchange ( it is top secret all big European euro countries have mints, which are ready to work and print national money and this time very quickly if something would go very badly). And we will be not as brothers ans sisters from one big Europe but like usual fellows from European countries.
But it is not known what will be with USA, if you donīt change. Future of USA is really uncertain. You have the only choice dr Ron Paul, who will save your country and bring positive changes. He will restore peace globally, he will restore prosperity in USA. He is the best.
Thank you for your thoughtful response!

It would be a miracle now for Ron Paul to get the republican nomination at their convention this summer, Romney has it sewn up. If he has to run it would have to be as an independent, and he will doubtless pick off more of Romney's voters than Obama's voters. As the US doesn't have a run off vote like France, it will all be decided in November and the candidate with the most votes wins. I just don't see Ron Paul winning.

If Obama wins re-election in November, America will never survive the massive debt and the blitz of purposefully divisive social engineering. America will have to endure a Civil War if our children are to inherit anything but debt and hopelessness at the hand of Obama's minions.

Europe is in much better shape than America.

in the 1950's after the war - the rich were taxed 91% for their top marginal rate and guess what happened - One of the biggest booms for the middleclass in our history.

If the rich are actually creating jobs, have a company, but don't want to pay the top rates, that Obama suggests something like 30 to 36% on the top marginal rate, then the rich job creators can simply keep money in their companies instead of drawing out large salaries. If instead of sending the money to an offshore account, they keep the money in their company, as many did in the 50's then more jobs may be created.
