Today it was reported that Europeans are paying $8 per gallon for gas. Obviously they buy in liters but the article called it per gallon. The article cited that Europeans drivers pay the highest gas taxes in the world, with the tax on diesel in Britain accounting for 65% of the retail price. In Britain, the politicians are actually considering raising the taxes on fuel.
This article, to me, sums up how well socialism works. Lots of fools like to say that our capatalist system does not work as good as Europe's socialist ways. Once again, here is some proof.
Next time one of your supposed intellectual type friends, you know the ones who can't shut up about how we should be more like Europe, spout off, remind them of this. Of course they probably like the $8 business. It puts us all that much closer to having to ride a bike, sing Kumbya and have cradle to grave entitlement programs. Oh and my personal unfavorite, women do not get to shave their legs or armpits. Yikes.
