The one thing we think we have to save us is that eventually people realize that socialist policies don't work, and turn to free market solutions.
Unfortunately, we don't see this in urban areas where, like in Cincinnati, decades of liberal leadership has decimated City cores across the country, and yet the voters return the scoundrels year after year.
In France, it appears the same is true. Unable to see the consequence of socialist policies in Greece, Spain, Italy and elsewhere, French voters are poised to reject Nicholas Sarkosy this weekend, and return to the hard-left policies that mired France in riots that almost consumed Paris years ago.
But as with the voters who have destroyed America's great cities, the French will have to live with the consequences of their decision.
