French Politics Also Need Of A Lefty Populist Reform

I cant but the more than agree will all of you in that room regarding a need of more people turned rethoric towards voters.

Because French politics suffer the same.

We are now rulled by a Left , Progressive suppised government. I voted for Hollande because , although I would have preferred a more progressive candidates ( I voted for Martine Aubry in last Socialist primary) he was of course better than that Republican clone of Sarkozy ( who btw is going tho rename his party The Republicans)
But yet since they are in power, our executives, apart the gay marrriage law, had really close to zero progressive laws and reform now. More over, they kind of bow before Brussels EU neoliberalism by voting a new law deregulating the Working Code. And lets not speak about the new intelligznce law , written by the Assemblée nationale, witch has certain similarites with Patriot Act.

Even the last Socialist governement, witch at the time (1997-2002, Lionel Jospin Governement) was seen by many lefties too much right leaning, did more to us than the actual one ( Housing bill, Universal Healthcare).

SO what happend? The struggling class people now are turning towards Far Right NationalFront, because of this, but also because Marine Le Pen uses that populist rethoric she managed to recuperate , even using left ideas ( now she says she wants to raise our minimal wage).

From 2002 to now, France is being slowly but surely hijacked by Neocon and Fascism politics.

The French Main Lefty Party needs the Same reform as your party.

But I am afraid it wont happen until we previously had to suffer either another Sarkozy's term , or even witness fascist Marine Le Pen sit down in the Elysee Palace.

and understand they will possibly be next?

3. They certainly do...

 

But most think we cannot chqnge things. Even worse mqny are stating the only thing that could end crisis would be a war. While still mocking Greeks for having voted radical left.

4. It's a global economic coup. They are everywhere, and everywhere they go they cause destruction

and pain for ordinary people. Been watching them in Europe as well as here. Before that the Third World.

Don't give up hope, the tide is shifting. See Greece eg, I know everything will be done to make Greece's new government fail, which is why Bernie Sanders has stated that WE must support them.

The people need to go Global now. Corps and the MIC have been Global for a long time.

I thought Hollande would be so good after Sarkozy also.

What a disappointment he has turned out to be.

Thanks for keeping us informed on your country.
