The main argument you're trying to suggest is that Republicans emotionally cling to their own property. I think that's inherent in sociology. Countries that have attempted to distort that inherent human interest have created less efficient humans (they'd rather not measure the decline in labor but China has dropped it's communal property strategies).
People get emotional when logic isn't available to support their opinion. It's all about the efficient use of labor. We can have six people who work for the Federal government watch one person who makes a billion. Imagine if those six people don't have Federal jobs and decide to innovate and hire others? Suddenly our economy starts to improve.
You don't get a man out of debt by lending more money to him and forcing him to accept it while following specific terms on how to make use of it.
Oh really? I thought that's exactly how borrowing worked regardless of Greece somehow being coerced into not meeting their huge payroll: 1. Person borrows money 2. The person giving the money sets terms and conditions on how the money is used and when it is paid back.
Greece is incapable of realizing that their form of socialism has not worked. They need free market reforms and a reduction in government. Even if they leave the Euro they cannot devalue their currency enough to fix their problems. Ask the Weimar Republic. I can't believe ninety year old failed policies are coming back into vogue. At least Germany remembers.
