France’s day of reckoning has arrived: Its wealthy, best and brightest are saying goodbye to a nation they believe doesn’t want them to succeed or become affluent.

  1. BRAVO – Somebody send this to BHO, and if you want to make a difference then send this to your liberal friends – and this time go to the polls. America has never been the land of Kings and Princes and the elite we now have in power, our politicians and their special interests, have elevated themselves to the status of a special class, with our money and at our expense. They have become a lawless bunch and the Supreme Court is out to lunch. Unless we the people replace them WE ARE FINISHED! We have a constitution and the power to do so but we must exercise these rights, and YES THE SUPREME COURT TOO CAN BE REPLACED! We are not the criminals – they are!!!

  2. Excellent summary of the situation. Hollande is the 'welfare state incarnate', an economically illiterate bureaucrat who is pushing France off the ledge with his policies. He and his cabinet believe they can order nature around as Fred Sheehan once mentioned. Another decade is such policies, and France will be a third world country – its welfare state will collapse along the way, because it will become impossible to pay for it. 

  3. The solution is obvious. If the rich and the future of the labor force are all leaving because the country is becoming too socialist, then it's clear that France needs more socialism in order to forbid people from leaving, penalizing them by stealing all their wealth and distributing it among the starving bureaucrats. At least, that's what the socialists seem to believe.

  4. The Marxists behind all of this liberal progressive welfare state business want things to collapse. 

    They think it will then be possible to have a full fledged communist state. 

    (I'm not talking about France, I'm talking about the democraps in the USA) 

  5. Capitalism and Socialism has its ups and downs. Socialism, rich has no incentive to work or produce jobs (France). Jobs disappear and innovation is gone. Capitalism the poor has no incentive to work and create families. (Japan or U.S.). Crime rate rises and poverty rules the system. WE NEED TO FIND A MIDDLE GROUND. I have no problem with both rich or working class as long poverty ends, I could careless how many yachts are in their garages. Min wage should be livable wages and tax cuts for the CEO's.

  6. THE PROBLEM IS WORLD WIDE AND IT IS THE EVIL SATANIC NEW WORLD ORDER THAT IS CAUSING IT,THE E.U. IS A FASCIST COMMUNIST POLITBURO, THE 13 BLOODLINE FAMILYS WHO CONTROL EARTH IS STEERING ALL OF THIS THEY WANT A GOG MAGOG WW3 JUST LIKE THEY CAUSED WW1 WW2 THERE MAIN GOAL DEPOPULATION,AS DEPICTED BY THERE MONUMENT THE GEORGIA GUIDE STONE WRITTEN IN 8 LAUNGUAGES AND HAS 10 COMMANDMENTS  1ST COMMANDMENT MAINTAIN POPULATION UNDER 500, MILLION PEOPLE COULDNT BE MORE CLEARER THAN THAT SO WAKE UP FOLKS BEFORE ITS TO LATE TO DO ANYTHING.

  7. Bunch of biased poopy-cock.  Pat Robertson wants to spread this fertilizer, to try to frighten U.S citizens away from any thoughts of sensible, secure health.care, or humanistic, family friendly standards

  8. In France, a family raising children can live indefinitely on welfare, and Moslem immigrants work that fact hard. Medical care is free. Rents in public housing are tailored to family income, and there is public housing in country towns, where the cost of living is lower. Family members can work odd jobs for cash, and not jeopardise their eligibility for welfare. You can retire on a full pension at 60.

    It is nice to know the number of families that are leaving France. Teleconferencing and crack trains will make it easier and easier to be a French language executive or professional, but live in Brussels or London and pay lower taxes. The day will come when France will tax all private sector salaries paid by French firms, regardless of the residence of the recipient of those salaries. And then French firms will gradually abandon their physical plant in France, and build replacements elsewhere. Then one day, they will reincorporate in other jurisdictions.

    The problem is not so much the French who are leaving, but the many who are surely going into "internal exile"; paying high taxes, not working hard, not being creative, drumming their fingers on their desks, and thinking of their next holiday.

  9. The French left simply does not understand that a nation requires a large and thriving private sector willing to pay taxes. An inevitable consequence of this state of affairs is that some will be rich. The rich should pay taxes, but the tax system has to be carefully chosen so as not to shoot itself in the foot. What Hollande is doing is making taxable incomes disappear, which will impoverish the French public sector.
    The Tax Foundation just issued a report concluding that the French tax system is the least friendly in the OECD:

  10. The rich always jump ship or hide their wealth in offshore tax havens. Nothing new here. Letting in worthless people who will only draw from the state and contribute nothing has to be controlled as well as the home grown parasites producing large families and not supporting them. Of course it gets to the tipping point when more people are on the dole then what are working and contributing. Raising taxes on those who are employed can only last so long.

  11. Specific types of welfare are necessary, but some countries take it too far, making it easier for more people to get paid for doing nothing. I believe obese people should not be allowed on disability if it can be proven that their obesity is the main cause of their other problems.

  12. welfare is good for those who are in freebies. welfare is you work and support me while i relax without having to work at all coz free house,medical,education,pocket money etc. half the population is supporting other halfs, soon it will be like 10% population supporting the rest. result is city will decline coz there ain't money to maintain crumbling infrastructure. with that company will move away due to high costs. economic depression is bound to happen soon in france with national debt increasing. no more loans to creative, innovative people who create jobs coz money is spent to support no working people.

  13. Other countries must enjoy this. You get the best of the best, for free! I mean, look at cities like Dubai. Massive investments, a lot of creative people, supercars everywhere, almost no crime and it's a Muslim country. Can you believe it? All because of 0% tax. Anyone of potential who pays into the French system is an idiot.
