I write this mainly for the benefit of so many of my Liberal friends.  I know you have good hearts, but have been badly deceived by your peers and leaders when it comes to the threat of Jihad, and the character of those few brave individuals, who have had the courage to risk everything, to stand up for liberty and human rights.

Sweden’s Reputation As A Welfare State Is In Trouble

http://news.investors.com/article/611249/201205111844/swedish-model-brings-economic-growth.htm

&

When Sweden’s government was the biggest spender, its economy totally stalled: zero growth for five years.  What grew was its debt.  And even with extremely high taxes, it ran huge deficits.  Then it changed its high-spending ways.  It cut spending, drastically, and over an extended period of time — going on 18 years now.  Keynesians tell us that cutting government spending will slow economic growth.  The exact opposite happened with Sweden.  Once it started cutting spending, its economy started growing: 4% in 1994 and 3.9% in 1995. In the 18 years since it started cutting, Sweden’s economy grew at twice its previous rate, even faster than the U.S.’s…  Sweden cut spending and taxes.  And its tax system is as flat as a tax system can be.
