EuroNews: Protests Across Europe Against Austerity

European Socialists are mad as hell and aren't going to take it anymore and refuse to take budget cuts. And cuts in social insurance and expect to have to take care of themselves, just one of the differences between Europe and America. If Progressives in the United States try to put a rally together like this, they would be lucky to get a few hundred people there. A great rally for them would be like a thousand people in downtown Washington, because Americans tend not to like. Big Government in either the Democratic and Republican parties, at least economically and we don't. Tend to like high taxes either, you would be more likely to see a rally against higher taxes in America. With thousands of people all over the country attending, then to see rallies against budget cuts. Some of the differences between a Liberal Democracy like in America, then a Social Democracy which is common in Europe.
