DISGRUNTLED FRENCH STEEL WORKERS TURN TO POPULIST LE PEN

DISGRUNTLED FRENCH STEEL WORKERS TURN TO POPULIST LE PEN
BY JOHN LEICESTER

National Front is now an inescapable part of the landscape in France's industrial eastern rustbelt. Le Pen is projected to win millions of votes Sunday in the first round of France's two-stage presidential election, likely catapulting her to within one step of an electoral earthquake that would shake France and the EU to its core.

For some disgruntled working-class voters, a ballot for the anti-establishment Le Pen is a yell of protest - their nuclear option against the political mainstream.

Steel worker Pascal Grimmer says she'll get his vote because he's "angry with politicians, filled with rage," and "she is the candidate who most scares the others."

He hopes an electro-shock-high score for Le Pen will jolt mainstream politicians "to ask themselves, 'What do people want?'"

"You reap what you sow," he says. "Our politicians have treated the French people like idiots."

Are the French finally realizing that socialism is not good for France?

Anybody who lives under socialism comes to understand that... except... Venezuelans.

They should understand it, especially since they are starving and wiping their asses with what ever they can find.

While living on a mountain of gold and an ocean of oil.  Corruption is harder to get rid of than HIV.

Makes you wonder how long it will be before the Venezuelans revolt and lynch the bastard dictator.
