This Guardian story informs us that Greece continues to spiral downwards. The economy is in a nosedive and unrest growing.

Greece is like the canary in the coal mine. Being far smaller than the US, it shows the symptoms of poisonous fumes (bloated government that inhibits productive behavior and has promised way beyond its means) before we do.

I’d like to see someone ask Obama and Romney how the US avoids a similar fate, and not take rhetorical fluff for an answer.
