Odysseus, King of Ithaca, would know what to do.
Every Greek man, woman, and child; every European man, woman, and child, has a right and the need to have his or her leaders call for and succeed in Chancellor Merkel stepping down. Now.
The Analysis is Simple
Have we followed Merkel's lead? Yes.
Have things gotten better? No.
Have things gotten worse? Yes.
Conclusion? Do not follow Merkel's lead.
This is not politics. This is not economics. This is common knowledge and common sense!
I have been calling for Merkel to step down since last year.
European Leaders who follow Merkel are by definition, not leaders.
European Leaders who follow Merkel are by definition followers.
As for Merkel, if you can't manage, you can't lead. Merkel has failed to manage the crisis.
The Chancellor has proven willing to discuss any idea or plan that will impede or prevent any solution to the crisis being implemented.
You cannot cut wages, fire people, raise taxes, and call it a disaster plan--disaster plans are intended to prevent disasters, not cause them. A one-pronged approach is not a solution--it is a weapon. The very approach is designed to decrease the GDP.
I also warned that the Firewall around Greece would not help Greece's neighbor--Spain. This is proving to be true. In Spain, the most popular Tweet is "Stop Merkel."
The following are fairly comprehensive.
EuoBondage and Leadership.
Merkel's Last Stand
The EuroCrats Trojan Plan--Destroy Greece
Too Greek to Fail
Firewall or Farce?
Now is the time for European Leaders to lead.
