The French people are way more politically active than the US. If the US population marched even half as quick on Washington as the French do....the investment banking CEOs of Wall Street would all be sitting in a super max right now lofl.
When you consider that France has socialized medicine and is bailing out its indebted neighbors each month and the US has mostly private medicine and is going bankrupt as a culture because of the escalating costs of medicare (while still getting worse overall outcomes than France)...its hard to make too many snide remarks about "freedom fries" or whatever else anymore. France will probably still be around long after the US has collapsed into financial obsolescence from its debt.
