Forum Post: Germany Needs To Call A Special Election

Since the end of WWII, Germany has once again become a respected world leader. They have vocally repudiated the mistakes of the past and have been a force for progressive leadership, democracy, and human rights around the world. Since the end of that war the German story has been one of reason and of its resulting success.

I do not believe that the German People want to find themselves once again in a situation of Germany against the world. The hard work and fiscal responsibility of the German People are admirable, but their financial establishment is inevitably tied to the very banks that have defrauded the world and set themselves up as the enemy of democracy everywhere.

Therefore, I believe the German People must demand a special election to distance themselves from that legacy. Whether the Germans like the situation or deserve the situation they are in now or not, is not the point.

The question is whether they want to tie themselves to a financial establishment that is doomed from it's own malfesance, and allow themselves to once again become the most resented people in Europe, through no fault of their own.

The Germans need to spearhead the effort for accountability and reparations for the damage done to the world economy through no fault of the German People, but instead through the corruption of financial elites in the United States..

There is no reason that the Germans should bare the brunt of resentment for financial decisions that were not theirs to make, and once again find themselves scorned and resented by the rest of Europe, and The World.

If Germans demand accountability and fairness in ferreting out the guilty parties and reclaiming their ill-gotton gains, then they will be hailed as the saviors of Europe. If they tie themselves to a corrupted financial system, already resented world wide, and doomed to ultimate failure, then they may find history repeating itself.

Germany against the world.

I beg that the Germans do not make this mistake again and hold to democracy against plutocracy.

What's of more interest to me than the current financial situation in Europe is that Germany is going to give up on nuclear power. After Fukishima they must have decided it's too dangerous and it's just nuts. The only thing more powerful than money is a bomb that can take out a city. Don't we choose our alliances on who should and shouldn't have the bomb? Why should Germany also have to set an example in the world of finance? People expect too much from Germans. Maybe this NWO socialist crap is just crap. Energy is the endgame for the elites.

We should follow their lead on nukes. The Germans are a great people, and to some degree ARE leaders, whether they want to be or no, and I would hate to see them take a wrong turn here. We need to scrap the global financial elite. They will drive the whole world into the ground. If the Germans step up here, it will save the world untold pain and suffering.

They set up a good system that people want to use is it their fault that people gave them power no. Until there is a far cry from world leaders which there could be in a few months Germany should o what it has been doing

Yes, I am not blaming the Germans. That is the point of my post; and I don't think they should be made the scapegoats for runaway corruption in global financial markets.

Germany is reliant on the growth in their market share for manufactured goods, and totally allies it's markets with capitalism, while demonstrating quite ably that social programs for lower income earners fits in well alongside capitalism.

What I'm not happy with, is Germany's admin siding with France's now defunct admin, to attempt to direct financial traffic within the euro zone, including the attempt to dictate terms of the bailout of Greece to Britain.

Perhaps the poeple of Germany will go the same way as the people of France, and vote out the dictators, in favour of more social-swinging leadership. Time will tell.

I really think the Germans are in the unique postion of putting the kabosh on this international calamity by insisting on accountability before imposing economic austerity.

If the criminals aren't sought out and brought to justice, and their hidden assets seized and put back in circulation, then the Germans will be left enforcing a bankrupt status quo.

Yes! A socialist Germany would mean a repudiation of austerity and a return to borrowing to maintain the welfare state! High taxes and plenty of regulations on the remaining businesses. More borrowing, higher taxes, more regulations, a workers paradise is just around the corner!

It would mean the beginning of accountability for the criminals that have stolen trillions from the Western economy, and impoverished the globe with their greed.
