Rather than accept parial responsibility for their financial problems why not send in the unions to burn it to the ground?

That's what you get when no one in your country pays taxes!! The countries in trouble now never had a tax system where people pay taxes or go to jail for not paying them - how did they think they would pay for all these services without one?? A perfect example of how voluntary tax system doesn't work.

Sounds like the the AFL-CIO and the SEIU if they were actuyally powerful enough to shut down a country.
