  1. “The vast majority of Greeks vote in favor of remaining in the EU, the Eurozone and NATO, while they also are in favor of seeking an agreement with the country’s lenders, according to a new poll.”

    Sad to say but the majority of Greeks are also incompetent far leftist extremists that support a communist running Greece. They irrationally want everything… for doing nothing.

    They want to stay in Eurozone but then don’t want cuts. They want massive social service net but don’t focus enough on private sector to pay for them.

    Its never going to happen. No foreign taxpayer is interested in funding lifestyle of our shameless leftist vultures. We don’t live in the Marxist post nationalist fantasyland that exists only the minds of our deluded leftists. Either Syriza agrees to continue cuts (aka balance our budgets.. what Samaras was trying to do while our self-righteous leftist fanatics demonized him)…. or the EU will say adios to our communist comrades.

  2. Polls have nothing to do with the facts. If one does a poll in Saudi Arabia on Islam they’ll overwhelmingly approve.

    All polls on whether to support austerity indicate is how many Greeks are so utterly deluded they fail to understand this austerity is not a choice to make. The only choice is whether cuts are within the Euro outside of the Euro. No magic money is going to flow from the heavens to fund the lifestyle of our moron class.

    All austerity represents is trying to balance our budgets. There is no way to end the cuts because our economy does not produce enough to fund all the lavish spending demands of our leftists. If we want more moving forward we have to focus on our private sector. Unfortunately about half our population are far leftist basket cases that have instead just doubled down on their stupidity by now voting for Marxist extremists who make absurd promises they have no way of meeting. Most our allleged “moderate” leftists now prefer a steady diet of recycled cold war commie speeches than functioning in fiscal reality. (see North Korea)
