On Neil Cavuto’s show on the Fox Business Network, Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert advised the United States not to follow European lemmings off the socialist cliff by bailing out failed states like Greece. Incredulously, Cavuto asked repeatedly if Gohmert meant no help to Europe at all, as if it is a mortal sin not to throw in lot with abject fools.
The Congressman might have worn out his welcome when he uttered the “F-word,” The Fed. Gohmert even recommended Ron Paul for Federal Reserve Chair or Treasury Secretary, which got an instant smirk from the normally stoic Cavuto.
If Europeans refuse to learn from history, we at least can learn from experience.
