As long as I’m thinking about Europe today

Here’s hoping LePen can win big. France is screwed and getting worse, but LePen (somewhat like Trump) seems like the most likely candidate to turn it around.

“To assure the freedom of the French, there is no price too high too pay,” Le Pen said. “The foreign policy of France will be decided in Paris, and no alliance, no ally, can speak in her place.”

Preach it!
