Takeaways from the provincial election in Quebec last week, in which the separatist Parti Québécois ousted the Liberal Party from control of the Quebec government:
- Voters don’t like “Austerity.” Not in Europe, and not in North America.
- If there’s some friction or resentment along generational lines, the cost of college education might be a flash point, both in Europe and in North America.
You could see Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for president, distancing himself from the dreaded Austerity on Sunday, when he allowed that he doesn’t want to totally destroy health care reform.
One part of health reform that Romney likes, it turns out, is the part allowing college students and recent graduates to remain on their parents’ health insurance policies.
Do you suppose the powers that be might become impatient with the rejection of Austerity by voters exercising democracy? Corporations are trying to gain control of democracy by spending unlimited amounts of money to influence public opinion. What happens next?
