The Article is "Spot-On" as the Europeans Would Say!

Reader comment on item: Europeans: From Venus?

This is the best article I've seen in contrasting Americans to Europeans. I am an American living in Europe and fully agree with every single comment presented.

So, if we can agree that Europeans prefer to spend large sums of money on their social services (via high tax rates), and little on their military. Why, please tell me why, America spends so much on its military garrisoned in Europe...why are we there...and why should Americans pay (via tax rates) for something Europeans should pay for? We need to ship all American military stationed in Europe back to America unless Europe agrees to fully pay for this security service! American taxpayers need a break!
