This is really kind of ironic. I think one of America's problems is that we have a "Do it and ask questions later" attitude when it comes to politics. Now France wants to mimic that? I suppose that there is a happy medium between the two extremes, but I hope that France does not lose its intellectualism. In fact, I wish America would increase it!!
