    Poland’s Parliament Has Literally Zero Liberals Now
    http://dailycaller.com/2015/10/26/polands-parliament-has-literally-zero-liberals-now/#ixzz3pvuqzS6G

    A crushing sweep for conservatives in Poland’s Sunday election means that left-wing parties have been entirely eliminated from the country’s parliament, the Sejm, for the first time since the end of World War 2.

    The feat is all the more impressive because Poland uses a proportional representation system where instead of electing individual members, seats are doled out by how much of the vote each party received. To qualify, the United Left, a coalition of Poland’s social democrats, greens, and other left-wing elements, needed to get just 8 percent of the vote– and they couldn’t even manage that.

    Yeah, we
    Yeah we could learn something alright.
    Not only from Poland but also from Romania.

    One of their former socialist Prime Ministers is in prison for corruption.
    Also in prison, the socialist mayor of the capital city Bucharest, the mayor of the second largest city Constanta, the president of the second largest party in the socialist coalition and also the wealthiest mass media businessman, scores of ministers, local Party bosses and so on.

    Right now the former President Ion Iliescu who served for 10 years is under indictment for crimes against humanity and the death of three protesters in 1990.
    Also the standing Prime Minister Victor Ponta is under investigation for crimes of corruption he allegedly committed before being named in his official capacity.

    And here in America a corrupt liars and low lives like Lois Lerner, Hilary Clinton and Eric Holder get to skate free after abusing US citizens and lying under oath.

    No one should ever tell a Polish joke again as it appears they are way the hell smarter than we are.

    I like how Romanians dealt with the Ceausescus after the overthrow of communism there. We could learn a lot from them too. There are several in American politics, the Propaganda Corps and Academia that deserve no less.
