    No it doesn't - it has to do with the communist/socialist model and political agreements..

    Sure, having a socialist mindset would probably make that country more pro union. That also makes the workers of that country more wealthy and less likely having to live off the government.

    You seem to be confusing capitalism with grabbing your ankles in front of corporate management. Germany has well paid workers who actually have a real voice in how their business operates. They are one of the strongest economies in the world because they can out compete others in the global marketplace. The guys at Volkswagen are capitalists who recognize the importance of working with employees to make good products.

    It's all a lasting symptom of communism/socialism

    Yeah, the Russians and Chinese are also pseudo-capitalists to boot.

    Since they're socialist they do live off the government.

    I always thought people who pay taxes were part of the government? Why wouldn't they prefer to use their taxes to benefit all of society? It's their money to decide.

    It's not their money to decide - it's the governments confiscated money to decide.

    No, it's the people's money and they decided to put it toward things that would make their life a bit more comfortable.

    Many European countries have a different view on what a social democracy is than the US. This country is more into the means tested thing where as some European countries are more into benefiting all of society attitude.
