Marine Le Pen: A right wing, nationalist progressive

MLP promises Frexit

Get France out of the EU and NATO.

Abolish the Euro.

Close the IMF.

Not stupid enough to want NATO to disappear, I think. 

Smart enough to want a free ride for France. 

“Wherever the euro went, there was an increase in prices, taxes and unemployment, a reduction of wages and pensions and citizens became poorer. In Britain, when the economic crisis started, they proceeded to devalue the pound and economic growth soon resumed,” she pointed out.

Le Pen said her goals for the EU to become a “loose confederation of states with respect for national sovereignty” and she called for the outright abolition of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). 

“Wherever the IMF went, it asked for cuts in wages and pensions, higher taxes, privatisation of public utilities and caused an impoverishment of populations. The IMF prevents all growth,” she said.

If elected president of France, Le Pen said that she would pull the country out of NATO since “it is not needed any more.” 

She noted that NATO was founded to safeguard against the danger of the Warsaw Pact and the expansionism of the Communist Soviet Union, neither of which existed any more. 

“Washington keeps NATO in existence to serve its goals in Europe,” she added.
