Sanity in Slovakia

 No riots against cuts in the size of government. No riots demanding higher subsidies from the government.The people of Slovakia have voted out the Smer-Social Democrats and replaced it with the SKDU party.

"Slovakia chose the path of responsibility that will help tackle its current problems," said Iveta Radicova, leader of the Slovak Democratic Christian Union, known by its Slovak acronym, SDKU. Radicova is likely to emerge as Slovakia's next prime minister. She would be the first woman to hold the post.

The SDKU and its allies have promised to rein in deficit spending. In addition, they want to "change current labor laws and other social-protection rights." Translation: They want to bring freedom to the people.
