That was until corona
Yes, and PiS was doing a great job well before corona hit. All the technical data and economic indicators prove the PiS handled the Polish economy very well which is precisely why the country enjoyed such robust growth. And no **** businesses are going to close because of it - that's the same as in the USA yet not even liberals can argue that Trump was doing a bad job on the economy. Also, don't tell me I haven't walked any streets in Poland when I've walked hundreds if not thousands. I'm well aware of the micro and macro economic situation of Poland. A person doesn't even have to be Polish or ever gone to Poland to analyze macroeconomic data which clearly shows that Poland's economy as a whole was doing fantastic from 2015 to the present - and even despite covid, Poland is considered to be the least economically affected out of all the EU states. Microeconomics? I don't care that Jasiek's bakery and Krystyna's hair salon are closed - that's going to happen everywhere because of covid. What I care is Mercdes and companies like them built a 500 mil EU factory in Poland.
Artificially inflated by EU dollars? ROFL first off it's EUROS... And obviously you haven't taken a look at the data or the math otherwise you'd realize how little money that actually is in the Polish economy. Average of approx 15 bil a year builds a few roads, paints some gyms, goes back into the eu bureaucracy, and is taken by Poles who have become masters at winning contracts large and small to stuff their own pockets. Poland received a bit over 100 billion EU from 2014-2020 approximately 15 bil a year. A DROP IN THE BUCKET... Do you, Mr. Economist, know how much that is of the Polish annual GDP? Under .03% if going by a figure of $600 bil nominal GDP. Yeah because the 15 bil a year from the EU, +.03% of the GDP, is what's kept Poland's GDP at a +3-5% growth YoY from 2015.... right....
Sure, the funds EU gives to Poland help - 15 bil a year would help any country. However, when you have a 600 bil nominal GDP, over $1 trillion GDP by PPP it's not very much. If you took away 15 bil from Poland's economy it's be a loss of .03% going by nominal GDP, half of that if by PPP.
Spending on military is required by NATO.
Tell that to the Germans...
And yes, gays have been in Poland since the beginning of time. At least generations ago they knew to keep quiet and now prance down the street like a parade float. Nor were our neighbors telling us to accept this crap.
