Just imagine if the progressive whackjobs that ran Europe into the ground decided to get together, and form a Euro-supergroup, a rock band of megastars who would basically do it all over, but this time as one gasping grab at eternal glory?
Imagine no more. Largely passed over by the American media is something vauge and ill-defined called the Lisbon Treaty. Yeah, its some goofy European thing we dont understand, so we blew it off to focus on some moron and his kid in a balloon.
Pay close attention to the Lisbon treaty, as it is bad, bad, bad for America and the world.
It creates the foundation for a single, European country run by liberal progressivism.
Believe it. It establishes a president of Europe (with wiggly ferret Tony Blair as the leading candidate), and wider powers to a European parliament. It makes European Union treaties, contracts, charters, and whatnot all legally binding for member nations. And while there is no official requirement for member states to ditch their individual flags, it does require that they adopt the EU flag and swear allegiance to it (underneath their own, of course, but still).
Ireland and the Czech Republic have resisted joininga 2007 national referendum vote showed a clear majority of Irish are opposed to this new plan under the correctly reasoned rationale that it strips away Irish self-determination in favor of a European one. The Irish in particular are concerned that European liberalism will insist on Ireland eliminating its ban on abortion. With assurances that the Lisbon Treaty will not immediately do any such thing, the irish government signed on. The Czech president brilliantly realized that there is no Virginia Compromise with a parliament: little countries will have no voice and no authority to overturn legislation that could harm them. However, President Václav Klaus insipidly declared that he cannot hold back the tide, or whatever, and has agreed to sign the treatyand the rights of his country to self-governaway.
The United Kingdom, who wisely realizes their economy would now support the shiftless drunk brothers-in-law economies of Europe, has opted out. They know the mighty pound will be tanked for the less valuable Euro right away.
Poland refused to participate as well, but PM Donald Tusk conceded that some misguided PM after him will likely sign Poland up in the future in an effort to play nice with the socialists.
After all, and where have we heard this before?there is no time to debate or reconsider the matter. The time to act is now. No more talk! Ratify, ratify, ratify!
Why? Because upcoming British elections are likely going to topple their blatantly corrupt Labour government, and the expected landslide of conservative politicians in the British parliament will trigger small conservative come-back revolutions everywhere across Europe. And if that happens, one of the first things that will occur will be ash-canning the Lisbon Treaty before it becomes binding.
The liberals, in Europe, too, realize the 1960s are coming to an end, and with it, progressive radicalisms empty promises. Act now, ramrod through, before the people realize what we have done.
Let us hope that Europe can be saved, once we are done saving America.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
