Ireland: Irish to vote on Treaty of Lisbon
Soon the Irish will vote on The Treaty of Lisbon and here. See also The Lisbon Treaty Ratification Tango and for further removal of government from the people see Issue No. 16, February 2008. And then there is Another union says 'No' to Lisbon Treaty. On June 12th, the Irish will vote...to be free or to become vassals of Brussels? I would say vote for the treaty and then immediately remove yourselves from the EU but I'm not in a position to know given that nations who do not belong to the EU must agree to its dictates in order to trade with EU nations. From here, across the pond, the E.U. is like a huge Soviet-style commune - it won't work over time... And it seems to be the result of what Napoleon in his day and Hitler in his could not do by force of war - bring the independent nations of Europe, namely England along with Ireland and the resistance in France and Italy to their knees. But at least, the Irish will be able to vote on the dissolution of their national sovereignty. We Yanks won't even have the chance to do that as the North American Union moves along with the NAFTA superhighway slicing our nation apart. For the record, those in the EU who say the EU is modeled after the United States miss entirely the founding of the United States of America. As a nation, we were not forged from independent nations with thousands of years of history and heritage under our belts, with pomp and circumstance, with Dukes and Earls. Our nation was forged in a crucible of revolution and expansion, our bloody fingertips clinging to the eastern shores of the cold Atlantic Coast. We grew from small colonies into 13 colonies who declared our independence from a power which had abused us and our Founders hammered out a 32 page Constitution which - although assaulted from every side by lawyers sworn to uphold it - remains somewhat intact even today. Back to the EU - empires come to mind, those of: Alexander the Great; Genghis Khan; the Roman Empire; even the British Empire. Globalization is current man's insidious power grab, gobbling up nations but without the human intelligence or cohesiveness of thought that held some great empires together. According to Jose Manuel Durao Barroso, President of the European Commission, "Globilization is one of the defining influences of our times." Well, no doubt, globalization seemed like a good idea to the Romans until the Visigoths came along. From a step removed, watching my own nation circle the drain under the guise of a tyranny of an "ism" we have yet to name - possibly "terrorism" or "homeland security" or "national security" - as the North American Union is being built leading to the Union of the Americas, I will tell you now these "unions" will not hold; people will be ever increasingly enslaved, and these unions such as the EU will fall. Why? Aside from the fact that Islamic Imperialism is also making its move toward international domination and, arguably the EU is making that "conquest" easier, the EU is man's attempt to do what Hitler and Napoleon could not do before - conquer the people and bleed them dry. People must have stability. Open borders, no effective local or national governments, with only governmental elitism from Brussels will create a "government" that is removed, cruel, inhumane, and cold. It will fall. Who among you will rise to salute the flag of the EU and sacrifice your life for something so far removed? Like our NAFTA, the Treaty of Lisbon - the EU - is ostensibly a trading entity that enslaves you, destroys your native culture and leaves you without a national heritage. It is an entity that turns you into mush under its grinding wheels of mediocrity. There is a book entitled, How the Irish saved Civilization. To the Irish people - save civilization once more and vote against the steel hand of tyranny wrapped in the velvet glove of a "treaty." In the final analysis, I have to ask what we need the UN for or all those embassies in Washington, D.C. when all we need is a few house for the EU, for the AU, for China, and for the Islamic Republics. What was it Europa, Oceania, Eurasia? Orwell didn't factor in the Islamic Empire... But like all "empires" of the past, these too shall pass... In the meantime, we are stuck with eroding freedoms and government on steroids. Let's leave the athletes alone and take the "elected" leaders off steroids. How about that for a solution? Well, Ireland - can you save civilization again? At least you get a vote, as meaningless as it is as was the vote against the EU Constitution cast by the French and the Danes, God bless 'em. I would suggest that signing the Treaty of Lisbon or voting "yes" on it as did the Irish Parliament is treason just as the formation of the North American Union is treason here at home. Just as I believe that going ahead with the EU is treason when the French and Danes voted against the EU Constitution. But if you don't believe me, please read Lisbon Treaty is high treason by the Baron at the Gates of Vienna. If it is "treason" in Sweden, signing on to the Treaty of Lisbon is treason committed by any elected official sworn to uphold his own nation's laws. Excuse me, Baron, for tagging along on your post but there seems to be a whole lot of "treason" going on by our own elected folks aiding and abetting enemies sworn to defeat us...Where do we start counting the ways? Keep up the good fight... Western man will win; he may yield on a battle or two but he will win the war for his Civilization, his life, and his freedoms.
