Ireland Says "NO!"
The only things that vote yes are governments. All popular votes on the EU have failed. When will the rulers learn and step down?
It was only a few weeks ago that both the French President Sarkozy and his Italian counterpart Silvio Berlusconi were getting ready to start up a new EU army to back up their new federal government in Brussels. Now all this is dashed to the rocks as the Irish, the only people allowed to vote on the Lisbon Treaty resoundingly trashed it.
The Irish understand the EU will be making laws that Irish must follow and that the Irish will have no vote, no say, nothing to do with the laws being made. Further they understand the to allow laws to come from Brussels would mean they no longer could have their own Independence.
At risk for the Irish were their cultural heritage, local laws that conflict with the EU, and even foods allowed to market – all the laws now controlled by appointed lawmakers who have immunity for any crimes they commit while ruling. A fixed game if ever there was.
For an example the government of Spain will not allow the recently striking truckers to set a minimum wage for their work. The Spanish government tells the Spanish people it would be against the EU laws. Spanish law is only for administering fines and making their subjects comply with European law and not for actual law making. The Spanish people may finally wake up to what the royals were doing when they secretly sold their subjects to the new European order through parliament ratification rather than allowing their subjects to read, understand and vote on the rule by foreign nationals. Strikes in Spain used to have effect and gave people the right to redress the way they were governed, now they can protest but in vain. Spain cannot change laws and no one in Europe elects the people in the EU who do. They are appointed!
Now we will watch as the rulers scramble to cash in some other way on the federal law concept. Perhaps now the European people will take a new track and go to freedom from oppression. Governments create Borders and problems. Get rid of them and have a moderating commission that will not create a EU Army like Sarkozy and Berlusconi are hoping for but a world without governments vying for subsidized armies paid with money made off the sweat of their subjects.
According to Kathy Sinnott, independent MEP and fervent opponent of the Lisbon treaty, the French government is keeping a promised blueprint on European defense and security secret until after the crucial vote.
"The French white paper on EU defense has been ready for release since May, but the French government are withholding it until after the Irish referendum," the MEP said, demanding that the text be released immediately.
Less is more EU! Stop interfering with people moving around and working and stop playing with the currency. Stop trying to tell everyone how to live, what is education, what is good and what is bad. You could not even define a woman and call them the “lesser sex.” What is right with you? Nothing, absolutely nothing. There is no reason to create a new more powerful law making body while you still have 26 enslaving you already. Why would anyone want to allow their elected officials to hand off their responsibilities to appointed immune private interests? Stop the EU!
