At least the Euzis are honest

Evil bastards and loonies they may well be, but in their own minds, at least, they mean well
A campaign for the European Union to become a "United States of Europe" will be the "best weapon against the Eurosceptics", one of Brussels' most senior officials has said.

Viviane Reding, vice president of the European Commission and the longest serving Brussels commissioner, has called for "a true political union" to be put on the agenda for EU elections this spring.

"We need to build a United States of Europe with the Commission as government and two chambers – the European Parliament and a "Senate" of Member States," she said last night.

Mrs Reding's vision, which is shared by many in the European institutions, would transform the EU into superstate relegating national governments and parliaments to a minor political role equivalent to that played by local councils in Britain.

Under her plan, the commission would have supremacy over governments and MEPs in the European Parliament would supersede the sovereignty of MPs in the House of Commons.

National leaders, meeting as the European Council, would be reduced to consultative, second chamber role similar to the House of Lords. 
Nigel Farage, the leader of Ukip, said that Mrs Reding had revealed the true choice for British voters to make at polling stations. 
"For people in power in Brussels that is the only choice on offer, no reform just a United States of Europe. On 22 May the British people must ask themselves if they want this and vote accordingly," he said. 
"I am sure people will say no to this centralist fanaticism." 
Mrs Reding's comments illustrate the growing gulf between a Europe committed to "ever closer union" and Britain, which is pushing to reduce the EU's powers. 
"We assume Britain's leaving the EU so we don't even bother thinking about British sensitivities at the moment," said an official.
The Euzis are apparently hell-bent on ensuring that one day they will be shot on sight or strung up from lampposts by the resurgent nationalists of the very countries that once most strongly supported ever closer European integration. That they are blind to history's lessons is unsurprising- utopians usually are. Even so, it is instructive to look at what happens when union is forced upon member states who do not want it.

The lesson of the War Between the States here in the USA is particularly instructive. Back then, an imperialist President, backed by a mercantilist North, insisted on imposing union at gunpoint over the South. The result of that particular war was so terrible, so brutal, and so destructive, that the Southern states still have not recovered fully in economic terms. It is truly that bad. The War Between the States, the Reconstruction Era that followed, and the passage of the 14th Amendment at knifepoint (gunpoint had already been used to reunite a Union that the North insisted, against all logic and precedent, existed before its constituent members did) sounded the death knell of freedom in this land. Freedom has staggered on, bleeding mortally, ever since, but ever year it grows weaker; every year the abuses and evils perpetrated against it grow greater. It will not be long before freedom in this land is extinguished completely, and the imperialist American System of Henry Clay and his successor Abraham Lincoln is finally realised in full.

The Euzis at present lack the military capability to impose their will upon nominally sovereign peoples, especially Britain and some of the more rebellious and fractious former Soviet satellites. That is not to say that they won't use every possible underhanded trick in the book, and a few more besides, to achieve their goals. They did this with the "ratification" of the Lisbon Treaty; they'll do it again.

Thankfully, the British people still, for the moment, understand their ancient freedoms. They still wish to preserve some of them. (Not many- I've lived in London, and all I can say is that it is one of those vibrant, multicultural, progressive cities that continues to insist marching blindly into the jaws of its own destruction.) As long as men like Nigel Farage, and parties like UKIP, keep fighting the good fight, there is still hope that the Euzis and those like them, who would rob free men of their few remaining liberties, can not only be stopped but turned back.
