Surrendering to the EU

Posted by Brutus | Posted in Economy | Posted on 20-11-2008


The other day I wrote about a global currency.

Yesterday, Dick Morris, made a similar statement. In his article, he said:

The results of the G-20 economic summit amount to nothing less than the seamless integration of the United States into the European economy.

 In one month of legislation and one diplomatic meeting, the United States has unilaterally abdicated all the gains for the concept of free markets won by the Reagan administration and surrendered, in total, to the Western European model of socialism, stagnation, and excessive government regulation. 

Sovereignty is out the window. Without a vote, we are suddenly members of the European Union. Given the dismal record of those nations at creating jobs and sustaining growth, merging with the Europeans is like a partnership with death.

Morris hammers Bush for this ridiculous decision–and rightfully so. As he puts it, Obama won’t have to govern from the left because Bush “has done all the heavy lifting for him.”

What is it with politicians and power? Somehow it seems to fog their glasses and make them do stupid things. I can’t speak for other Americans, but as for me, I would rather die a free man in a depression than a pauper under a socialist dictatorship.
