Wake Up, and Stop Them Before It's Too Late!

The European Union (EU) is a political and economic community of twenty-seven countries, established in 1993 by the Maastricht Treaty. The EU has a total population of 497,198,740 socialist citizens. Germany has the greatest EU population (82 million) and Malta the smallest (404,000). For comparison, Washington, D.C. alone has a population of 592,000.

Europe has been increasingly critical of America's failures to live up to its global responsibilities. The US is not only the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases but is by far the largest per capita emitter of carbon and other pollutants.

There is a serious problem with critics who cite the unpopularity of U.S. policies. Those critics always fail to consider the weight of opinion by the 50 U.S. states as sovereign entities in their own rights. Moreover, the subtle exclusion has a decided socialist slant of overlooking the size and robustness of capitalist engines within those 50 U.S. states. The capitalist engines (for profit enterprises that employ citizens, innovate and serve the demands of world consumption) are investments by incredibly productive U.S. workers for the futures of their children and grandchildren.

The EU gets a representative in many international bodies, while its 27 members also retain individual seats at the UN. For instance, European countries have eight seats on the 24 member Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (nine when Spain chairs its Latin American constituency).

The United States (actually a union of 50 sovereign states) gets one seat in important world bodies -- think of the United Nations, for example.

Left-leaning, political groups in the U.S. and several Democrat politicians openly support the gradual phase out of state rights (sovereignty of the 50 individual states) in favor of a national government only. In the end, that would automatically nullify the U.S. Constitution and result not only in diminished status for the United States in the world but elimination of individual rights for U.S. citizens. With removal of the U.S. benchmarks for standard of living, foreign leaders will face less pressure to improve or maintain living standards in their own countries. What a relief this would be for many of them!

Our unique U.S. Bill of Rights, now the envy of the modern world, would suddenly and irrevocably be 'modernized' to the slavish existence of EU countries. In the modern slavery known as socialism, free choices exist sparingly for members of the lower classes, and movement between classes is highly constrained.

Visit a socialist country soon, and do not be fooled. The reason Canada appears better is due only to the location of its southern border on the United States. Eliminate the exceptional freedoms of the United States, and commoners in every socialist country will learn what happens when a stellar benchmark is eliminated -- standards fall.
