Today, December 1st, 2009, is the day that twenty-seven independent sovereign European nations ceased to exist.
The Constitution of European Union, a.k.a. the Lisbon Treaty, officially goes into effect today, and its member states are now completely subordinate to the unelected authoritarian regime in Brussels.
All the available evidence indicates that the overwhelming majority of the population of the EU opposes the Lisbon Treaty, and if they had ever been allowed to vote on the issue, they would have rejected it. But the “ever-closer union” is profoundly undemocratic, and doesn’t care a fig for the will of the people it pretends to represent.
The next few months will almost certainly bring a set of new laws and regulations designed to tighten the screws on any pockets of resistance, especially where “hate speech” and Multiculturalism are involved.
With their recently-acquired aversion for minarets, the Swiss are bucking the trend. For the rest of the continent, however, it is now too late.
Auf wiedersehen, au revoir, and good-bye to all that. So long, Europe; it was nice knowing you.
