The United States of Europe?

By

According to Reuters,

"Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt set out a radically federalist vision of a United States of Europe in a book published yesterday."  That's even the title of his new "manifesto" ——— "The United States of Europe."

There's only one tiny problem ——— European voters just rejected the whole idea. They hated it.  But Mr. Verhofstadt says he knows what they were really thinking:

" ...he contended that French and Dutch voters actually want more Europe, not less, but had been disenchanted that the proposed constitution was not ambitious enough." [italics added]

And there you have the pig in the poke — the elites, like Verhofstadt, don't pay any attention to the people. A "United States of Europe" would be a fine idea if it had any similarity to the USA. Instead, it is a dictatorial hierarchy of committees, just like the old Soviet Union. It should be called the Union of Soviet European Republics. Just like the USSR, its real beneficiaries are the apparatchiks, especially the French ruling class. 

That is why politicians like Verhofstadt need to keep buying voters off with subsidies, and why they have to scapegoat the United States. They need a common enemy, and we're it. That is also why their economy is mired in jealous stagnation — because individual freedom is the last thing they will let the people have.  Real freedom would cut the power of the Guy Verhofstadts of Europe.

So it's simple: Until the voters get their say, this ain't gonna be no US of A.
