We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A month ago Luxembourg's prime minister, Jean-Claude Juncker, observed that new treaties always involve hefty transfers of sovereignty, before asking if it was “intelligent” to draw attention to this in places like Britain. And last week, the other convention vice-chairman, Jean-Luc Dehaene, a former Belgian prime minister, offered a broader conclusion. In an interview with Le Soir, Mr Dehaene declared it “dangerous talk” to want too much “transparency and clarity” in the EU.
Nothing new here. It's the new thing in governments. The "leaders" being much,much brighter than the pedestrian common man are doing it in both republics,democracies and psuedo (China) republics
This simple analogy brings home just how odd it is that so many leading politicians have been standing up recently to declare that the European Union's big new idea is to hoodwink the voters
You've got to protect your freedoms from those who "protect our freedoms" The US version of this "hoodwinking" is taking place right now with the SPP and NAU ...still hasn't made the common mans radar and the pols love that.
