European Union Faces Huge Election Setback

European Union Faces Huge Election Setback

by C Howard Diaz

I learned a new word today, just when I thought I had heard them all. The new word is Eurosceptic. Guess what it means.

It is anyone or any party of people who don’t believe in the European Union. Can you imagine that? Has any American citizen been told that there are such people as Eurosceptics? I don’t think so.

Why would anyone be Eurosceptic? Well they are those silly people who believe in national pride, national boundaries and national citizens. In France and the United Kingdom, they are the ones who don’t want to turn over control of their country to the European Parliament.

How silly they are, imagine a Frenchman wanting to be proud to be a Frenchman. Don’t they know we are one world and we must be taught to think in those terms? What’s wrong with those far right wing immigration hating racists? Imagine them wanting to keep France for the French or the UK for the British. Don’t they know there are no such things as borders anymore?

You see, the European Union folks tricked the individual citizens of individual countries to adopt a central government type thing like we have with Washington DC. The difference, of course, was that the countries that joined the EU basically were supposed to become subservient to the EU parliament.

It all started with the innocent introduction of a new monetary system called the EU. I have a small collection of the new coins. The people of Europe were told it would be a better way of expanding trade. Later and over the years the central government in Brussels has had a growing influence on the people in each EU country.

So now the “Eurosceptic” has risen in an attempt to take back their countries. I wish them well.
