Twenty-eight ‘member nations’ of the European Union will vote for European Parliament representatives that hold no real power. Essentially, as in Russia and today’s America, people go to the poll centers because they’re purposely mislead to believe into thinking that they are part of some sort of democratic process. If they’re physically there, it sinks into their minds as such, which fulfills the aim. As with America, it’s another story. It’s yet to fully evolve into what Russia has become, which is to say all candidates from all parties are in the same party, but it’s roughly 85% there.
You say to yourself: “What can I do?” Nothing, because you don’t live in a participatory Democracy. That’s the absolute truth. You’ve had your fun. You went to the polls in November — and that was your fun. That was what you’re allowed. Every two years you’re allowed to have your fun and think that you have some impact among politicians who will still never listen to you nor represent your interests, but you don’t. You change the window dressing.
Does it sound skeptical or cynical? Only for those who aren’t paying attention, just like we’re seeing in Europe now. They’re blind to see all roads leading to Berlin — the center of rising The Fourth Reich — attempting to ‘mix iron with clay’ as the United States of Europe is the end goal.
Imagine if you will, that the U.S., Canada and Mexico signed up to what citizens believed was simply a new trade deal.
A few decades later, you are shocked to discover that a vast amount of laws affecting your life aren’t made by your elected officials in Washington, but in a new multi-million dollar Parliament Building in Ottawa, Canada.
When you ask the officials there what precisely is going on, they answer that the plan all along was to merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a single nation, with a single flag, anthem and currency.
If this scenario sounds bizarre, in Europe that is precisely what has taken place.
Decades ago, the nations of Europe signed up to what was described to us at the time as a simple trade deal.
In recent years, this trade deal has been revealed as the smokescreen to cover a plan to create a huge superstate — the European Union.
The European Union has its own unelected government, the European Commission; a vast Headquarters in Brussels; a “national anthem,” Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”; and its own flag, the blue flag with the circle of yellow stars. In short they are trying to create a country called “Europe”.
There is only one democratic aspect to the EU, which is the European Parliament. However this chamber does not create new laws, it merely amends and scrutinizes new legislation.
The elected representatives there (Members of the European Parliament, commonly referred to simply as MEPs) are predominately in favour of the grand project and have been quiet about the true aims of the project.
As the superstate reaches completion, its architects have felt confident enough to let the truth be known.
EU Commission Vice-President Viviane Reding boasted during a recent trip to London: “The most powerful parliament in Europe is the European Parliament. Seventy per cent of laws in this country are co-decided there. British sovereignty is mainly in their head because they’ve signed the EU treaty.”
And during a trip to Sweden she proudly stated: “Did you know that 80% of Swedish laws are not Swedish laws? They are European laws that have been translated into Swedish legislation.”
These claims have rightly shocked the people of Europe — and now that the European master plan is out in the open, they are worried that they are losing democracy and national sovereignty.
In May 2014, voters across the 28 member states of the European Union will go to the polls to vote in the European Parliament elections. Many pundits are predicting that in these elections the newer and more radical political parties will experience big wins.
What will this mean?
Well, in and of itself, not much; Members of the European Parliament have little real power. And even with a large surge in their numbers Eurosceptics will likely still be underrepresented in a Parliament full of pro-EU “true believers.”
