Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Can Chirac save the European Union?

Jacques Chirac "will use a live televised debate with 80 young people to counter the forces of dissent that have swept away the early optimism of the Yes camp since the poll date was fixed for May 29." Opinion polls have revealed a shift to "No" in the last five weeks. The vote is on May 29th. Even though, France may end up voting "Yes," it is still probable that Denmark will vote "No". Only one country has to vote "No" in order for the EU constitution to fail. That failure would also mean, by the way, that the monetary union would also likely end.

Go Denmark!

Shew, we can remain a world superpower for a little longer.

Let us hope this anti-democratic nightmare is stillborn. one is really concerned that Europe might actually compete with us. They aren’t willing to spend any money on their militaries, and their socialism dooms them economically. We are worried that we will lose important allies because of EU constraints (e.g., England, eastern Europe), that we will be locked out of important EU markets, and that global socialism will get an enormous endorsement (just as we were about to lay it to rest). Is there ANYONE who is afraid that this multilingual, historically-antagonistic, and culturally-divided "superpower" poses any real challenge to us? Personally, I’m a lot more worried about China.
