Irish to Save the World Again?

The title to next Thursday's Irish vote on the European Union (EU) might just as well as be, "Irish to save the world again?"

On June 12, 2008, the question that everyone, not just the Irish, should be asking is this: "Will the Irish save Europe from itself?"  And possibly save the world from the silent bulldozer of the New World Order?

Of the current 27-member nations that comprise the EU, Ireland is the only country whose citizens will get a chance to put democracy to work when they vote on whether Ireland will ratify the Treaty of Lisbon or not--the only national vote throughout all the EU nations will determine the fate of the rest of the 26 EU members.

How did this come about?  Dutch and French voters rejected the EU Constitution in 2005 and as a result, the EU was left in limbo politically.  So what did the EU leaders do to make democracy work better the next time?

They decided to take away further voting by their respective citizens and instead make any vote on the collective future of the EU the responsibility of the politicians in each member nation, i.e., voting will only be done by their parliaments.  The only slight problem is that the Irish Constitution demands a referendum on such mighty and “Irish Constitutional changing” issues such as the Treaty of Lisbon.

The Irish Supreme Court has previously ruled that any fundamental changes to EU Treaties that would change the Irish Constitution's recognition of sovereignty (as being ultimately derived from the Irish people) would require an amendment to the Irish Constitution. Needless to say, Ireland's Constitution can only be amended by a referendum or popular vote of the Irish people.

The significance of this particular Irish vote is that Ireland, by voting “No” on June 12 will effectively kill the EU Constitution—again for the second time--and this time around it might be the deathblow. But then again, maybe not.

The current Treaty of Lisbon was a foregone conclusion, thanks in no small part to some $64 billion USD of “grant” money pumped into Ireland from the European Union (what some might call political “bribery”) until the growing Irish “No” voters decided that maybe ratifying this EU Treaty is not good for the political, economic and financial health of Ireland and the Irish people.

Because the Treaty of Lisbon is needed by the EU to rebuild from ashes of the defeated European Constitution (the Constitution of the EU) and, more importantly, because to pass this Treaty the unanimous consent of all 27-member nations is required; the Irish vote could become that proverbial fly in the ointment on the road to a One World Government. (A more in-depth explanation of what this Treaty is all about can be found here:

The creation of the European Union, North American Union, South American Union, Africa Union, and Asian Union (some of which are still on the drawing board) is meant to consolidate national powers into regional power centers, and thereby rid the world of nations and those stubborn nationalistic traits. These regional power centers (think or Google: Star Wars and “Regional Governors”) would then be consolidated into a One World Government.

Even if one doesn’t believe in “conspiracy theories”--what ever that really means except as a pejorative oxymoron to stifle dissent--the Irish people have plenty of practical reasons to reject the Treaty of Lisbon:

1.   The Irish premier, Brain Cowen, and his EU Commissioner, Charlie McCreevy, who are leading the “Yes” vote both haven’t even read the 287-page treaty!  And they are expecting the Irish people to blindly follow the blind?  Exactly!

2.   EU’s centralized tax system will run roughshod over the relatively low Irish corporate tax rate that has been one of the primary reasons why foreign companies were attracted to invested in Ireland in the first place.

3.   Ireland could not control its own interest rates and would be subject to the geopolitical whims of the European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt, Germany.  While the current Irish economy could benefit from lower interest rates, the ECB is maintaining its inflation-fighting stance by keeping interest rates relatively high.

4.   Current farming subsidies to Irish farmers could be drastically cut and everyone knows what globalization is doing to farmers everywhere around the world--just ask why Indian farmers are committing suicides by the thousands, and why so many Argentinean or Honduran farmers are no longer farming and are in abject poverty.  Is this because of farming globalization?  Probably.

5.   Irish pro-life laws that protect the unborn will go the way of the rest of Europe which means a slippery-slope path to legalized abortion that won’t sit well with her majority Catholic population. (The author of this article suggests that the following educational tool be utilized in the battle for the unborn:

If history is a good guide, the Irish are a fickle people and for good cause.  On the eve of the Treaty of Nice in 2001 (the previous Irish vote on the EU Constitution), the “Yes” vote in Ireland were polling well over 50 percent, that is until voting day when the treaty went flaming down as the “No” vote garnered a huge victory: 53.9 percent “No” vs. 46.1 percent “Yes”.  Back then, there were only 15 nations in the EU and Ireland was once again the only nation that allowed (and required) her people to vote on that treaty.

If polls are to be believed, the “Yes” vote currently has about 41 percent and the “No” vote has 33 percent when the Irish people are asked about how they are going to vote on the Treaty of Lisbon.  This means that there is a significant minority of undecided voters (some 26 percent).  If the “No” voters turn out in full force as they did during the prior treaty, they will win.

Will the Irish vote to save Europe from itself?

Will they save the world from the One World Government of the Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commissioners, and Council of Foreign Relations members that make up the small handful of global power elites who seek world domination, i.e., enforcement of a complete totalitarian global state, and the political and economic slavery of the billions of “little people,” while ensuring “god-like” status and powers for the 5,000 or so overlords on “prison planet Earth”?

Time will tell.

But again if history is any indication, the Irish may yet save the world once again by their “No” vote on Thursday, June 12, 2008.

While the rest of Europe was being overrun by barbarians and the Dark Ages that covered the continent like a dense fog of forgetfulness and ignorance, it was the Irish people who were able to maintain the light and breath of civilization, through their love of learning and literacy that can be traced directly back to that jolly green saint who is loved and celebrated every year by everyone around the world, Saint Patrick.

The Irish people (and you the readers) should read Thomas Cahill’s book and fight this pivotal battle by casting a resounding “No” on the Treaty of Lisbon this coming Thursday!

What would Saint Patrick do?

Ireland and the Irish people: you should do the same!
