Is the Pope Catholic?
Wait, that one doesn’t work so good anymore.
OK, the bear. You know, the one about the bear.
Is that still true?
Goldurn right it is.
The Euro never could have worked without FINANCIAL as well as currency union. And financial union essentially equals political union.
Since its inception, critics of the eurozone have been pointing to its incomplete nature — everyone uses the same money but keeps their own national budgets and tax regimes — and speculating that this “fatal flaw” would doom the system. Other observers, however, gave the euro’s creators more (Machiavellian) credit and assumed the initial version was simply what was politically attainable at the time. Future leaders, they predicted, would wait for (or engineer) a crisis and then use it to bully their reluctant citizens into a centralized government.
Simple as that. Get it?
(Bloomberg) – French President Francois Hollande said that the 19 countries using the euro need their own government complete with a budget and parliament to cooperate better and overcome the Greek crisis.
“Circumstances are leading us to accelerate,” Hollande said in an opinion piece published by the Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. “What threatens us is not too much Europe, but a lack of it.”
It don’t stop in Europe boys and girls.
The nutcases out there talking about global government? They’re right. That’s where this is headed.
But maybe you just fell off the tater truck the other day and that sounds just great. Peace and justice for all and all that.
