European Constitution in Tatters!

The Dutch -- like the French -- have rejected the E.U. Constitution and the homogenization that would have followed.

Prime Minister Tony Blair is not making a United Europe a priority any more -- Africa is more important.

The Euro is floundering.

What are we to make of all of this? I believe it is a Revolution thwarted. The whole EU movement was contrary to Europe's best interests. Europe should not model itself after the United States government or even worse some world government model. Europe should be a group of nations -- not one nation.

Europe is better off without a large, centralized government at the Hague. Freedom for citizens in different nations can be accomplished best without a large centralized bureaucracy. A Frenchman's best protection against German oppression is a sovereign France.

Now, if only we Minnesotans could find a way to be sovereign, so that we would not be subject to our District of Columbia masters.

Ah, that sounds rather like a plug for states rights. I could not agree more.
