Preview of horrors

April 22, 2004

The soon-to-be 25 nations of the European Union (EU) are poised to submit to a 263-page European Constitution and surrender much of their national sovereignty to a central government in Brussels.

Is this important to us in LCF? If you care about your family and future generations of Americans it is vitally important because it could be a preview of horrors for us.

Some American politicians are trying to impose a central government modeled after the EU on the 34 free nations of the western hemisphere, deceitfully calling it the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA). They lie that it would enhance our prosperity and well-being. In reality, it would dissolve our national borders, permit unrestricted migration, and subject us to a socialist, centralized power over the U.S. government.


Sound absurd? Following are statements from the February 3 issue of the UK Daily Telegraph,, clearly describing the coming subservience of once-independent European nations to such a central government:

"The text establishes the primacy of EU constitution and law over the constitutions and law of the member states, and gives the EU 'legal personality', allowing it to negotiate treaties across the board.

"It prohibits Westminster [the UK government] from legislating in most areas of national life - agriculture, justice, energy, social policy, economic cohesion, transport, the environment and aspects of public health - unless Brussels chooses to waive its right to act first.

"The national veto is to be abolished in more than 30 new areas, including immigration and asylum."

How can we stop the FTAA? Inform ourselves. Visit Attend Robert Bell's speech "FTAA: Free Trade AGAINST America" on Saturday, April 24, at 8 p.m. at the Glendale Hilton, 100 W. Glenoaks Blvd., Glendale. Tell our congressman to STOP THE FTAA!

And hug and kiss our families and tell them we will fight for liberty.
