from America’s Right:
It’s time for intelligent austerity. We need a cutback in government services, a sacrifice in expectations, and a unification of the American people. We are a nation that is more dependent on the federal government then our next door neighbor. It’s time we get back to community. Pain is inevitable, but we must get back in touch with our roots in the Puritanical hard work ethic that drove the Pilgrims to America, and we must dare to converse about our struggles with those who can help us most — God and community.
The choices we will need to make will not be easy. The current administration’s debt commission came up with a few ideas, but we need to take it further. We need to reexamine our priorities, on a personal and governmental level, and act accordingly.
Thankfully, what we saw at this time last month shows that Americans are in the process of coming together. Harder economic times will do that to people. And, in times in which domestic terrorism is occurring and thankfully being foiled daily, one cannot afford not to know their neighbor. I firmly believe that if Americans get back in touch with each other, share our sacrifices and goals, that momentum for change will surely carry through to Washington. Right now, watching a lame duck session of Congress on my television, I look at Washington and I find myself asking just what Mr. Nigel Farrage declared earlier this week: “Who the hell do you think you are?”

Barack Obama born in Kenya? Pah! If anything, he was born in Brussels. The policies his administration is pursuing amount to comprehensive Europeanisation: European carbon taxes, European foreign policy, European healthcare, European daycare, European disarmament, European industrial intervention and, inevitably, European unemployment rates!

Daniel Hannan is a writer and journalist, and has been Conservative MEP for South East England since 1999. He speaks French and Spanish and loves Europe, but believes that the EU is making its constituent nations poorer, less democratic and less free. He is the winner of the Bastiat Award for online journalism. British Tea Party Movement to launch on Saturday:
Labour has raised more than a trillion pounds in additional taxation since 1997. Yet, unbelievably, Gordon Brown has still managed to run up a deficit of 12.6 per cent of GDP (Greece’s is 12.7 per cent). A far lower level of taxation brought Americans out in spontaneous protest last year.
If you happen to be coming to the Conservative Spring Conference, do please pop in: the Tea Party is five minutes’ walk from the conference venue. It is, however, outside the security zone, and anyone is welcome to come. Oh, and this being England, we’ll be serving actual, you know, tea. I hope to see some of this blog’s readers there.

We woke up in a different country today. Alright, it doesn’t look very different. The trees still seem black against the winter sun; the motorways continue to jam inexplicably; commuters carry on avoiding eye contact. But Britain is no longer a sovereign nation. At midnight last night, we ceased to be an independent state, bound by international treaties to other independent states, and became instead a subordinate unit within a European state.
Yes, a European state. Take a quick dekko at the definition set out in Article One of the1933 Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States: “The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: (a) a permanent population; (b) a defined territory; (c) government; and (d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.”
Until yesterday, the EU qualified on grounds (a), (b) and (c). Now it has ticked the final box. Under the Lisbon Treaty, which came into force today, it acquires “legal personality”, which gives it the right to sign accords and treat with other states. Nor is this right simply theoretical: the EU now has a foreign minister, a diplomatic corps (the European External Action Service) and 160 overseas embassies.

Isn’t it time for him to go home yet? It is good, in theory, that the new President of the United States is taking so much time to tour Europe. He arrived in London last Tuesday, has been to Strasbourg, Prague yesterday and now he’s off to Turkey. It shows, I suppose, that he cares about the outside world and that is ‘A Good Thing’. But his long stay means that we are hearing rather a lot from him, way too much in fact.
His speeches have long under-delivered, usually leaving a faintly empty sensation in this listener even though I welcomed, moderately, his victory last year as offering the possibility of a fresh start and a boost to confidence.
Yet, we are told that he is a great orator and in one way he certainly is. He does have a preternatural calm in the spotlight and a mastery of the cadences we associate with the notable speakers in US history – such as JFK and MLK. But beyond that, am I alone in finding him increasingly to be something of a bore?
BE SURE TO READ THE COMMENTS (Here are a few):
How bout you guys keep him for awhile longer? Cant we try and make a trade? lol…yeah, we arent too happy with him over in the states.
Yes, Iain -
And, 47% of us realized this a year ago when you couldn’t get enough of him. It’s a shame you and Hannan couldn’t have come out of your Zombie-like trance a bit sooner.
You are realizing what many of us in the US realized many months before our presidential election: the Emperor has no clothes.
