#G0455* – Consider MAGNA CARTA – Britain’s CONSTITUTION

First page of Constitution of the United StatesImage via Wikipedia

The U.S. Constitution, with all its amendments, is 7,200 words long.
The EU Constitution, now formally known as the Lisbon Treaty, is 76,000 words long.

The U.S. Constitution, in particular the Bill of Rights, is mainly about the liberty of the individual.
The EU Constitution is mainly about the power of the state.

The U.S. Declaration of Independence, which foreshadowed the constitutional statement, promises ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’
The EU’s equivalent, the Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms, guarantees its citizens the right to strike action, free health care, and affordable housing.

The U.S. Constitution came into effect only following ratification by specially convened assemblies in eleven of the member states, with the remaining two, North Carolina and Rhode Island, falling into line soon afterward. . . .
In 2005, the EU Constitution was put to the vote in two of EU’s founding states, France and the Netherlands. Both rejected it: by 54 percent and 62 percent respectively. On June 12, 2008, Ireland voted on the text. Once again, it was rejected. And, once again, the EU brushed aside the rejection and pushed ahead regardless.

“Where the U.S. Constitution was based on empowering the people and controlling the state.
The EU Constitution was based on empowering the state and controlling the people.

The U.S. Constitution begins, ‘We, the People . . .’
The EU Constitution, in the form of the amended European Treaties, begins, ‘His Majesty the King of the Belgians.’

“The EU is a depressing example of what the United States might turn into: a federation that is prepared to sacrifice prosperity and liberty for the sake of uniformity.”

“In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.” 
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821)

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.
