EC President: A Federal Europe Is Inevitable
The leader of the European Commission (EC) said Tuesday there’s no way the European Union will continue to be united by a single currency without moving toward a political union within the next few years.
EC President Manuel Barroso, formerly a Portuguese politician, announced he will reveal plans outlining a path toward the creation of a “European Federation” next year ahead of EU Parliamentary elections.
“We want to put all the elements on the table, in a clear and consistent way, even if some of them may sound like political science fiction today. They will be reality in a few years’ time,” Barosso claimed.
The idea of a politically federated Europe is extremely divisive among the EU’s 27 member nations, with Great Britain also internally divided over how – and how fully – it will be able to renegotiate its unique “opt-out” membership within the increasingly globalist EU structure.
Ben Bullard Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
