The EU and the US

This all day event was one of the best I have ever attended. Present were many distinguished guests, like Judge Bork, Lord Pearson, David Heath-Coat Amory, Daniel Hannan, Chris Booker, Edwin Meese and Senator Smith of Oregon. It was a real treat to hear these men speak, especially Daniel Hannan, a member of the European Parliament, who was the most articulate and well-spoken man I have ever seen.

Much of the conference was devoted to the instability of the EU, the EU Constitution, and how the EU has affected and will affect the US.

What I found the most amazing is that there is a real beast behind the mask the EU has made for themselves. Hannan commented that last year the EU was only able to account for about 9% of its spending, which gives an obvious hint to some of the corruption and abuse of power within the EU.

I'll agree that the concept of the EU sounds like an ideal. The problem is that there are too many factors to creating something like what the EU wishes to create. I can't see it happening.
