“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6

"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

If the Europe is America's future, we would be smart to take heed their warnings...

When Greece began its financial tumble, Obama told the mainstream media that he was watching the situation closely.  It is likely safe to assume that his wary eyes have not remained limited to Greece – especially considering America’s $14 trillion dollar emergency.

Someone who has actually been living inside the parameters of the eurozone nightmare is Daniel Hannan.  The writer and journalist has also been a conservative MEP for South England since 1999.  He says that he loves Europe but “believes that the European Union is making its constituent nations poorer, less democratic and less free,” according to his blog bio. (http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/author/danielhannan/)

Hannan’s blog is an amazing insider’s view of what is happening in Europe, but it’s not for the faint of heart.  He has also written a sobering book entitled The New Road to Serfdom which is essentially a warning to Americans to prevent Obama from remaking America into the socialistic, nationalized mess that the E.U. has apparently become.  One can only hope that it’s not too late.  Hannan seems to think that America still has a fighting chance.

Hannan was interviewed by www.LiberalMadness.com founder and Tea Party Power Hour radio host Mark Gillar on Saturday.  Hannan is likely more knowledgeable about the U.S. Constitution than many Americans.  He has obviously studied it, which is more than can be said for many of our elected officials.

During the radio show, Hannan explained that the E.U. proposes legislation, but no one is elected to the offices that they hold. He pointed out that something like this would, and should be, rejected in an individual country such as America because of how undemocratic it is.

When asked by Gillar what warning signs Hannan has noticed regarding the Europeanization of America and why it concerns him, he explained that “It started with this administration and their series of policies,” which have basically consisted of a European style of comprehensive, “healthcare, daycare, college education, disarmament, common taxes, and when you’ve got all those things, you start getting European unemployment levels.”

He further explained that these things were not happening, “by accident,” rather, this comprehensive system of nationalizing and government regulations leading to European unemployment levels are Obama’s vision of how America ought to be.  He added that, “I am, if you like, living in your future – or rather the future in which your current administration is intent on taking you.”

He highlighted the things that have made America “successful, prosperous, independent and free” as “the evolution of power, an emphasis on the big citizen and small state, the national particularisms as recognized in your Constitution.” Hannan warned that, “If those things are tossed away, you won’t be able to get them back.”

Hannan also explained that since the 1970s that “Europe has fallen further and further behind the rest of the world. It’s become bloated, high unemployment has become structural, productivity has fallen…the most scary statistic that I can quote is in its share of the world GDP.  In the mid 70s, Western Europe was 36 percent of the world’s economic activity.  Today it’s 26 percent and in the year 2020 it will be 15 percent, which, by the way, is over a period when the U.S. share of world GDP has remained relatively steady.  So it isn’t just power shifting to Asia.”

Hannan added that, “Europe has made itself poor by adopting statist, corporate policies.  And you guys do not have the excuse of not having the example in front of your noses.  The European leaders could at least say to themselves, ‘Well, this has never been tried before.’  You guys can see that it has been tried before, and that makes it utterly bizarre that you are repeating this.”

When Gillar asked what Hannan saw as the best way to prevent repeating Europe’s mistakes, Hannon’s reply was: “Stop printing money, start cutting spending and start raising interest rates.”  He went on to point out that the broader solution is, “written in your Constitution,” which he referred to as a collection of, “sublime ideas put together by men of extraordinary genius, and they worked!  They did exactly what they were meant to do…they made the country powerful which was a benefit to the rest of the world as well as the country itself.”

He also suggested that Americans, “elect leaders that have the modesty to realize that they are passing through institutions that are bigger than they are,” and who will be willing to honor state sovereignty over federal bureaucracy, as well as recognize that policy that can’t be passed through Congress should not simply be forwarded to some unelected, government constructed organization to implement it.

He referred to those in the Tea Party movement as “true sons of Liberty and true stewards and custodians of a great tradition.  And I hope that your children and great grandchildren will recognize what it is that you’ve done for them.”

There is an interesting article at Hannan’s blog about Ireland’s debit crisis.  In it he explains that, “It wasn’t fiscal policy which brought Ireland to this predicament, but monetary policy.”  He goes on to state that the bailout which the E.U. has offered Ireland, “will assume control of Ireland’s fiscal policy as well as its monetary policy.  Ireland has been reduced to vassalage; its taxpayers will be tithed for a generation to pay their dues to bankers and Eurocrats.” 
If it hasn’t already happened, Ireland will lose their middle class.  There will be a few wealthy elite and everyone else is going to be living in poverty because of transfer of wealth, or as they say in Europe, transferunion.

It is believable that Hannan is not exaggerating nor even being dramatic when he says that he is living America’s future. In addition, what he is suggesting will happen to Ireland under the E.U. bailout is exactly what this Examiner has been suspecting will happen to every country who submits to the One World regulatory bank system which George Soros has already said is in the making.  The eurozone is a type of pilot program for that system.  Just as financially troubled countries are being absorbed into the E.U., a larger international global system is being set up to absorb countries (the E.U. included) as their economic woes overwhelm them.  
As we start to look toward 2012 elections, it is critical that American citizens put elected officials into office who are at least fiscally conservative and willing to uphold our Constitution.  It would be even better if those elected officials were devout Christians who recognize the dire importance of this country turning its heart back to God – because given our country’s present fiscal situation, we need the miracle of His intervention to survive, as well as be restored to the great nation we once rose to be.
