"Thank God the French had the Common Sense to Read the Document"

by Miguel de Icaza

Confused about the EU constitution?

Typically, we think of a constitution as a document that embraces the highest ideals of a people; laying out clear guidelines for safeguarding civil liberties and the rule of law; not a compendium of perks for big business and their cronies in high finance. The EU constitution simply hands over more power to an ``unelected'' class of euro-parasites who want to suck the life out of the social welfare system that has raised the standard of living for the middle class to the highest in the world. The French were smart enough to say, ``non!''

From here. It is a fun read.
