French Wisdom

The French people voted on the EU Constitution and slammed it: 55-45 with 96% of the vote counted. Thus, the French have exercised more wisdom than their leaders, whatever the French people's fears and motivations (most observers say the no vote would win because the French feared the Anglo-Saxon influence in the EU -- actually allowing hard work and capitalism). Even if it's the right decision for the wrong reason, any setback for that atrocity aka the European Union Constitution is good.

Meanwhile, the Dutch vote on Wednesday and are expected to vote no by an even wider margin.

Nonetheless, this is a unified Europe that the French, German, Belgian and other EUrophiles are seeking to impose, and like Stalin's purgers refusing to accept anything less than a full confession, the EUrophilic elite is not content to take "no" for an answer:
On Friday, the constitution's main architect, former French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, said countries that reject the treaty will be asked to vote again.

So instead of going back to the drawing board and trying to improve the blasted constitution, the EUrophiles simply want to ram it down the throats of Europe. Hopefully the Eastern Europeans with integrity (Czechs, Poles) will follow suit and start the death spiral for this farce..
