Vote until you get it right

From the Financial Times:

France and the Netherlands should re-run their referendums to obtain the “right answer” if their voters reject Europe’s constitutional treaty in imminent national ballots, Jean-Claude Juncker, the holder of the EU presidency, said on Wednesday.

The Luxembourg prime minister said all 25 EU member countries should continue their attempts to ratify the treaty whatever the outcome of the French and Dutch votes.

His comments reflect a mood of deepening pessimism among Europe’s leaders about the outcome of the referendums.

Why not? This vote-until-you-get-it-right strategy worked in forcing Ireland to “accept” the Nice Treaty. As I’ve stated before, the EU is about as democratic as the National Socialists, and about as liberty-loving too.

To loosely quote Tom Wolfe, the spectre of fascism hangs over America, and yet it somehow always manages to land in Europe. Not that our own National and Social Democrats won’t learn from this debacle and imitate Germany’s national suicide by legislative vote when the time comes for us to merge with Mexico and Canada.

38 years and counting down.
