The creation of a European Economic Community, A collective of Member States seeking harmony and co-operation, neighbours, sharing common values and aspirations forming a cooperative community supporting each other in their search for a better life. The free movement of workers throughout that community who seek to enhance their skills and offering their services to employers and building new lives for themselves and their families. A common European currency, designed to make trade between neighbours a simple task, enabling all Europeans to buy and sell goods and services throughout the common market in a consumer friendly manner. This is a noble aspiration.
Democratic Reform supports:
- A Common Market. (Which is what we joined in 1973)
- Free movement of “Workers” between member States. (to Grow our economy)
- A Dual Currency “The Punt and the Euro” to protect against a possible Euro Collapse.
However Democratic Reform is concerned by and rejects:
The evolution of a Single European State, (a United States of Europe) And if we continue as at present, that Single State will be created without our consent.
But what will a “Single European State” mean for Ireland ?
- A European Government:
Both Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron have called for further integration of the European Union and the establishment of a European Government. That means the Irish Government would be reduced to the role of a Local Administration “The Irish Government cannot pass any legislation which is contrary to a European directive” (according to a Government Minister responding to a question in Dail Eireann) (Fact)
- European Taxes (imminent)
The European Corporation Tax is at an advanced stage of preparation and President Emmanuel Macron (France) has stated that Ireland must not be allowed a “Veto”, on European tax policy, and it is impossible for Ireland to stop these reforms.. The Irish Government has expressed it concern (15/01/2019) but has no power to stop the removal of the current European requirement of unanimity of matters of taxation.
- Exiting the United Nations (inevitable)
As of 29th November 2018, Angela Merkel requested that the French vacate their seat on the UN Security Council, in favour of “Europe” How long before all 27 member states are requested to surrender their seats in the UN General Assembly in favour of a single “European” seat in the general Assembly. The United States of America has 50 states, yet is entitled to just one seat in the General Assembly, and one seat on the Security Council.
- A European Army (P.E.S.C.O).
In February 2018, Leo Varadkar committed Ireland to join P.E.S.C.O a “Common Defense” (that is a European army) in Violation of the Irish Constitution which clearly declares : (article 29 section 4 paragraph 9)”
The State shall not adopt a decision taken by the European Council to establish a common defence pursuant to Article 42 of the Treaty on European Union where that common defence would include the State.”
