Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Liberal Europeans Demand Right to Vote in U.S. Elections (!?!)

Posted by wordforit on January 7, 2008

Even with the word ‘demand’ in the title, I thought this was a joke. Judging from the source, content and comments in the links provided below, this woman (Evita Neefs) is actually serious! Talk about propaganda! This is “One World Government” at its worst.

I think the comments drawn by such a ridiculous proposition are the best part. Some have such a way with words and dredge up the most direct, cut-to-the-chase rebuttals that she should have retracted the article.

From Evita Neefs, BrusselsJournal.com: (links below-all new windows)

“American presidential elections are not “home affairs.” American decisions have repercussions all over the globe. The American mortgage crisis affects banks in Europe. The insatiable American demand for oil makes the Arabian sheiks rich. The American refusal to care for the environment causes the North Pole ice to melt and coastal areas in Asia to flood. A weakened dollar and an immense budget deficit affect the global economy.

Hence, the world should be given the right to vote. Because the current situation is a blatant case of taxation without representation, against which the Americans rebelled in 1776. But of course the world will not be allowed to vote. The best we can hope for is that the Americans choose a leader who is deeply aware of the U.S.’s responsibility, as a superpower, for the rest of mankind.

The international community was able to limit America’s hegemony somewhat through organisations for international consultation, agreements and the corresponding judicial apparatus. But that system is in crisis, partly through the actions of the current American president.”

A quote from the editorial in the Brussels newspaper De Standaard, 3 January 2008 <<<page down for English

Warner Todd Huston has a grand response at>> Newsbusters.org << along with the comment section!

I did learn a few things from the commenters, too, including how Americans are doing regarding CO2 emissions:  

“Actually, last year, the increase in US CO2 emissions was less than the increase in CO2 emissions of the European signers of Kyoto. In other words, the US did a better job in curbing CO2 than the Europeans officially committed to Kyoto goals. Maybe the Europeans should reject Kyoto to improve their effort. :-) Again, China is now the #1 CO2 producer in the world — go vote in their elections.” By Galvanic-commenter at the Newsbusters.org response…

Which caused me to look at this in wikipedia.org : List of countries by carbon dioxide emissions  There again, in searching, it seems to be dependent upon who’s doing the study and definitely what year…

    These idiots are too funny to be annoying ;)

    As I kept looking and reading, I am shocked at the indication that there’s a serious thought here, though. Such strange things going on and we find out after the fact…

    Seems I am chiding myself frequently for being concerned about corruption and nonsense while I know that God is still in control!

    Nice of you to visit and comment, Jonolan!

    There was an article in The Times (An English Broadsheet) in which the writer, half-joking, said “Perhaps it would be fair if our European vote counted as half an American vote.”

    With voting statistics as they are, Europe could well shift the balance!
    ____________________________________________________________

    That’s why I tried to reiterate “read the comments” at the sites I linked… I cannot imagine an American who would stand for such! Don’t come here for what you want and take no responsibilities…we’ve got enough of that nonsense.

    I do not see the “fairness” of which the author you mention speaks…? Why do others actually believe they “know” Americans? ‘We the people’ are not of the prostitutes in the elitists’ camps…

    As was pointed out in the links, other countries need to be concerned about how to gain power in their own land before they seek to muddle ours any further. Don’t blame Americans for (political) problems in Europe, then try to fix that from here! I don’t hear volunteers for paying taxes or for military protection, etc.

    Thanks for coming by and commenting, Hadleigh!

    Oh no, I wasn’t implying that it was fair or even a good idea, I was just agreeing with you that there is definitely (and shockingly) some serious thought in the idea of a multi-national election.

    I was certainly not blaming Americans though. (“Some of my best friends are Americans”) Although the American stereotype is quite strongly embraced in the UK, Europe as an entity has it’s own problems.

    However, Europeans are certainly not happy with the American Economy! The UK, the most prepared and stable European Economy, had its first run on a bank in about 200 years, largely attributed to the Sub-prime crisis. I’m only 18 and NOT an economist, so I can’t fully grasp the policy issue, but Gordon Brown is furious…!

    Sorry, Hadleigh, so much “American denigration” I wasn’t sure where you were going and felt compelled to defend the good folk I know are true Americans. Glad to know you have “American best friends”! ;-))

    Americans are not happy with the American economy, along with other issues, either. That’s why we are having so much discussion among ourselves (regardless of media preferences) about this election and also why the ones the media keep in the limelight are using the word “change” so coercively. We don’t need more “help”…

    It’s blatantly obvious that the only one left who will make an honest effort and stick to principles is Ron Paul—in my maybe-not-so-humble-opinion. I’m sure others have “some good intentions” but they are weak, weak in key areas and are not as concerned about the USofA and sweeping around our back door first, using The Constitution as a guide. I can hardly bear to watch the TV news these days due to the way they distort and coerce.

    As a sidenote, Colin Powell was on Tavis Smiley’s PBS program last night and stated that “the surge cannot be sustained”…

    As a Christian, I believe that a One World Order/Religion will eventually appear (as it seems “the powers that be” are instigating) and an anti-Christ who will seem to have all the answers, but that doesn’t mean Christians won’t “fight the good fight” to the best of our ability.

    I certainly and wholeheartedly applaud your attention and concern for what goes on in the world and hope you will continue to learn and grow into a sincere leader with the interests of all involved!

    Thank you for coming back by; I enjoy reading your thoughtful comments.

    Godspeed!
