Klaus Correct To Veto Lisbon Constitution

The liars in the EU and their supporters continue to pretend that the Lisbon 'Treaty' is not the same as the rejected European Consitution and with the same intentions, ie to create an EU superstate, but some leaders have the courage to acknowledge the truth.

Czech president Vaclav Klaus has said he will not ratify the Lisbon Constitution.
"The Lisbon Treaty is dead for this moment," said President Klaus. "It is dead because it was rejected in a referendum in one member state. Therefore, a decision on ratification of this treaty is not on the agenda at this point."

Ireland plans to hold a new vote later this year on the EU's charter for reform. Yesterday the Czech senate voted 54-20 to ratify the treaty which is meant to simplify decision-making in a union that has grown from 15 to 27 members over the past five years. Mr Klaus and lawmakers among the ruling right-wing Civic Democrats claim that the treaty takes away sovereignty and is a step towards a European superstate.
There's a fuller treatment on the BBC site, with a telling comment from Klaus:
"Our politicians have always found similar cowardly explanations: We are too small, too weak, we do not mean anything in the European context, we must fall into line, although we disagree with it," he said.

"I reject this. Either we regained sovereignty after the 1989 overthrow of the communist regime... or this was nothing but a tragic error," he continued.
The Treaty/Constitution does indeed pave the way for the EU as a federal superstate which takes away national sovereignty (that sovereignty which it hasn't already taken away, that is) and should be destroyed.
