EU Referrendum in Ireland

Voters in Ireland have an opportunity to vote on ratifying the Treaty of Lisbon on June 12. This would integrate Ireland under Brussel's control. As it has been in other countries, all the political parties are in favor of this, but it still looks possible that it could go down in flames.

The Irish would do well to cherish their hard won independence and vote "no". A yes vote would in all likelihood result in the Celtic tiger being bogged down in high taxes, excessive regulation, and a flood of immigrant - stagnating wages and the economy. On top of that, an unresponsive Brussels would dictate by fiat the end the Irish identity.

Look across the Irish Sea at Britain: do you want that kind of decay at home?
