That's what I'm afraid of, BG. We aren't Europe yet the progressives are pushing hard to turn us into Europe Jr. The EU hasn't been looking too good lately, has it? Did you see the policeman in Athens today, set on fire with a molotov cocktail by a worker who is protesting against govt. cutbacks?
I think the reason America has been so successful (uniquely successful) for 300+ years is from our individual rights and protections as well as the restraints put on government that are written in our constitution.
