    Do you think that some day the EU will yield power away from the member countires - and than the EU members will in essences become "States" in a new country to be called the United States of Europe?

    First they have to survive the economic effects of forcing all the differing currencies into a common value system.

    As the weaker nations fold financially they drag the Euro down...

    But, then enough may fail to allow only The Ten to survive intact as the State of the Antichirst?

    The news reported that Ireland is forbidden to hold a general election until their bail out is paid off - by the EU. There must be a lot of power given already, maybe being a state is a pipe dream.

    That news report is false - election will be in the spring, around 1 March. 'The Taoiseach has insisted he will lead the party into the next General Election early next year.'

    'STORY

    Ireland's debt will not be paid by then.

    It is the IMF who is putting restrictions on Ireland's budget plans after they asked for a financial bail-out.

    The EU is in a shambles at them moment. There is serious threat to the very existence of the euro as a currency.

    My son has been following conspiracy theories and thinks that Prince Charles could be the anti-christ!

    (No one could deny his qualifications after they way he treated Lady Di!)

    If so, then the Griffin of England will remain in the EU...

    (As I understand it, the Public Symbol for the UK is a Lion? But, several of the Royals have Griffins in their Heraldy?)

    The IMF did tell Ireland how she had to structure her budget, but after 90 billion euro loan they have that right, IMNSHO.

    Probably a done deal but it doesn't matter. The international corporations will own and control the most of the world in either case.

    Will not happen unless the people who control the international corporations want it to happen.
