A New Dark Age Arrives

The Irish finally voted the "right" way:

Irish voters have decisively approved a 27-nation treaty that would reshape European Union institutions to make them more effective after a decade of eastward expansion, according to political leaders, analysts and partial results Saturday.

Electoral officials said "yes" votes were outnumbering "no" in 41 of Ireland's 43 constituencies — a total reversal from the country's stunning rejection of the Lisbon Treaty last year.

I wonder how many just figured that voting "no" would just bring another vote--and then another, and another--until the Irish were too tired to resist. Mere people were not going to be allowed to mess with the elites' plans.

The European Union will be bad for us and bad for Europeans. This is a sad day for Western civilization.
