Since the 1950s, the Eurocrat dream has been to impose a federal union onto the old, historic nations of Europe. Since the creation of the common currency in 2002, this dream has become an imperative.
Nineteen of the 28 EU members dumped their national currencies in favour of the Euro. Since then, unemployment in the southern European countries has surged. Youth unemployment rates are staggering (49% in Greece; 45% in Spain; 39% in Italy). These economies are being sacrificed to the Euro-federalist totem.
