Im not sure about even replying to that post because it is coming off as a bit weird but Ill give it a go even though I think I know what to expect in

Who said anything about that world war started in caves? Haven't a clue where you got this from.. Maybe you should try reading my post the next time
. As I said, I don't buy into the big elaborate New World Order conspiracy bull# that Alex Jones pushes so no point in talking to me about it..
The majority of the conspiracies are ridiculous whereas much is business and the rest is evolution. Many people are simply too afraid of change to
accept it whereas others have genuine worries.. I have genuine worries about it but they are not as ridiculous as most of the conspiracy points.
Several trade blocs = several currencies.. Obviously several currencies are more stable with a global underlying currency used only for replacing
surpluses or loaning developing nations during hard times. Whats your point?
Who's shoving unconstitutional global laws down your throat? Your constitution is about the internal running of your country.. Global laws are..
Global. If they are infringing on your constitution, you are really supposed to have a vote on them aren't you? Then they aren't unconstitutional..
See what I did there..?
Yes, these bodies like NAFTA are not democratically elected but thats what your democratically elected politicians are there for.. Signing treaties
and international agreements in foreign policy matters never have anything to do with the democratic process.. its the elected leaders that make the
choices for the people.. Why is this so hard to understand???
When it gets large enough for a governance body to be created, the democratic
process will begin to be implemented.
I take it you are a Yank yes? But I also take it you have a problem with capitalism? If not.. then the question about the corporations makes no
sense.. especially when that has to do with your government.. not the treaties. Nothing to do with me.. the EU.. the trade blocs etc. this is the
problem with conspiracy headz.. you lump completely unrelated things into a conspiracy and end up with it making no sense.
Globalization garbage? See the EU for further information.. that's working nicely
Don't be pissed with us or our policies because you've been
sold out by your non regulated capitalist system.
What say you about the promised-referendum? Why was Britain denied the referendum we were promised? Do you honestly believe that was democratic, to
deny us that?
No, I definitely don't believe that was democratic but the EU didn't deny you a vote.. the UK did. And you don't actually have a legal requirement
for a right to a vote in these situations in the UK whereas our constitution in Ireland requires it. Again.. not the EU that caused the problem but
the UK. So its not the EU you should be pissed with but your own government.
But as you said, it comes down to how much you trust the "Advisors" (elites).. Believe me, I know many are definitely not my cup of tea and I even
view some of their actions as evil at times but from my research, I see that is not the case in the majority.
Anyhoo - good conversation btw
