Letter to America
An open letter to all right minded Americans who feel that we are in a period of uncertainty as to the future of the English Speaking Peoples.
Ever since Eisenhower, America has been pushing Britain to form closer ties with mainland Europe, a position that some 70% of the population of this island do not want or agree with.
This has finally lead to us being manipulated into a thing called The Lisbon Treaty, which effectively hands over the vast majority of our sovereignty to Brussels, the Capital of an artificially created state called Belgium.
The European Union is dominated by a Franco-German alliance, which has no love for the English Speaking World.
Originally America's idea was that Britain would prop up the new democracies of Europe, during the cold war.
Successive American Presidents have continued to support the idea of Britain at the heart of Europe, the thinking being that in post Soviet times we would be a platform for the free market and a place where American business could base itself, to do business in the EU.
President Obama wants to take this idea a stage further so that he can deal with one head of state as regards foreign relations.
That head of state will likely be French or German, neither of which have a liking for the Anglo-Saxon view of the World.
At present two English Speaking nations have permanent seats on the UN Security Council, namely Britain and America.
It doesn't take much to realise that this situation could change in a way that is detrimental to the US.
Rather than joining the EU, Winston Churchill had a vision for a global economic bloc consisting of The Commonwealth, Britain and the US.
Churchill was a visionary who was often right and more often than not ignored until our country was in dire peril.
Winston Churchill new the American people very well, after all his own mother was one.
I believe as power shifts away from our world view it is not too late to re-energise the old alliances.
America needs British help in parts of the world where it's influence is not strong and vice versa.
China will become an increasing threat to the prosperity we have enjoyed and we in the West continue to help them secure more and more of our market share and with their vast dollar reserves they can outbid any Western company for mineral resources.
Every week you can read in the press about cyber attacks emanating from China, trying to hack into Western high technology companies and defence contractors.
Rather than support Chinese development, it would be more prudent to support India, the World's largest democracy.
Much of the new technologies being developed require rare metals and rare earths, in this regard China is a major producer and speculation is growing that they will ban exports of these materials, to Western countries.
We have virtually handed over our low tech manufacturing to this country, are we to allow them to monopolise our future?
Americans know that Europe invariably procrastinates in it's support for the US, whereas Britain is stalwart as an ally, even when at times we disagree with you.
A weakened Britain is not in America's interest.
Please encourage your President to support British Sovereignty and the growth of the English Speaking World.
