Switzerland to remain independent

To anyone who thinks today’s referendum had anything to do with racism or xenophobia, you might want to consult a dictionary. Non-EU citizens have always been subject to immigration restrictions. There is no other reason for why most professional immigrants are European when there are millions of talented professionals beyond the EU.

Also, it wasn’t even a vote to end immigration or to cut it down to a trickle. We the, the Swiss people, gave our govenment a mandate to find a better solution to our situation. Ideally, foreign nationals would come here to work and live and integrate like they used to, but the open door policy the federal government agreed on with the EU has created a situation where not only have valuable immigrants arrived too fast for the integration system to work properly, there has also been a wave of benefit cheats and deadweight type migrants entering Switzerland. One can hardly blame them considering the attractiveness of a wealthy state. But we, the citizens of this nation, can ask our govenment to better control these developments. And that is all the referendum was about!

Ideally, an open door policy would work. But just like open plan offices, it hasn’t. It is unfortunate that it had to come to this, but this vote was necessary to protect our way of life, and to a greater extent, our liberty. We Swiss have always been very proud of our independence and the riches it has brought us. We were among the richest on the planet before the EU, and we’ll remain so even if the unelected buerocrats in Brussels want to take their proverbial ball and run crying to their parents.

Like the prisoner who has come to love his cell, many outsiders seem to have forgotten, that this is what self-determination looks like. It’s OK to be jealous if it leads to improvements elsewhere.

Last but not least, when was the last time the Swiss Federal Council implemented a referendum exactly the way the fear mongerers thought? We Swiss do very well at negotiation and compromise, so untwist your panties and calm down!

Happy 4th of July!

Although I’m a year-round patriot (unlike those who only dust off their flags every 7/4), I thought I should nevertheless write a few words.

If you read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights today, you are to be congratulated, but not commended. What you should be doing is to consider how you will fight to once again make those documents the law of the land.

For many decades now, the overlords in DC have disregarded our founding documents and have done whatever they could get away with. And because of that none of us are any better off.

And these overlords are not Obama and Biden, those two are mere puppets who will do whatever is expedient. I’m pointing the finger at those who make and brake presidents, those who like to remind congressmen and senators to obey them and not their constituents.

Tea-parties are nice, but only just. For every acting patriot, there are millions of fools who won’t think further than which politician’s hairpiece they detest the most. How else would you explain Robert “KKK” Byrd’s career or Mr. pencil sharpener’s comeback?

I guess we really will need something akin to martial law to shake people up into once again supporting their country as opposed to blindly catering to foreign interests who couldn’t give a hoot as to which bunch of wallies fill their wallets. As long as there are willing slaves somewhere, they’ll keep grazing.

Happy 718th birthday Switzerland!

It was today 718 years ago, that the first three Swiss cantons formed a union when they wrote and signed the Bundesbrief.

Today that union has grown to a total of 26 cantons but has lost none of its vigor and still stands proud as an island of freedom, neutrality and independence. If anyone gives Brussels a big “up yours!” it’s this country.

There may be some critics, but the fact that the quality of life is very high, taxes are low, income is high and every rich person trusts us with their money must mean we’ve gotten something right.

May this federation last forever!

Washington Times – States prepare to combat stimulus strings

Measures such as these are very necessary, but don’t go far enough by a long shot. The US should return to a pre-civil war state of relations when we were sovereign states united for a common purpose, and not the monstrosity known as the US of the present.
