============================================

Summary:  The European Union does not have a formal “Constitution” that it uses as the basis for subsequent legislation.  Since Europe was not a former British Colony that wanted to break formal relations and taxation with the British Royal (pain-in-the-rear, back then according to some “wild and crazy” east of the Atlantic Colonists) Crown and the “colony franchise” program in effect prior to 1776.  The European Union is going about their well thought out and discussed legal evolution by a series of “Treaties” or contracts that the various sovereign nations agree to follow after lengthy discussion, negotiation and balancing of the cost benefit for each of the independent nations that sign (and agree to follow) treaties.  The Lisbon Treaty was the largest and most important (in the authors view) that as been agreed to in recent years.

All of the 27 sovereign nations that comprise the European Union had to give up some of their own self-determination rights in order to participate in the benefits of the group and its unity in a variety of legal, economic, social and cultural areas.  I will not go too deeply into how the “legislative machinery works” during this report because I am planning to address the issues in more detail in a subsequent report.  At this point, I will let you “pick & choose” what interests you the most in the following material.  I hope that all the links are working today.  If you have problems accessing some of the following information, please let me know and I will see what I can do to help you out.
