Saturday afternoon at CPAC, Daniel Hannan, a member of the European Parliament, noted in his speech how Europe was slouching toward statist overreach and that America was not far behind:
We are screeching toward the cliff, and a couple of us…are trying to jam the brakes on while there’s still time. And we look up into the rear-view mirror, and what do we see? We see you! Trying to overtake us!
As a Euroskeptic Brit, his speech was particularly popular among conservatives gathered at CPAC because it was a confirmation of their own right-wing echo chamber. America really is becoming Europe! Even a European says so!
