From wiseupjournal [Ireland]: "[as it now stands]...the EU is not a real Union and citizenship is stated as “notional” [ theoretical - not real - imaginary]. The Lisbon Treaty would make us real citizens of a new federal state legally called the European Union. It would be legally a new union, federal state separate from it’s members, for the first time. We would be real citizens of this new entity for the first time, with real rights and duties superior to our national citizenship."
The Lisbon Treaty is of course comprehensive, but here are a few of the 'biggies':

5. Would abolish our present right to “propose” and decide who [each nation's] Commissioner is, by replacing it with a right to make “suggestions” only, leaving it up to the incoming Commission President to decide.
6. Would give the European Union the Constitution of an EU Federal State which would have primacy over the....national Constitutions.
7. Would turn us into real citizens for the first time of this new post-Lisbon European Union, owing obedience to its laws and loyalty to its authority over and above our obedience and loyalty to [individual nation's] Constitution and laws in the event of any conflict between the two. We would still keep our [nation's] citizenship, but it would be subordinate to our new EU citizenship and the rights and duties vis-a-vis the EU that would attach to that(Art.9 TEU).
12. Would enable the 27 EU Prime Ministers to appoint an EU President for up to five years without allowing voters any say as to who he or she would be - thereby abolishing the present six-monthly rotating EU presidencies (Art.15.5 TEU).
Fact is, no sovereign nations can survive, and no national constitutions can exist in the global 'kingdom' now morphing into existence before our eyes. Bible prophecy predicts the dividing of the governments of the world into regions or 'unions', and that this development would be the scenario that sets the stage for the consequent rise of one who will make himself king over all...aka the biblical Antichrist. The globalists are working frantically to create these 'regions'. We will see what happens Friday 10-2-09. see: "ten kings...shall arise" Dan. 7:24
