ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insight on her disagreement for the Lisbon Treaty in Europe. She clarifies that voting no in the treaty does not indicate rejection on European Union (EU) membership, rather on certain document drafting an undemocratic management of EU. She contends that there is nothing concrete in the treaty. She points out that a yes vote supports irrevocable way out from democracy.
