The eu dies NOT need political or economic federalism. The eu is a dictatorship, the people have voted at every opportunity to oppose the eu. The people do not want it but as in all dicratorships the people are ignored and denied there democratic right to choose there countries future. The eu has failed miserably and has weakened Europe. The euro needs to be dispanded which is what's going to happen now. It's all collapsing, you can not force a union on the people that they haven't voted for and do not want, that's called dictatorship and like the ussr and all ductatorships its going to implode

The Irish voted no, and they were ignored. The French voted no and they were ignored, the French voted no and they were ignored. Only in the eu dictatorship could you give people the vote but when they say no ignore them and tell them to vote again and keep voting untill you get it right. The eu is a disgrace to western values of democracy and must be dispamded to free us from these dictators. No other countries were given the vote because there leaders know they would vote no so they are denied the vote. This is the biggest attack on democracy since the nazis, and once again its Germany leading it. But now its dying, good riddance

The dutch too voted no and they too were ignored, the British and Germans haven't been given the vote because they know we would vote no, so would almost every country and that is why we are denied our right to vote and our right to decide our countries future, not some unelected eu buerocrats

In fact it is the Nazi's
the central bank of europe is the Central Bank of Germany, the Deutsche Bundesbank. The Bundesbank issues the Euro - at a price.
Germany OWNS the E.U.!

But the people have allready voted saying that the do NOT want that. They like being individual countries and do not want to become a united states of Europe. You can not force something on the people that they do not want and have voted against at every opportunity, if they do not want ot then it will nor happen, that is democracy, the eu is dictatorship

Look what happened when Russia forced east European countries into a union that they did not want, the ussr. If the people are against it it will not last, the eu dictatorship just like the ussr dictatorship will come crumbling down a Brussels Berlin wall

Not dictatorship...anymore than Organization of American States, NATO etc but some have more clout(economic power) Same thing here(US) but reflected in electoral votes. That is why places like Mississippi, that stills hangs blacks, and has collective reading IQ of the second grade, boils dirt and dead rats for dinner has...what 3 votes...Alabama??? while Ca has GNP larger than most countries. That is why you have these naive creepo weirdos, who would scare pubic hair straight, talking about "Nazi Germany" Hey they will never live that down, but they are industrial engine....like it or not

Usa is a real democracy ran by elected representatives, the eu is wholly unelected, controlled by the unelected eu commision. Americans are American and Luke it that way. Europeans do not want to be a united states of Europe, they Luke being French,British,German and Italians, they do not want the eu and have cited against it every time. Do you think its ok to force a union on the people who have voted against it every time. That's is dictatorship. Democracy is the vote and if people vote against it then that's it, that is democracy, the eu is dictatorship

How would Americans feel if after an election you voted for a president but then were told that you had voted for the wrong guy and had to vote again and again untill you get it right, that's the eu

I agree with tra on that point which is probably the only time I will agree with him ever. How did the US become a common country? Through war! European countries have absolute different interests and a common country would be a disaster for the strong EU countries (GER, UK, France, Scandinavian countries, Netherlands). Also evolving countries that are on a good growth like Poland would suffer. The Southern European countries would profit. Why would Germany, Britain or France give up their independence and power? Why? Please, give me an answer to that. People Know that they would lose their wealth
