I actually would like to see a united europe,
But seeing the problems in my country (germany: super-high taxes, slow economy growth, hi uunemployment rate) I think it comes first for now.

A united world is a great dream, but it will probably always be that: a dream.

grr.. EU sucks

I would DEFFENTLY say my country first. As a matter of fact, I voted against the European Union, the €, the Armed Forces, Everything.
I don't have a problem about a financiel corporation, but I'm very much against the euro.

Btw post your nationality too, it helps get a good picture of what countries are pro-EU and which are anti.

I don't like the EU at all!!
We pay more to it than we get back, and now we will have € too, without letting us vote about it first!!

exclamation mark nonsense

Holland is paying more than receiving, but still eventually we will benefit from it, look at the US, richest land in the world, they have 240 Million citizens 'we' have 360 million, that is an huge potential market for companies in europe, thus eventually we will benefit from it.

Sorry, I couldn't stop myself

Sod that Euro/EU thingy.

They've gone about it competely wrong, and what they're currently doing isn't making things much better.

I could do perfectly well being Dutch instead of European.

Why should anyone have loyalties to EU?
Its only the politicians and the capitalists why earn anything from EU...
Why does the small countries accept that the big ones with their multi votes rule our countries?

I disagree, Texas, Hawaii, Alaska and New York (for example)arenīt exactly the same either.



As long as Germany, England and France donīt ask for more votes than my country (Holland)I donīt mind the EU.


Holland rules forever!!!!!!

A grand Sweden with Norway, Finland and Estonia .. again

If you are going to be in the EU you might as well go all the way or just quit right now. But I do believe a local union (e.g. Scandinavian Union) would be prefferable. Cause of the cultural, governmental and lingual similarities.

And stop bithcing about the taxes - they are a privelege not a punishment. You would hvae spent that "extra" amount of money (that goes to taxes) on services now funded by the state anyway.

Yeah exactly escarcha..

Thats what makes it so easy for the right wing in europe, everyone thinks taxes are just bad.

And that especially goes for poor uneducated people.. i mean.. taxes benefit the poor..
