Hey guys I just wanted to say this: I as a supporter of the european union feel more european than I feel german and thus - of course - feel very unsecure about my home country now that so much sceptisism is coming up. I accept anyone who thinks a little more realistic about the EU, but often, I have the feeling, that people want to set an end to the EU, just because of some laws or other restrictions the EU has set up in the past. (or other problems) Do you really think that the end of the EU is the only way out of these problems? I mean nobody here in Germany says "let's end Germany and be small Counties again." What I wanted to say: please people do not think so destructive about the EU and think about whether the EU is really giving more negatives than positives to you! Because there is no reason, why you shouldn't be able to change things in the EU as well as you can in your home country. That said, I wish you all a nice day and hope you will get your wishes through at the next European Election in 2019. ;)

Well history of EU is simple... European Communists were thinking: "How to rebuild socialism in Europe?" Then one communist guy named Altiero Spinelli told : "Hey! let's create our own Soviet Union, but without Russians and with different name"... Everyone was like "Wow! it's good idea". And Puff! They created European Union.... Good looking, with good propaganda, bureaucratic organisation that will suck your money and destroy your culture. All to slowly change you into their slave... like frog in the hot pot.

The EU is like a party. Norway: Norway is the sexy rich girl all the boys crave Sweden: Sweden has to the annoyance of everybody else decided to be the PC moderator, and has so far cock-blocked 12 countries. Finland: Finland is by the DJ booth requesting every heavy metal song ever made. Denmark: Denmark is Norway's older brother and president of the cool kids club. He's just bought a new green initiative which he absolutely will work into conversation! Germany: Germany is busy holding Spain's hair. Britain: Invite pending. Netherlands: Holland is almost as hot as Norway, definite 9... "Yes Sweden I know I'm objectifying Holland, but I just bought a green initiative which I'll tell you all about later". Belgium: Belgium brought the beer. Ireland: Ireland is drunk on Belgium beer. Spain: also drunk. Italy: Italy has had a rough night. He crashed his Vespa on the way, his stylish hair he'd just spent two hours combing has been ruined by his chic helmet, France is being a prick as usual, Sweden convinced Germany to not allow smoking and trainwreck Spain just vomited all over his new leather shoes. Someone is definitely waking up with a horses head in their bed! Portugal: Portugal was THIS close to hooking up with Norway, but Sweden came in with the block! Apparently Portugal was complimenting Norway's long legs without written consent. Luxembourg: Luxembourg(calls himself De-Lux) has just dropped his 24k gold money clip. Austria: Meh. France: France has just been abroad, and is now busy telling everybody how -insert country- is nothing like France. Greece: Garlic breath. There are more member states, but the club was at capacity. Had nothing to with De-Lux buying the club moments ago to keep out Eastern peasants. And there you have it, Europe in a nutshell.

Beautiful Monster My comment was a comedic take on western Europe, hence factors like stereotypes and national traits, aswell as international perception were taken into account. A large percentage of Norwegian women are tall and blond, and Norway has a ton of oil money. Hence Norway is the sexy blonde funded by daddy's succesful oil business.

Ireland's a bit weird, the UK (where I'm from) owns half of it and the border just is there, nothing like passport control, the only way to know if you are in southern or northern Ireland is that there is a change to kmh from mph but they still will accept pounds £ instead of euros € countries are hard man

What the people of this world need to find out is? What is the EU Agenda What is the EU Ultimate goal you all really need to find it out. Hitler started with just speaking in the streets?the end was mass murder,it may look good now but what do you lose in the end?the thing is you won’t find out till you are caught in the web of no return, by then it will be too late people.

Foorack (26 days ago)
Hungary is a full member of the EU. Only 19 of the 28 members use the euro as their official currency. 10 places have a Monetary Agreement to print and use the euro as their currency even without being an EU member. 2 places have adopted it unilaterally without an agreement but uses it nonetheless and countless of places uses it to a partial degree. Use of euro does not imply EU membership, nor does EU membership imply the use of the euro.
