EU is condemned to internal guilt of two countries: Merkel's Germany for two world wars, Belgium for 65 years of genocide/elslavement the Congo. Germany has admitted thier mistakes but strangely Belgians continue to ignore King Leopolds gutting of Congo.
5 years later this video is kinda not accurate

If the US consists of several sovereign states with their own constitution, legislation, foreign policy, military, budget, etc, then yes. Unfortunately the US does not consist of several sovereign states with their own constitution, legislation, foreign policy, military, budget, etc.

Foorack (9 days ago)
Iceland has an application. They applied to become member in 2009 and negotiations started in 2010. Negotiations stopped in 2013 and the application was frozen but never redrawn. In 2015 the Icelanding Foreign Minister sent a letter to withdraw the application but he didn't have permission from the Althing so the letter was invalidated, and the application is currently formally on-hold.
I can explain the EU much simpler........it's bollocks.

The EU is a country, but it's not a country. It has no benefits for the people living there, except moving and living in every country in the EU, but that can be fixed by collective boarder controll, you don't need the political union for that. Ditch that shit like brexit

The European Union wants to unite all these countries into one. This is a good goal, but I don’t think they are ready for it. These humans are not smart or wise enough to be part of such a union, and we can see that by how they insult each other during the parliaments discussions. The only way they can unite is when the individual members of each society reach a level of wisdom and enlightenment that in turn will turn the government into an enlightened government. Also the refugee crisis isn’t helping

Mein Traum wäre eine Europäische Eidgenossenschaft. Einheitsstaaten (Unions) funktionieren zwar immer besser als Bundesstaate, aber eben am Volk vorbei. Spanien, Frankreich und Italien werden auseinander fallen wie Jugoslawien.

Don’t be fooled. Even though the EU countries cry and complain about how America, as an example, has borders, so do EU countries. Think about it, if you’re European, yeah, you can move anywhere in EU countries freely. BUT if you’re African, Asian, or even American, they wring you like every other country does when it enforces borders. Why else do you think despite being so close to Asia, and Africa all EU countries are still predominantly white? Like 85%+ white.
John McNamar (26 days ago)
Debre Szabolcs Attila But the policies they advocate for would make that possible. Don’t fortify borders, get rid of ICE, relax immigration screening, don’t ban people from entering countries that we know are linked to terrorism, and then Germany and France say we are “Islamaphobic” meanwhile they have restrictions on various attire that the Islamic faith wants women in Particular to wear
Debre Szabolcs Attila (26 days ago)
John McNamar  But they don't say that you should let EVERYONE to enter the United States. There are other options between Trump's wall and completely open borders.
John McNamar (26 days ago)
Debre Szabolcs Attila Yeah good question, why would we? Because multiple EU countries and their leaders have criticized the US for enforcing our borders
Debre Szabolcs Attila (26 days ago)
Why would we let everybody in? Nobody argues that we should do that.
