    Czech president compares EU to Soviet Union

    He's right.
    In America it was "We the People..."
    In EU land it's "We the State..."

    I love this guy.
    Can't wait for him to meet Obama.

    Czech president compares EU to Soviet Union
    The European Union has turned into an undemocratic and elitist project comparable to the Communist dictatorships of eastern Europe that forbade alternative thinking, Czech President Vaclav Klaus told the European Parliament on Thursday.

    At least Eastern Europe still understands the concept of freedom.

    I'd say even without reading any article it's a wonderful comparison.

    Even though they continue to run these Nations as they were run under the system of Blat.
    Change is a word they also understand, but are unable to activate.
    Pretty much the same as the US.

    Re: Czech president compares EU to Soviet Union

    Funny.

    Lets see who is this guy. He is a nationalist and anti European. He is also a fascist if you ask me. His "view" of the world is no different than Milosovic in Serbia.

    On top of that he has been forced to resign as Prime Minister because of corruption. His government and party was one long list of corruption, nepotism and worse. He also lead one side in an undemocratic splitting up of Czechoslovakia. Great point on his CV.

    The former president who actually lead the Czechs out from behind Iron Curtain called his economic policies "gangster capitalism", which lead the Czechs into a deep economic hole.. which the EU helped them dig themselves out off btw.

    Yes I understand fully why right wing American's would like this guy.. he is just like them. Corrupt, greedy and loves to use government money and power to "help" friends.

    As for his comments. /shrug, back them up with facts instead. Problem is he cant.

    Czech president compares EU to Soviet Union
    True story..
    EUobserver

    Its interesting how that moron says the following things. All following quotes are of him.

    Increasing the European Parliament's powers won't solve EU's democratic deficit, since the bloc's legislature does not represent any nation and allows for no political alternatives opposed to EU integration
    Wow, how many false views is it possible to have in one sentence, showing what a moron this guy really is.

    1. The EU is overloaded with democracy.. Thats the problem. First of all local and national level democracy, on top of that EU democracy(parliament), and then on top of that democracy between the nations and their voting.

    2. The European council represents the nations, and the parliaments of the nations. Both those have to approve any legislations, meaning that ALL legislation is approved by the nations, and if not all nations agree, then there is no new legislation. Every nation has a veto, but if the rest of the nations want to progress anyways they have to give that nation an opt out.

    3. There are parties IN the European parliament who is anti-EU, who oppose the EU and further integration.

    Increasing the European Parliament's powers won't solve EU's democratic deficit,
    Czech President Vaclav Klaus has questioned the authority of the European Parliament
    So he questions their authority but do not want them to have more powers?

    "Are you really convinced that every time you take a vote, you are deciding something that must be decided here in this hall and not closer to the citizens, that are inside the individual European states?" Mr Klaus asked.
    What the hell is he talking about, the division of power between the nations in the EU and the EU itself is quite clear.

    He warned that the European Parliament currently lacked any "political alternative" opposed to European integration, something that resembled the one-party system of the Soviet Union.
    What a moron..
    Political groups of the European Parliament - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    There are political PARTIES in the European parliament with all types of different a varying opinions; Unfortunately for the anti-EU side, the anti-EU parties account for a tiny fraction of those..

    (UEN) Alliance for Europe of the Nations (AEN)
    + 6 unaffiliated national parties

    44 MPs of a total of 785..

    European Green Party (EGP)
    European Free Alliance (EFA)
    + 2 unaffiliated national parties

    42 MPs... Many of whom want national independence and break loose from the EU.

    Alliance of Independent Democrats in Europe (AIDE)
    EUDemocrats (EUD)
    + 2 unaffiliated national parties

    (better known as anti-EU, UKIP)

    24 MPs.




    That Czech mother****er simply knows nothing about the EU parliament. The rest of the article is just full of his false staments, misunderstood and ignorant views on the European parliament, and just anti-EU stuff based on his own lack of understanding what he is talking about.. It would take too long to go through all the stupid **** he was saying actually, even though that was my original intention. The stuff I did put however was by far the most relevant.

    And you probably know that the EU is just a cooperation between the nations in it, not a sovereign state?

    Re: Czech president compares EU to Soviet Union

    I posted the videos, but did not have a chance to watch. Now I have watched and I have to announce that Vaclav Klaus is my new hero.

    In this video
    YouTube - Czech President - Idealistic Socialism is Impossible

    I sign under each and every word of Mr. Claus by my own life experience and my knowledge learned. People who never had a chance to experience socialism he had to experience and I had to have some period of my life exposed to may try to build smart theoretical arguments from books they have read ... or just keep on spewing meaningless garbage…. But none of them ever had to read Soviet Socialistic newspapers… and experience ....

    Mr. Klaus is a brilliant sincere man of knowledge, experience and integrity.
