    Now that the us is now on the ropes will europe be able to navigate on it's own? Setting up a political system whereby the president of the eu is chosen behind closed doors instead of an election by popular vote isn't much of a start.

When Africa stops producing corrupt politicians that kill their own people while stuffing their own pockets with aid money, then Africa will start to come out of the dark ages.

    Most African countries have preferential access to the EU for one.

    That saying, yes outsiders do have an impact on Africa.. we sell them weapons, while wanting their diamonds and resources. There is money in keeping Africa a conflict zone. But that still does not change the fact that Africa also needs to step up to come out of the dark ages.
    WE the WEST made Africa into what it has become. There just isnt any way around that reality.

    When a hustler lures a victim, do you blame the victim?
    When a huge guy beats the **** out of a small guy do you blame the small guy?

    No really. But yes, its partly their fault for being lured or not being strong enough to defend themselves.

    We MUST never have a president with meaningful power. Nor an elected president. It creates bad policies.

    Europe must not be run or directed by a single person, but by all the nations and all EU institutions. A president would greatly weaken democracy in the EU. It already has with the two year president post instead of rotating presidency every half year that moves between ALL member states.

    Also majority voting has weakened democracy. There is nothing more sustainable than unanimous agreements.

    We must not be lured into fools ways with presidents and fancy money elections and so fourt. That is the real corruption, and real weakness of democracy.

    Ok.

    Just how is that?

    Without a popular vote......you don't have a democracy.

    Don't look now but you've already got "presidents and fancy money." The only difference is others get to choose for you.

    Why do you want an elected semi dictator? Why dont people realize that individuals in power is wrong, and individuals who direct a whole nation is absurd and anti-democratic.

    You missed the second part about unanimous voting. What is more democracy than unanimous voting?

    No. In the US people buy their way to become president and are pretty much free to direct policies any way they want. Elections arent anymore about politics, but **** throwing über tactics. That isnt what politics should be about.

    Why do you rather want an elected person to rule a whole continent of 450 million people for 4/5 years instead of a rotating presidency where every country in the EU rule the EU for 6 months. Meaning new impulses every 6 months from the whole leaderhip of a country, rather than new impulses from a single individual every 4/5 years..
    Please clarify the advantage of an elected dictator as oppose to the roatating presidency we had before...
