    Re: Is the European Union a good thing?

    I approve of the free trade within the EU.


    I may also retire to a small village near Mladá Boleslav in the Czech Republic.

    Serbia must be made to suffer before will let those war criminals to join the EU.

    Re: Is the European Union a good thing?

    luners mate do you think I do not sympathize with your sentiments a bit.

    Dont forget my Serbian mother in law and my Croatian father in law were in there house in Drnis when the Serbian Tanks rolled over the hills at the back of the house.

    I do not wish to talk of the atrocities that happened in Drnis and Knin then or when General Ante Golovina returned to drive the Serbs out.

    I was in Serbia last year the Pizda's are becoming harder to find, the majority of the young like in Northern Ireland want peace and prosperity, should we deny them this because of the sins of there ancestors, that game is entreched in the black heart of Balkan Nationalists.

    Has our royal family not met with the Japanese royal family, is Germany not part of th EU, should we deny the Turks because of what the ottermans did.

    What urges us to be a superpower? I think there are many countries in the world in which people are more content with their lifes than the people in China e.g.?

    Can you imagine peace and stability in the Balkans
    No offense, dude, but Serbia is more in line with Russia than with Europe. For instance, look at the whole Kosovo thing. Almost every EU nation, including the Big Three (Britain, France, and Germany) has recognized Kosovo as an independant nation, something that has angered Russia and Serbia. I look forward to Croatia, Macedonia, and Turkey joining the EU, but the likelyhood of the other former Yugoslavic nations joining is slim.

    I think the EU could do without Anthem's and Flags as well. Maybe if we stacked all the flags of all the countries in a pile and set fire to them we would all realize that we are people, humans and find some common ground. We would lose that idea that we are this or that and become the many.

    We have divided the world and set up walls and fences that keep us apart. Flags divide. Religion divides. Maps with borders divide. Language divides. Then we divide by Race, Creed Color and orientation. It is all so much bull****. It is time that we all take off the diapers and stop sucking our thumbs and live as a world and not cower in childish fears.

    Russia, Serbia, Europe, Kosovo, EU, Big Three, Britain, France, Germany, Croatia, Macedonia, Turkey and Yugoslovia. (I know some of those are the same) Isn't it time that all those names become one and we get rid of all this national nonsense. That is so dumb. The lines on a map make us enemies. Nothing is more silly then someone waving a nations flag saying how much better they are than another nation. It is time to get over it and be one.

    Living together in peace requires your neighbor also desire peace. Unfortunately, some do desire war, and so long as some desire war, all must be ready for war.

    Every nation's swords must be beaten into plowshares, or every nation's swords must be preserved. There is not, alas, a third alternative.

    I do not want a fascist society. I want what it says in the ruling documents to be followed . That is exactly what you want. Don't tell me that we are thinking differently on this point. You want the laws of the land followed, is that true? Yes or No would be the answer. Not telling me what i am thinking and what I am not thinking. Do you want the constitution followed. Yes or No. If your answer is yes we are on the same page.
    While I want the laws of the land followed and the Constitution adhered to, we differ on a fundamental level and that's what makes you the fascist and me the libertarian. All your wording points to the fact that you want restrictions on the People. You think people are stupid if they don't think the way you do, you don't want those people having a say in the matter because you have deemed them stupid. Your restrictions are against the People, the rulers of the government.

    My restrictions are against the government, not the People. I don't allow the government to do certain things, especially if what they want goes against the innate and inalienable rights of the individual. I recognize that all government gains its power and rightfully rules only by the consent of the People...all the People (even the ones you think stupid). While this is a Republic and not strict democracy, meaning that the basis is laws and rights not the whim of the majority, I pose no restriction towards the People themselves and recognize their right and duty to control the government.

    That's the difference, we may in practice support many of the same actions, but the base reasoning is different and that's huge because it's that rhetoric and philosophy which places power. You place the power in the government and seek to restrict the people. Fascism defined, everything for the State. I place power in the People and seek to restrict the government. Republic defined, everything for the rights and liberty of the individual.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
