Confusion is a terrible reason to make such a big change...in my humble opinion.

Hey Armand.... nice to see you. Just never know where you are going to run into a familiar face ... ~smiles~

Well ... I do not live in Europe ... as you know ... so it is difficult for me attatch an emotional or personal side to the issue. And lets face is ... there would I suspect be a huge emotional issue involved.

I guess in thinking about it... I would have to wonder if people would be able to put aside their stereotypes and the history they bring to the table .... in a goal for a European union.

I would also wonder .... if the "power" ... so to speak and therefore the policy making .... wouldn't just find itself divided among representatives from the larger countries. Would the small countries ... really benefit by getting a stronger voice .... improved economics... etc. There would I think ... also be the issue of national sovereignty. I can see how.... from an economic standpoint ... why a European union would be desired ... it certainly presents a huge single market.

It is a difficult question... and would I suspect prove to be an even more difficult undertaking. As to whether or not those difficulities would pale when placed against the benefits ... I suspect that would be known.... only over the course of time.

I would say that I definitely do not want all the European countries to become just one big one. I already hate the fact that my country (England) is part of the European Union so that extra step would do my head in. That, by the way, is not my way of saying that I hate Europeans, and I don't think that I'm the only member country with a right to grouse about it; I hate the loss of individuality and the fact that someone in another country can actually effect the laws in my own and I think that could apply to anyone within the Union. The fact that Brussels has just made it illegal for any country to ban genetically modified crops is disgusting and to my mind is the last straw. I want my country to get the hell out of Europe, not further in.
The heart that I love must have wild places.

well..I dont have the proper education to really comment on this, but...I would have to say I think they should be one big happy country...*dream on, huh*...
I have my personal reasons for thinking such....
but my ignorance in the political format causes me to simply state my humble opinion..and of course opinions are like assholes..everyone has one!!!....

eh, not much inlightenment on my end of the spectrum.....sorry...

For the saken of being short and sweet, against.

Well...okay, maybe it wasn't sweet, and it's slowly losing it's shortness, but you get the point.

Myth is all that is needed

aside from them being odd (french toast isn't french, pasta didn't come from italy? there was something else I can't remember about people from spain not being spainards in where ever that was -.- ).. there is no reason to poke and prod at what we think they should or shouldnt do.. they will eventually choose to form a whole country or not. they are still doing ok so far, nothing big is blown up and hell still freezes over every winter.

and that is all I have to say.

As a European I would like to see a Europe with close economic ties and a unified voice concerning foreign politics. The first part is already a reality, the second, alas, is not yet achieved. But in my opinion it should also stay an alliance of independent, sovereign states. Diversity makes things interesting, unity makes you strong. Europe needs a mix of both and the EU is still quite a bit away from that. Apart from that I'm grateful to live in a union with countries which share so much history and culture but which are still so pleasantly different from each other.

Well said, Kane. I agree. Europe could use more unity, but the independant countries shouldn't necessarily be made into one big one.
