Europeans forfeit their freedoms to Brussels

submit to reddit

European Union (EU) member states have forfeited their political freedoms to a bunch of unelected officials in Brussels, an analyst tells Press TV.

“Free trade is a great idea. I always support the idea of free trade among European countries – a wonderful idea. But giving up your political freedom to a central government that is virtually unelected? Are you kidding? They need to wake up,” said Paul Sheldon Foote, Professor at the California State University.

The concept of the EU is a disaster, with a poll conducted last year revealing that every member state except “Germany and Spain had the majority of people still thinking the EU was a good idea,” said Foote.

The scholar went on to say that a few unelected officials in Brussels are controlling the freedoms of Europeans who are struggling under a mountain of financial issues.

“The real answer is getting out of the Eurozone and taking control of their political destiny one more time,” Foote said.

This comes as the European Central Bank lowered its growth forecast for the eurozone in 2013, with the European Commission announcing that the eurozone would witness another year of recession this year.

Europe plunged into financial crisis in early 2008. Insolvency now threatens heavily debt-ridden countries such as Greece, Portugal, and Spain.

The worsening debt crisis has forced EU governments to adopt harsh austerity measures and tough economic reforms, which have triggered incidents of social unrest and massive protests in many European countries.

    The same globalist banxters are ruining both the EU and the US. they create artificial scarcity with their central banks(ECB, FED, and others) and charging interests on top of it, there will be never enough money to pay back the debt even if the economy would be ok, because there is always a lot less money in circulation than the interests and derivatives they charge on it, its a bubble getting bigger and bigger, its meant to fail, it was designed to, that the banxter families can take the whole world as hostage, its called full spectrum dominance.
    Govts bail out banks(the bubble) with tax money, yet when taxpayers need help with the morgages or creating jobs, curbing the economy we get nothing, thats called fascism, and socialism isnt the solution either, because what they wont tell you is that once you have socialism you are stuck you wont progress to the next level ala star trek, crony capitalism is just as bad it creates systems like we have today. Half the people are still asleep, and the other half are protecting their own hangman backstabbing good people meanwhile feeling liberal and trendy believing the overpopulation agenda shit, meanwhile the banxters have all the wealth and money of the world.Govts are payed and bought, but some are just braindead who couldnt fight their way out of a wet paperbag.
    Pray for Humanity!
