What does it mean to be Greek?
Let Greece be Greece and the other Countries return to sovereign independence and choose their own destinies again !
This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,--
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
The EU was NEVER intended, nor was the free market as a welfare organisation to be misused to rescue the sheep in the herds that have already eaten, destroyed or neglected their own pastures !
It was NEVER intended to be a haven for derelict immigrants, religious fanatics who try to impose their beliefs on Western european culture. Or for hoardes of benefit abusing masses from the middle east, africa and eastern europe's gypsies, ireland's travelers who just park their trailers (caravans) and motorhomes illegally, thumbing their nose at laws and planning, in parks, schoolgrounds, playgrounds or anywhere they please !.....or the unending stream of unwelcome and undesirable types many who commit violent and horrific crimes on a regular basis and who have flooded into the already overcrowded EU countries and stolen vital jobs housing and benefits intended for EU's citizens !
Greece has centuries of history and experience behind it, it should not need to depend on it's neighbors for survival.
Successive Greek governments through corruption and self interests have brought the country to it's economic knees, now they expect and even demand rescue by other EU countries when the latter are having problems enough surviving themselves!
The same can be said for Spain and Portugal......where does it end.....even France was on the verge of collapsing. Europe was better off in my opinion as a British and EU citizen when UK was UK and Holland was Holland,etc. Germany without doubt has the ONLY strong and successful economy in the EU. Whatever they did, they must have done something right ! and the rest of the EU should respect their leadership and try to follow there example !
Other than NOrway, Switzerland and Denmark, it appears the rest of the EU is coming apart, the euro is exisiting on a cat's whisker and I believe and have long predicted it's demise togather with the eventual dismantling of the EU idea which was NOT a good one in the first place !
Every Country has it's own peculiar economic resources, some are blessed with natueal resources,etc. more than others. Those that have massive mining and oil reserves
do NOT share the same frustrations and fears of those who have only agricultural or arid terrains.
Much of the gloom with the EU derives from the dictatorial idiots in Brussels who believe they can mandate unpopular regulations upon ALL EU member Countries without proper deliberation or approvals !
I believe in a referendum which definately should be done !....most EU citizens would probably vote for independence and to return to their former cultural and political systems where they have control of their borders, economies and destinies!
Neighbors should NOT depend on neighbors to survive...it's a dog eat dog World out there and it really is everyone for themselves when push comes to shove.....thinks are TOUGH ENOUGH for all of us ordinary folk and we should EVER have to share or suffer the burdens of our neighbors !
The whole EU idea has become a nightmare to most of it's people, only the mega wealthy, the royals and the politically powerful need not to worry about their futures, everyone else does ! The EU's future looks VERY gloomy and I as one reporter see NO light at the end of the tunnel !
