Rather than all these layers of confusing indirect 'democracy' how about giving Europeans a People's Vote? Ask them if they want the EU or not. Simple eh? That's *real* democracy. Perhaps Europeans want to cooperate together as sovereign nations, not to merge their countries into a single superstate? It would be interesting (and fair) to know. The truth is that the EU have no interest in democracy. Most of them wouldn't even ALLOW a referendum - as if they should have that choice. The unelected, autocratic, authoritarian tyrants are determined, at whatever cost, to turn Europe into a super-military State, whatever the people actually want.

modern democracy does not give any real vote for the populace. we may vote for the ministers, but the system operated by the ministers isn't responsible for us, but rather for powerful organizations, banks and some influential people we don't even know of. we cannot change the system by voting. either we refuse to obey their commands or we will remain oppressed for it. there's no other alternative.

The EU is already failing, I dont belive anyone informed on the costs and the lack of self governance can support this totalitarian experiment. altough you rarely hear how an unelected clique of powerhouses have taken control over europe. Neither are you told that the first model of the european union and the way it was first implemented was a blueprint straight from the nazi's.

People feel oppressed by the EU, think of monarchies and empires (like the Brit. one) and how they didn't give anyone a voice. The irony!

@TurmutHoer Sometimes makes me ashamed to be from Southern England... assholes on the street, Cockney's bitching about getting their freedom and making it an "independence day". The British (mostly the Empire) literally stole, damaged, oppressed without choice and colonized most of Earth, the vast amount of time without the permission of the native people or present jurisdictions. The English weren't the only ones though, many other countries did it with their monarchies (most of which where Absolute back then) to places on orders from not the people, but the higher class elites like their royals and scum like that.
TurmutHoer - преди ден
But 'oppression' and 'monarchy' are two completely unrelated concepts. Demonstrated by the fact that all European nations with monarchies are also representative parliamentary democracies that provide extensive political and civil rights to all their citizens. If the Democracy Index is to be believed, monarchies are actually more democratic than republics.

Yes the EU is very bad, they opened everyone's border and demanded we all conform and called us racist for being worried (and rightly so) hundreds of years time when Europe is over run by Muslims, we know who to thank

The union shouldn't be developed. It should be destroyed. Even if that means the UK, USA, Canada and other countries have to go to war against the EU. Probably best to get on that before you build up your EU army. Fewer people need to die that way.

The EU claims to be Democratic right up until a country votes to leave. Then it becomes a communist dictator. Good luck escaping that trap.

There are 511 million people in the EU, None of them voted for Donald Tusk or for Jean Claude Junker.
Here's what Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union said about the EU. "The most puzzling development in modern politics is the apparent determination of Western European leaders to re-create the Soviet Union in Western Europe".
