Maintening status quo - sometimes - is more work than it might seem.
I know, Eurocrats scare me. They will do anything, lie, cheat, and steal to get what they want. Much like the communists of old, they claim to be Pro-Europe. They support the "community method." What the hell does that even mean? More
bureaucracy, more regulation, more integration of banking and financial responsibilities all created to give more power to themselves, slowly but surely. It is the complete opposite of military blitzkrieg. It is a slow political siege on the countries of Europe.
The EU regularly goes against referendums letting the people decide their fate with regards to the EU. If their is a referendum result they don't like, they ignore it and chastise the people for being selfish. Many EU MEP's are socialists. Manuel Barroso, used to be a Communist. He has never been an elected representative. Only a bureaucrat. This is the typical EU leader.
