Do you want a united Europe?

Dear Europeans,

I want to take the opportunity to ask the question, all our politicians should have asked. Do you want Europe? I mean not as a union of many sovereign states! Instead I mean a united Europe. Many people are talking about it. The media sometimes use it to scare, sometimes to inpire people. Is the dream of Europe, that is dreamed by many politicians really the dream of the people? I personally think a Europe build by the people is the only way to restore our reputation and our future. In my opinion, we should start a national assembly right away and build something the world hasn't seen before. It maybe take us 10 years, but sooner or later we have to start if we don't want our future shattered by old politicians who are obsessed with their power. What do you think?

      Jun 13 2013: Does that mean you are agianst the idea of europe itself or against the current system? Do you want that every country should take care about it's own business?
      • Jun 14 2013: Not at all! I was not being ironic!
        I do want a United Europe without borders, and the Euro-Parliament to be our new common "National" Democratic Parliament. I think that no country can afford to only care about its own business anymore...
