I was listneing to Nigel Farage(Independent party of England)

as he was being interviewed. His point of view is an interesting one. One of the many things that struck me that he said was how 70% of the decisions made for England were made by the EU and not England and how Brussels Bureacrats (who were not elected) made decisions for England and all the rest of the countries in Europe who are members of the European Union.

When he was asked whether he saw any comparisons between the U.S. and England now he said, "No."

He said how you in the U.S. don't have 70% of your decisions made for you to the point where the supreme court of England is overruled all the time by the EU supreme court.

It's True England has always been an Island Country somewhat like Japan in this and they have as a result a much more independent nature than mainland Europeans do in general and always have. The ocean changes everything historically and apparently still does.

He was asked about the STock markets worldwide he he was saying how without their right to actually be a separate nation that England was sort of Going down the toilet. Now that I actually have listened more carefully to Farage (considered the primary activist for the Brexit and leader of the Independent party) the more sense he makes.

However, I think the problem with this likely is if he makes sense to other Europeans inside of mainland Europe then the EU isn't long for this world.

It's true that all these nations have been separate for so long that expecting this all to work easily in the EU was going to cause problems.

So, I envision nations leaving and nations joining the EU over the next 100 years if it doesn't entirely collapse during the next 10 or 20 years. So, when it is to the advantage of a nation to be a member it will join (if allowed) and nations will exit when the need to.

Greece is a good candidate for an exit even though it would bankrupt the country probably, for example. But, if they had their own currency maybe they could then raise the standard of living for people in general in Greece.
