Hi, I am new here, as you have rightly assumed. I am from Germany and I am proud of my country and history. Our fight for freedom and an appropriate place in the international community is not forgotten and will be continued. Great nations have to accept each other or they aren´t great. American politics are importand to european countries as well as to the rest of the world and so it is not a good idea to ignore them. Well I don´t like the EU, it´s a criminal organisation, which destroys europe. It has no legitimation, it is a privat organisation, which wangels government competences and disturbs the so-called democratic process in the memberstates by influencing anything without any limitation or field of competence.
