People should vote on such matters that they are able understand. This is clearly regional politics where distance between ruling elites and people is small. While government should have very limited competences (defence, foreign policy), should be nearly excluded from the regional politics.
The EU was created by people with certain views (leftist elitists) that wont let others to change general directions. I don't believe that the EU could be reformed (unlike president Klaus), thus my opposition. Eurocrats want to build an empire (according to Barroso words) while I think that empires are good only for ruling establishment and not for the people in general. Soviet Union was an empire as well.
While I stand for regionalism, more autonomy from central government, Brussels pushing pan-European centralization of power. While I want to offer people in regions an opportunity to run their life, Brussels building their centrally planned Animal Farm.
I woud really like to know how and why, the other 26 countries in EU could not vote?
I have hear several times that this would be too much of risk to let people to vote. Pure democrats claim so. :) They are so influential because people in general don't care about democracy, this forum might be good example. How many posters share your views? Five fingers would be enough to count all of them.
