What if Poland (the Polish government or the society that chose that goverment) one day decided she doesn't want to be a part of the European Union anymore?
Actually the EU don't exist, this is not legal body. What exist is European Community. European Union would be established if Constitution (Lisbon Treaty) would be accepted by all members of the EC.
In this above mentioned treaty this procedure is very unclear and doesn't depend from the will of member state only. In fact nobody really know what would happen if some state decided to leave and eurocrats would oppose such outcome.
This is not a secret that eurocrats plan to build common army. One could wonder what would be the purpose of such army if we already have NATO? Hard to consider such scenarios like Chinese or Muslim invasion of Europe... Even euro-left is not so obsessed with "US-imperialism" to consider this to be serious threat to European security. So, what is the point? They want to run Bush's style of foreign policy, invade Iran? Or perhaps they just want to keep all pieces of the future EU together? :) Barroso talks about empire building. Seriously, can anybody answer to this question, what is the purpose?
Which Polish party would be most likely to pull the strings? PiS, PO, or a completely new party would have to emerge, something very radical?
Like Grzegorz mentioned, don't count on political elites. Those people even if they would not be in Brussels pocket, would not have any idea how to run the country. This generation of people raised under Soviet boot, they need to receive some orders from higher level. This is sad that they run education system in this country in the same direction, they want to impose on younger generations the same mentality which kill creativity.
I would actually welcome it. (Like most Dutch people, I voted against the Euro, and also against the EU membership for Holland.) Like most people, I don't like the EU rules. Like most people, I don't like political desicions being made in Brussels without questioning, without debate, without discussions, without a single vote for civilians. Like most people, I don't like the fact that they don't listen to the people and simply overrule..
This is correct stance of somebody who consider himself a democrat. Such person simply cannot support Brussels bureaucracy because they don't obey to democratic rules.
It should be possible to leave the EU. It worked for Greenland.
Greenland left completely different organization, on other stage of development. Beside of that from the perspective of Brussels bureaucracy obsessed with "control mania", Poland would mean much more for them than Greenland. Also today their greed is much bigger.
What do you mean when you say "become a free country again"?
I think that he means the country which decide about its own future, not any province of the EU-empire.
I wonder why these folks wonder about Poland's leaving the EU rather than about Poland staying in the EU and helping build united Europe?
May I help you with this. Because apparently they care more about individual freedom rather than about empire building. The latter was often never achieved goal of Russian society.
