The European Union Is Like A Prison
"Financial Times writer Martin Wolf asks 'Is the best way to preserve the EU bloc to make it a prison, rather than a desirable place of refuge? .. Other than a stray sentence here and there, I seldom agree with Wolf on anything. This time, he generally gets things correct .. Jean-Claude Juncker and Angela Merkel want to make the EU a prison. The Eurozone was designed as a prison from the beginning .. But like Otis on the Andy Griffith Show, voters have the key ... Otis was the town drunk. He frequently locked himself in jail to sober up. Otis had access to the courthouse keys and could come and go any time he wanted .. Voters too have the keys. The UK has had enough of the EU prison and wants out .. The more the EU responds by cramming absurd rules down the throats of citizens, the more likely it is for voters to demand the prison key. .. Once again, it is Angela Merkel is the Person Most Responsible for Brexit .. Her policies on migration rules led to the UK voting to leave .. The cat is finally out of the bag. And voters know they have the key."

Socialists want to give other peoples' money away. Merkel want to give other peoples' countries away.
