National politics in the EU

EUCO is with out a doubt the European "institution" that possess the real power over European policy. EUCO is additionally, undoubtedly Europe's great stumbling block and represents the democratic deficit in European politics. EUCO is the European institution where national interests often wins over common sense and the common good of the European people.

The fact, that this European institution, with the greatest power don't represent the interests of Europe as a hole is a democratic disgrace for the union.

Let's be clear, i don't mean that Member States interests shouldn't be taken seriously in European politics, but it can't be at the expense of the common good and we can't allow for Europe to be the battleground for national politicians who wants to take easy political points before national elections.

The Member States representation in Europe must therefore be distinguished from national govertnments and elected in separate elections.
