Czech President Calls for Referendum on EU, NATO Membership
Will the EU get up from this body Czech? Enquiring minds want to know!
"Czech President Milos Zeman called for a referendum on the country’s membership in the European Union and NATO, adding to concern that more European countries will copy Britain’s Brexit vote even as he said he supported remaining in both blocs.
The Czech Republic benefits as an EU member because it receives more funds than it contributes, while NATO provides security guarantees in fighting international terrorism, Zeman said on public Czech Radio on Friday. Still, he said he would do everything in his power to initiate a referendum “so people can express themselves.” The government rejected the president’s suggestion."
It receives funds, but loses sovereignty, and will be forced to dance to the tune the EU plays. NATO is not the EU nor is it run by the EU, and really it is America supplying the muscle. The EU nations are incapable of supporting their own independence militarily any longer. The Czech Republic will gain nothing by assuming they will come to help if Russia were to threaten the Czechs.
The question becomes, is it beneficial to sell oneself into serfdom? Only the Czechs will be able to answer this question.
Expect more of this, and expect this to actually fire in some countries.
