What do I have against the European Union?

Why do I think that Brexit is such a good thing? Here's why.
  1. The EU has a horrible policy concerning the Syrian refugee crisis, and they've shown no compunctions about trying to force that policy down the throats of their member nations.
  2. Many member nations of the EU have a tendency to rely upon the rest of the EU and their NATO allies for military protection. With the resurgent Russia, the rise of China as a world power, the continued activity of major Islamic terror groups, and the proof that the major republican and democratic world powers can't be depended upon past the next election, it is crucial that individual nations be tough enough to deter attack, or failing that, give any invader a bloody enough nose to retain most, if not all, of their territory and sovereignty. 
  3. The EU's laws, rules, and regulations don't come from it's elected parliament, but rather the European Commission, appointed officials who swear an oath to the European Court of Justice. And there are a metric shit ton of regulations
Those are just a few of the reasons why I'm not a big fan of the EU. There are more of course, but if I went in depth, I'd be here all day, and I've got better things to do.
