Switzerland need to join EU, and EU need to become common country with common economy, common taxes, common banks, common law.

It is time for the EU to break up so principled Nations can go back to serving THEIR OWN citizens instead of supporting socialist mobs.

Switzerland, I'll have you to know, is a EU partner, not a EU member. Switzerland is also a shengen countyry.

One could say that Switzerland gets the best of both worlds.

Switzerland has a long story of neutrality; they probably wish to keep it that way.

Keeping neutral is a noble standpoint but accepting all the corrupt deposits from all sort of despots is not neutrality.
Vatican a city -state is neutral but it has no eye to see the plight of billions who had lost their homes and jobs and family due to the corrupt economic mis-oder or disorder in this globalized planet.

Neutrality means not being judgemental, so Switzerland is quite right in not querying the source of funds people deposit in its banks.

My above response is not to belittle a neighbouring country.
And it is not my intention to divert the attention from the main subject of this thread..
France need a leader who wish to behave like a leader and not a dancing doll or singing parrot..
Let me wish Hollande have the guts.
I wish him all the best in advance

No, Sarkozy could be out because he made France look subservient to Germany.

During the economic crisis, Sarko has been following Merkel like a poodle and that's humiliating for most French.

I will be immensely pleased all the citizens around the globe get some Christian charity by staying in a never-ending qs than enlisting a patriotic person with a flag in one hand and gun to shoot the unknown persons in a far off country..
Of course Swiss is not a moral country nor Vatican.
I know Swiss and I am well aware of other values and virtues in life.
Anyway sir the topic is not about Swiss but about French DREAM:

I am a globalist and a non-violent law abiding citizen of Germany.
My humble view is this.
Europe- I repeat Europe- has so for failed to put a nice leader who think/speak/value the human ethics.
Any takers?.

France is not Germany's puppet nor a master.
France is as puny and as pathetic as any of the umpteen European countries.

I was disappointed by Obama's dilly-dally- wishy-washy dance.
When the system is rotten infested with some insekts no one can fulfill the DREAMS.

I'm afraid there's no going back. Countries that go back will be left behind. Time moves forward, not backward.

Bestowing much confidence on a single elected individual will never fulfill your DREAMS.
As an Individual we all are good
and together we would be better and untited we can achieve the DREAM

That's unfair.
The Obama/Panetta/Clinton team is halfway decent.
Look at the animals that came before them.
No more of that
