With the coming of the new currency, the Euro, everything just got a little bit more expensive. And besides that it seems that we’re paying taxes to Europe, which are used to help other countries to bring there industry or agriculture to a level were they’re able to compete with ours, while we’re not allowed to put funding (our own money) in those same industries in our own country, because ‘that wouldn’t be fair to the other countries in the union. I can’t think of much useful reasons for the entire operation for now. But there's no stopping the politicians, so I hope It'll get better....

Surprising though how strong the belief is that Canada's the best ally. Apart from Alberta, Canadians seem pretty much.... "cold" towards a closer relationship with the States. they seem more like the French or the Germans if you guys know what I mean.
