I'm in the capital of a relatively minor(and to be fair non Baltic) EU state right now(that is taught to American children as one of several examples of places people fled to come to our country from) and one of my classmates got sick and they were able to go to the doctor without insurance for almost no cost(doctor didn't know what health insurance was), there's fancy public transit that looks centuries ahead of NYC's and when travelling the countryside, you constantly see construction and signs about EU projects. How much of this would be possible in our country if we weren't largely a mercenary state? Lots of Americans travel to Europe and those similar experiences and resentment is adding up quite a bit.
If it's not too much to ask, can you hint which country is that please?
you can't blame the EU countries on the insanely huge US military budgets. These budgets are decided, approved and spent entirely under US discretion. It's the american military industrial complex and it's huge DC lobby that robs the american people of 600 billion dollars annually, not the EU.
Which war are we currently in? Where does the need for such insane military expenses come from? Did Germany demand the US to spend all this money on dangerous military toys?
