"Estonia is not the only one – in some East European countries EU aid makes up 97 percent of its budget revenues."

This is a lie. I looked up numbers for the poorest EU member: Bulgaria.

http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/scr/2011/cr11179.pdf

In 2011 aid made up 7,5% of revenues. Even the poorest country is less dependant of aid then Estonia, so we can only guess to which country he refers. Reply to the comment answer

Surely you must have noticed the perfect propaganda techniques....the serious finger wagging at anyone else such as Holland (who actually are massive net contributors to the EU).

This presentation is as usual full of the usual mix of lies and propaganda.

If in doubt use the old KGB technique, show how BAD it is in the west..

...The west being anything beyond the Baltic-Polish border.

...our Scandinavian neighbours, we mustn't offend them, they are all virtue, so not a word of criticism about the UNREAL levels of double taxation illegally levied on EU good by Finland, or the completely crazy levels of duty levied on fuels and alcohol in Sweden. Reply to the comment answer

"There are two currencies in the world: money and votes. A politician cannot mix these things up. Bonuses are dangerous because they are swords that can cut your own feet."

People have money and if they perceive that their money is more safe as Bitcoins or some other currency they will convert their money, regardless of what the government does and wants or what they are elected to mandate for.

Therefore, votes are a worthless if you can't control a currency.

With cryptocurrencies on the rise (such si bitcoins), one can not even tax them.

I mean, demand of whom? Demand what? There are no records of who has which bitcoin, for instance.

See, governments have power because they control money. Once state-controlled money ends, votes become worthless also.

Therefore, votes are not a supplement to money, they depend on them. Reply to the comment answer
