EU Gets Even Uglier

The European Union has recently accepted Romania and Bulgaria as its newest partners in its efforts to… uh… hmmm… what exactly is the purpose of the European Union? Romania and Bulgaria are both extremely poor countries and will likely draw off of the more financially stable members of the EU. These two countries are also riddled with corruption, drugs and human trafficking into the sex industry. Adrian Morgan asks, What is the European Union Good For when he summarizes an article saying,
“While many think the EU will be a big help in stabilizing Iraq as the situation allows, the EU is nothing close to a super-power. As FSM Contributing Editor Adrian Morgan outlines, the EU came into existence artificially, and seems to specialize in creating thousands of unnecessary regulations. In fact, British citizens are now subject to 200,000 EU regulations, with 2,500 more added annually. Whereas the US has a set of values, all the EU can provide is a labyrinthine bureaucracy that would put Byzantium to shame. Do we need or even want their help?” (A. Morgan, Family Security Matters)
Without much knowledge of the EU, I must also ask, what is the purpose of the European Union and how is it effecting the Global Economy?
