Go for Tsipras.

Or, as Mark Twain said: If voting made any difference, we wouldn't he allowed to do it.

I always vote, but have absolutely zero expectations if the guy I vote for actually getting anywhere. Latest is Thierry Henri Philippe Baudet...look him up.

well, you've been all very helpful, I really wanted to talk about it it seems it was not just keeping things busy in the forums

 

I decided NOT TO VOTE, I won't go, I will probably never again use this undemocratic right of theirs that is so vile and makes me so squeamish I'd rather shoot myself with a revolver. 

my country exists only in my dreams, in my dreams I can vote. this country I do not recognize anymore. even the EU looks more of a country for me than this fucked up place.

A sense of belonging is what we all want. It's why echo chambers exist online, people surround themselves with people like them, which is understandable as its more comfortable. Britain is in the situation it is today because so many people dreamed of and wanted to get their national identity back. The problem is we rarely get what we want. Our hopes and dreams are best kept as hopes and dreams mostly as the reality rarely meets expectations. 

Politicians can appeal to people who are desperately in need of something else or something better but when did any government really fulfil the promises they made at the election campaign to their people? Politicians use the people to get power then use that power for their own agenda. it doesn't matter whether they are left or right wing. 

All you can do is try to live the most contented life, for yourself you can, in spite of the world.

Regardless of whether the UK is in the EU or not, The Brits will never lose their national identity, you have to be blind not to see that.

Neither will the:

French

Germans

Spanish

Portuguese

Swedish

Dutch

Belgians

Polish etc . . . . . lose theirs 

The EU is a colony of cultures and that is what makes it so rich and unique  regardless of "Bruxelles zizis"

of course no national identity will be lost, sovereignty to govern yourself is the big issue. there must be a limit in all reforms the colony of cultures you belong tries on its nations.
