Norway is not a member of the European Union, and Norway is concidered (by the UN) to be the best country in the world to live in for the 5th time in a row. We do NOT need the European Union to take all of our oil, gas and fish.
We have gotten rich without the European Union. Our neighboor, Sweden, is going down every year, and so is Denmark. They are both in the European Union. Iceland and Switzerland, who are not in the Union as well, are doing well too.
By the way, the European Union is not military, they will not support each other any more than anyone else.
