no country would break from the EU, its too much of an asset. if you break from it you are cutting yourself off from 24 other different markets, when it comes to business. but the reason for the EU isnt protection, its all about business and making trade and travel easier for everyone and develop economies. but not protection, if you mean as in military. the EU doesnt yet have a military or a policy for protecting other EU countries in that way.

because i am extremly patriotic to Ireland and love my country so much. the thoughts of it becoming a federal state just really sickens me. i want ireland to remain always a seperate country at all times, and never become a federal state.
