There is also Spain and Greece.

Yes but both of those countries had absolute monarchs for many centuries prior as did many others. Hardly a strong cultural foundation for democratic rule.
Not part of the EU but Russia also fits my hypothesis after thinking about it a bit more I also include members of the Ottoman empire and the Austro-Hungarian empire.
LOL we are coming up with enough examples to advance my hypothesis to theory status.

So why did all the EU countries sign up for that?!

Gary that is not what it was when the EU was created, it morphed into what it is.
A hypothesis I have is many of the members of the EU do not have a long legacy of democratic rule so autocratic rule seems natural to them, hence the ease of it's implementation.

So if we were to control crazies, aren't mass shootings automatically controlled?

Not here, the gun rights are more important than lives.

That's the point, our forefathers did vote for a federal government and the USA wouldn't even have 13 states without that government. It almost didn't happen. All thirteen states had to compromise their wants and desires to come up with a constitution that gave all of them a reason to sign up. IMHO England stood to gain more by being a member of the EU than they can ever achieve standing alone. The English empire is long gone and will never return.

An important difference as I understand it is here in the US we can vote the scoundrels out of office and elect new ones to change the law, in the EU that is not possible as I see it.

If Gary Johnson can get a few bucks to get some advertising "Can't stand Clinton, Can't stand Drumpf, Vote Gary Johnson" on TV he might just suck off enough votes to throw the election to the house.

Gary you know this country is not comfortable with 3rd parties.
