List Of Things Every European Country Is The “Worst” At – Slovakia: Lowest Voter Turnout

Won’t Vote

Some Slovaks are so adoringly pro-EU, fanatically so. It can be a challenge to get rationale reasons for EU adoration from such a person. The EU has naturally been positive in some ways and negative in others, with reasons differing based on individual perspective. That’s what I expect a reasonable person to have as the general groundwork of a discussion on the EU. If the person can’t utilize a framework like that, it is a good indication that the person is a pro-EU fanatic and that it’s best to turn to another topic.

At the same time, it is with great pride that I see Slovaks constantly ridiculing the European Union. The way this is done most effectively is in how Slovaks decide to use their time. “Talk is cheap” is an often used and generally accurate phrase. “Put your money where your mouth is” and “time is your most valuable commodity” are also often used and generally accurate in indicating money and time are more valuable ways of conveying personal preference.

So many popularly complain about McDonald’s, a chain I generally avoid, but the fact that it has $25.4 billion in annual worldwide revenue indicates that many people, as consumers, when forced to vote with their money show a strong preference for McDonald’s over the many other options for food. McDonald’s obviously does a superior job of giving the customer what the individual customer wants.
