I love the stream of non sequitur that you get over this topic. It's like saying "well you have cancer, so sure you must be happy to get AIDS too?"

But to answer your first point, you can vote governments in and out cannot do the same for EU Commissioners.
The thing is, you cannot have that duality and have it functional, imho. EU blames individual govs for stuff the EU was supposed to be held accountable for. Individual govs blame the EU for stuff that they should be held accountable for. The result is worse than if we were just a bunch of autonomous states.

Within one country - it works. Provinces, cantons, even with large degree of autonomy there is a hierarchy of responsibilities. CH is a great example of a functioning federation.
