Default 5 More years of Opression?

So,

After hundreds of millions spent on elections and countless tabs picked up in the fanciest of Belgian restraunts we will have 5 more years of German dominated politics in tye EU as Ursula Von Der Leyen , German MoD has got the formal nomination for EU council President

Is this even democracy if the same country keep winning??

Is lobbyism a problem in the EU as much as it is in the US? Like back room deals and handshakes from big money folks? I don't know much about the EU besides the leadership always being German.

The guy before junker was portuguese. And the current president of the council is polish.

I'm not saying germany and france dont have the most influence over the EU behind the scenes, but as far as figureheads I think this is the first time there's a german president of either the commission or council

Your actually right. I hold my hands up there and i did think Juncker was German. My actualy frustration however is that were appointing leaders from the most powerful country in the superstate and this is bad.

Germany in particular has been less than kind to the states that suffered most during the economic crash and were allowed to get away with it because initially they were very small (Greece, Ireland, Romania) until the Italians got into trouble and then people started to notice that bailing out countries at high rates of interest within their own federal state is not a virtous business.
