Ok I think this guy is just paraniod, if the EU was going to turn into a massive country then that might require it first to disolve all the other governments INSIDE the EU...
I've long compared the evolution of America's federal government to the EU. I see it more as a matter of when, rather than if at this point. They've already established a single currency, a combined defense force, and open borders. They already aim for a common language.
He's paranoid, but how many people around these forums claim America is on the way to a dictatorship because of Bush?
Very little time on these forums is spent discussing the faults of Europe, in spite of the fact that there are numerous Europeans around...
That single currency isnt adopted by all the members, that combined defence force is little more than a small version of nato and open borders doesnt mean the checkpoints are not there.
I would agree and disagree, most of it seems to be focused on anti west, anti capatilist and anthing that is "bad" , but heh thats just my opinion.
You want us to discuss faults of europe just ask.
The currency will be accepted by all, and the military force WILL grow

Does anyone know how weak the American government was for decades? It wasn't really until the Civil War era that the Federal government really had more power then the states.
The currency will be accepted by all, and the military force WILL grow. Both are almost given at this point. You honestly don't think so? The borders will only continue to open up more as the economies and cultures become more closely tied.
The EU won't become a single state overnight. It'll be a gradual process. If there were to be some huge event, like another world war, it could very well speed up the process.
I've asked plenty. When they come up, topics are ignored or people simply can't stop bringing America into the equation.
