I was reading through the quotes of George Washington and I came across a rather strange quote.
"Some day, following the example of the United States of America, there will be a United States of Europe. "
Now this could have just been a good guess on his part, but did he see something that we did not? Currently there is no United States of Europe, but if our current pattern continues it could be a possability. Of course Europe would have their own style of government and politics but would it really be modeled after the American government?
I just thought this quote seemed a little odd.

If the United States government works out well enough, then it's very possible that Europe will model its government after America's. It's equally possible that, if America's government fails, we will model ours after Europe's. Every government builds upon the old one, or it least allies itself with the old one. With organizations like the UN, a "United States of Europe" is more likely than ever. It's this kind of thing that could eventually lead us to the a One World Government.
What you are saying makes no sense. Europe will model its government after America's? Europe doesn't have a government. Europe is a continent made up of many different countries with different governments. The EU is a financial government and not a political one. Europe is entirely too divided politically and culturally to ever have a unified government. Never gonna happen.
