American Union

I fully endorse this blog post.

Unfortunately, history suggests that the reverse will happen.  Our country was originally designed as a federation, a collection of independent states that shared a common court system, currency, and military, much like the EU is today.  But over time, the states lost power and the central government gained it.  In a couple hundred years, it is likely that the EU will look like we do today and we will have but a few remnants of state identity.
