Based on the age of the EU I wouldnt be surprised if it didnt dissolve altogether eventually considering the diverse nationalities and political systems involved. I just dont get how the US became part of the EU conversation as we have enough problems at home and should be more concerned about our own borders and why they are so strict and why NAFTA failed America.
The EU is not NAFTA, at least not at this stage. It outgrew its NAFTA stage in '79. Now more laws are made in Strasbourg (seat of the European Parliament) than in the national parliaments. And expect the first elected EU prezz within the next 15 years.
