The European Union already has some characteristics of a US-like government. Would you be a supporter of the European Union (and more) turning into one country, giving existing countries the status of a US state?

A lot goes into forming a US like nation. The EU isn't there yet. I don't think the people of Europe may get there in my lifetime. There is no Europe wide nationalism which is necessary to get the people behind it. People are french or Greek, not European. In the USA we are Americans first, Texans and califorians second. Something bad happens in Florida and the entire nation is on standby to back them up. The federal budget largely comes from the rich states, with welfare mostly going to the poor states, but the other EU member states don't see the Greek or Spanish people as part of their country in the same way the people of West Virginia are Americans the same as someone in downtown Manhattan, and are free to move from one state to the other without permission from anyone.1
