Do you think the EU as a superpower (if that can be accomplished) to be a good thing or a bad thing?

One thing that the last few years has brought out is a recognition of anti-american sentiment and competition that went largely ignored for years. Many people seem to think this is something new and W is the great Satan.

is everyone in the rest of the world going to honestly tell me that things would have gotten much better if kerry were elected president? if you think so, your level of ignorance on the american political system is showing. both candidates are just opposite sides of the corporation controlled coin...either way, things are going to continue in the same direction, like it or not

Well, as Chalmers Johnson says in The Sorrows of Empire, if China should decide one day that the euro is more valuable than the dollar and that therefore China's assets should be invested in the euro, then our stock market would crash and it would be a blow so devastating that we might not recover for a very long time--maybe never fully.

If the American economy crashes in such a manner, many other countries' economies will crash as well.

the idea of this thread is really extreme and almost humorous. I dont think Americans would let America fall. Bottom line....
Exactly how the Romans were saying near the beginning of the 2nd Century AD.

If the American economy goes into the tank, I think you know which country will immediately follow.

I'm well aware of that.

In fact, the world economy would collapse.

It would be a Second Dark Ages.
