  • Absolutely! Europe is the future!

    America is failing at its prime goals: freedom and equality. As Europe has free colleges for students, America is trapping an entire generation in inescapable debt. While Europe has single-payer universal healthcare, America has the insurance-company-heaven Obamacare that puts rates and premiums through the roof while lowering coverage. While Europe has converted to metric like every other country and is trading with ease, America is crashing satellites because of Metric-American Unit conversions. Most European nations also have longer life expectancy than the US.

  • USA is in decline under its current model, following Europe could help it transition

    Imagine a peaceful American people without guns, well looked after by a healthcare and social security system that was free for all. America cannot compete for military supremacy with china in the future, as in past it has never competed with a country with a bigger economy than it. Fact is that China's economy could theoretically become three times bigger than Americas given their population. Ironically, that is the same number of times bigger than USA was compared to the USSR. Europe does not have much of a military, but it's "soft power" is simply enormous. That makes it powerful without all of the fallbacks of the whole world hating you.

  • Yes We Can Become Like Europe

    So much patriotism here. You guys need to stop measuring quality of life based on disposable income and look at other economic factors. The US isn't as great as it used to be. The European countries all have higher social mobility than the US and other important factors, such as access to cheap college education and health care that is not going to debt cripple their citizens. The US, like any other place, definitely need improvements.

  • The U.S. Becoming More Like Europe is Absurd

    Instead of thinking that the U.S. should become more like Europe one should place more effort in making the U.S. a better place without shadowing another country. To feel that Europe may be a better place places a strong statement concerning the U.S. If the U.S. needs fixing then look at the faulty areas and fix them without trying to become something we will never be.

  • Why not move to Europe

    Europe is a great place to visit, the people are nice and have stories to tell and the food is something to experience. While adapting our diet to be more like other countries where we eat more fresh/home-grown foods is a good idea, moving our economy to be more socialist such as many countries in Europe is a bad idea. Spreading the wealth, making college free to all students will cause the national debt to rise. As the debt continues higher, the liability of every taxpayer is also rising. The change in the amount of the federal debt per taxpayer from 2004 to 2015 represents an average annual increase of 7.16%. This is much more than the average annual wage increase during the same period.
    What could possibly go wrong? With the debt per taxpayer as high as it is, if the government continues to raising taxes on the middle class and above, it will soon become impossible for many to preserve their standard of living. We could soon see a reduction in wealth that will encompass just about everyone. This is already the reason why the middle class is shrinking. In a socialist society, you either have the elite of the working class. If folks like Europe so much, why not move there?

  • No, the European economic system is failing before our eyes.

    Even though the USA needs to make some alterations and become more effective with their spending, The USA economy is growing far stronger than Europe. Europe is still in recession from 2008 our economy has grown from 16 to 18 trillion since 2008, not much but far better shape than the Europeans. European population is also receding, when that happens you get cities like Detroit and Chicago. The American system make more self sufficient population. Europeans would rather destroy their own countries than get rid of the very socialist programs destroying their country to the point not one European country will increase military spending to combat Putin, they are weak and Russia Knows it

  • No. We've already got enough communists and atheists in America, so why would we push for more.

    America is the undisputed leader of the free world. We blaze the trails for the future and other nations follow. We create a system that gives opportunity for those who want to live the American dream, and punish those who are lazy and stupid. Europe does not. Europe accepts everyone, including those who will bankrupt their system. I would rather immigrate to somewhere else than see America become Europe.

  • Definitely not

    America should stay the way it is. The reason most Europeans migrated from Europe is because they did not like the system or the way things are run. This is what make the U.S a great country. The free market and it's uniqueness. George Washington has also mentioned that the U.S should not intervene with Europe or else it will fall.

  • No, we should be like ourselves

    In what way should be try and be like Europe? Don't we have our own minds? Europe has some amazing qualities, as does Asia and the Americas. We should try and be like ourselves, and take into account any aspects of life and culture from other areas that we like. There's no need to completely imitate any other country or region completely. We can figure things out for ourselves, thank you.

  • We Set The Standard, We Do Not Imitate

    Europe is a great country but I do not think that the United States should try to be more like them. We have our own identity and it should stay that way. I have no problem with using a few of their traditions or inventions, but that's where it stops.
