The E.U. should be a United States of Europe. Nations should work together yet have control over their own laws and borders.

Well, first you have to understand the difference between the European Union and the United States. The United States is one country with individual states inside it that are subject to a supreme government in Washington D.C. The European Union is a collaboration between most European countries, and there is no central power, they meet and discuss things. But they do a fine job of maintaining peace, they don't need to become the United States of Europe. I don't think that would work out well. Germany and Italy and Greece all want to maintain their individuality, they don't want to serve under a singular power, they already had to deal with that with Hitler during World war 2. They're doing fine as it is, they don't need to change. And besides, what would it accomplish? They're keeping dictatorships like Mussolini's from uprising, everyone except stubborn old Britain has abandoned their monarchies and moved towards democracy, and the singular unit of currency, the Euro, has made international economics a lot easier. I mean, they're already cooperating. making them the United States of Europe would be pointless. You don't know what the European Union is, do you?

The term "United states of Europe" does not refer to a status in Europe exactly like America. The term is used to show that the nations of Europe should be united in attitudes and directions yet not united by law, each nations can have its own laws and own immigration status. This is really more closely related to the cantons of Switzerland rather than the states of America, perhaps Cantons of Europe would be a better term.

What makes you believe the Untied States is only a United State of Governed ground as territory, and not a legal boundary created as United State formed inside Constitutional law.
