Should the U.S. allow the European union to break up?
The European union started in 1992 since then it has grown
very large with a combined economy or GDP of
16 trillion dollars. Germany
the largest of them with a GDP of around 6
Trillion seems to be not only the largest but also the nation with the
healthiest economy. Many Americans do not feel any loyalty to Europe
however; I beg to differ in this opinion. If it had not been for Europe,
our nation would not be here. France
and Spain both
helped us during the revolutionary war and this Americans should never forget.
Skipping way ahead to the Roosevelt administration both
nations stayed friends with the United States
even after Roosevelt helped the decolonization of many
territories belonging to these nations. I understand why Roosevelt wanted
Democracy for the world, what he did not understand was that some nations are
just not ready for Democracy and some of those nations when on their own did
not do very well and to this day are not doing well at all, like Mexico for
example and many South American nations. During WW2, the English and many other
European nations were a great help to the USA
in beating a hostile war like nation, which as you know, was Nazi Germany at
the time. Our nation is a result of the trials and errors of Europe.
Our Judicial System our unions and our civil rights laws are based on the best
of Europe's laws and economic ideology. The Statue of
liberty was given to us by France,
as a symbol of justice for all and freedom for all. Europe
now needs America
to keep from falling. Europe does not need Americans to say,
"Hey you were to generous to your people so you deserve what you got".
They may very well be to liberalistic for many of us to take seriously or to
want to help, but as in life as it is many times in foreign affairs, even
though you may not agree with a friend you still must be a friend when the time
comes that a friend is needed. What Europe was and is
trying to do, is noble in my eyes. You cannot turn your back on someone or in this
case a continental entity that is so pro worker and or pro individual. The
highest quality goods have come out of Europe for many
years with a happy common man or worker and the loss or even the temporary loss
of these countries economies to me will lead to the domino affect for us and
many other countries around the world.
If Europe still had its old territories less the United States it may not be in this situation today.
The European union consists of 27 nations and needs a monetary infusion of 3 trillion dollars to survive.
If Europe fails the USA and the world may follow.
