United States of the World

What do you think about this idea?

Asking every country in the world if they want to be apart of the United States. It would be a big plus for any third world country because we would improve them.

Plus, we would gain their military.

I wouldn't use it though. Just get rid of a certain amount of BOTH militaries so that the United States' military budget is equal to that of the rest of the world, like it already is.

And, it would be easy as cake, by just making their country a, 51st and beyond, one of our states.

The main reason I thought of this idea was that it would reduce the world wide military budget overall.

More states, less military, and we remain the world's only superpower.

I fear a larger USA would only make things worse. Many republican states and rural areas are already being ignored, jobs are being taken over by illegal aliens, and the economy is not getting any better. My solution would be to downsize, not to become larger. I believe that becoming smaller would help the manageability of the states and their polar opposite opinions.

us of the world, sounds too much like forcing one world (religion, money, etc) I don't ever see it happening since so many countries have their own method of living and the way the usa is at the moment I don't know if other countries like the ideas of being a part of "this". inheriting a mess sounds more troublesome than helpful to any country. I am not so certain I want to gain this mess anyways if I was another country. there would be a lot of discussion coming about to be more tolerate of people's cultures, religions, way of life, etc. before this could even be considered.

The USA is a first-world country. Do you know how many third and second world countries there are. Name one of them that wouldn't want to join us for the possibility of being with one of the greatest civilizations in history.

First of all; the idea of ONE government for the entire world is terrifying and things could go out of balance very quickly.

Secondly, I'm norwegian and I can say for sure that we are MUCH better off without you guys. Go start a war or something, we're good.

Yeah, it would be like the World State from Brave New World.

Go start a war or something, we're good.

That was rude and uncalled for.

Who said there would be ONE government? That's impossible. Only a handful of countries would join us.

Well, empires all fail. So, if USA became USW then that will fall really fast because there would be way too many disagreements. I want be surprised if USA falls soon, though, since it is an empire.

The only word to describe that would be fiasco.

Empires have a history of messy self destruction.
