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.

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.

Why US?

Why not make every country a part of, say, Iceland. That'd be much better, we could all say we're from the same country as Björk.

If Iceland asked every country in the world to be a part of it, not many would join. However, the United States is the world's only superpower... so... countries would want to join us because, they, would become a superpower.

It would never work. Even in this high tech age, there are places on earth that are too remote and too primitive to be under the control of a nation whose capital is 2,000+ miles away. And there would always be people who would want to make their regions into countries, I'm sure their would be. Just look at the pressure in Isreal right now!

I like the idea of a unified global leadership, but your reasons are not good. Your arguments focus solely on the Military budget and management, but that is one of the minor issues. A better plan would probably be to form a cooperative government for all involved nations- a Congress or some Legislation Body, with representatives for former nations, who represent their interests to manage the former Nations collectively.

- Every 3rd world country we bring in would be too poor to be taxed, meaning we would either have to lower welfare SIGNIFICANTLY, basically eliminating it, or we would have to have our taxes literally go to the income of the population of an entire state. And that's just for one state. If we bring in Somalia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, etc... Forget that, man. We'd be paying millions in taxes just to keep those people alive. Or you know, we'd lower welfare so low that few citizens currently living in the U.S would qualify. Good job.

- We would gain their military? Wooo! That's great. After all, we know just how huge, threatening, successful, organized, and powerful the military in 3rd world countries are, right?

- It would not be easy as cake. But you saying that doesn't surprise me as you are just ignorant to basically everything. So that's a freebie.

- It wouldn't reduce the world wide military budget. That's a moronic thing to say. Because you see, we are one of the best military's in the world. We bring in the military of 3rd world countries? They adopt OUR style and OUR way of doing things. Meaning they are not spending more. There are more people spending more but somehow this equals spending less? Don't think so.

- We don't need to be the world's only superpower. Kid, something tells me you've never taken a history class or heard the expression about flying too close to the sun.

The idea of uniting countries around the world is great, in theory. However history has taught us that someone always gets run over. While some of the smaller, weaker nations may have little doubt about joining another stronger nation for protection, others would rather remain separate. It's the issue of cultures being wiped out and corrupt leaders taking advatange of what should be a mutually-beneficial situation. If uniting countries wasn't a good idea then the UN would not exist but I think that's as far as people can go when it comes to that idea. No one wants another country making decisions for them. Also, the idea of the whole world becoming the United States is frightening. One country having that much power will never be a good idea for many reasons.

The idea was to gain some countries so we could reduce the world-wide military budget significantly.

That makes no sense. If we gained the countries with lesser military forces, we will be spending more to improve their military therefore RAISING the military budget.

I would actively REDUCE the military budget to get to our current levels. Basically, after each country we gain, we would reduce the budget accordingly.

Well I like the concept of one global country, it would tear down at least some cultural walls between humanity (seriously, culture is overrated, especially when people preach we should be preserving cultures that are outdated and barbaric).
But I can't see it happening, and if it did the only fair way of going about it is to make the new global country an entirely new one. That means even the name doesn't contain part of any pre-existing country's name. The laws would have to be re-written based on the majority rules opinion of all smaller countries that wish to fuse together. It seems a bit pretentious for the new super-country to be labelled as a growth on the back of the US and thus must follow the same laws/culture etc (even though I would be fine with it, the US isn't radically different to Australia anyway so I wouldn't have much adjusting to do except for getting used to the stupid Imperial system :p) But try explaining this concept to someone in the middle east who truly believes everything about the US is the ultimate evil :hmm: It won't go down so well everywhere.

The fact is that the world's different countries are really not much different than "states" anyway. The laws and culture of states within the same country can vary, which always struck me as odd as someone who believes that any one country should have the same rules apply throughout its entire landmass (seriously, an imaginary line making something illegal on one side and perfectly fine a few feet away in the same country is stupid :disbelief:) So even if most or all countries forged into one global one - we'd still have these issues of cultural clashes and superiority complexes the world over like we do now :fight:
