    I think they'll sink..why?..too much diversity..
    Same reason the US is in decline IMO.

    I agree. Nobody seems to think it enough to be American anymore, now ya gotta be African-American, Latino-American, Chinese-American, Japanese-American, Korean-American, Italian-American, Irish-American, Russian-American, Arab-American, etc.

    Perhaps diversity was the wrong term, too broad.
    Then again I think it fits well, for the social, cultural and economic
    differences in the EU. We see it here too, just not on the same scale....
    As the article points out, Not Yet.

    The good news is we do have a common Constitution and economy that
    binds us together...Lose either and like the EU, we're toast.
