AMERICAN WOMAN SERIES - DIVERSE UNIVERSE EUROPEAN TOUR - 2010

I, an American woman, have come to Europe to propose a union made through love of our two nations, The United States of America and the European Union.

Europe is a beautiful place, great people, many and diverse cultures, a clean environment and it's big. I would like to live here, but I am an American – and I like being an American. So, I propose that the United States and the European Union join forces to create a new country: The United States of Europe and America – a country that starts at the Pacific border of the USA and extends eastward across the Atlantic Ocean and through to Russia!

When Europe becomes American, it will mean you can pay far less taxes, welcome extremism in religious beliefs and stop spending so much money on health care, education and infrastructure. You can be cowboys with a Puritan work ethic, which fosters genius in rock and roll and creative economic initiatives.
