Actually, people here have other things to think about, it is not even a topic here as far as I can tell from the media.

That may be wishful thinking on your part, but far from reality, despite Greece. The rest of Europe is recuperating and will be doing fine again. We have had crises long before the US even existed, and we have survived all of them. We are the prototypical phoenix rising from the ashes

I am not surprised that Europeans do not understand the Commerce Clause. I am much more surprised my fellow Americans are so ill informed.

Lol, your Phoenix is being weighed down by Portugal, Ireland, Italy, and Spain, as well as Greece.

Easy to see why most of the world think we're a bunch of dumbasses. And of course, we wouldn't be tipping our hand as to how stupid we are already by dropping billions on European defense while they spend their money on social programs. Nah...it took the heath care issue for them to realize what idiots we are if you're stupid enough to believe that.

Euroweenies? Right. The real fools are on this side of the ocean, not the other side.
If one considers that we are the foolish and the Europeans are the superior, would one not consider themselves foolish for continueing to live amongst US

America's debt is way higher than the EU's debt. So it doesn't matter who runs this country. America is on a death march.

Next year America will either be run by a big government democrat or a big government republican. It doesn't matter who you vote for.

Take a look at the bigger picture: Just since the year 1800 Greece went officially broke six times, just like Portugal. Germany and Austria went broke 7 times each, Spain 8 times, and so on.
