The problem with trying to built a super power with a collection of countries. They all have identity and when things go wrong they all look for a door to run. Well if you cannot stand the heat get out of the kitchen. If you go back and read My notes you will understand that I predicted this when Europe decided to try to built a Super Power a la Russian by a collection of countries. the Russian tried it later they all run out the door when there was problems. The U. S. is not a collection of countries as the result so far remain the only super power. Not bad at all for a country that didnt existe 283 years ago. Then, I predicted the U.S. will remain the same China will improve and Europe will have problems trying to built a super power a la Russian. History repeats it self. My only hope at this point things do not get too far down. My 401k is too important to My futur.
