Don't think I'm some kind of nationalist who wants to see the EU fall. I'm saying that it's being pulled apart by "leave" movements across its member states and I have yet to see any reason to think that the EU can counter these growing movements. I don't know why you don't understand what I'm saying and think instead that I'm talking of magic solutions. I'm asking, "Why should I think the EU can hold its ground against growing anti-EU movements in Poland, Hungary, France, Italy, and elsewhere all at once?" I still don't see the relevance of your continued references to current US dysfunction here. The US isn't at risk of fragmenting into its component states, while the EU is. That's my whole point.
