Goofy thought.

The EU has been evolving into the United States of Europe and more than one EUer has stated they'd more than happy with cutting and pasting the original US Constitution for themselves. Sooo...

WI: the US sets itself up to conduct an EU style soft power expansion. Nations, who want to apply, not coerced, are admitted to be states. They go through a multistage transition period of aid and reform like the EU does with its new participants. The US has gone through and solved a large number of what the Euros are having problems with (Large state vs small state balance issues, how federal to be, etc).

We become the United States of the Americas...

Interesting. Interesting, but daft, I'm sure. It would make Canadians nervous again. ;)
