Indeed, you MUST compare the EU with NAFTA.
Make much more sense.

These are ridiculous arguments, we all know that the US (which can be likened to the EU due to population and trade) is the only superpower, but fact remains that Americas influence is stagnating. No use arguing.

No one is denying that American influence is not at its peak but one must compare regional bloc to regional bloc and not regional bloc to country when making an economic argument.

As long as America overall as a country is richer than EU, of course the states in America will reflect that. Anything else would be impossible. The EU has also taken aboard several former communist countries. But the income is heavily concentrated towards the upper classes and elite in America, unlike in most of Europe. In America, corporations wield enormous power, and where the population dont have any real options in elections, a two-party system, which in effect is a one-party system, the Business Party. The difference between Democrats and Republicans are small. Even with a massive failure like the financial crisis, the people where unable to elect any real change. The same people who created the crisis where voted in with Obama.
