RE: Why do people think the US should be Just like Europe
Well I'm not sure I understand the angst - but then I really don't see Americans trying to copy those in Europe. But - if there are fantastic things in Europe that Americans are starting to trend towards then that couldn't possibly be a bad thing.

RE: Why do people think the US should be Just like Europe
Europe is 20 times better than US.

1. A variety of different cultures and languages, that really are unique, unlike America like you say. You could be in France ordering a croissant in French, an hour later you are ordering Schnitzel in German. Not to mention castles, the Roman Empire etc.
2. The EU. Go to any country you want, when you want. High speed trains span the continent so travelling is really easy. Not to mention the economic benefits of course. Every time I travel abroad in Europe, all I need is my passport.
3. More tolerant of religion and homosexuality.

Europe is like one big happy family. Two world wars has taken its toll.

Who, exactly, is saying we should be exactly like Europe?

There are aspects of certain governments that function better than others, and hence there will be comparisons. Sometimes its not a bad thing to look to others for solution ideas when we don't have a functional one.
