4. Umm! Because the US Constitution has no jurisdiction outside the USA????

But maybe you would want to impose our freedoms on the world? I think W said he was doing that in Iraq. So much for insisting that our Bill of Rights apply everywhere.

We do have the UN, which can be a cantankerous body, working both for and against USA so-called values. Of course, the Republicans think it is the source of the anti-Christ and -- horrors! -- world government who will take away everybody's guns and force is all into concentration camps policed by people in pale blue helmets.

Then, there's the countries already pissed off at us for nearly taking down the world's economy merely for the benefit of our top greedy assholes. (Not that they're doing much better -- thank you very little University of Chicago economics school and Ronald Reagan.)

So, I'd like to hear how we would accomplish this feat that you suggest.

So what could possibly go wrong with that plan?

Maybe we ought to learn by the government of Iceland, or the other Scandinavian countries. Or, Suomi? (Here known as Finland.) Those are the models I would prefer for a world government.

Certainly not that of the USA, in spite of our Bill of Rights. (Which, if you haven't been paying attention, has been under a significant repression over a few decades.)
