Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It might have something to do with the fact that the US has not only reached its maximum geographical extent, but also is commands a decreasing fraction of the world's resources and power. As long as you're expanding you can absorb immigration more easily because there's less competition for the existing resources.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
