Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

All that was after the debacle of the "The United States in Congress Assembled" under the 1781 Articles of Confederation.  As soon as the elites realized their $100 government bonds were only worth $20 because people thought the government would never pay back the original face value the current constitution was quickly written and passed.  

Moral:  get the bankers and elites deeply invested in worthless EU bonds and "an ever closer Union" will come lickety-split.
