We Americans tend to prefer local control vs control by larger entities.

Granted when push comes to shove, the larger govt structure won (ie the American Civil War), but I think we reached a happy medium between large-scale efficiency and local control, and any significant movement to one side or the other would be detrimental to the country as a whole.

Europeans have had 300+ years of civil war, and still haven't got things settled. :) Seems their big continental governments keep getting defeated (Habsburgs, imperial France, the 3rd Reich, the USSR, etc). When do you think a strong Europoean central government will happen? The current incarnation looks something like what the US had under the Articles of Confederation, and we all know that did not work well for us.
