Or we could cling onto our pathetic 'nation states' and remain the US and China's bitch.
But by the way the EU political system makes about 50% of the laws of the countries in the union. The whole european political structure is governed by the "european commission" which is not even elected: what a great lesson of european democracy. Lets look at our problems before we laugh at the US elections. Please!
In reality the European Union is a Franco-German dictatorship in which the United Kingdom disagrees with/vetoes/opts out of 99% of the laws and the other member states have virtually no say in matters, even if they directly concern them.
The European Union is still a great concept though and if countries put aside their slight differences, focusing on their many similarities and also drop superficial arguments out loss of sovereignty then the EU will work and will be great.
