E Pluribus Imperium by YNot1989 E Pluribus Imperium by YNot1989
Warning ASB ahead:

2012: The Euro finally collapses as the European debt crisis consumes the continent. Riots consume Europe's major cities, and several governments begin to collapse. President Obama orders US troops stationed in European bases to put down the mobs.

2013: Pro-Democracy protesters in Saudi Arabia go violent after the government, bleeding money with diminishing oil reserves, abolishes the year old Food Price Controls leaving the many in starvation. The US deploys its forces in the country to secure the capitol.

2014: After months of deadlock made only worse by record low approval ratings, the US Congress fails to pass a budget for FY 2015. With the European stability still in question, and forces stretched thin, the President signs an emergency budget, WITHOUT Congressional approval. Despite an outcry from Congressmen and Senators, American administrative officials follow the President's budget to the T.

2017: The 28th 29th and 30th Amendments are passed by state special conventions. The new amendments do the following: The US Congress is abolished and legislative powers are shifted over to electronic voting; Presidential Term Limits are removed; private corporations are defined to not have the same rights as individual citizens.

2018: The House and Senate chambers are converted to hold a large network of computers to handle all legislative and administrative matters. After votes are tallied the system recommends the appropriate tax to be levied to best serve the country's interests.

2020: The President signs the Pax Americana Act, officially annexing all territory with US military bases. The same year the US engages in a number of wars to unify North America.

2041: The long standing cold war with the BRIC nations continues, but the American Empire stands virtually untouchable. With its navy outfitted with Railguns, unmanned drones and traditional nuclear ordinance, all shielded by ground, sea and space based laser arrays, little can be done to counter the American Empire.

... silly I know, but I had an argument with this gal on DA today whose either spoke the worst English ever or had the crappiest translator program I've ever seen, and kept accusing me of being some kind of tyrannical monster because I made the case that civilian casualties in war are unavoidable while tragic. Also I just wanted to see how an actual American Empire as we are so often portrayed would actually rise to power... short of us all loosing our collective minds this is this has the least amount of holes I think.

If you really think about it-Doesn't this map exist today? (2014)
Until Europe can truly become the "United States of Europe": It will remain weak or most likely, it may soon become controlled from Berlin as a powerful Germany reemerges. Most of Asia outside China depend on The United States for their defense from an ever growing China and unstable Russia. The Americans have a quasi control over the Middle East today simple for the fact that it would never let Russia nor China control the flow of oil from this area-The same rule goes from the northern countries of South America. I think most of Africa would be a dependent of the Empire for stability reasons.

Unlike the British Empire-Common Americans won't think of it as an "Empire" as the idea of imperialism is look as something that is "bad"....
