John Howard, Australia and the United States

I keep wondering when John Howard will go to the next logical step?

First we became the deputy sheriff for the US in Asia, then we went to war by their side in Afghanistan and Iraq, now we are making a free trade agreement with them.

Surely the next logical step is Australia becoming a US state. Perhaps then we could remove some layers of government here?

For example, we could abolish the state governments and turn the Australian federal government into another US state government. It’s not such a silly idea really!
