I say colony only due to the fact that as trading partners your laws are almost identical to ours, and are changed to fit our trading laws.

Especially when it comes to this intellectual property crapola of patents and copyrights.

Europeans don't even have the balls to admit it.
(i.e. They don't have software patents, but the issue them anyway, even though the population doesn't want them.)

Just to make the Empire of the USA happy.

So, in affect economically, yes you are a colony of ours.

Be a nice European colony too and institute "Software Patents for 1000 years.", or we just might do some "regime" changes.

I almost expected that you meant it that way. Yes, you're right, the US dictate a lot upon Europe, and yes, Europeans don't have the balls to admit it or even become a bit more independent... although I don't think a "regime change" would be possible in Europe - too much bad reputation. You'd just issue some economic pressure and we're f*cked ;)
