Because Europe is America's biggest bitch.
Seriously, I've asked around, and quite a few europeans feel this way about America.

"Needs more blowjob" would have made a perfect yearbook quote.

Well, if the Europe is willing to three-to-four times expand their military budgets, and have a two million standing army (and, of course, about ten times more of R&D programs), the USA would be perfectly willing to give the Europe a chance...
Till this time, hovewer, when european defense is for 3/4 based on US support...

"Oh, you guys need help? Don't you even worry about it!"
"But America, do you have the money to help?"
"I always have the money for my friends!" *wipes away a patriotic tear as a bald eagle shrieks somewhere in the distance*

We have a higher GDP per Capita then America but that dose not really matter, we still have a higher standard of living.

That depends on how you figure. Our small state has almost the GDP of your entire nation. Most European nations aren't even close per capita.
EU GDP per capita: $37,800 (2015 est.)
Norway: $68,400 (2015 est.)
US: $56,300 (2015 est.)
But really, we have houses bigger than some palaces, on larger tracts of land.
Gas is currently 48c/liter, and a half kilo of ribeye steak costs me less than 15 minutes income.
Certainly Norway has a better handle on poverty than parts of the US, but we have a third of a billion people on the third largest land area. It's hard to compare.
State by state, 16 states exceed Norway's GDP and at least that many exceed your standard of living.
I could compare, say, TX, to Europe as a whole including PIIGS and Macedonia, for example, but the scales aren't really compatible.

EU GDP 18514>>>does not include several countries.
EU is barely a ill arranged confederation, with tonnes of overlapping projects, and military capacities, with very small mobility of manpower, and small capital investement between nation states, among other problems.
USA GDP 17419, a Federation with the contrary situation of what was expressed above.
USA "true" national debt 70 trillion to 280 trillion (bankrupcy in the 70´s forgiven (cold war) by Western Europe and Japan)
EU public debt 12 trillion (US credit agencies eager to talk about this)
Still today many USA vehicles, and weapons, etc are developed by europeans, not to wonder that about 1/2 of the american scientist community is foreign, and 1/3 of all their Nobel prizes were in fact won by europeans.
If Europe was a Federation, USA would be left miles away, in nearly every aspect, in military matters, Europe would not pull a big gun, it would pull something like a repeating missile launcher, XD
