Subject: RE: BS: What if We had Lost The Revolution ?
We would have treated the Native Americans better? Kind of like the native Irish got treated? I don't think so.

With all due respect to my British friends, the Revolution didn't start because your Monarchy and Government were just a bunch of great but misunderstood folks. I surely don't have a problem with not bashing England, but one only needs look at the colonial policies of the Empire around the world to understand how it would have went.

To be honest, I sometimes tire of how it seems fine to point out every wart of the US, but doing the same to others doesn't fly. Great Britain has a historical track record around the world. If we had lost the revolution, we would have been treated as traitors and the repression would have been of the type designed to deal with traitors.
