"We would end up being pompous and believing the sun never sets on our empire."

Nowt to do with being pompous Ron, just a statement of fact. The East/West spread of the empire was so great that there was always some portion of it in the daylight half of the globe.

Just messing with the Brits Don! I was trying to use that "irony" thing that they accuse us of lacking!!! :)

In all seriousness, we all tend to make generalization and use terms (Limey, Yank) that without meaning to can be derogatory.   Most countries and its citizens have a sense of self-importance that comes along with ethnocentric bias.   Some of the comments are Brit friends make at our expense seems to have roots in their own culture. I guess it isn't easy for any of us to look at ourselves which is why we tend to make comments about others.

Well, to me, there is no "IF". We won the revolution for a reason,I mean things happen for reasons, and personaly I wouldn't dwell about things in the past-er-I mean you shouldn't question things like that, like I said, it happend for a reason, we were supposed to become a great country of our own. Now if you want to question something that's worth questioning, ask something like this "when the United States closed the border to mexico, and all the mexicans got mad, don't you think Mexico would have done the same if "TO MANY" U.S citizens were flocking,or illegaly going to mexico, like they were doing to us?

Yes, Ryan, but if that were the case then you would probably be trying to get into Mexico right now... ;-)

Ryan,

It didn't happen "for a reason" Washington got lucky and won some battles that were pretty close. If the British had won, that would have been "for a reason too" but things wouldn't be all that different.

The Mexicans come across the border because the fat cats with money want them to. And whether those fat cats live in Washington or London or Austin or Crawford doesn't make much difference to ordinary people.
