As long as they accepted the US Constitution as their governing law, I dont care what country decised to become a state --- for that matter, ai am ALL for a One World Governmen,t so long as it is under the government formed by the US Constitution.

One wonders why countries like France and Germany dont ask to be a state -- that way they might have some actual say in what we do. Its not like they arent willing to give up their sovereingty or anything.

If it's not the best thing for the United States, and I don't see how the creation of Oceania would be useful, there's no point in doing it.

Be much better if we could annex the english (sort of) part of Canada...if they get rid of their silly socialist burdens, first, of course.

I think you'd be hard pressed to push it onto the British public, its not something they'd easily be bound to. I for one prefer maintaining our own sovreignty for the time being.

Having said that...

That may not be bad idea...one of my fundamental problems with UK politics is a lack of an actual constitution and enshrined rights...although I think we'd have to create our own from scratch.

The United Kingdom already allowed itself to become an annex of the USA thanks to that arsehole Churchill.
Any further ties to that multi culti **** hole in the Atlantic would bring even further ruin upon the UK if such a thing were possible.

I already consider the UK to be the Fifty First state, however, do we have to let those damn Canadians and New Zealanders into the mix? I would rather see Poland come in seeing as they are part of the coalition of the willing and know how to show some gratitude for all the good the U.S. has done for Europe and the world.

Because the Canucks speak english, most of them are even more comprehensible that the Brits. Before we'd accept the Brits application, we'd need to teach them that a footpath is actually a side walk, and that a set of steps should be called a "step ladder". That, and they'd have to learn how to spell "color".

Let's face it, membership in the greatest society the earth has ever seen isn't something that should be granted lightly. I don't know if the Brits measure up. Maybe they could become a protectorate territory like Puerto Rico and Guam, first?

If we in the UK became part of the USA we might wind up with as little influence in Washington as the people of New Orleans.
Best maintain the status quo chaps ;)

The constituition would have to be in the equation but yeah, I wouldn't mind making a few comprimises to get some more states on board. The problem is that all of these friendly countries have [da daaaaaaaa] monarchies. Forming a greater union sounds like something we can achieve a consensus on, but getting rid of the royals is a whole other thing.

I really wish we would do something to even out the exchange rate between our two countries. When I went to the UK last December, the rate was 2 to 1, meaning that everything was twice as expensive for me. To get one British pound, I had to spend 2 American dollars. It really sucked cause there were a lot of things I wanted to buy at Harrod's in London but couldn't.

It was only a matter of time before the malice of the revolution cooled down, and the two countries could begin to identify with each other. We have similar culture, the U.S. is mostly English and western European genetically, and we speak the same language. We have so much in common, it's no wonder since WWI Great Britain and the U.S. have been close allies.

But there are rifts. Many of these rifts have faded over the last 250 years. Great Britain pretty much tossed their "riff raff" into their colonies. Anglo's in Australia were convicts, and those in a America were large made up of "surplus" population. They had little reason to be very loyal the crown.

America was also the place of functionality, they didn't have things "just because they are pretty," like the English or French. For instance they wouldn't have the traditional European gardens or hedges, they wouldn't even leave very many trees on their land, they used all the land they could for crops. This wasn't lancey dancey rich England any more, if you didn't work, you starved and you and your family died. Europeans didn't like the reality of it all, they were used to their well established farmlands and culture.

Americans were in no way rich after the revolution, America's richest had less money than many of England's (small) high middle class. And most didn't know how to maintain their money well, more than one of America's Forefathers died in relative poverty. In Europe everything was well established, and they had a very rich class.

Another part was that all Americans (who weren't lazy) had land, and this was more of a commodity in England (where they had little). Land was easy to get in America, just move west and it was really really cheap. An immigrant can work for a while, and then buy his own farm. The British envied this, of course, and it caused another rift.

Yet another rift would be the fact that the British repudiated African slavery, but gave little freedom to the common man. It was just the opposite in America, where slavery was practiced in the south, and white men had a representative government. It was very puritanical to believe in such institutions as democracy (for white men).

But as time went on British became more free for the white man, America for the black, land was eaten up in America and they started to settle into a more "lazy" -ish life style (not necessarily bad when only a little) much like the English way, and the countries were thrown together in WWI, and they've gotten along famously since then, and will continue to grow closer.

Another reason Britain might identify with the U.S. more than other European countries, is because it's an island state. It's always been more separated from Europe, and so it can identify with it's European descended cousin America, who is also separated from Europe. But this is slowly fading away, because transportation and communication lines are becoming easier to travel/use.

I have been to GB I love the people there and most of them feel the same way about the yanks. However, I do think there are many who dont want to be apart of america like Madonna:rofl . Also if they did become apart of america then I would like to extrapulate every single individual in the royal family as a regular individual. I dont like people who are of a kingship and are born into wealthyness. They need to work for everything just like everyone else. Right now the Gb gov pays for their wealthyness out of the expense of the English people which is absurd. I will be damed if my tax dollars goes to those snivling little worthless families. They should work in a steel mill as far as I see it. And those kids they should get a job instead of playing jockey all over the place. Whata waiste of good hard earned English money. I really feel sorry for you guys.

I actually wouldnt mind GB being apart of the US. I love you guys over there. And I thank you for all your hospitality when I visited there. It was some of the most memorable of moments and it was an experience I will never forget. Thank you

Where've you been? Hell, we could unify with Japan next week, and that whole deal was 10 times worse and happened but 60 years ago. You don't think that US vs. UK is old news?

Actually if you're talking about forming a larger union I would call Canada states 51-63 first.

I can admitt recently Europe has started to go out on it's own, being expressed through the European Union idea. But I also must point out that England is the furthest behind joining the European Union in western Europe (they did not join the EU monetary union).
