    Technically, we don't speak English right. They started English, even the name English is derived from England.

    Look at the inscription on 'The Peace Arch' at the border crossing at Blaine, Washington. That's the U.S. side of the border and pretty much says it all;

    Even this isn't a clear thing.

    When the American Revolution started, the reason why they began revolting was because they wanted to exercise their rights as Englishmen. That is, they wanted to have a say in the government process of Parliament, by either having some seats allocated to them or by having their own American Parliament in which the British monarch remains head of state.

    But a radical faction of American colonists agitated for complete revolution, not just restoration of rights and privileges. And this faction eventually won out as hostilities increased.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    We have some common ancestors, but I think the US is a good deal more German in its ways and attitudes. The original people who went over there didn't like it here, and fought against their king to save their rich from paying taxes, which is a point of view, but not very British - and you are far more socially conformist, I think, than anyone much here.
