    Gee, and I teach my students that it is called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, which about a country ago was called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and before the Act of Union......

    As for national power, the UK and France are not in the same league as the US, Russia and China...

    Don't listen to Albert on this. This statement most certainly is not true...

    Yes, my Liberal thinking places me in the minority.

    Being born in a "foreign nation" should never place a man at an disadvantage, not any more so than being born in Arizona or South Carolina.
    Its where and how well one is raised that matters.

    Not really, the European Union is the world's number one economy...for whatever that is worth..
    England and France are more or less meshed parts. England has rust on its gear teeth.
    But, then we have Arizona and South Carolina; and look at how small Russia has become, and China, what do we really know abort China ?
    Language is the great unifier, we used to have but one, China and Europe have a great many.

    As long as they are naturalized citizens of those countries, I guess the nobility article of the Constitution would force them to renounce US citizenship in some cases, I don't care. That's up to the other country. In fact Éamon de Valera, one of Ireland's presidents and dominating political figures was born in the US.

    But the Eu is still far from a unified power.

    I know quite a lot about China, but I am very concerned by what I see coming from over there...

    As for languages in China, most of the local languages are dying or even approaching moribund status. The government has forced Mandarin on nearly the entire country. Only Cantonese and Shanghainese are robust among the "Han" people and even some of the minority langauges (i.e. Manchurian and Zhuang) are either dead or dying...

    The UK and France, seperately, and even without the gridwork of the EU, are still two of the most powerful nations on Earth, militarily, politically and economically. It's a fact, mate. Check wikipedia some time.
