Most of us had democracy well before the US was even thought about.

Without the French system of law and government and that of the British, their would not be much to base things on.

If the world has learnt anything from the American form of government, it's that it is totally fucked, it's a two party system that is rapidly failing.

That can be seen from the latest election where both candidates were equally loathed and show how much the system is failing.
European countries and the US are republics and not a democracy. Democracy pretty much means mob rule.

Again, bollox.

How is Americans do not have a clue about Europe.

You see it time and time again.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List...litical_system

Not all European countries are republics, we have constitutional monarchy.

We did try something like a republic back in 1649 (until 1660) decided we did not like it and returned to more monarchy, House of Lords and Parliament form of government.

Spain is similar, as is Sweden, the remainder are divided between types of republic government, with a good chunk not following the American system at all, other than using the term republic.

I suspect the majority of our colonial cousins are to busy living the American Dream to really give any worthwhile thought about Europe.

This is a nation that has a world rounders competition that involves only themselves & Canada

Yeah horrible I know I mean they are on a rampage, those evil Christians. My local Catholic Church just preached that we need to blow up more concerts and the beheadings need to increase by 30% by next quarter.

Our ghettos are a product of horrific parenting and welfare handouts.

Most people dont know that most of the original 13 had official/state sponsored churches

Which for all practical purposes was largely ignored......

Lets move on to the bunch which you conveniently ignored that totally "Bollux" your response

The colony of Maryland was CATHOLIC.....it was a haven for persecuted catholics from England

The irish had been fleeing the murderous rule of the british throughout this period and what were the irish principally?

Wait for it....

CATHOLIC.

Lets not forget the great clearance of Scotland.......many went to Ireland and others came to the colonies....they were principally Jacobites (Catholics).

The Pilgrims of Plymouth colony were SEPARATISTS from the church of england (IE the were trying to escape the corrupt doctrine and practices of Henry the VIII's church.

Again a bit weak on your history knowledge.

Maryland pretty much came about due to rise of Puritans in England, you know the Civil War bit. Well life under the Republic was rather hard on Catholics, most assumed loyal to previous king. So the original settlers pretty much were all English, btw that's a reason for the States name...

These Puritans in turn, your separatists, were separatists from the other Puritans and not separatists from CoE, left the UK.

The clearances are relatively complicated but mainly ecomnic and pretty much carried out by Scottish landowners on their own tenants.

http://www.tartansauthority.com/reso...nd-clearances/

They were however a result of the Union of Scotland with England nearly a hundred years earlier, both the 1715 and 1745 uprisings were both looking at replacing a Protestant leader with a Catholic one.

However, as the clearances began in the 1780's (and lasted about 100 years) to simply say it was down to religion is wrong, things such as wool prices had a dramatic impact on the clearances.

My dads side of the family (sept of McGregor Clan) were actually cleared from their ancestral lands to Ireland, whereas part of my mothers family (Scottish land owners) were involved with the evicting of others.

Do try and keep up with your history please

You helped a bit but most of the credit for aeronautical research goes to the Germans we snatched up after WW2.

That's true for the US & Russia, us Brits were well ahead of the game. We invented the jet engine & so much more

As for Great Britain helping the us a 'bit' to achieve super sonic flight, your guys were clueless about how to sort their issues.

unfortunately weapons are easily available in Europe due to open borders & the large number of ex Warsaw Pact countries.
