A board to discuss all your real world problems.

Should 'England' become states of the USA?

Post by chesya » Fri Aug 30, 2019 12:10 am

I'm glad we're not discussing divisive politics any more. In the UK an unbelievable division has opened up between leavers and remainers regarding the EU. Really destructive arguments break out really easily and it's only a matter of time before serious violence breaks out. I don't see why not we can't discuss left field issues. When I lived in France it became increasing difficult to distinguish between British, Irish, North Americans, Australians, South Africans. We have similar jokes, the same slang, and other deep cultural proclivities. Even 10% of African Americans are descended from Edward III (echt) such are our ties.

Scotland and Ireland wish to stay in the EU, England and Wales might be up for it. Wales has only 2 million population, but has a separate identity and it's own language spoken by a third of the people and would have its own state. England has a Population of 55 million. It should be divided as Northumbria (Northern England), Mercia (midlands) and Wessex (South England), (15 million each) with London which is is highly distinctive with a population of 8 million being a separate state. 5 new states adding 15% brut GDP to the US.

I think an awful lot of English people actually think that and that the EU is a German plot!

Sure. If we can have Texas and Hawaii, I don't see why England wouldn't work.

Dear England,
First let us get finished integrating Alberta and Greenland, then we'll get back to you.
Signed, Uncle Sam

Would that mean we'd get Australia too?

Seeing as America is modeled after the Roman Republic and a little bit off some writing in the book of Samuel(1&2), I just wonder when will United States of America the Republic fall and America the Empire/Neo Rome rise. This was not a subtle thing back then the founding fathers even used Roman names as Pen names when writing.

But it already has reached the state of decadent rome.
(Where they thinks themselves at cultural arts, but no longer create new art, but just remakes of old masterpieces)

It will be pulled apart by some barbarians soon :D :P

Even after the Barbarians split it in two, both halves still survived 300 to 500 years afterward. Fact is there is an on going debate on if Rome truly fell or just evolved into a concept, because of how many countries started with the belief that they themselves what remained of Rome, or that they were Rome’s successor. Also even back in the republic days Rome was both Cocky and decadent, The days of Triumph celebrations are an example of that.(Not to mention our modern depiction of the Hebrew God Yahweh is the Roman Interpretation the one God of Sol Invictus, who is all the Roman and Greek gods wrapped into the Hebrew God.(and you probably know by now, not to get me started on religion, or the mess that is all modern Religions, also I’m not using God and gods in some sort of reverence, just Capital G refers to one god and lower case refers to plural))
