Why does everyone always seem to forget the Floridas?
Source of many of the Empire Loyalists in Canada, and the proof that even non-french Colonists were Loyal to the Crown?

Sigh.
Humph.

i consider myself loyal to the Crown..so Loyalist? absolutely,  when we left, we threw a good deal  our cultural heritage out the window,  and i see as yet, no proof the "American Experiment" will have the "staying power" of England in the long view of history. This is  especially  true right now with a government helplessly polarized and we as americans have no way of voting "No Confidence" in the fractured system as it limps along....d

I think this is an attempt at some sort of new way of spelling which is supposed to be more "logical."  I don't think it will catch on.

Please allow me to be pedantic.   Other people have proposed this kind of spelling system in the past (for example, John Dewey, the originator of the Dewey Decimal System).   However, for many words you still want the prefix, stem, and suffix to be clearly and consistently spelled, regardless how it is pronounced.   For example, ex-cept, re-cept, ac-cept.  The "cept" is derived from the Latin verb "capio, capere, cepi, captum" which means to take, seize, or grasp.  Also, "ex-" "ac- (or ad-)" or "re-" are Latin prefixes (some are derived from prepositions) that consistently mean the same thing.   If you spell "except" as "exept" or "accept" as "aksept" then it's harder to decipher what the word means, even though it might be easier to spell, which doesn't seem to be a worthy exchange.

As an editor who earns his living by using the English language I consider myself most, a sin highly, qualified to pontificate on this subject. Moreover, I am actually a poor speller so, when you read what I am about to say, you will know that my objectivity on this matter is unquestionable.  

Spelling reform is crap.

Yes, I would support repenting of our wicked revolution against the British Crown, the abolition of our Constitution, and our acceptance of Her Majesty Elizabeth II as the head of state.

I do have some sympathy to the Jacobite ideology, but I haven't studied the various arguments for and against to really uphold it, nor do I think it is supremely practically important at this point.

Actually, the DDS was not developed by the leftwing educator and philosopher, John Dewey. It was developed by Melville Louis Kossuth Dewey. Given his middle names, we can assume that his parents at least were committed republicans! He also was, however, a spelling 'reformer' who spelt his own first name as 'Melvil'.

I stand corrected.  I should have known it wasn't Jon Dewy, but Melvil.  

I had to look up "Louis Kossuth" and you seem to be right about being Melvil's parents being republican sympathizers.   Republicans also seem to have less problem with butchering the language.

Just Joined this site today-not to sound un patriotic, But I have never really had any loyalty to this country.  I greatly respect the British Crown-and not because I am descended from it.  I just think our way of government is a Hot Mess!!!!!  Not that all aspects of it are totally out of line.  But the idea of an "Elected" leader has eluded me.  Seems un natural.  Just saying!  I can see this country going in a more traditional direction..

Welcome.  With only one exception that I can think of, this site's American members (including me) proudly identify with the Loyalists.  In fact I just finished reading Christopher Ferrara's Liberty: The God That Failed which utterly demolishes the American Revolution and will give even those who have already reached this conclusion new "ammunition."

I'm actually considering a move to Canada later in my life. I think if any Americans here hope for monarchical government that might be the best bet, even if some Canadians are loathe to admit that their monarchy even exists.

I would like to know, if there is any agenda, on how the American Government can be "Converted".
Has anyone thought about how to bring this about?  Other than just letting everything go to hell-and start over.  I would really like to know if anyone has given serious thought to this.
Thanks
