Sort of. You mean that the administration of each ream is separate. I don't think this should be so.

I think I would fight against such a thing and would view it as a curse if it happened. I was born on soil that has never been controlled by Britain and I am proud of it. I have no feeling of connection with the English or their Sovereign and would like to keep it that way. There are some things I like about English culture and so forth; however, I am currently under no obligation whatsoever to care about the English crown, no member of my patrilineal blood ever has been, and I never will be. Hopefully, if I have any sons, they can say the same. I pray that the place of my birth is never considered the dominion of any royalty but the King of France, and, frankly, I would spill my blood to prevent my land from ever falling into the hands of the English. They already took Québec and that was too much.

The thirteen colonies belong to them and so forth -- fine. But that does not concern me.

But tell me, do you prefer the Queen of Britain or the US president?

And so you should be (if is true, which I doubt).

Patriotism and loyalty are virtues. I feel the same way toward my Queen and my country. You have good reason to be proud of France and I good reason to be proud of Britian. It's too bad there aren't more people like you in the world.

The US Presidents since 1952 have done better than Elizabeth has, mostly because she rubber-stamps whatever Parliament passes to her, even the most manifestly evil and insane bills. Then again, I have beliefs regarding the British succession that cannot be publicly stated on this forum and hence cannot answer your question. However, if I had to choose between being annexed to the UK and the status quo, I would choose the status quo. What a shame it would be if the perfidy of English colonists enabled the eventual double evil of Louisiane falling under the shadow of English rule. Just because those irreligious traitors broke away from George III and purchased stolen land from Buonaparte does not mean that their illegitimate purchase needs to return to English rule with them. Either both acts are de jure null and void or neither are.

Why would you doubt it? No part of the US west of the Mississipi was ever contolled by the British. It might have been 'claimed and granted' by the 'coast to coast' landgrants of the XVIIth century, but 'claim' and 'control' are qualitatively different.

Jovan,
The 'Mississippi to the Mountains' area was never under British Control, but parts of Washington State and Oregon were....

I am fond of neither but believe Sarkozy to be worse.

I was born in Minneapolis, my forefathers were French Canadians who migrated to Louisiana when the British took over Québec, and before that my family was from the Duchy of Touraine.

Likewise, sir, and thank you.

Quite right. It just so happens that I was born approximately three miles to the West of the Mississippi.

Oregon was British and Rupert's Land extended below the 49th parallel.

I stand corrected. Saying that he was located in "L\'ancien régime" confused me.

ContraTerrentumEQR,
On my Father's side we have two strains of French blood - the one that fled to Great Britain after the King of France revoked the irrevocable edict, and the other that like yours fled Quebec for Louisiana after the French surrendered the same to the British Crown.

Unlike yours our family took greater offence at the 'double betrayal' (surrender of Quebec, sale of Louisiana), especially when the second was to a people who had no respect for ours.

The actions of the King and people of France are seen as betrayal, and we do not forget that easily.

Perhaps this shared French blood explains why we are so often at odds - nothing is more strongly fought than a battle between brothers....
