Gotta love the faux outrage against stating the obvious - aside from the anachronistic "occupying countryâ€™s government." So if Texas ever opts for independence, they will portray the USA as an army of occupation? How many occupying troops are on the streets of Houston today?

They weren't patriots. God-hating liberal revisionist history began in 1776.
San Jose John wrote: Exactly! When Rush Limbaugh said "I hope he (Obama) fails", he wasn't talking about America the country and its people, he was talking about OBAMA and his administration. Even so, many chose to misrepresent his statement as an "attack" on "America". Isn't it sad that so many Americans are now so much like sheep and so dependent on "government" that any criticism on said "government" is perceived to be an attack on them personally?
Exactly. That is why you need a King who is above party politics and embodies the nation!
To attack a King IS an attack on a nation as a whole. He even employs His Majesty's Loyal Opposition, an entire government in waiting, waiting for the government of the day to mess up, lose the confidence of the House, and be replaced forthwith.
It is a good system.
It is your system that creates the confusion between political leadership and representation of the country. This is despite your obsession with the separation of powers AWAY from the people's democratically accountable representatives!

You are worried that a united kingdom of two kingdoms, one principality (which is part of one of the kingdoms) and six-eighths of a province will BECOME fragmented? Begs the question as to what you see as unity?
San Jose John wrote: My thoughts as well. I don't remember hearing that we ever "asked" England (sic) if we could secede from them. I was always taught that we simply "declared our independence" and began the process (which included the War of Independence) of leaving their empire.
â€śAmerica today would be unrecognizable to our founders" and this has been true since 1776. There was far more change from the values and principals of the forefathers in the first 156 years than in the following 236.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
Sex-selection abortion is also a very profitable source of invisible earnings for the USA economy.
There are those who are denied scan information to determine the sex of their unborn child in their own country who travel to USA to get a new scan, and then choose terminations depending on the result.
