WHAT IF...


W

e The People... had lost the Revolutionary War? English 1 - America 0. As we prepare for America's birthday tomorrow July 4th, the thought occurred to me earlier how different things would be here, or would they?

Instead of pizza being the number 1 junk-food, would we be serving fish n chips? Our spelling surely would be different... not to mention English accents. Plus, when the colonists came here did they ride their horses on the wrong side of the road? and when did we switch?

Canada might not be our neighbor to the north... we might all be one huge country. And how about the Queen? Would she have a summer residence here on Cape Cod? Would Ted Kennedy being wearing a white wig? Would I be living in Houstonshire on the Gulf?

When everyone wanted George Washington to become the leader of the country, they wanted to make him King... but he refused and that's when they came up with President.

Observations and Questions
Can you think of any other ideas that would be different? Am I the only one that sits here and thinks about these things?

P.S. Sorry about no pictures or graphics but my Solis account is screwed up. I guess it won't get fixed until I can get someone in their offices.
