    AHHHHH yes well done you invented the internet. BUUUUUTTTTT it was Tim Berners-Lee who inveted the World Wide Web (by the way he's a brit). You see, we get your crappy basic inventions like the internet, and make it great. Also we invented to TV which you yanks seem to love seeming you sit on your arses all day watching them and getting fat.

    Well now that's a lie! Because I know Europe has one, although I could be wrong

    But I could have sworn...but this I will admit I am/might be wrong about. Everything else should be pretty accurate!

    a) there isn't a nation called europe
    b) the entity caled the "european union" doesn't have one.
    c) the nation called "the united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland" of which moste of the people here are citizens of, does not have a constitution.
    d) most people here would be offended that you are confusing us with europe. this thread has been (accidentally) US vs UK, not US vs Europe.

    Win over? The words massacre and slaughter come to mind!
    The native ppl were peaceful and willing to live side by side w/ the white man. See we did not know of this thing called greed! We were naive, and beleived it would be good, we were never 'bloodthirsty' as you put it.

    The European Union proposed one but it got rejected becasue a constitution is not a very smart idea. Neither does the UK have a constitution, we have a system of rights (common law-used nearly all over r the world), originally based on the Magna Carta.

    When you say Indians, when referring to a land filled with many, many tribes, it would seem ignorant to suggest this is all Indians. You call me stereo-typing, yet you are accumulating all Native Americans as one when using the term "Indian".

    Not all tribes were fighting, and yes, there were many blood-thirsty tribes, which even killed many of the first settlers. And we did win the fight against them, and there are still those peaceful tribes which obviously do not count in the war, so it would be ignorant of you to suggest they do.

    You are part Native American, you say, so I can understand your ignorance, but I already told you I am part Native American. Seriously, use your common sense.
