Britain's colonial legacy included parliamentary democracy, common law & the English language. I wonder what legacy the United States will leave behind ? Convention dictates it will be liberty, individual freedoms ... but will it really ? There's every indication otherwise, in which case there's no legacy whatever.

Hopefully, when it is time for America to be replaced by something else, America will have left the legacy of being the first nation to break the cultural barrier by not having one.
I think this would be profound.
