That's very kind of you to invite us to your barbecue, but on behalf of my countrymen and women, I'd like to respectfully decline.
We are different from you...our culture, our government, our values...in many, many ways. You'd have to be standing on this side of the for a while
fence to get it.
I doubt you would have a whole lot of understanding for our special relationship with our French cousins, as well as the Brits. Yours is not a country
where a female, Black, Francophone Haitian could become head of state. We have the cultural mosaic, you have the melting pot.
We are linked in a lot of ways, but trust me, it ain't gonna work out. Strong fences make for good neighbours...and we even spell it differently.

All I am saying is that I would like to see what the founding fathers wanted finished. A united North American continent. If it happens that's great,
if it doesn't that's fine.
I would just like to see the founding fathers dream completed, without any unions. Just 1 federal government and 63 states. And it be at the will of
the people, not the governments.
If you look at your history, you'll see that the idea is called "Manifest Destiny", and I believe we responded way back in 1812. Sorry about
burning down the White House, but Fog of War and all that...
