My god, I just finished going over France in My Comparative Government class. Ten different governments in barely 200 years. I no longer view them as a real country.

Ever since the American and French Revolution, the americans and french look at one another's government or governments. as thomas jefferson put it in the declaration of independence, of which the french look at a lot throughout history it seems "if one's government does not do their job, those being governed have a right to outright throw over said government, and make a new one" paraphrased, but yet again this whole saying goes back to locke, who basically thinks that the governed choose who and what governs them

And that statement seriously makes me wonder why the **** there hasn't been a second American Revolution....I mean, America is legitimately the only country not run by a dictatorship, who has openly spied on their citizens, and the people have done NOTHING about it.....and that is the first of many reasons why I hate my ********** of a country.

Let me put it in my opinion. well the problem with our country, USA, is the fact that there is too many people. John Locke says that the people rule the government. I believe it is true in most cases, but then I favor Hobbes when it comes to america. The government rules the people, and the people need the government to run their lives. If there was a start of a revolt, our government does not need to interfere with military grade weapons. The right to protest one another would be so grand, that left and right wing activists that support each side would be too stubborn to do anything. There is always people hating our government and there is always people loving it. The numbers are usually equal. The numbers are so grand, that it has to be harder to change anything. The USA population is heavily more than France's, so france has an easier and faster time to change the minds of people. USA cannot do that. Unless something like slavery were to erect again, then yes. But the problem is that there is no seceding allowed. Also the Americans barely overthrew the british, having 1/3 patriotic, 1/3 not giving a ****, 1/3 loyalists. That is easily the same way we are today. Just the numbers of a 1/3 is proportionally larger then the 1776's population.    
   
tl;dr The USA is such a grand and populus country, something more drastic that effects specifically all civilians would need to happen to overthrow the US government. One example of that only happening was USSR being overthrown by the eastern European countries and whatnot. A lot of people in one country, a lot of minds that need to support such a drastic change of what is a world power.

"The Khanates are considered to have been a unified Mongol Empire under Kublai stretching from Korea and China in the east through Siberia and Central Asia and into Persia and Eastern Europe in the west it would easily be the world's largest in terms of both land area and population" Literally only had to Google 2 words to prove you wrong.

No, the British Empire was the largest empire in history. The Mongolian empire was the largest contiguous (one area of land) in history.

We had Canada AND India.

Then you made the mistake of letting us go, and we struck oil!
Your fleet was also made of mostly Norwegian wood. Denmark is responsible for chopping down 1/5 of the Norwegian forests while you owned us, because you needed wood for the endless napoleon wars.

Let you go?
We tried to be armed and neutral during the Napoleonic wars, for that we got ****** by the English who burned our capital stole our navy and later gave our beloved Norway to the vile and smelly Swedes.

We never wanted to let you go...

Also, you only got that much of the oil because we send a drunk to negotiate the oil rights borders with you, if we had a competent guy negotiate for us we would have almost as much as you guys.

I've seen enough El Classicos to know what being Catalonian is to being Spanish or justa quick read on the Civil War but yeah, a few of them do get a bit pissy when you call them Portuguese rather than Madeiran even though most of the community have taken up calling them porkos as a derogatory term .

It's just like any nationality, I guess. You're bound to meet some assholes and then base the rest of their community on that but I just found it strange that there seemed to be such a difference in personality between 2 groups from, essentially, the same country.

The thing with independence isn't that bad as Catalonia and Spain. Most of the madeirans know that we wouldn't last 2 days if we got independence. Hell, most of us don't want it. It's just a stupid thing that the regional leader was obsessed about and some others followed him. Today, maybe some old people that are his supporters may want independence, but the rest of the population knows it's total ********. In fact, what pisses me of is that there is too much difference between the mainland and the island, because of some regulations imposed by our government, in an attempt to be gain more independence. Like, if you want to get prescription meds in a pharmacy in Lisbon, there is some papers you have to get or some ****.
