    We have almost two and a half times the population of Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand COMBINED, and only a minority of the U.S. population is of British descent. The majority are of German, African, Irish, or Latin American descent. We are VERY different from you, and the silly idea that the U.S. is "Britain, Jr." is as far from the truth as you can get.

    During the early Continental Congress they fiddled with the idea of having a single official language (thankfully nothing came of that exclusionary stupidity, fit only for a primitive monoculture) but while they were considering it, the leading contender wasn't English, it was German (supported by, for instance, Benjamin Franklin).

    The majority or emigrants to the 13 colonies were of English decent, however, there were also other Northern Europeans as well as French and German who came for religious freedoms and other reasons.

    Te earliest migrants to the USA were indeed British, but that was before the USA was even a country. The USA has since become a melting pot, not just for Europeans, but people from all over the world.

    Yes as most of their grandparents came from England during that time.

    Not any more. Like almost all countries, except the very poorest, the US people are of very mixed inheritance.
