America wouldn't be here. We revolted from them, kicked their ass, kicked their ass again and then saved their ass.

We'd all be speaking British. We'd also probably be less ethnically diverse and much of the southwest/west coast would probably have remained under Spanish/Mexican control.

Wow I heard British was super complex compared to English, too. Good thing we won the revolution.
