Americans don't flee...and didn't want to go back to Europe for their world wars.

I agree about European history.

But I suggest that you look more at human history.

In 1660s.

 

They were 'fleeing' to the Americas long before that. The Spanish were essentially first in...all that New World gold to be had. The Spanish Main...yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum. The English and Dutch had their pirate economy...preying on Spanish galleons etc. The French...less so....but still some bad ass pirates. L'Olinaise...check that lovely fellow out.

I agree, DoD.

Once some Europeans understood that they could go elsewhere, they went.

 

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

With your attitude, b_c, America will die.

Your Founders never thought that way - they were positive-sum thinkers.

True. But people like b_c don't get it.

Your Constitution was created for you, in 1788. Your first several amendments are a wonder to the world: They restrict the State! Trudeau Snr understood this.

Oh please...I am not advocating for martial law or emergency powers.

Worry about your own nation....not America.

I am not advocating marshall law  .

But b-c, why is your Fed not part of the triumvirate: Answer, in the Enlightenment , people were just beginning to symbols for reality.
