Interesting thesis.

  <blockquote>        <p>The original North American colonies were settled by people from distinct regions of the British Isles—and from France, the Netherlands, and Spain—each with its own religious, political, and ethnographic traits. For generations, these Euro-American cultures developed in isolation from one another, consolidating their cherished religious and political principles and fundamental values, and expanding across the eastern half of the continent in nearly exclusive settlement bands. [&#8230;] There’s never been an America, but rather several Americas—each a distinct nation. There are eleven nations today.</p>    </blockquote>
