i guess we will never know

probably
but i don't think that the way our country came about would be the same

I think America would still be here. Perhaps, if we would have lost to the French, of course we'd rebel again and kick thier asses.

umm, marbles? if the french won, you'd be french. you'd be speaking french and living in Les Etats- Unis de L'Amerique. You'd be eating crepes, honey.

yes why not

I think a better question would be:

"Would the United States exist if Hitler hadn't started a two front war with the U.S.A. and the Soviet Union?"

But in answer to the question at hand, the U.S. would most likely still be here.

^care to explain that one?

It's so very hard to speculate on how the world would turn out if something had or hadn't happened. My guess was that the U.S would've come around no matter who was in control of it.

It may not have come about a soon. By the time of the French Revolution the North American and largely former British colonies would have attempted independence and probably have succeded.

the french dont matter for anything

^except for the fact that you might as well have lost your war of independence without their help ...

I dunno

The French would have surrendered. They always do.

Depends if you're defining the U.S. as a sovereign nation on this continent or if you are trying to make the country appear in any meaningful way as it does today.

Yes, it would exist, just probably not the way that we know it... the real question is, is that a good thing or a bad thing???
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 4/15/05 - 3:50:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
well...it would have depended on how the French kings dealt with the colonies...taxation and such...without a successful american revolution, there may not have been a successful French revolution..no napoleon...no prussia...hmmm
interesting.

The colonies under french dominion would have been different...France with the colonies would have had more resources, and is bigger then the UK...so they may not have taxed as heavily...
we might still be a french protectorate at this point....hmmm
