    Minus 12: Obama Calls United States ‘A Former Colony’

    Minus 12: Obama Calls United States ‘A Former Colony’

    (CNSNews.com) -- In his re-election victory speech on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama referred to the United States as a singular “former colony,” when the United States was actually composed of 13 separate colonies prior to gaining independence from the British.

    “Thank you so much. Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward,” said Obama, which was the first sentence of his remarks in Chicago, Ill.

    Before the United States won its independence from Great Britain with the Treaty of Paris in 1783, the entities that made it up were 13 separate colonies along the Atlantic seaboard. These 13 colonies had separate legislatures and legal systems. The British also had sovereignty over Canada, which did not become part of the United States.

    From 1775-1776, the delegates of the Continental Congress worked to establish a consensus for declaring independence from the British Crown, on behalf of the 13 colonies.

    The United States of America was viewed as a single country only after the 13 colonies jointly declared their independence and formed a federation.

    Maybe he has this country confused with a country on another continent.

    He's an idiot. He knows and understands ZIP about our history and how it shaped us as a nation.

    Oh he understands it, he just hates it. He's an anti-colonialist, America hating POSSOB who deserves to be tried for treason (or more likely, espionage) and dealt with accordingly. JMO.

    Obama described America as a former Colony because he considers white Christian Americans to be part of continued colonialism on this continent that he plans to end.
