Some probably do. Some probably do not. At the time, way back then, quite a few did not want to break from England. We probably would not have had it not been for Crazy King George. I read somewhere that not only was he certifiable, but he was a German decendent of the Crown, and spoke only German. Don't know if that part is true, but He was the reason we separated from the Crown.

in the 1794 Jay Treaty, the United States agreed to pay 600,000 pounds sterling to King George III, as reparations for the American revolution. The Senate ratified the treaty in secret session and ordered that it not be published. When Benjamin Franklin's grandson published it anyway, the exposure and resulting public uproar so angered the Congress that it passed the Alien and Sedition Acts (1798) so federal judges could prosecute editors and publishers for reporting the truth about the government.<br />
The United States Bank had been opposed by the Jeffersonians from the beginning, but the Federalists (the pro-monarchy party) won out in its establishment. The initial capitalization was $10,000,000 -- 80% of which would be owned by foreign bankers. Since the bank was authorized to lend up to $20,000,000 (double its paid in capital), it was a profitable deal for both the government and the bankers since they could lend, and collect interest on, $10,000,000 that didn't exist.<br />
However, the European bankers outfoxed the government and by 1796, the government owed the bank $6,200,000 and was forced to sell its shares. (By 1802, the U.S. government owned no stock in the United States Bank.)<br />
Does England regret her colony?<br />
Cause we didn't win that "revolution".

Nope. I like not having to queue up for everything and not having the police watch me with cameras on every street corner. But I am extremely proud to share a common heritage with the UK.
