Colonial empire

All the people in these areas are full French citizens with all the rights that come with them (access to social services, political representation, tax obligations and voting rights).

Meanwhile the American colonial empire is way more sinister. Millions of people without representation on the federal level or voting powers. Sub-categories of citizens that are allowed to serve in the army but are not full Americans citizens. Large swaths of their lands seized by eminent domain for American military bases, and tax-dodging corporations.

tax dodging corporations
Our territories pay taxes

And the worst part of this is the fact that a lot of these unbearable circumstances are justified by supreme court rulings from the beginning of this century that are unironically calling the American nationals living in the places 'alien and foreign subraces'.

The next time you attack people, educated yourself a minimum about the topic before doing it.

Jackson Rodriguez

They don't pay certain federal taxes which makes it easier for certain companies to set up subsidies there.

Next time you attack someone point out what they said was wrong.

explain to me how what we do is worse than German colonialism

Grayson Williams

Easy, German colonialism did stop 100 years ago while American colonialism still continues. I didn't even mention the British Indian Ocean territory that is under British sovereignty but technically leased to the American military after it was dismembered from Mauritius with its population forcibly expelled. They recently successfully petitioned in front of the ICJ so we actually might see this territory returning to Mauritius in the future.

Are you implying that it would need a foreign power to invade the US and to force to treat its own citizens with some dignity? Wow.

get fucked Hans, our territories share the same rights that we have

French Polynesia is huge with a surface area that could cover much of Europe. As the French state guarantees universal to all of its citizens military aircraft are used to provide for medical evacuations for French citizens living on dispersed islands without any additional cost. Meanwhile the US can't even guarantee access to universal healthcare coverage within its major population centers. This is the most extreme and pathetic example that I can come up with.

According to current legislation a person born in North Dakota that grew up in France all his life or any other expat can vote for the American president and his congressional representative. Meanwhile an American citizen born on American soil of these territories has no voting representation in Congress, no senators and is not allowed to vote for the president.

Grayson Clark

Taxes don't pay for healthcare idiot. Healthcare expenditure as share of GDP:

France 11%
USA 17%

They did petition the federal government or the supreme court numerous times but either congress is unwilling or the supreme court is citing those same racist rulings a century ago.

Yes, with military bases that cover half of their islands territory like in the case of Guam, lmao. Recently there was a local ruling that forced the American government to pay compensation for the territories seized by the military and the American paid for the value of the land (from last century) but you don't understand something. These people are American citizens, they watch American TV shows eat American food and go shopping to American supermarkets. They bravely endured Japanese occupation and celebrated when they were liberated by allied forces. In fact those territories have the highest rates of enlistment than any other place of the United States, fighting wars for a country in which they aren't even allowed to vote and yet their own government treats them like shit and as some form of second class citizen.
