Its quite funny actually. The "White" house didn't actually exist at this time. Oh, the HOUSE existed but it was a regular colour. It wasn't until we set it ablaze that you had to white wash it to get rid of the black scorch marks. Just remember America, your most recognisable building, and a symbol of the free world, only exists because the British empire burned it.

Sorry to inform you but it wasn't until after the Civil War that the White House became Iconic as the "Symbol of the Free World" (until of course Lady Liberty.) When President Lincoln was killed, the White House was refered to as "Lincoln's House". So in reality, In 1812, the White House was very unimportant in contrast to how it is today.

That's like saying Hitler is the worlds greatest hero because he didn't take over the world.... that makes no sense....

Yeah, and the Statue of Liberty was a gift from France. That's... kind of the point of America. You know, the great melting pot?

It's not like they gave us the whole statue assembled to begin with, do some research and find out how it was actually put together and how many people donated all they had so it could be built.

complaining about illegal immigrants, not people who come here who come here the way they're supposed to.

Which also to be fair, the outside view of America's standpoint on Illegal Immigrants is also focused on the people who think it's their duty to personally defend the US-Mexico border armed and ready. Those people are some crazy ***** that I wouldn't even wanna go near.

That's definitely not how it is. The Border Patrol is responsible for watching the US mexico border (and all other ways into the US) for illegal migrants. If a US citizen found out that someone was an illegal immigrant they would either

1) do nothing because they don't want to ruin that person's life.
2) report them to the police or Border Patrol, who would then most likely have them deported to their country of origin.

Any US citizen who was trying to guard the border them self would quickly be picked up and questioned by border patrol, and if they did manage to kill someone trying to get over he border they would face serious punishment.

Well not to the British entirely... The french too, with out whom the Americans WOULD have lost the war, look it up. Honestly, im not even joking either, the french blockaded british ships from sending more troops, supplies etc to America.

And without the british Canada would've lost the war, since the british did literally everything of significance in the war.
