U.S. is not a colonialist nation

In rebutting the ideas that America is not a colonialist or neocolonialist country, it is to be noted that this country was created as a colony of Great Britain, starting in 1620 with the settlement of Jamestown. Later, other settlers came to these shores and lived under the rule of the British government until 1776. Thus, this country did not control the destinies of other nations, but lived under the control of Great Britain and to a lesser extent under Spain in Spanish Florida.
