I would second the comment about the USA. There is far more in common with the French in terms of shared experiences and values; I find many very affable Americans to have a very weird value-set; the nearest to us is in the NE e.g. Maine, but many there are relatively recent immigrants from here.
Whatever our leaders decide - and it won't be anything to do with our views or interests - we will remain geologically where we are and have to manage that proximity with some grace and practicality.

It is up to the federal government not to supress the minotity.
