"our own people"

"our"?

Moggie, I see little reason to believe you identify with American people

Additionally, it should be clear why Chinese immigrants are so successful, by and large, in other cultures

It reflects a number of attributes, quite common to immigrants

Hardy, self-sufficient, enterprising and adventurous

Typically highly successful and/or educated (at least, nowadays)

Usually the principal immigrant in the family has attributes that the Western nation desires and the immigrant has the wherewithal to meet the challenge

Is it any wonder, then, that the typical Chinese occidental immigrant has at least one greatly successful family member in the West?

In fact, you can often read my posts which refer to the Americans as "they" rather than "we".

But I don't argue your point. However, I am deeply connected historically and of course elements of the culture which crept into me since birth need some time to ooze out again. I am more connected to USA than any other country, so this really is the identifier I'm stuck with. Maybe I'm a disgruntled American, but I really don't have much other choice than to speak about them as "my people", "my country", etc. If they don't wanna be my country, they should stop taxing me and stop asserting authority over me.

Agree

they should stop taxing you

Some will take umbrage, but I agree

Taxes are a scourge

This is one of the tenets of libertarianism, a philosophy which is maligned by some here

the flipside is that you have to do things for yourself

in some ways, that is real freedom

There are plenty of countries that require high-moral conduct from visitors and all countries limit foreigners rights (of course). Some countries don't allow a visiting female to dress in her  foreign style, some have outlawed marriage between foreigner and their citizens,  etc...
