If Canada wants to merge with the US, it should apply for statehood. Canada would be our second largest state in population, after California, if it were to be admitted to the union.

I REMEMBER MY HERO PAT BUCHANNAN ADVOCATED making England our 51’st state. More cream in the coffee. I could see the same with Canada. They are TEACHABLE: single payer healthcare notwithstanding. Canada may have something better than energy that we can use; water.

They probably wouldn’t do it that way. I imagine each province would be a separate state. In a discussion about the Philippines achieving statehood, each province there was also looked at as a state.

I'm thinking in terms of a merger of New England and New York (7 states in total) into a gigantic superstate, to be replaced by 6 new Canadian states. The Canadian right is a lot like moderate Democrats, so this would be the only solution that did not tilt the Senate too far towards the Dems. In the House, the GOP would lose a lot of seats.
