Yeah, I agree. Alberta we'll take. The rest, well...forget it.
Whats wrong with the Yukon and British Columbia? Gives us a land bridge to Alaska and huge amounts of natural resources, and the current residents are by most part just as leery of the goverment as quite a few freepers!
Not going to happen Sam, at least not joining the USA that you know. Most posters mention Alberta ,which for some strange reason ,known only to the posters , would be happy swapping a Ottawa for a Washington. Given Alberta is "energy" what kind of energy deal would Washington hand to Edmonton? Albertans aren't that stupid. The big suprise comes when the Liberal governments of B.C. and Yukon, and the NDP socialist governments of Saskatchewan and Manitoba are mentioned. Bad Ontario is conservative and the richest. The only province never to receive stabilization payments. Yet for some reason, perhaps the existence of Ottawa within her borders , Ontario is viewed as beyond having any value. As for the Maitimes, we're keeping their wealth in oil, gas, and nickel a secret.
It's interesting to note that few ,if any, benefits would be in Canada's favour and that several benefits would be realized by the USA .Remembering that the only country ever to invade Canada has been the USA ,and that usually the smaller joins the larger I wonder that some day, after the Republics of Aztlan ,Hawaii, Alaska, Florida and North Eastern Somalia, formerly Maine, are recognized by the UN Canadians might vote 38% for allowing American PAU (Please annex us) delegates to visit Ottawa.:)
Nice find, Top
Sorry, but we don't want any more socialists joining the US. So I don't think the idea of Canada joining America is viable. [You'd have to get 3/4 of the states to agree as well as the Congress.] But the idea of Alberta breaking free -- is
My view is that Canada needs to decide whether She is going to make the effort required to find a way out of the decline She is in, or hasten the decline into disintergration.
We're not going to be your savior. And once you find out that you can handle things on your own and don't even need to be saved, you'll want to continue to be a free and soverign country.
I'm sure America and Americans will help you, but you need to take the lead in your own interests.
This whole idea of a USNA strikes me as being based on fear and greed and not goodness. I disagree with you about it gaining popularity.
The best idea I have heard is Alberta breaking free. Perhaps just a serious movement in that direction will ignite the changes needed...
C'mon ... wouldn't it be fun to annex Quebec and force them all to speak English (or possibly Esperanto)?
