Alrighty, well as the title suggests, this thread/poll is about Canada and the US becoming one country. Anyone can respond, but US and Canadian citizens are probably the most affected by this...
I am not giving any opinion because I don't want to influence others, I just want to see what other people think about the idea.
- - I'll ask that people keep the responses clean, this thread is for discussion and logical/reasonable arguments, not just emotional negative or positive responses! - -
So! Since Harper and Obama are talking about a new continental protection and trade/environment deal, I think its a good time to talk about how united our two nations are, and the benefits and drawbacks of that unity. Specifically, what do people think of uniting the two countries into either one sovereign country, or doing a North American union, where both nations are separate, but essentially with one economy.
To help think on this here is a link: take it and read the site:
United North America
I do not fully agree with the opinion on this site, but it is interesting to read.
In short, we are socially very similar: we have similar education, social values, religion, standards of living, similar government (with conditions) and essentially a united defense force. Read the website for more details.
Go for it, and don't forget the poll!
