1st, BO's health care thingy does not go into effect until after the next election, just the taxing has started. Fact is the the 30 some million without health care in the US breaks down to this. The poor don't need it, the gubmit already picks up their bill. The rich don't need it as they can pay out of pocket. How many does that leave? A few 22 year olds who are not students and opt out of their employer's plan?

I like Canada and most of the Canadians I've met are good people. I would kinda go for Canada as a state or several states as long as Les Quebequios are left out. Plus, Canada's gubmit has not been as good an ally as of late.

Plus, wouldn't England have something to say?

So, keep your Queen and your Prime Minister and your Socialism ways up north. Maybe melding with Mexico would be better for Canada. Oh, and how much taxes do you all pay on your income to cover free sub-par health care and free education? By the way, did not your Minister of Heath (or whatever it is called) come to the US recently for health care? If the Socialists would have their way, all of North America would be one country with one currency. No thanks.

Good point, part of some discussion that I would love to get going here! It is true that the Queen is technically the head of state of Canada, although as many as 90% of Canadians do not recognize her as such according to Ipsos Reid. There is debate in Canada about monarchist separation and the formation of a full republic. Check:
Citizens for a Canadian Republic

Once again on the healthcare, it is a dual system in Canada, both Private and public, and in any case it could be run on a state-by-state basis, so it wouldn't be forced onto anyone who doesn't want it!

I'm pretty right-wing, so I don't see the union idea as a socialist plot. Like the merging of two corporations, to me this seems like a good idea to benefit everyone. But please, explain your point.


For anyone wondering why I bring this topic up, its not to convince anyone to make this happen. Its just that I see two very similar countries with things to gain form each other, but everyone on both sides of the border seems to not like the idea, but have very few good reasons against it.

Anyone have any thoughts why some sort of union would be bad, that wouldn't be answered by it being a state-by-state choice, like gun laws?

Together, Canada and the US would have a more powerful economy than the entire EU!

Canada is just truly lucky we haven decided to send some American flags via DHL and insist you fly them. If we ever decided to go Napoleonic north of the border, it would be a swift victory.

You guys can keep your mayonnaise and French fries, eh.

This has been in the planning for a long time. Basically the world will be divided into economic zones. The EU with Germany in the lead, The old Sino Soviet pact now China and Russia, Mideast with Iran or Iran/Turkey in the lead and the American Union. The Zones would be under the auspices of the United Nations and the Secretary General would in effect be the world ruler.
The USA will have to be brought down to former world power status to accomplish this and there is a concerted effort by the behind the scenes world leaders to accomplish this. People like George Sorros. No official titles but tremendous power. The main hangup at the moment is that the destabilization of the USA could cause a world wide economic collapse.
Current economic policies are driving us into bankruptcy and I cant help but believe it is a deliberate effort. Obamacare may be the last nail in the coffin. There will be a concerted effort like we have not seen before to disarm us so we can be led like sheeple to slaughter. I for one want no union with a nation that allowed their freedom to be taken away. Armed you are a citizen, disarmed you are a subject.

Used to spend time with the Canadian Airborne- Princess Pat's boys- good soldiers. Actually, there are a lot of folks that think that LEAVING the US would be a good idea. How about we start by giving you Detroit- and see how that works out?

Another genius post from a genius. If Detroit works out, then Chicago could be next, not the whole city. Just the politicians.

How about a straight up trade? Detroit for Windsor.
