Hey, just wondering if anyone else for that matter, know anything on the first war of independence. I was taught about this in school (England) and never really questioned it, but a few years ago, I found a number of references which claimed that although America 'won' the first war of independence, reparations were to be paid to England, or 'Britain' for the cost of the war, not to mention loans, that had been used to fund AMERICA's side of the war.
“The Unknown American Revolution: The Unruly Birth of Democracy and The Struggle to Create America” by Gary B. Nash, published by the Penguin Group, NYC 10014, 2005.
From what I understand, America has been mason controlled since the birth of America, just over 2 centuries ago. If this is true, I really don't see how America WON, apart from the fact that they said they won and England said nothing. It also raises questions as to England’s intent, if England had offered this treaty and America agreed, it sounds like either they were over a barrel, or 'independence' was just a staged coup d’état as it was seen as an inevitability. America was far to big for England to police, it would only grow in its size, scope and self sustainability, the more I think the more it just seems to be an intelligent move and one that could've well been discussed back then. Sorry if this is slightly off topic . .
I was under the impression the united States of America was a corporation of England and not even a Country. Is there any truth in this? isn't that why it is called The united states? United by the Crown ? As in Canada being owned by England also As in Crown Land, the good ole English looking queen on our money etc...

My bring it was half satire, half serious. I doubt this would happen, but Americanization is a big fear over hear, with the talk of the Amero and what not. I agree with the wounded animal in a corner, and who knows how bad things will get in the states. I mean it is hard to climb out of a recession when you know longer have any basic industry because you outsourced it all. A resource rich country with the worlds longest undefended border might look tasty, in which case they are going to find themselves with some feisty Canadian boys on their hands.

jeeze, I just read some of the canadian replys...so vicious...
seriously?...maybe i didnt catch the "J/K" or sattire?
is this the normal sentiment towards Americans in Canada?
surely, canada (which supported the war on terror) and the world has an opinion about America and the war in Iraq. Illegal. Agreed.
America would certainly sustain damage, but do canadians actually believe their military could last against american intel and military superiority? ...there is a reason America won the cold war...intelligence
fortunately, this situation will never come to be (excluding some pact such as the NAU) but take it easy northern brothers...Im pretty sure we are on the same side
No kidding, believe me most Canadians don't really hate Americans. Just look at it if the roles were reversed, and you read a thread about Russia planning to invade the USA. You wouldn't like it, and you'd likely vow to fight to the death to protect your own, right? Canadians are fiercely proud of their country, and one would have to search pretty far to find a people as patriotic as we are.

Well, our military is better equipped than the Taliban . . I like America. But sometimes I think Americans are too smug about their military superiority.
I'm one of them, and believe me most Canadians don't really hate Americans. Just look at it if the roles were reversed, and you read a thread about Russia planning to invade the USA. You wouldn't like it, and you'd likely vow to fight to the death to protect your own, right?
And you better watch it, because we might just invade YOU! Heck, we could send our entire armed forces down and we MIGHT be able to take Idaho Have a good one my 'merican cousin
the TWO largest untapped sources of fresh water in North America are the Great Bear Lake (536 cu mi) and Great Slave Lake (501 cu mi), both of which happen to be in Canadian territory.
