The phrase "manifest destiny," was coined by New York journalist John O'Sullivan in 1845, when he wrote that "it was the nation's manifest
destiny to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty
and federated self-government entrusted to us."

A quick overview of Canadian politics. We are not a republic as is the US. We vote for a party of political thought and the leader of that party
becomes our Prime Minister.
We have three main parties, the currently ruling Liberals, middle of the road slightly to the left.
The New Democrats, a left wing socialist based party.
And in the right corner we have the Conservatives. This party is of particular interest. Originally known as the Progressive
they recently absorbed an even more right wing party known as the Alliance Party and subsequently dropped the Progressive from the party title.
A qualifier: I am not anti-American by any means so please don't interpret this post as such.
Simply stated I am a proud Canadian, no different than the way Americans or Brits are for their homeland.
