Yep, we're your good old punching bag. As a Canadian I laugh at our predicament, the largest unprotected peaceful border? Imagine it wasn't peaceful.
imagine Americans decided Canada with it's paltry 34 million people, and huge amounts of natural resources would benefit from statehood...how long
till 'ally' becomes annexed territory? What could we do to stop it but a Taliban style guerilla warfare... I mean don't get me wrong about it I like
America, you guys make great movies, and there's alot of cool stuff in your country...but I'm ok! I like my broken healthcare system(still working
kinda sorta) and my colored money(easier to tell apart), my hockey (way better then baseball or football btw you should check it out, you have some
great teams), my terrible justice system(I mean if I decide to go looting, I'd like to be out of jail to enjoy it).
My countries government does some stupid things like yours. But I look around my little piece of this nation and I can't help but wonder WTF everyone
is always so tense about in the USA. There air is clear, the economy stinks but when doesn't it stink, we're only in one war we shouldn't be and by
next year we're done (don't we look smart staying out of Iraq now), as far as I can tell we're the worlds darling like Australia... Sure we've made
some terrible mistakes (I'm talking about our own native peoples who are coddled and cursed) but I feel like we learn and most people move on. There
isn't as great an undercurrent of racism, hate, and general mistrust among my people (except the québécois...but they just like to be difficult).
When it comes down to it, America and Canada are neighbors with mutual interests. You provide the "beef"(except in Alberta) and we are your PR. But
trust me, we don't want to be roommates.
Note to the OP I know you were praising Canada but I needed to express my version of the American/Canadian relationship, the slightly condescending
tongue in cheek Canadian humour style.
