Guess what... Canadians don't want an 'empire' like England and Rome. Both of them failed and the the promise of an American Global Empire doesn't look to rosy right now either. Didn't work for Napolean, Hitler, Alexander the Great and another dozen aspiring world conquerers.

So why would Canadians want that?


I think it's a good thing that they aren't like that. I wish every country didn't try to establish an empire and instead we all lived in peace.

What I was trying to say is Canadians act like they are 'that' country. Even though their country was one of the first to be controlled by the Global Elite.

The average American has a great life just like Canadians, better than Canadians. We get all the cool high tech gadgets we could ever dream of. The thing is we're both slaves to the global elite. So what they are pitying us for is hypocritical and they are a victim of it as well.
The OP basically said he's pitying us because we are still putting up a fight against TPTB.

I agree with you completely. Except for the part where Canadians don't do the same thing.

To answer your first question:
You always know who is a Canadian in America because they constantly tell you they are from Canada. It's annoying. They always say stuff like, "In canada we do this." or "we don't do that in Canada."
If Canada is so great, why'd they leave?

With the rebranding of "Government Of Canada" into "The Harper Government", along with the death of Jack Layton as well as the imminent Keystone XL pipeline in the works (Just to name a few factors)... I'm not impressed by the direction Canada seems to be leaning, but it won't be because we are being dragged down by the US, it'll be because we wholly succumbed to the same crooked, morally bankrupt ways that have been eating up and spitting out the public's will to prosperity and strife of trying to do the right thing. Courtesy of TPBP, perchance. I think at this juncture, to empathize would be much more beneficial than to pity. It would only make sense, we're in the same boat. We being the good guys.

Perhaps the difference is Americans are more vocal about it. Maybe because Americans outnumber us 10 to 1...maybe because Americans are often louder than we are. Whatever the reason, there is a difference. Canadians tend to point to international polls and say, "Look, they like us...we're number 3." Americans have a habit of saying, "We don't care what anyone thinks of us, we're number 1!"

Technically though we tend to learn what we don't think other countries think of us anyways. I see so many foreign tourists coming to Disney-world every year in Florida. They kept asking me about America being all redneck and they say "we don't do this" and that and that. Saying they have better people here and all. Really annoyed the crap out of me.

I think the difference is that we have bases in 170 countries. Or we control the world's reserve currency. We actually have the empire that Canadians act like they have. Yes, the empire is on decline, it doesn't mean we didn't have it.
I don't support this at all, btw. I'm just saying.

I think that's a little rude. The OP was stating that he SUPPORTS Americans and still thinks we have it in us to fix our problems.

OP, I appreciate your support. We are not all rude. Luckily, however, we do have the freedom to be as rude as we want.


No its not rude at all. Did you see anywhere in my post me direct any of it to the OP? No. You should review the post again I think. I have nothing against the OPs post, however, I've seen over two threads that say how horrible americans are.. but who are they to start giving out advice on how to fix another country's problems when they have just as many, if not more, problems than we do. Im simply tired of seeing the US under the microscope all the time.. what about the other countries adding to the problem instead of being apart of a solution.

ETA: If you're referring to the comment I made about other countries kissing my a** then you took it another way. I was talking about all the other people with these great ideas on how to fix our problems. Most of those threads are pretty much throwing a few jabs at americans while were on the ground.

If my fellow Canadians act like we have an empire, then they're very much mistaken. And, why they'd even want to have one, I have no idea.

So do I. Does anyone actually view this country with amazement? Maybe if you're amazingly stunned by the stupidity constantly on display by our leaders.

Pity would be about right, and I'm sure it's not only Canada which feels this way. Anyone who who might be surprised my something like this, watches far too much MTV. We are a world power, which is disintegrating, step by step, yet is hidden by the sheer oblivious state many American minds live in, and have lived in, for decades. Actually, pity is kind.

I use much stronger language to describe what I see happening to this country. If you ask me, living in Canada would be quite amazing compared to what is happening within our borders.

The entire planet is in it together. The US isn't going down it is being deliberately taken down by the Gloablists. In case no one is paying attention the troubles of the world is coming directly out of the UK. The proof comes out more everyday. Guess what Canda you are owned and controlled by them more than we. The US Presidents have been part of the UK Royalty from day one. We the people thought we had gotten rid of the trash that the Canadians love so well. They just simply went underground now they are not in the least bit worried about the American people finding out the truth. Canadians need to remember that the plans of the Club Rome also headquartered out of the UK incudes Canada( North American Union) as Region 1. Why I don't know because their plans certainly are not going to make us number 1. None of us are going to be number 1. Take a look at their map when you see the little black dots. That is where what few people are left will be living. This isn't about the people this is about TPTB if anyone thinks they can go along to get along will find themselves in the same position as Khaddify and the rest of their CIA owned goons. The point is if we don't unite we will all perish. We don't need pity, we don't need envy, we don't need empathy. We all need to UNITE.

Only we have not been screwed out of the the houses we live in.


People were not screwed into losing there homes. They were screwed by the government relaxing the regulations to purchase a home, along with cars and credit cards. thus enabling the meltdown. The Banks did not and could not do it on their own, the government enabled them to do it.
As for the packaging of the bad loans?..... The Banks did that with a blind eye from our government.

I, as a Canadian, never looked at the US with envy. I believe we live in one of the best countrie in the world. If we're not no.1 then so be it. I still love this country of ours...but I digress. Most of my adult life pitted the US. Ever since Bush Sr. I saw how a new era of Vietnam type wars were comming. But never realized the implications that would ensue. But think your right. If their government goes down they will most certainly bring us down with them. But not only because of the US but also due to our own government. Let hope both our nation get through this upcoming phase with not too much heart aches and bloodshed.

I have never looked upon the U.S.. with envy OR pity. I've always looked upon them as folks. Yup....folks - just like me. Eatin' & sleepin" & workin' hard, trying to eke out a living. I have long ago learned that the gov't is NOT the people and I do hope that the American people don't see the Canadian people as being anything like our government. Our gov't doesn't remotely reflect who I am as a person or as a Canadian and just like in America, as soon as the S.O.B.'s are elected, they don't do what we wanted them to or what they promised us anyway. As far as I'm concerned, Americans are just people who live south of me.

"just like Canadians, better than Canadians". Ya, okay. We 'get' all the same gadgets as you.
Not that it matters, they are all useless anyways.

"If Canada is so great, why'd they leave?"

Trust me, we don't like leaving here. we're glad we're us and not you. LOL.

Well...lemme see. Last year I spent tourist dollars on trips to Cape Cod, Erie Pennsylvania, and New Orleans. Are you suggesting that I stop visiting? You may get comments on the differences between us but hey...beats talking about the weather. If y'all didn't have something to offer...including real friendly folks...we wouldn't bother.

On the other hand, I sure appreciate coming home. Just as Americans do.

I am a Canadian and I do not look at the American people with pity. We are all in the same boat! Our politicians are puppets that dance to the tune set by the international bankster cartel. The whole system needs to be brought down as it no longer works in the interests of the vast majority of people. When I look at the people of the US, I truly hope they have the foresight and the motivation to take back their country and I hope for the same for our people. We both have fundamental problems that involve sovereignty, with the US it goes back to the revolutionary war and the Treaty of Paris. For Canada, we have an absentee landlord that administers this colony (like other british holdings) through a governor general. In either case I don't believe the "monarchy" is going to hand over our "property" easily.

A note on Bill C-6/C-36; I did an analysis of this bill for the Pirate Party a while a go. If this bill passes, any minister involved in the passage into law of this abomination, should be charged with treason along with the Harper unit and afforded the requisite sentence, which I still believe is hanging. It is patently clear that C-6, C-52 and C-36 contain wording that is diametrically opposed to the wording of our alleged constitution and any act to circumvent the alleged constitution is treason.

Cheers - Dave

The thing is we both sold our interests to different countries, mainly to the Chinese.

Ontario currently is a have not province because of the 2008 recession and Southern Ontario's unemployment mostly stems from the manufacturing sector.

Don't you worry, we don't like it one bit either. Nobody sane wanted to vote for Harper. But nobody sane wanted to vote for the liberals either. People wanted to vote for the NPD because Layton wasn't a sellout, even if he was a socialist.

Harper and Ignatieff? Total Bilderberg globalists. Canadians knew that. The vote got divided and it gave Harper a majority... which no sane Canadian wanted.

But yeah Canada is being run by scum too, just like America.
