    To suggest that the two nations are similar enough to make sense of such a union is a deep insult to any American.
    Oh, get over it. Not like you were alive back then.

    What the **** kind of "irreconcilable cultural differences" do we have with CANADA, for ****'s sake? It's not like they're cannibals or they behead people.

    Stop acting like you were throwing tea in the harbor. Anyone who had anything to do with founding either country has been dead for quite some time.

    So what? It's an important part of my heritage as an American, and as a descendant of some of the great men who participated in that conflict. It is part of the history that has shaped and defined the culture in which I live today, and which makes this culture different from the other culture to the north, which was founded on cowardice and treason.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Wow, you're a descendant of Revolutionary War fighters? So am I. I don't act like I had something to do with it.

    What are these "irreconcilable differences"? I'm not advocating the OP's premise, but I find your opinion ridiculous.

    I don't see this happening, but I suppose I could see a province or two break off from Canada and apply to be a state. I'm assuming this is possible in Canada since Quebec threatens independence every few decades.

    I generally like Canada and the only thing I truly hate there is buying gas. Two conversions--very bad.

    Driving in Ontario is awful. They generally will give you plenty of room to merge, which is great, but they expect it back to such a degree that they will cut you off with nary a blinker.

    I suppose the difference in attitudes is the difference between one who believes in and supports the ideals on which this nation was founded, and one who opposes these principles and is ashamed of them.

    That's a wonderful load of gibberish that doesn't even come close to answering my question. Have you ever BEEN to Canada?
