    Who wants to buy a country?

    Auction Announcemet-

    A country is for sale by auction. All bidders welcome but invited are China, Japan, USA and the EU. The country for sale is
    Canada
    A huge nearly uninhabited country with resource potential that's barely been scratched. One of the few parts of the world that can improve as global warming progresses. Upside- unlimited.
    Bidding will be in US dollars, paid to each Canadian. Bidding starts at $1M.


    Strange idea, right? Strange but kinda neat to consider. But what if the money wouldn't go to Canadians? What if it was to go to England because Canada was part of the Kingdom?

    I dont know if anybody can afford Canada at that price. Greenland maybe, Canada? Thats steep. You got to really want it.

    Just a number.
    Point is, it's a ridiculous concept in this day and age. What was Trump thinking offering to buy Greenland from someone other than Greenlanders? Do you really not see what's wrong with that idea? The Prime Minister of Denmark does. So does the Queen of Denmark. Did you know Trump canceled an audience with the Queen over this? Guy's deluded.

    Rather than buy it, I say trade California or New York for it.

    Its hilarious how liberals still think there was collusion between Trump and Russia or think that Trump and Putin are big friends all because Trump said that Putin was a good leader one time.

    Talk about buying Greenland have been going on for decades by more than one country. Immediately after WWII the US gave serious thought to the idea and a dollar amount based on gold bullion was floated.
