Canada is merely a place we drive through to get to Alaska and the place we buy pot seeds from.


Really? So where do Americans get their knowledge of America?

For example, we have universal health care because the Liberals "borrowed" the idea from the CCF (NDP). That's why it's so ironic that Michael Moore eventually abandoned Nader. In the US, the left has nowhere to go and nobody has to listen to them.

Also, when when one the the major parties screws up royally, Canadians can pulverize them (think of the Progressive Conservatives in the early 90s) because we have a few more choices on the ballot.


Canadians won't pulverize anything. Voting for the Liberals isn't pulverizing; it's self-flagellation. What I'm loving right now is that Layton has now called for a referendum to abolish the Senate and Harper says ok let's give it a whirl! Hilarious! Poor Dion is so screwed. I love it.
