    Lightbulb Is Canada just the 51st state of U.S.A.?

    Is Canada so synonimous with the United States that it simply should just be considered one big 51st state?
    After all, their economy depends almost entirely on jobs with American companies, and trade with America -- whether that be cattle & foodstuffs, machinery, even pharmaceuticals? Are they an independent country/ or highly dependent upon their neighbor to the south and west? Weren't jobs outsourced to Canada long before the term outsourced was used, and before it became a key component of NAFTA?

    That depends on what part of Canada, or the US, you're talking about. On the one hand, the cultural and ethnic link between Anglo-Euro Canada and the US (particularly the Northeast/Upper Midwest) is very strong. Many English (i.e. non-French Euro) Canadians have family relatives and/or ancestry in the USA.

    However, three factors mitigate against the idea of Canada as the 51st state:

    1.) Virtually all English Canadians ascribe to a sort of petty nationalism where they define themselves as 'not American'. This is a legacy of the country's pro-British, anti-American Revolution heritage. An annexation of Canada by the US would definitely not be palatable from an English Canadian perspective, as long as this petty-nationalist sentiment is so universal in the country.

    2.) The French factor: French Canadians are 1/4 of the country's population, control a signifcant percentage of its territory and resources, and based on their language (most of them don't speak English at all) and distinct history, they are definitely not similar to Americans. They're not a very good candidate for the 51st state.

    3.) The 'Hispanic'/immigration factor: Although Canada has suffered from a plague of Asian immigrants in recent years, there are virtually no 'Hispanics' in Canada. (I use that term loosely because, racially, 'Hispanics' range from pure European ancestry, to completely Black or Native/Mongoloid.) By contrast, the US is being overwhelmed by a vast flood of Hispanic immigrants, with no end in sight. The more 'Hispanic' the US becomes, the more unlike Canada it becomes, and this is also obvious to English Canadians.

    I guess the short answer to your question 'is Canada just the 51st state' is 'not really'. It would probably be more productive, at least for the foreseeable future, to focus on cross-border cooperation between white nationalists and cultural perservationists in Canada and the US, then on trying to promote political absorption of Canada by the US.

    Actually America is pretty dependent on our exports. So that would make them one of our provinces if anything. hehe

    No, we can't ... that is why Canadians have chosen to immigrate to the USA and breed out the Americans. I am one of those who have chosen to do so.
