I personally take pride in the Canadian forces side-by-side with the Americans and Brits, not only in WWII, but in Iraq the first time around as well.

Simply because of this history alone, I'd give my life to protect my neighbors to the North. Many Canadians sacrificed their own lives for the freedom of the world.

He'* either

a) at work.
b) entertaining Pfamily.

I like canada and all, and really just consider us 2 neighbors where if anything serious happened like a military attack, we'd respond to help each other out. Might as well unite the nations and give us their healthcare, and they can have our money lol....

With allt he conversions we do on this club, and members driving between the countries for meets, we'd make it worth the while on our own

Ahh, don't even get me started about the US. While it is a great country, there are many problems that face our society, that makes it so different from the rest of the world. I don't hate America, but I do disagree with many things that our culture adopts in to their customs.

Yeah, agreed there. I am pretty patriotic but what people in our culture do or support and then the whole accepts, is usually beyond me.

I'm planning on putting my thoughts in to text eventually. But I have to organize all my arguements. There is too much to say.
