Should Canada and the United States of America become one country?

What are the pluses and minuses (if any) of such an eventuality?

    No, I think downsizing is the key! The United States should become four or five countries. One West of the Rocky Mountains, one in the Midwest, one in the South West, one in the South East, one in the Eastern Seaboard.

  • Remember this...

    America is already the 3rd biggest country in land area, canada second.

    America is also 3rd in population, Canada being 36th

    Pros...

    *Possibly could temporarily boost the economy

    *Could cut illegal immigration nominally

    *Could put canada on the map, so to speak

    *Would make neocons and imperialists happy

    Cons...

    *America would have to touch Alaska (sorry if I offended any alaskans; this is all in good humor)

    *Would be extremely hard to govern, especially with American or Canadian government systems

    *incredibly diverse needs (harder for government to suit)

    *becomes an empire, which has not worked in the past

    *makes neocons and imperialists happy

    Perhaps we could share a currency or something, but I feel it would be very dangerous to combine. Besides, both countries would lose a great deal of heritage in the process.

    that would be cool, but the problem is that canada and the US are very different in Politics. Here Canadians are much more Socialist than Americans if you know what i mean, the NDP party of Canada is the third largest party in Canada and ot holds a lot of Parliament seats. Plus there is also the French separatists which is a huge difference as well and they are very important in politics as well.

    they're trying.

    they have already made Europe into the European Union

    and Africa into an African Union

    and they've been trying for the last few years to combine the US, Canada, and Mexico into the North American Union.

    there is a conspiracy theory that eventually every continent will be unionized, and then we will establish a world bank, who will control all of the money, thus controlling the world.
