Let's annex Canada!
While ~40% of Britons want to invade Iraq, another poll shows that
40% of Americans want to annex Canada
Though the article stresses this isn't a manifestation of belief in America's
God-given manifest destiny or desire to dominate the continent, but a gesture of friendship and good will to their friends up north. (Hmmm.. could it be something like "let's liberate our Northern brothers from the shackles of state-funded medicine and gun control and give them citizenship in a real country"?)
Meanwhile, just under 20% of Canadians favour Canada joining the United States.
(Does anyone recall the proposals floating around during the dot-com boom for northern California, Oregon and Washington state to unite with British Columbia, all parties cutting loose Washington DC, the Bible Belt, Quebec and other such liabilities and making a new manifest destiny out of dot-com stock options?)
