Oh yeah? Pretty big claim. Care to elaborate on either that, or the Demoratic party in question?

Perhaps due to the fact it is not a very big country, or people aren't all that excited for be Canadian. I have never understood why people tend to blame America for a strong sense of Nationalism, when multiple European countries show the same during soccer games. Why are they never questioned? I don't know why anyone is questioned. I will say this - Americans are probably defensive of it due to the fact that just about the entire rest of the world seems to have an issue with us, even our allies. And the kicker is that these countries with a grudge, aren't far better than America in terms of numerous things such as - gas prices, access to goods, access to one's choice of cold, seasonal or year round hot territory, etc. Mexico got all hot territory, Canada got a tundra, and we got the happy middle. As result, America sucks? Ha, ok.

The majority on non-Americans that I have spoken with say its not the sense of nationalism or jealousy, its the typical American taking all that we have for granted. I can easily see how that would bother non-Americans, and Americans alike. I have noticed it in abundance and it rubs me the wrong way. Every time I see a 300lbs person on the internet/news/etc complaining that a buffet restaurant refused to continue serving them, I think of how this must look to countries like France, Germany or Japan.

And I haven't ever met many Canadians that have a strong sense of nationalism. There is a line between being patriotic and being nationalistic and many Americans seem to cross it.
Alot like Canadians cross the line into the US ALL THE TIME. If it was so great...they'd stay there.

Same goes for Americans. Americans go to Canada just as often, if not more than Canadians come to America.

Re: Democrats

I'd just like to see practical common-sense be the overriding factor in the political process. Unfortunately that's just not going to happen any time soon.


I love professional-wrestling.

Show me something that backs that statement up! What are we going there for? Overpriced products? Shitty Healthcare? Have you ever been to Florida in the winter? The whole fucking state is filled with shitloads of Canadians.

I'm not about to try back up that statement, because I'm fairly certain more Canadians are making the border-crossing. But we do have a thriving tourism market, particularly when it comes to the outdoors (hunting, fishing, etc., etc.,). There's no need to be a dick about it.
