You've all seen the joke map, where the red states are called "dumbfuckistan" and the blue states, along with Canada, are called "the united states of Canada. I think it would be less a joke, and more a good thing, if the progressive states of the United States of America became one national identity with the progressive country of Canada. And no, I don't speak of annexing the states being Annexed by Canada, or any such nonsense. I talk about a fair and even collabortive nation. That takes the best of the United States, and combines it with a nation that already holds and believes what progressive Americans are striving to acheive in their country. It could be called whatever you wish. United states of North America. Dominion of North America. Whatever. We are all North American. Then the dumb, regressive, bigotted states could have their playland, and Glenn Beck could be their Vice President, Bill O'Reilly their president. If you really think about it on an idealogical level, it make a great deal of sense. The one caveat would be that we'd have to put up electric fences around dumbfuckistan. But if we wait, they'll probably do that for us. What do you think?
