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.

haha, I am farther on the right and I am well aware of the flaws of the policies of those on the right, but clearly you are fully on the left and are too ignorant to belive that anyone can have a succesful idea other than a democrat, please stop posting on this board. and that would be perfect your canadian american country would be communist china, and the RW america would be hong kong.

I don't think only Democrats have successful ideas. For instance, Bush had the idea to kill a bunch of people in the middle east, and he was VERY successful at that.

I'm sure that this isn't a scenario that sits well with people who WOULD be citizens of dumbfuckistan. I'm curious about what people who are more progressive would think on the mattter.

I'm not a Democrat, by the way.

Seeing as it would be one nation, the government that all of the people select, I suppose. or, if you mean who... the new country, or dumbfuckistan... I'd think that the prudent decision would be to NOT let it stay with the people who seem to be obsessed with killing people in far off lands.

you constant critisism of the right shows that your on the other end, and I dont know how else to make it any clear to you except for the example of china and hong kong, that a free trade limited government influence can be very succesful. and please i did not critisize you for anything other than your extremly critical post, America is torn between two parties, and as long as there is no third party they have to work together you apparantly have no hope for any bipartisanship.

We're not going to make it that easy for the bigots.

With any luck, the bigger hurricanes and tornados caused by GW will wipe them out.

I am not in line with Republican ideals, no. Does that mean I'm a democrat? Think carefully before you answer.

And do you not think that there are nations with Free trade ideals, that also take social responsiblity for their people? You assume that "socialism" iis the same as communism, and that social concience and capitalism cannot coexist?

Don't bleat about bipartisanship. It's not an ideal of the Republicans, so why should it be an ideal of anyone else?

It could, however, increase a superpower status... and for one with an international concience.

So the red states get the nuke and coal plants and you guys get the wind and solar. Sounds good to me. We will imminently start building power lines to supply utopia. No worries, we will send along the bill shortly.

Even Canada doesn't want those French speaking assholes

There are a number of assholes in Quebec... but it isn't because they speak french. In the progressive country merge, bigotry wouldn't be the ideals that the society would stand on.

Why would Canada want our debt?
you make a good point. That would be a challenge. How would debt distrubution work in a case like that?

Canada has it's own debt... albeit not as crushing as the US national debt at this time. I suppose that would be something that would have to be taken in to account, wouldn't it?

It would be awfully irresponsible for the sane, responsible people to leave such things in the hands of morons, wouldn't it?

kind of like leaving guns lying around for junior to play with.

no but hong kongs succes is due to low tax rates. the subway system in hong kong is completly privatized and it is rediculous how clean they take care of it. my ideas are mostly libertartian, and i belive in privatizing everything, IE paying a toll for the roads you used instead of paying a tax on gasoline, and you cannot say there are no differences between communism and socialism.

I'm NOT saying there is no difference between communism and socialism. That was my point.
