I wonder who our President would be if Canadians also voted.


Proper AH demands you consider the whole history from the 1780s onwards. So, likely no war of 1812 (or at least a different war of 1812), a big mess with Quebec for years and years, and who knows what all else (I know little about Canadian history). Maybe not even a war with Mexico in the mid-1800s, and who knows whether there'd have been a civil war at all.

So by the time you get to 2016, maybe no one ever has even heard the name "Trump."
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Small like the hands of the man who uses it all the time on Twitter?

And yes, I was shaming you for selective quoting of what I'd said, put in a period before my sentence had ended, and changing the meaning.


Yeah, I thought people were using 'sad' because of Trump's usage of the word.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/03/03/47-things-that-have-made-donald-trump-sad-since-he-launched-his-campaign/

That article is over a year old.

Do an internet search for "trump tweets sad" for many more articles and examples.

How long before Golden Boy really steps on it (even more) with a Tweet, and claims his account was hacked by the news media?

What's sad is people who use the
word 'sad' all the time to try and
degrade others. It ends up making
you look like the small one, not
the person you're using it on. It's a
form of public shaming, to build
you up and tear the other person
down. Pity you don't know
what you look like when you use it.

Hey EB, agree with the above? ROTFL

Canada's confederation was July 1, 1867. So in 1780's they would have had to participate in the war. Unlike almost everywhere else in the New World, only Brazil and Canada had a peaceful independence from their mother country. The British parliament felt that the USA would try to take Canada by force after the civil war. Their solution was to create an independent nation, whose borders the USA would respect.

Canada has historically been very small percentage of USA population, even compared to rural USA. Only in recent decades immigration has pushed Canada over 10% of the population of the USA.

Canada as a whole has less people than California. Now Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories, so depending on how many states it was broken into, would determine how much clout it would have in a presidential election.

9.40% 1870

But it's meaningless because you do
it all the time. It's your way of ending
a conversation before it begins. It's
a habit, you can't help it. You're the
superior intellect in every conversation
and you get that across at the start.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Wasn't there an invasion of Canada through What's now Michigan during the war anyway?

Good, let's go with that. Assuming Canada joined the US, how would the smaller population have affected developments? One can see settlers heading north rather than west, for example. Though the Louisiana purchase would still have made sense (if alternate Napoleon also offered it).

Given the smaller population, odds for a Canadian president seem slim, but that depend son the take the rest of the country has of the "new" states.

It's funny how you always discuss
the politics of other countries, but
never your own. Why is that.

To be fair to Nareed, she does say things about Mexican politics, even to the point of taking on sacred icons like Juarez.

Celebrate?

BTW, Juarez was a ruthless dictator and a thug. He'd have gone into oblivion quietly, had Napoleon ]I[ And the US not taken leave of their senses just then. Trivia: the first mass movement in Mexico to call for an end to reelection was led by Porfirio Diaz against Juarez.

Celebrate? Really?


I doubt most people have an opinion on Enrique Nieto.

Not as bad as he might have been.

Or put another way, six hundred trillion times ten to the googol times better than Golden Boy.

But that's damning with faint praise indeed.
