Canada (minus Quebec) can be annexed to the US without major political shift. A referendum might be organized and if properly funded would result in a "democratic" victory. Canada could help the US " -- Increase its strategic depth -- Give access to water / energy resources --Increase population somewhat . Very important now the China is rising. --Stimulate the economy as the US invests a lot to bring the pathetic Canadian infrastructure up to par with the US. US would help with : -- Superior political system, business practices, infrastructure, educational institutions, efficient private heath care, system -Free Canada from the "Queen" and Canadians from the image of cowards who fled / engaged in treason rather than fight the English -- Prestige & power of the United States of America and its proud history. -- Solving the Quebec "problem" once and for all by bombing the crap out of them. -- Nice WEATHER.
