You really don't want to bring up the topic of money in a USA versus Canada discussion. I'd be willing to bet that Manhattan alone generates more revenue than any single Canadian province in the space of a year. I'm confident it generates more revenue than any other single city in the world.

Jeez, Choopies effort to shut these ignorant morons up has failed miserably.

Sandman, how is the United States more free than Canada?

Ajreaper, you think Canada doesn't put any money into the space program? Last time I checked, the Space Shuttles Robotic Arm had the words "Canada" and Canada's flag pasted across it. We might not put as much as the U.S. does into space, but atleast we contribute all that we can.

Either way, we ranked higher on the "Quality of Life" Scale by the U.N. then the United States did, so that pretty much sums it up there.

What?

Edit- Are you speaking French? (No, you are speaking English...so much for Canada's higher edumacation plan, lol...just kidding...I'll never make a serious insult to anyone's intelligence)

Edit- And is weed decriminalized in Canada?

Edit- If people paid that $.25 for Advil and soldiers bought their bullets, then they could afford to put more into the space program?

Edit- Sure, you may have a higher quality of life...but who has more money?

[FI], it's fixed.

Also, Marijuana has been de-criminalized for MEDICAL use. However, I want this stupid law to be thrown in the trash. Morphine (spelling?) is stronger than Marijuana, so the "Marijuana gets rid of the pain" excuse doesn't cut it.

Hmmmm, it doesn't matter which country has more money. Were a smaller country with 1/10 of the population. Of course the U.S. will have more money. Both countries Gross Domestic Product per capita is relativly close too.

I certainly hope you're not including me in the "ignorant morons" generalisation. If you are, you should know better.

You honestly take the UN's opinions seriously? They're a clogged bureaucracy who've grossly outlived their usefulness.

Regarding freedom, from firearms to medical care to what we show on television and play on the radio, people of the United States are more free to do and think as they wish than they are anywhere else in the world. That is my observation, garnered from having visited, lived, and/or served in about a dozen countries spanning five continents.

I believe that sums up everything I was going to say about the UN...

Oh, and, to the original premise of this thread...

You can't just buy the power of the Armed Forces of the United States of America. If you could, a lot of countries would. A great deal of our defense budget goes into research and development of technologies we don't make available on the world market.

When you say the "States isn't that powerful", you're talking about the Armed Forces who completely embarrassed the 4th largest standing army in the world. Twice.

The only real reason why America has a economy is Oil, that you get from Saudies and Canadians. Our hard working people jerk are the reason why you have what you have. Hey wait a minute Iam on to something.

Lets all stop buying american products. No more cheesy movies. Wait some american products are made elsewhere, like Canada then sold back to us for higher the cost. You guys ow us not the other way around.

Do you now that california buys some of its power from British Columbia.  

How do you define ammerica: Money thats all. You are not free and we are right on top of you. Where you go we go. And that sucks.

So you are blaming us because your people are too ignorant to realize that they are getting jipped? LMBO!!! That is hilarious!

Remember when the powergrid went down in the US? Power went down in Canada too...so...what's your point? We get power from you and you get power from us...? What's the problem.

**edited**e... you are being ignorant. I suggest you don't dig yourself farther into a hole... I'd hate to see you get burned when people like OldSoldier, SandMan, and others (myself when I get back from work) really start in...

How is the geographical relationship relevant at all?

Oil is a major driving factor behind the world economy. But the US economy is much broader than that. You embarrass yourself and your country by claiming otherwise.

Stop riding party lines and actually think about what you're saying.

Everyone here in Canada feels like this way. I bet if war broke out here American troops would be called in to Protect the oil resourses in Alberta. Americans listen up mind your own business. If that did happen And most of the troops went to those locations youlll have lots more problems. And the truth about you would be revealed. Pay back is a **edited**. I am Canadian!




Put simply, you've got no idea what you're talking about.
Canada leans on the United States for a great many things and has for a long time.

Who keeps a watchful eye on the entire coast of North America? The United States does, about 90 miles from where I'm sitting in Cheyenne Mountain. You may have heard of it. It's called NORAD and Canada needs it just as much, if not more, than the US does.

I'm not arguing that the USA is superior to Canada; mostly because such an argument is pointless due to the immeasurable nature of the subject. The two nations are different and they lean on each other in a great many ways.


So you know where the Stargate is? lol

Canadians are taxed much more than we are here in the U.S., so that's how they can get "free" asprin in the hospital. Like Sandman nothing is ever free.

To state my final opinion, I think the United States and Canada are equal. In my mind, they're like brothers. Both have good sides and bad, but they have the same general standards and origins which makes them so alike. Canada is like the understanding, little brother which thinks more than it acts ands decisions are more reasonable. The United States is the older, stronger, and larger brother who is protective and which others looks up to.

Now, can we stop all the fighting and complaining about which country is better? (that includes hijacking the word "ignorant" too )

We pay our taxes yes and thats why we have Health care. So when we do go to the hospital we dont have to worry about that .25 charge.
