    Canada is very sad. If they have not legalized same-sex marriage yet, they are on the verge of it. Many are openly anti-American. Religion is weak. Canadian law has closed churches and imprisoned preachers for preaching that sodomy is a sin. There is little or no military capacity. Socialized medicine has been a great failure and they are forcing American companies to give them unfair prices on medicine under threat of priracy. What has happened is that the American consumer has had to fund the research and development of new drugs for Canada because Canada will not pay that part of the cost of medicine.

    Years ago I used to go to Canada to attend a Shakespeare festival. It is a beautiful country but I would not set foot in it today. If I visited Niagara Falls, I would stay on the American side even though the Canadian side is more beautiful. However, the air is freer and cleaner on the side of the USA.

    Yep. A friend I went to school with in Vancouver used to talk of "going back home to Canada" for school breaks. She meant Ontario.
