See Canadians, this kiwi here says you are continuing relations with a terrorist state and I thought Canadians were better? Isn't that what you say? You are a benevolent people who accepts people from where ever and your multiculturalism is your strength and you are peace keepers of the world? How are you benevolent by making deals with a terrorist group?
many more winter in the southern states. Our tourism industry is also deeply dependent on Americans . So you are out to lunch in my opinion .
And we should be pals with them based on their being a Superpower?
China is the last country I want closer ties with, "superpower" or no.
Maybe culturally it's going through a shitshow, but overall... *shrug*
They can hate Americans just as easily from behind a wall, so why bother to build the wall?
America has supported tyrants and dictators, started multiple wars, and commits first strikes to create war, once the greatest crime.
Come on! You complain about them being loud, arrogant, ignorant, stupid, what else? And you still let them in? And you still go there? Fudge me dead mate!
Canada should just walk away from the $1.5 billion in trade that crosses the border each and every day.
you haven't read/heard the opinion of all 37 million Canadians
But you know what I find REALLY interesting. When it's Democrat America doing the kind of shit you're whining about, your kind are actually rather subdued about it. Seems only Republican America gets ya'll triggered.
seeing as how Australia has been caging illegals for at least 20 years.
Maybe not all but majority definitely.
And that's another thing, in a democracy like Canada's, the minority will have to respect what the majority want regardless of whether what the majority wants is good or bad! That is how a functioning democracy works! It is this functioning democracy that made Canada the prosperous nation that it is where people from all over the world can call home.
If you are better, then yes, you would do that. Again, what is more important? Money or peace?
There will always be a few who keeps denying and defying it. Sigh.
But if Canadians like you don't like China, you can still build stronger ties with your former colonial master:
I don't know what Democrat means or Republican or Conservatism or Liberalism or Left or Right. Please keep those words to yourself as I have no interest in those things!
Do you feel the same about Brexit? Do the minority Remainers just need to shut the f*ck up and go along with the majority vote?
There's times my family has pissed me off too. Should I just sever all ties with them too? Even though I'm sure I've pissed at least some of them off myself.
You're the twit that suggested Canadians would love to be Australia's neighbours so CLEARLY you have an opinion on Australia too.
So you came here just to stir up shit in stuff that's none of your goddam business? Is that why you're here then?
You come in here, a non-Canadian, to stir shit up with our neighbours
and then tell me how to f*cking discuss the topic with you? In a CANADIAN public forum? Who the f*ck do you think you are?
You're trying to paint a bullshit strawman right here by arguing what country Canadians would rather share a border with.
Hate is the wrong word. Hate is absolute with no grey areas.
I don't know of anyone who hates Americans.
Don't you have guards already? Just ban them from coming in. I'm sure they will respect that.
Are you referring to China? China does not do that! And if you don't like China, you have the EU, the Commonwealth, CANZUK if it becomes a reality? There really are a lot of choices.
The U.S. military drops a bomb on average every 12 minutes.
The U.S. military burns on average 10million gallons of fuel daily.
As we communicate, the U.S. military is actively bombing 7 predominately Brown/Muslim countries.
Why? They are building infrastructure and developing countries all over the world, I don't understand what your problem is with them.
And by the way, according to pewresearch, Canadians have a more favorable opinion of China than the US. Proof that you are indeed a minority.
Remember, Canada is a democracy so when the time comes, you and your fellow minority will have to respect what the majority wants!
You never know.... Rebellion? Secession? Civil war? What are you going to do when that day comes?
Good enough reason to let them go. Would you live with someone who scares you?
That's good! I like that attitude! It will be easier to let go of them then.
There is, yes.
Three words - human rights violations.
And that's not counting all the other reasons to dislike and totally distrust China.
Actually, not true.
What pew research poll showed China better than the US in approval in Canada?
If I was in the minority, then yes, you're right, and I'd not like it but I'd go with it. But since it's likely that you're wrong about China...
I don't know, I won't know until the day comes. For now I just continue on continuing on, which includes worrying for my US friends and family and keep hoping that the US comes back to its senses and stops the bullshit it's doing now.
Been there, done that and walked away then, too. I've let the US go as much as I, personally, an amble to, by refusing to go there and buying anything but US when I have a choice. But the issue is, we DON'T have choices sometimes.
Honestly, I think if it came down to it, Canada WOULD walk away from the US if things got that bad. They're bad now, yes, but it's not to the level of so bad there is no changing/going back. There are enough people in the US who actually dislike how things are now that it can be changed back to sense. Cutting off our noses to spite or faces, or shooting ourselves in the foot, won't do squat at this point. Sometimes you need patience and this is one of those times.
