I wish we, Canadians, could vote in the US election.

Yes, I wish we, Canadians, could vote in that election. Though Kerry carries the Democratic Party flag, he still looks Conservative to many of us. Bush meanwhile is off-scale to the right and therefore wouldn't get much attention at all. Americans are afraid of the very word "liberal" while we, Canadians embrace that word and our winning political party calls itself the Liberal Party. Some parties here are even trying to be or look openly more liberal than the Liberal Party.

Kerry has done his best to keep the label "liberal" away from him. Yet, he's the one the majority of Canadians would go for. Bush doesn't have much of a prayer here.

After all is said and done we, Canadians, want the US to succeed in whatever form, as we piggyback right on top of it in more ways than pure geography would suggest. It it sinks we sink. Yet, we're glad there is a border between the two of us. We'd like to think we have a better society here.

May Kerry win and move the US closer to our social norms.

TP.

Well, gee, I sure wish that I could vote in the Canadian election! Wouldn't that be great?

But, alas, I'm not a Canadian citizen. Isn't it a bitch how that works?

I wish Canada and the United States would open up the border and become one nation- not because I as a citizen of the USA feel any great need to expand our borders, but I've been to Canada 3 times in my life, and each time it was a learning experience, to say the least. It would seem that it would benefit both countries to unite and grow in a similar direction.

And I'm sure a majority of Americans have no interest in becoming Socialist!

On second thought, with so many Kerry supporters here, I'm not too sure about that last statement.

I always thought Canada seemed like a nice place to live, nice people, clean, pretty cities and the like. I wanted to get a summer house on the water in Nova Scotia, but Floyd hated "foreigners" and wouldn't let me do it.

You could have Queen Elizabeth II back as the Head of State


Why don't the Canadians, Australians and so on ditch her when they have so many wonderful queens of their own?

Well, come to Ontario. We'll get you a nice place (for the right price ) by the lake in the Muskoka (North of Toronto).

She's irrelevant here.

I was hoping to see Dame Edna's name on the ballot here in Pennsylvania, but alas, it wasn't there!

More orless. Except for those who want to make more $$$, and who can blame them?

Why would I, as a Canadian, want to vote in the US election? It is of interest to me in a sense, but it's not really.. if that makes sense.
