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.
