I was just reminded of the Canada World Domination website which outline Canada’s plot to take over the world. I especially enjoyed the hate mail section. I think my favorite points made in the hate mail section are (to which I reply):
“Canada has no resources, everything in Canada, such as your gasoline and iron, come from other countries, most of whom are allied with the United States. ”
No resources? We have clean-water, tonnes of lumber, oil in Alberta, excess electricity to name a few. I’m sure we could survive as a nation without any outside resources.
“As far as I can gather you pretty much leech off of the USA’s abilities and resources”
Then you gather wrong. We have the ability and the resources. It’s too bad a large portion of the ability moves to the states because of the all-mighty dollar.
“There’s going to be 300 million Americans waiting to kill the Canadian species and will most likely be successful.”
I didn’t know Canadian was now considered a species 🙂
“we have lost like no major wars or even small wars against Germany, Britain, USSR, which are powerful countries and you think a weak, dumb semi-country like yourself can stop us.”
Did someone forget Vietnam? I realize that was never classified as a “war” but as a “conflict” but still. Or how about the War of 1812?
There are more but I will end there. Some of the hate mail is pretty funny while some of it is just ignorant (like the couple of excerpts I listed above). I don’t think all Americans believe these things but sometimes your Nationalism (combined with lacking a sense of humour) in certain individuals scares me. 🙂
