Are you in favor of a North American Republic?

Just think, a union between Canada, the US, and Mexico. Hell, half the Mexicans live here already. Hell, we'll even let them vote on it instead of shooting them like we usually do. We get better distribution of assets and labor, and an answer to the starvation poverty of Mexico, and a shit load of nice tropical ocean front real estate. Let's do it.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I vote "Yes".

We'll get Canadian-style health care system with this, right?

Let's annex them both.

We have a responsibility to Mexico, we do not need an enemy so close.

I was going to advocate giving them free jumper cables in exchange for their land.

Hell Yeah!
We'd get mad beachfront and it could be run properly. The additional population would probably make social security solvent. I think its necessary to compete with the EU and China.
