    In all seriousness our history is quite a bit different.
    Guns and violence are much less a part of our past.
    I like to tell people that Canadians fight the wars that are justifiable (for the most part).
    Not Vietnam or Iraq for instance.
    Our World War 2 started when Hitler invaded Poland In 1939 a fact I have to regularly remind my American friends and colleagues who think WW2  started November 7th 1941!

    Having said all that, its foolish to say that we as a country have not benefited by having our "Brethren" to our south being the world super power.
    It has saved our economy countless $$ knowing you guys have our back.
    Our Country also has it share of right wing wack jobs also.
    Just not anywhere near the percentage of them compared to the electorate here.
    I also have this theory about the American people as a whole.
    Basically I truly believe that as bad and crazy as the times and some people get the, "True American", the decent, the fair, the diverseness,the brilliant, the compassionate, THE GOOD AMERICANS will always make a come back and over come and the world will see the greatness again.
