    The war of 1812 ….

    Cook, Thompson, the endless settlements that were named after English cities…

    And then came the transcontinental Railroad….

    Some peoples poison is other peoples medicine…

    In reality, we, as in westerners, did lose that war. We could already be Americans if not for that.
    At some point, probably very soon, we will have to do it all over again.

    I sincerely hope it won't be as messy as the secessionist movement in Ukraine is turning out.

    I doubt the rest of Canada will be pleased to see the only contributors seceded without putting up a fight. Reply With Quote
