WASP culture is American Culture - Queen Ann
What a superpower we would be...
The Canadian provinces still have a standing invitation to join the union, and thus do not need the approval of congress to join. Fun fact.
If the Pig War had popped off, Alaska would have perhaps be connected via Yukon and British Columbia.
Huh. Never knew that (about the standing invitation for the provinces to join).
Didn’t we try to invade them twice
@Wood-Ape - OK/MN The area my grandparents are from in Poland has street signs in the original native language
Also had a “war plan red” in the 30’s
Yeah we did
Yeah, I read about that (War Plan Red), too.

Quebec is kind of not really a part of our cultural continuum (as strongly obviously)
"1775 WILL COMMENCE AGAIN1"
There's no meaningful difference between someone from Saskatchewan and someone from North Dakota
There definitely is between someone from Upstate New York and Quebec
Definitely a language thing, although there's a bit of the differing "origin myth" thing too
Yeah, I honestly think that the long-term future of English-speaking (White) North Americans is probably going to be within a single polity.
yeah, I'm inclined to agree
Thanks Nemets, I'll have to check it out
@Nemets I'll read it, might balance out what I got from Beard.
A federation authoritatively united in outward policy but with a good measure of regional and local autonomy would be most desirable imo
There was historically a lot of movement between the US and Canada anyway. For example, my great-grandfather was from an English speaking part of Quebec called Estrie. Moved to Connecticut in his teens, however, his family moved there from Massachusetts during the revolution. Hard to delineate.
My automated Reddit trolling bot is coming along quite nicely
When you field test it, be sure to get us screen shots
I can explain what it does for those who don't know
Right, and in international dealings the most immediate level is White North America which would justify a superstate united in military, trade policy, borders, etc
@ophiuchus Yeah, it all started with a mass exodus of United Empire Loyalists, who headed up that way after losing the war and being expelled: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Empire_Loyalist
Retaining strong local autonomy
Yep! They were definitely torries.

Salt mining has come a long way
I could respond to multiple people in minutes with minimal effort
I'm picturing @Jacob in a room, struggling to keep his nostrils above the rapidly rising level of his big brains as they make their way toward the ceiling...
The question is; is there a way to get the balance right and have a vast continental state without stepping on local toes or are the libertarians right that any state will expand itself maximally
Once I get the basics down, I'm going to see if I can develop automated paraphrasing technology that will give me different paraphrased version of the counterarguments each time to make it less noticeable
