But Congress rejected their invitation
And the Brits prevented them from holding such a referendum
At least they got a cool flag out of it https://sep.yimg.com/ay/yhst-46916591293778/newfoundland-flag-27.gif
much like how the Brits forbade British Columbia from seeking American annexation following the Alaska Purchase, despite BC having been led by an annexationist governor at the time
Also in 1946, we offered $100,000,000 to Denmark if they'd sell us Greenland
In 1917 they had accepted $25,000,000 for their share of the West Indies, for perspective
New Brunswick, coolest flag
tfw Denmark won't let us enforce an omnidirectional blockade against Canada
COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP, CANADA
WE HAVE YOU SURROUNDED
you guys don't even know where Alaska is most of the time...
TFW we should already have annexed Nova Scotia https://jaymans.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/north-american-nations-4-3.png
Wait Alaska is real?
We know where it is, because we've been eyeing the corridor connecting to it for 150 years now
Oh nvm that was Narnia
Just one more piece to the puzzle to go
you have to admit though... we have a pretty good relationship if we can joke about this
Manifest Destiny is an annexation of peace
you think it would be an invasion?
Day of the Rake when?
This was a serious contingency plan back in the 1930's.
you don't need to frigin invade 😂 silly muricans
And yes, it would be, because Canada seemed very unlikely to declare itself a republic or allow US occupation of significant chunks of land at that time
as stated here
it's like me saying America is Trump. it's not true, America is filled with Americans
The difference is, a core part of the American identity doesn't revolve around contrarianism against Canada
you mean that cads always dis the states?
i said earlier that it's not as much like that anymore
we have dumbass leaders who keep bitching, but the general population likes murica
I mean that Canada is so hell-bent on anti-Americanism that they'll more eagerly hitch their wagon to *monarchism* than dare be a republic like the US.
don't assume we all are
I know why you're saying that though
Fuck the leafs
