But Congress rejected their invitation

2019-01-10 17:26:11 UTC  

And the Brits prevented them from holding such a referendum

2019-01-10 17:26:43 UTC  

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

2019-01-10 17:27:30 UTC  

In 1917 they had accepted $25,000,000 for their share of the West Indies, for perspective

New Brunswick, coolest flag

2019-01-10 17:28:05 UTC  

tfw Denmark won't let us enforce an omnidirectional blockade against Canada

you guys don't even know where Alaska is most of the time...

2019-01-10 17:29:33 UTC  
2019-01-10 17:29:37 UTC  

Wait Alaska is real?

2019-01-10 17:29:44 UTC  

We know where it is, because we've been eyeing the corridor connecting to it for 150 years now

2019-01-10 17:29:48 UTC  

Oh nvm that was Narnia

2019-01-10 17:29:56 UTC  

Just one more piece to the puzzle to go

2019-01-10 17:30:13 UTC  
2019-01-10 17:30:36 UTC

2019-01-10 17:30:43 UTC  

fuckers 😂

2019-01-10 17:31:06 UTC  

you have to admit though... we have a pretty good relationship if we can joke about this

2019-01-10 17:31:08 UTC  

Manifest Destiny is an annexation of peace

2019-01-10 17:31:17 UTC  


2019-01-10 17:31:38 UTC  

you think it would be an invasion?

2019-01-10 17:31:39 UTC  

Day of the Rake when?

2019-01-10 17:31:44 UTC  

This was a serious contingency plan back in the 1930's.

2019-01-10 17:32:01 UTC  

you don't need to frigin invade 😂 silly muricans

2019-01-10 17:32:03 UTC  

just ask

2019-01-10 17:32:13 UTC  

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

2019-01-10 17:32:24 UTC  

as stated here

2019-01-10 17:32:35 UTC  

it's like me saying America is Trump. it's not true, America is filled with Americans

2019-01-10 17:33:09 UTC  

The difference is, a core part of the American identity doesn't revolve around contrarianism against Canada

2019-01-10 17:33:35 UTC  

you mean that cads always dis the states?

2019-01-10 17:33:44 UTC  

i said earlier that it's not as much like that anymore

2019-01-10 17:34:01 UTC  

we have dumbass leaders who keep bitching, but the general population likes murica

2019-01-10 17:34:17 UTC  

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.

2019-01-10 17:34:27 UTC  

don't assume we all are

2019-01-10 17:34:32 UTC  

I know why you're saying that though

2019-01-10 17:34:58 UTC  

Fuck the leafs
