Larry... First, I doubt the U.S. is worried too much about one or
even a few uptight Canadians who get(s) upset because one of those
U.S. citizens (me) used common logic to derive a possibly incorrect
assumption. It would make sense to me that since Canada does
have socialized medicine, that the related costs would be taxpayer
funded too. Well, if they're not, I'm wrong. So be it.
I'm not going to kiss your ass because I am wrong. As a U.S.
citizen, I've not been very excited about many of the decisions
Canada has made as a country in the last couple of decades.
Since I live in a bordering state (Michigan) to Ontario, I have been
to Canada many times in the past. I am now boycotting
your country for several reasons that have to do with changing
the conservation and law-abiding gun ownership laws. I have
known some people in Canada that I think are awesome, and
that much has not changed, but I'm not going to step one foot
into that country until the government starts to make some sense.
I'm not too certain about whether or not the timber subsidies do
or do not exist, but I have no reason to believe that our experts
made them up for political or other reasons.
As far as the U.S. standing alone, we never stand alone. That's
why we are called the United states. We stand together.
We have many allies, including Canada, in the big picture.
I hope we can continue this "oneness", despite our differing
views on matters, but if we can't - I am not concerned
knowing very well what our country is capable of.
In conclusion, If I am wrong, than I apologize for being
wrong, but I am not going to apologize for anything else,
knowing damned well that I didn't offend you or your country
any more than the man on the moon.
