Default Canadaaaa for Sale; Only $33,739,000,000,000 approx.

I've heard this tossed around by certain crazy, unpatriotic Canadians. They want to sell Canada to the United States. They figure that our cultures and economies are so similar and integrated that it really makes little difference whether Canada is sovereign or not. So they propose that each and every Canadian citizen receives $1,000,000 American from the United States government. This money would be placed in special accounts, and would be tax free, forever. Actually, maybe some of that should be in gold, but we'd work out the specifics.

This would cost the United States a little less than $34 trillion (with a T).

In exchange, Canada belongs to the USA, fully and completely. All Canadians become American citizens, all Canadian provinces and territories become states. This would cost every current American roughly $110,000 each, but that would gradually be taken away from you through taxes for a few generations.

So let's say Canada is for sale. You buyin', America?


PS, before any of you say "We'd just invade you" like idiots, keep in mind Canada is part of the British Commonwealth, you would be starting World War III/nuclear war.

That might work, but perhaps a real number would be more appropriate.

If I were Canadian I'd definitely be down. **** it, a million bucks is a lot of money. As an American I think it's a stupid idea. We get along just fine as two separate nations.

Terrible. As an american I would never support this. What exactly do tax payers get in return for our $110,000? Do we get the property or jobs of these Canadians which we just gave millions of dollars a piece?

No. If that was the price, that would be the best investment in the history of the United States. Think about all the land and natural resources you would have. Its like having half the board on monopoly.

I'd rather be assimilated into Canada, they don't have the Anti-Christ running their country.

If this would ever be close to going down, I'd marry a Canadian chick faster than a blink of an eye. That'd mean I'm a citizen and would get me a cool million dollars.
