A Truly Terrible Idea for Liberty   Leave a comment

A merger of the U.S. and Canada would create an economic superpower with the world’s greatest resource base – Issues & Ideas – MiamiHerald.com.

This article is very well-thought-out and it says some great things, but it fails to take into account the reality. The United States is already too big and the only way our government can manage us is by increasing oppression of individual liberty. I might favor more relaxed markets between the two countries and, for obvious reasons, a more relaxed border crossing, but it is absolutely the worst possible idea that we should become one country.

Instead, maybe Canada’s provinces should join the US states in a discussion of forming a federation that eliminates or at least substantially downsizes the centralized governments to a representative body controlled by the constituent states?
