The problem I have with Americans is that I live next to them. If they decides to start a new world order then we will be the first to be invaded. It's like living right next to a psychopath and you don't know when he's going to try and kill everyone.
1. Average Canadian is richer than Americans.
2. Canadians pay less tax per person than Americans.
3. U.S. students flocking to study in Canada for cheaper fees.
4. Americans are the latest economic refugees, and they’re heading to Canada.
5. Canada: Richer than America and more economically powerful than Europe.
6. Canada Best Place In The World To Raise Children.
7. Canada can fairly claim to be the best-governed country in the world.
8. The most prosperous nation in the Americas, Canada ranks first in personal freedom.
9. Called itself the land of freedom...has Patriot Act, NDAA, gun control, soda size limits, trans fat bans, eminent domain, gay marriage bans, the drug war, highest incarceration rate.

Put in this perspective, I sort of don't care to live in America anymore.

More economically powerful than Europe? The entirety of Europe? Canada? You're having a laugh.

Plus every Canadian was born with the secret of why kids love the taste of cinnamon toast crunch. Americans will never know that.

Canada wouldn't be that assertive with their explanation.

Canadians love bragging about burning down the white house. I do at least.

Yea, I dont remember what I was taught about that, but I think it was that that war was a total ****** for all involved and that the only reason canada might have won was that the american president said he'd take over canada in a week or something like that.

Uhhhh, no... Canada (or the British I guess) actually took land from the United States after a failed pre-emptive strike from them. It was given back in the treaty signed at the end that pretty much said, if you don't **** with us again, we won't burn your big house down and give you back what we are currently occupying.

It's a total cock up of egos mostly. Some Canadians believe that we had our foot on the president's throat, when in reality we just retaliated in a way that showed we could handle ourselves and we weren't going to be a pushover nation. Some Americans believe that the Canada burnt down the white house, and that the war of 1812 was in retaliation to it and the treaty was Canada pleading for forgiveness. In reality the US attacked because they were afraid the British occupying Canada were mounting up for an assault. Citizens got pissed off because those who died in the first assault were civilians in the militia (who the british used as canon fodder) and retaliated with what can be defined as guerrilla tactics and gained a minuscule amount of land to show that we meant business.

I think this is funny, because us here in Europe only hear about the Napoleonic wars. I myself did not hear about the North American war of 1812 until I stumbled upon it as a teenager.

Contrary to popular belief, Canadian militia were not present at the burning of Washington; General Ross and over 4,000 British regulars landed on the eastern coast of Maryland and march inland. They were met by 6,000 American militia near Bladensburg. Although the Americans had more men, they weren't a match for the British regulars, and neither was their commander. The American army fled, and the redcoats marched into Washington.

Man if we got that Andy Jackson victory that occurred after the war was over before we decided so, who knows how long we would have fought with the changed morale. Andy was a badass though.

It really bugs me when Canadians say that they burned down the Whitehouse, when in reality there were almost no Canadian troops involved in the Burning of Washington, the vast majority were Brittish troops who had sailed to America for the war.

Not only that, but Americans also managed to burn down Toronto. Burning down a whole city rather than a one building seems more devastating.

Eh, in general America is sort of the same way as Britain. True, there were no other major wars for us at that time, but it's not really the most thought about war in American society, nor is it a source of national pride for many. It's mainly Canada that views it that way, because they stopped the US from invading them and established that they wanted to be their own thing.
