Courtesy of James, Jillian at Sadly, No! has figured out the solution to both the US and Canada's problems: Buy A Progressive. We're clearly unwanted in the US and badly needed here in Canada.
There were many amusing schemes like this on the internet in 2004, including a movement to make Vermont Canada's 11th province.
I especially love Sadly, No!'s reference to the monorail, one of The Simpsons' finer moments.
