Everybody varies here as anywhere else. I don’t like how our system is set up and its laws, like the constitution, etcetera, but the people are as good as anywhere else in the world, including the United States. I might fit some stereotypes of Canadians (my top half of my head sometimes seems to separate from the bottom half!), but don’t let me be a representative of a good Canadian. Here, I might appear arrogant, argumentative, and cynical. Most people here, as there, wouldn’t waste their time on a site like this unless we’re talking sex, drugs, or music.

I never met a Canadian that I didn’t like (that I know of).  They are often hard to distiguish from USA Americans. I even had a Canadian girlfriend for a while, earlier in life. Thanks for describing the social/political system.  I wouldn’t be too quick, if I were you, about wanting our system of government over yours, as ours has its own set of problems. 

Of course, however, I find it antithetical, as any USA American would, to have requisite loyalty (even if it is seemingly just nominally so) to a Monarch.


As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.
