This has a negative affect of me because the Canadian's act different than American's. We are not like them. Were quieter, less violent, more caring, not as arrogant, different and better as said in American Lite. Everything American's are, Canadian's aren't. Not everyone has the same opinion has everyone else.

American's pay attention to us only when we are bellowing wit rage. When we want them to pay attention to us they don't.

Canadian's are ranked near the bottom of G8 and NATO nations when it comes to defence spending, and spend next to nothing on foreign aid. No body in Washington gets up in the morning and thinks about how to take over Canada.
