Do you not have moral issues with them, or do you not love their oil?

I don't hate them merely because they are socialists and their leader called our leader names, no. And yes, I welcome their oil.

I don't mind that they are socialist. Lots of places are. Bully to them. I wouldn't approve (morally) of how the government has taken private property, etc. from its citizens, though.

DAMN! WHEN will our corrupt, self-serving politicians wake up to the fact that until we break our gluttonous oil addiction, we'll NEVER be able to sever all ties with Canada!!

My plan is a little easier, just don't go to a fundamentalist Islamic state, at all.
