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.

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

so sick of all of these people having **** fits and waving their patriotic dicks around.

The war of 1812 shouldn't have even happened, it was a textbook example of how NOT to fight a war.

The US got ****** up, the british got ****** up, canada was still british, EVERYONE blundered around at almost every major point of the conflict.

There is NOTHING to be proud of from this fight.

In this post and comment section we have an exceptional example of one of the more unfortunate side effects of nationalism.(the original concept not any modern political view)

History is written by the survivors.

Alright I see this so many times; and let me see if I have this right. Canadians (some) are bragging about burning a building of country that wasn't even half of what it is today, In a war that was between the U.S. and GB. Two things here:

1. If GB (or Canada since they want to take "glory') won then why did they take the U.S. back under their control? (Maybe I'm misunderstanding something)
2. Do any of you Canadians or Brits honestly think you could stand a chance against the full might of the U.S. Military today?

Burning a building doesn't destroy a country. So stop pretending to be so hardcore for fighting (and still losing to in the end) what was essentially the east coast of a developing country just because you set a some things on fire..but hey if that's all you have to hang your hats on...then maybe we as Americans should let you guys brag about it...

This whole thing kind of reminds me of the Cubs (MLB team for those who may not be familiar)...their fans always brag about how great a team they are, but they haven't won a championship since 1908. Not saying Brititan hasn't won a war since, but we all know when it comes to America you can't win if you could there wouldn't be an America to begin with (see Revolutionary War). I don't care about specifics at this point, I'm sure I'm missing spots here and there, but we all know the U.S. has the best military around. Sorry if you can't deal with that.

Red thumb me all you want if it makes you feel better

They didn't. Canada didn't exist as a country.

The Brits burned down the white house and Andrew Jackson humiliated them and killed their Napoleonic war hero in New Orleans after the peace treaty was signed.We'll call it a draw__

That isn't humiliating, it just makes Andrew Jackson a coward for killing when a man believed they were at peace

America:
>The first white house is burnt down.
Canada:
Has Quebec.

Whose the real inner here?

I'm from Canada, and I can tell you that we didn't gain our independence until 1867. That means that in 1812, Canada and England were essentially the same thing. The British army was the one occupying and defending the Canadas at that point so Canada can't take a lot of credit for it.

The way I see it is that there were 2 winners, one relatively unaffected party, and one loser in that war. The US won in the sense that the things that the war was started over ended. Canada won the war by preventing the US from invading. GB was relatively unaffected because that war meant virtually nothing to them. Finally, we have the Native Americans or Indians (whichever your prefer). They lost that war. In that war they lost much of the land that they had held onto in the area between the US and Canada as well as one of their greatest leaders. Just my views.

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.
User avatar #14 to #13 - DmOnZ (11/02/2013) [-]
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.

Could someone enlighten me about this war in the USA? i might have missed it in the history class or we may have not been taught about it. i remember being taught about the war where Americans fought for their independence in the 1770's and the civil war in the 1880's if i remember correctly. in exchange i can share some information on Finland's history if you're interested. I like history and i like sharing history with some people who are interested in it.
