Default Walling Off Canada

Surely, no sane legitimate political candidate would actually suggest walling off Canada from the US, right?

Enter Scott Walker.

The Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker said on Sunday that building a wall on the US northern border with Canada was a legitimate issue for us to look at.

To be bluntly honest, Scott, if you actually became president we'd help you build it.

Maybe it's a fairness issue? People want a wall on the Mexican border, so to not be racist, we have to build one at the Canadian border too?

Yeah, I got nothin'. :/

They'd have to build a wall around Hawaii and Alaska, too, you know.

I think, though, that if they want to get all silly about it, then the best solution is a dome for the 48 contiguous states, a dome each for Hawaii and Alaska, and a dome for each of its territories. Sure, it will make the resulting air pollution suffocate those inside, and make them die from heat exhaustion, and it doesn't factor in the feelings of the American expats, but at least it keeps the unwanted out, right?

Maybe he's just afraid of godless anti-white anti-Christian pro-gay liberalism trickling down from up there?

Ok I tried to think of some clever witticism, with a Space Balls or Idiocracy reference, and failed. What do you say about something so stupid???

Oh no see it makes perfect sense because if he gets elected, how many people are going to want to flee for the border? Walling us off is an attempt to keep us in, not to keep Canadians out

not to mention that lets face it, walls as an anti-immigration method haven't generally worked very well in the past. (for all the Berlin Wall was feared, it's generally accepted that somewhere between 100-300 people died trying to cross. Out of around 5,000 who tried.) The less said about the wall between Isreal and Palestine, the better. ( as often happens, all the wall really achieved was making it harder for people who legitimately needed to cross. ( the wall was built inside the West Bank, and there was more than one farmer with part of their property on the other side.)) the same applies to various attempts at walling off the southern border of the US. ( they rarely work to stop the people smugglers, and tend to simply irritate people.)

Walker wants to build a wall on the Canada-U.S. border? Make sure it's good and tight so none of that Alberta oil leaks into the U.S. (we need it back home). Build it watertight, continuing down the border in the Great Lakes. After all, you guys stupidly allowed the Asian carp to be farmed in your territory (needless to say, they escaped), they're almost at the Great Lakes, and we DON'T want them on our side. Oh yeah - you'll need to break out the shovels. If you look at a map, the Welland canal (bypasses Niagara Falls) is on the Canadian side, and from the Ontario/Quebec line to the sea the St. Lawrence has Canada on both banks, so you'll need to do some serious expansion of the Erie Canal in order to get freight transported by ship from the Atlantic to the U.S. ports on the Great Lakes.

Walker is now claiming he never talked about a wall in the North.

This is sure to get him the endorsements of two groups who normally have opposing interests. The Wildlings and the White Walkers of course
