Wow, the tinfoil hat brigade is out in full force. Maybe its just a consequence of sterotypical American arrogance, but what makes you think Canada would want to join you? We have a ton of water, oil and other natural resources. What, exactly, would we have to gain?

You realize that he's talking about the traditional economic divide between northern and southern hemishpere nations, right?

You might interpret it that way. I listened to most of his speech. The thrust of it was toward a United Nations with more power to enforce it's will. And it seemed in this portion I had quoted that he could easily have been referring to much more than the "economic divide". What words in the speech would lead you to believe it was limited in scope? What do you mean by "the traditional economic divide"?

When Mr. Obama speaks, people get hypnotized. He is president of the world.

Ever noticed that the majority of rich and influential nations are above the equator and the majority of poor nations are below?

As for the speech, I didn't watch and have only skimmed the text, but I saw a speech that focused on the idea that traditional super powers are going to be less relevant going forward.
