} Fear Not, my properly grovelling Questioner:
} This incarnation looks upon your question with great favor,
} considering the manner in which it was posed. I will
} therefore give you a glimpse of the future:
} Let us assume that Hell froze over and David Duke became
} President. Let us also consider Quebec's secession from
} Canada, and consequent dislike of the American trading
} situation. For four years, the Quebec Elite National Guard
} would make forays and sorties against Maine, Vermont, and
} New Hampshire. The attacks would be repulsed by US customs
} agents who would not allow items of over $2,000, including
} heavy artillery, to cross the border. Those enterprising
} Elite Guards who hid their firearms in the backs of their
} tanks, and were then able to get through customs, would
} be ignored by the locals, who were more interested in
} watching LA Law. Upset and frustrated, the Elite guard would
} return to Quebec, and play a game of hockey.
} After four years, of course, once the Presidential elections
} rolled around again, all of the French people in Quebec
} would flow across the border like a large herd of Caribou,
} or perhaps Lemmings, and elect Jerry Lewis, their Idol, as
} the next President. The reign of terror would be over. Of
} course, as a joke, President Lewis would detonate the
} entire nuclear arsenal of the US, as part of the 1812
} Overture. Such a massive explosion would cause Hell to thaw,
} making it, in fact, a rather nice resort.
} Therefore, it would behoove you to buy some real estate
} along the Styx.
} Thus speaketh the Oracle!
