White House petition calls for merging Australia and USA to ...
 
... form "Ameristralia"

So far around 5,000 people have signed this. Needs to get 100,000 signatures before May 24. It just makes me laugh - as it won't happen. Sorry to say it makes those people who signed it look more stupid than they are. For something like this to take place - it would need to go to referendum here also.

AUSTRALIA and the US will merge to form one super nation called Ameristralia. Sound like a gag? Maybe not.

A petition has been created on the official White House website calling for the Obama Administration to join "America and Australia to form Ameristralia".

The "We the People" section on the whitehouse.gov website was launched in 2011 to allow the public, in accordance with the First Amendment of the US Constitution, to petition the US government on issues deemed important.

Then the U.K. can take control again and everything will be back as it should be ;)

I've no idea how big Australia's national debt is, but maybe this is a clever ruse to merge the nations creating a new one that's not an obvious successor state so they don't have to inherit the national debts. ;)

If they'd called it Australerica, it might have stood a chance. ;)

Will it get the US universal health care and an end to the ridiculous gun laws the US currently has?

What will be the new animal symbol of this proposed country? Kangaroo or Eagle ?

Damn it was bad enough then John Howard was arsecrawling George W. Bush trying to turn us into the 51st state without people asking for it.

The official national vehicle better be a Foster's-sponsored Monster Truck being driven by a koala bear going "Yee-HAW" or else I will rebel against this new country with every fiber of my soul.

'Muristralia!

Is Carlton Draught okay with you Aussies? I just don't want it to be Bud Light. That stuff's too weak even for grown American AV nerds.

No theoretical country should ever have that as its national beer.
