One we'll have to disagree on, but we knew that we'd have differences of opinion.

Canada absorbed an estimated 40K American refugees during the Vietnam era. At the time, they were listed as immigrants for political reasons, and many have stayed there, becoming productive citizens. The northern influx stopped at the same time the draft was halted in the US. Even after Carter pardoned the dodgers and deserters, many actually chose to stay in Canada. After 40+ years, Canadians still feel it was the biggest influx of well educated refugees or immigrants in their history. By definition, they were refugees. They were fleeing a war they wanted nothing to do with. A war that, were it not for the assassination of JFK, would have seen a complete withdrawal by 1965. LBJ, OTOH, reversed the withdrawal, much to the benefit of the Military Industrial Complex, among that group being today's Haliburton. A corporation that was extremely involved with LBJ holdings.

No they were refugees fleeing a corrupt government that used war to make their supporters rich.

They were chicken Hippies since the war was not on American soil. They were REFUSEES and there is a big difference. In the case of Viet Nam there was no Oil to fight for .

Nope, no oil, but military contracts. Haliburton was more than oil back then. They got involved with government contracts back in the new deal days and never weaned themselves from it. During Vietnam, they were small players,but the profits were huge.

Kennedy had already started troop withdrawal when he was killed. After going through it with his advisors, he came to the same conclusion Walter Cronkite did a few years later: it was an unwinable war. Troop withdrawals were quickly canceled and LBJ stepped up the action. All to the benefit of his supporters, the Military Industrial Complex that Ike had warned us about. Oh, and if you look at LBJ holdings, you'll discover he profited, too.

Hippies? Real hippies went to Haight Ashbury or communes around the country. They dropped out if the main stream. The ones that fled to Canada were some of our brightest talent that saw through the façade. Some, like Mohammed Ali, stayed and fought the government even though he had a non combat position waiting for him.

Oil became the target in the 70s, after the Arab oil embargo, but in the sixties, it was the war suppliers that made out. 60,000 menband women, many who believed they were fighting communism, died to restart the ogliarchy within our borders.

And Canada, for the most part, got the cream of our young generation.

No you don't. You dust off the keyboard and complain on Facebook, make memes like this one, and have another giant greasy burger.
