If the United States convinced Canada and the Carribean to join the union in the Revolutionary War, how would they vote politically?  Also, would there be more inventive to continue Manifest Destiny and take all Mexico (to maintain the balance of slave states and free states)?  How would said Mexican states vote?  Would this have changed the entire American political system, to more of a parliamentary system as in OTL commonwealth nations, or more anti federalist direction as nationalism surges? and might we see a President William Lyon Mackenzie King?

Such an idea, while interesting, probably requires us to develop a full-fledged althist and voting patterns nowadays would depend on what direction history would have taken, how Canada would have been populated/developed and what its economy would have been. The US party system might not even exist in its present state as a result.

One thing is for sure, they wouldn't speak French in Quebec or a tiny minority would speak Louisiana-like pidgin French.

All of Canadian history as we know it is butterflied away, as is a good deal of U.S. history. You pretty much have a blank slate to work with.
