That’s what I say to anyone who says, “If so-and-so” wins the election, I’m moving to Canada. You must think you are pretty important if you imagine the whole country is going to give a flying flip that you’ve decided to leave it. Especially with that attitude. I heard it so many times when Kerry and Bush were running, and those people are still here! Hello, get on it! Pack up! You might get on over there to Fantastic Canada and find that they aren’t so freakin’ great either. Those Canadians might have their issues too. And they might even still have people who *gasp* disagree with you!!
Hey, and since you’re “taking your ball and going”, why not consider hauling your spoiled butt to some country that might make you appreciate the right you have here to loudly voice whatever your latest beliefs might be. Land in some country where you have no right to vote for your political leaders and are forced to do as you’re told. Live somewhere you can’t achieve anything you want in life, have no access to education, or the vast amounts of resources we have here. Go somewhere where the right to persue happiness is laughable, where you are lucky to survive and meagerly provide for your family. Maybe it would do you some good to realize what you have here in this country that everyone is so obnoxiously criticizing.
As many of my friends know (some better than others, sorry Amanda :-)), I’m sick of hearing about politics, and everyone’s very loud opinions. And this really, really doesn’t have anything to do with which candidate I believe in (neither-in case you were wondering). I’m frustrated with the way things are going too. I’m not saying you should stop expressing your opinions or campaigning for your guy, that is what makes this country wonderful. I’m just reminding everyone to remember what we do have. And if you are petulant enough to want to leave the country because you didn’t get your way (instead of staying and continuing to fight for what you believe), then please, please borrow our luggage, and our truck. Anything I can do to help.
