You guys go ahead and run away. I'll be staying here in the good ole USA. I was born here. This is my home and I'm not ready to give up on it. Glad it wasn't up to you folks to pioneer the West or explore the unknown Oceans back it the day when it was very dangerous to do so.

The phrase that ran through my mind was "The other mans grass is always greener". Please accpt what you've got and where you live: what makes you think you'll be happier elsewhere??
I was born and live in the UK: it's not perfect - but where is "perfect" on this planet? So, I'm happy enough, for what it's worth.
OH! And *another* saying "Out of the frying pan, into the fire."

I lived in Calgary for a year and although I was still too dumb to realise the implications, I saw Canadian people (out west at least) rapidly assimilating to US cultural values. Why do most people live on the border? No offense was meant by this, but I feel Canadians will soon be fighting for their identity.
*EDIT: It's happening the world over, and it begs the question: What would moving to another country accomplish if they're all going to end up like the USA?

Family moved to Jamestown in 1609, Holloway, and we aren't going anywhere, doesn't matter what the anyone else thinks, they can be taught a few things if they think we are moving. The enemy has to sleep sometime and when they do, they will sleep permanently.

And do you think that even if half of the population was to stand up against them that we could even put a dent in it? It's like riding a tricycle against a train. We already lost the war - we surrendered our weapons!! The government was never supposed to be more powerful than the people.
Coward? No. Would you stand up against a tank with a squirt gun or move out of the way?
