I don't know if this is the correct place for this...I tend to get many of my threads moved....but I found this interesting, as I have thought about it myself...apparently there are a lot of people that are thinking about this...whether they'll do it or no, it show just how scared many of us are with The God Bush in control for another four years


The number of U.S. citizens visiting Canada's main immigration Web site has shot up six-fold as Americans flirt with the idea of abandoning their homeland after President Bush (news - web sites)'s election win this week.

"When we looked at the first day after the election, Nov. 3, our Web site hit a new high, almost double the previous record high," immigration ministry spokeswoman Maria Iadinardi said on Friday.

On an average day some 20,000 people in the United States log onto the Web site, www.cic.gc.ca -- a figure which rocketed to 115,016 on Wednesday. The number of U.S. visits settled down to 65,803 on Thursday, still well above the norm.

We have many, many, many freedoms in the U.S., and one of them is the freedom and ability to move, despite those acclaimed assertions leveled at a national leader.

When the numbers reach the millions, then be concerned.
Btw, will the now-irrelavent Micheal Moore and Goerge Soros be among them?

Wasn't going to respond to this but this part of the article was just too good.

"As Canadians, you'll have to learn to embrace and use all the products and culture of Americans, while bad-mouthing their way of life," he said.

So bloody true, we live MUCH the same way. I can't figure out why we get labeled "socialist" just because we have universal health care.

If someone will not fight for their country (vote) who needs them. Canada doesnt have to worry the first time they dont get their way they will leave

Also, numbers are still indicating that there are many more people legally immigrating to the U.S. than leaving, despite who is President. Just some 'open' numbers....in the year 2000, there were approxly. 850,000 that legally immigrated to the U.S., and over 100,000,000 since the early 1970's...
Overview and History of U.S. Immigration

Edit: Oppss, found this mentioning:


On a normal day, some 70,000 foreigners arrive in the United States. Most are welcomed at airports and borders: more than 60,000 of them are nonimmigrants who come to the US as tourists, business visitors, students or foreign workers. Another 2,500 arrivals are immigrants or refugees whom the US has invited to join American society as permanent residents. Finally, there are 5,000 unauthorized aliens. About 4,000 are apprehended every day, most along the US-Mexican border just after entry, but at least 1,000 elude detection at the border, or slip from legal to unlawful status after legal entry, as when a tourist takes employment.

The incumbant, winner




The challenger




The wild card

I would but Canada suffers from too much brain-drain as it is.

They didn't leave in 2000. Alec Baldwin said he would leave if Bush won, sad to say, he stayed. Robert Redford said he would move to Ireland, he won't. They follow the money. There is acting work in British Columbia. If they are so unhappy that they will run from their country, why go to Canada, go to France, Germany, heard Theresa Kerry is going to open up a refuge in Mozambique for all disenfranchised Americans woohoo!

I know. I don't get that either. The way of life is pretty much interchangeable. You can supersize at McDonalds or shop at Walmart, however the spirit moves you. It's not like you're taking off to the great white north and fishing salmon with a spear.

But I'm willing to do my part. Anyone see this website?

Surely then you don't mean Billy
However the former Mrs. Alec Baldwin is welcome to stay with me.

Well, all I can say is if you feel that strongly about leaving...go.
But, how does your leaving the US impact what happens here? Who would know? Who would care? Certainly not George Bush.

Change must come from within and you won't be part of that change on foreign soil. I hope you rethink your move.

BTW, how many presidential elections have you voted in? How many wins and how many losses?
I can tell you my candidate has not always been the winner, but I've never wanted to leave cuz my guy lost.

Just a few days ago, I think. Being desired is way better than being the object of scorn, derision and the poor cousin syndrome, for sure!

I think you are over-reacting. I would be more afraid of those who seek a civil war in our country.
