Somehow I do not think that Australia would allow them in. Canada doesn't want them either. They can't move south of the border because "OMG brown people" not to mention the Mexicans would not put up with their shiat. As for the EU, they all think our right wingers are nuts, and it takes a miracle to get a permanent expat status in France or Germany these days even if you are highly skilled and not an anti-science religious wingnut. So, basically they are screwed. They are not only the minority in the U.S. they are by far the minority world wide, and they need to examine why that is the case. If 99.9% of the global population thinks you are an extremist nut case, then maybe you need to rethink WHY you believe the crap clogging your neurons. It's either that or find some loosely controlled area in the center of S. America or Africa and try to set up your own little theocratic utopian mecca. Good luck trying to defend it against the locals, and the wildlife, though.

WienerButt: Thats No Moose: It's interesting to note how many of those are women, and what looks like relatively young women.

I don't want to seem sexist, but fark it.

I have never met a woman who was conservative and backed it up with at least some well versed, intelligent rhetoric. I have some guy friends who say stupid shiat and spout out talking points, but I have other friends who have respectable views and use them to illustrate their own personal challenges. Every single woman (keep in mind I am late 20s) I see on Facebook is just flat out retarded. Elementary school teachers calling obama a Muslim socialist, asking for a good book on communist leaders so they know how the next four years will be, etc.

There is no scientific explanation for the derp.


Maybe you're just in the wrong profession. I'm a retired senior librarian from a large urban public library system. I worked with (and for) a great many women over the years, and generally got along with them quite well. About half of them were single at any given time, and probably 80% of all of them were far more liberal than the average -- not to mention far better educated. (Two master's degrees was very common for all of us.) And this was a conservative city in a Southern state. (. . . which, I have to admit, went for Obama yesterday. Amazing.)

OTOH, the stay-at-home-type women in my upper-middle-income subdivision don't seem to be entirely convinced that the Earth rotates around the sun, and not vice versa.

jakomo002: Good. I heard enough Romney supporters saying they'll move to Canada if Obama wins.

Well, we don't WANT you up here, not even in Alberta. Not if you think Obama is too "socialist".

Kuroshin: The vast majority of people don't understand how easy we've got it here. They can't even fathom that other countries flatly do not want them.


They can't even fathom that even we in the US generally find them about as welcome as a fart in church.

/why do so many people who claim to "love America" manage to hate 80% of the people who ARE America?

Hoban Washburne: balial: Australia has lower effective tax rates than the US, once you bundle in state income tax. And they throw the healthcare in for free.

I'm going to guess this has something to do with Australia not building a ton of kajillion dollar fighter jets every year to go sit on a lot and rust somewhere. I could be wrong.


Reminds me of the "debate" that gave me a migraine last week when discussing the macro economics of military spending cuts with the Poli. Sci. students at ULM. They could not wrap their heads around the idea that we'd be better off closing some of the HUNDREDS of overseas bases that are redundant than cutting hardware purchases. Yes, we probably have more planes, tanks, and ships than we need, but at least those purchases do provide high paying defense industry jobs. The overseas bases, however, are pumping billions of dollars into the local economies of the nations that they are housed in. You don't honestly think a soldier stationed in Germany or Korea spends all their pay on base do you? Heck no, they are pouring that money into purchases and activities in that country. We could spend $6 trillion a year on over 4700 military installations, not counting the 400 small stations in Afghanistan. If we closed just 1/4 of those, we could cut $2.4 trillion from the military budget without costing any jobs in the military industrial complex.

I would love to see us get the military budget to a more reasonable 40% of our budget rather than the 59% of GDP it currently is, but we have to consider options other than "Don't build new planes." There are implications to any cuts, but we can mitigate the impact on our unemployment issue by bending the straw that sucks money out of our economy and pours it into the economies of other nations. http://www.laprogressive.com/defense-budget/

mrshowrules: pregerstheHobo: Stephen Harper is an arsehole.

I feel these people would like a central american country, they're more bootsrrappy and independent. Guatemala for example.

/csb, father-in-law was uber repub until moving to panama, now he sees people suffering every day and is more liberal than kucinicj

As soon as Canada merge's there two Liberal parties the Liberal Party elects Justin Trudeau as their leader, Harper's gone. It is a safety valve that we will activate if we have to.

I truly wish those idiots were serious and left the country. Hell, they can leave the planet for all I care. Why is anyone shocked that the biggest liar lost the election? Do they even have a brain? Are you seriously telling me that they thought building an entire platform around alienating every form of minority would result in a landslide victory? This just proves it: people that go all in to support the republican party aren't just stupid, they're delusional. Which explains McCain/Palin...

They'd have a stroke if anybody told them this, but they'd be most at home in a strict Muslim country. They share a lot of the same values.

I don't really think it's sexist to suggest that any woman voting for a Republican is a moron. Republicans have shown their misogyny over and over and over.

At least rich white males could find actual reasons to vote for Republicans. Everyone else, though-gays, women, minorities, non-Christians-if they voted for a Republican, they're morons.

Kristen Neel
I'm moving to Australia, because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says.

I'm betting Julia Gillard would personally put the denied stamp on Ms. Neel's application form.
