Moving to Canada

Throughout the day I've read and heard republicans say they plan on moving to Canada because of the Obama victory.

I don't understand that.; Why would someone who is a republican move to Canada? It just makes no sense whatsoever. You end up losing. Canada already has the high taxes and the socialist systems.

Going there would be like WILLINGLY choosing to move to the country that ALREADY adapted the very system you voted against when you chose McCain.

In '04 when the Democrats promised to move to Canada, they made sense. Canada welcomes jackasses. I was even hoping promises would be kept and many of them would move there after Bush won! But no, shoulda figured. Democrats and their empty promises.

Back to Republicans: What's wrong with you people? Do you even know about Canada's economy? or high sales tax?

Oh well

true, but with Canada you already know what you're going to get. It can't get any worse over there. In America it most likely will. I don't blame those people.

If conservatives leave, liberals will be unchecked, so while some conservatives may whine about a more liberal government in the US, they aren't going anywhere. I haven't heard any conservatives say anything about Canada, although a couple have voiced the desire to move to Montana in the last 2 days.

And you think it wouldn't get worse if Mccain won the presidency? We all know it's going to get worse before it gets better, Don't blame the newly appointed president for that.

People are already blaming obama for the stock market fall yesterday and he isn't even in office yet.

artie- until taxes go up we can save and stuff. in canada ure going in straight down on cash.
you'd have to find a job there and u won't know how long thatll take yet ull still have living expensenses. I would fear starting all over with job and savings more than I would fear a potential tax increase in a few months. these things take time and in the meanntime we can pray the dems don't win the four remainin seats and that the do read up a bit on Reagenomics. In Canada there's no hope. nit even in 2 yrs when the US power can shift to even.

anon: why montana? taxes would go up there to. abd the unibomber from there. I always imagine strange mountain men. lol.

aj- its known that dems gonna be bad for stock market and general capitalism. many ppl are prob selling now to avoid taxes next yr. why bother investing if most of ur profits will be taken away. BO is already alignng himself with pretty liberal advisors. unless he goes moderate thers plenty of reason to blame his victory for the stock market plummet

The Babysitter said...

frumskeptic said...

FrumSkeptic: "I like my fellow people"

It's not just Canada's economy and taxes, it's also that there's no freedom of speech thanks to the Human Rights Commissions.

Best thing to do right now is move to Tennessee. The Republicans have both house of the legislature.

Alaska, under the leadership of the Queen Mother, Sarah Palin.

See, Obama is moshiach, all the frummies want to move to Israel.


The Babysitter said...

Moshe: interesting, they are all talking about going to Israel.

I was saying the same thing, but in jest. People that are saying they would move to Canada are merely playing around with the stupidity of what some on the left did before. Nobody is serious

I like all accented people it dont make a difference for me. I wont move from america and not much is going to change in the next four years.

Skeeta said...

These people are crazy. Canada? My grandfather's moving to New Zealand! ; )

seriously though, I don't know why people are freaking out. It's not like he's going to suddenly triple taxes and switch to a communist economy. Give him a chance, see what he does.

"it's not like he's going to suddenly triple taxes and switch to a communist economy."

Hope you're right but that was what his campaign was about. So if he only doubles taxes and switches to a socialist economy we'll be praising him for being such a moderate.

Agree with those who think Australian accent is cool. It's too bad that now they have a "liberal" government, and from what I read, it's messing everything up.

Hey! What wrong with Canada, eh?

We get to keep lottery winnings - no taxes there.

Medicare - anyone can go to the hospital and not expect thousands of dollars in bills later.

Also, the whole mortgage thing would never happen in Canada because of the banking laws and the like.

You can walk right up to the Parliament buildings and play on the front lawn. Just like that!

see? lots of nice stuff here!

Besides, Canadians are just so darn nice. We apologize for everything.
