How many have moved to Canada?

Interesting article about all the BS the dem's were spouting about moving to Canada if Bush won the election.

Looks like no mass exodus of blue stater's after all. Bummer!

Americans didn't flock to Canada after Bush win

Steve-O,

While it did sound like some pretty obvious hyperbole when people "threatened" to move to Canada on a Bush win, the reality is that it's a lot harder than many imagined it -- I'm sure a lot of those visitors to the immigration page were surprised, and had their plans foiled, to find that they couldn't just waltz up and set up shop (nor could we in the opposite direction). Immigrating to Canada is actually a remarkably arduous and demanding process, unless of course they claimed to be refugees. Given some of the prior claimants let it, they'd probably be successful.

Not near as hard as it should be, I like to see us get <quite> a bit closer to the Australian rules.

"I'm sure a lot of those visitors to the immigration page were surprised, and had their plans foiled, to find that they couldn't just waltz up and set up shop"

I'd love to hear about the travails some of the louder voices went through in their attempts to emigrate.

Personally, I had issues with it in the first place:
"If my side doesn't win, I'm going to run away" shows a lack of conviction and courage.

But then they don't even have the cojones to follow through on turning tail and running? Puh-leeze.

It's not always a matter of "my side lost". For me, if I chose to move to Canada (and believe me, I'm considering it), it would be about living in a society more accepting of my way of life and my beliefs.

As the US edges closer to fascism, I will definitely emigrate if I don't think that the will of the people has any chance of forcing the government to reverse course.

As a lesbian, I would prefer to live in Canada. As a Jew, I know what happens when you stick around too long.
