    Canada is cool. I was considering making a home there before Bush.

    I definitely want to move up north... Oregon, Washington, Canada. I can't stand this California air.

    I'm starting in Vancouver and going from there, though from the research I've done and the visiting I think that I'll be staying there for a while.

    Are you over there some where ?

    Though I do hope that there are people who can stomach it here and in the US more than I can to stay and help sort it out.
    I've been thinking in a similar way for a year or so, since the invasion and occupation of Iraq - and I'm a UK citizen. I'm disgusted with my country for siding with the United States regarding the decision to go to war. It's severaly depressing to know that I represent a country which acts in this way, in the 21st century

    I've considered Canada, and also Sweden or somewhere in Europe.

    It's leadership has made some decisions and support some international actions that I believe aren't in the interest of the common good, at all.

    Let alone moral, legal or honest.

    Also seeing the route that this country is taking due to influence and associations, I would rather sleep at night agreeing with what my tax payments are being used for.

    Quoted for truth. And you wonder why we're scared enough to leave (j/k)

    Good thats what we call the will of the people

    Thats why we vote, we elect people to office that represent me and you. If the majority doesnt want gay marriage, stem cell research, or abortion then the majority rules.

    Thats common knowledge.
    First off, the president is not elected directly. We're a republic, not a democracy. The only officials that are elected directly are your local officials, senators, and representatives. The Senate and the House make up the electoral vote, which is what decides the presidency. Since they vote along party lines, what really decides the presidency is who is in the senate and the house. The popular vote means nothing, and is just smoke and mirrors.

    Second of all, there are plenty of items that popular opinion is against that Bush is for. The majority of people want prescription drugs from Canada. Bush says no.

    Move to Canada because Bush won? No. That's the easy way out, and it doesn't solve things. Try to change the system, work towards getting people to directly elect the president - yes. Republican or Democrat, I don't care. I'd like to see some people with character - not those who have extramarital affairs, hand out contracts to their friends companies, etc. in power. I'd like a President that actually CARES about the working American instead of helping political allies and crushing the working man with taxes, fees, etc.

    Unfortunately, IMHO, the political process is too broken to be fixed without a LOT of sacrifices on both the Dems and Rebublican sides. The two party system blows, and the fact that the common man is ignored in the political process is a joke.
