ETA - well crap. You always forget a couple things.
On those threatening to leave: So you have threatened to leave the U.S. if your candidate doesn't win the Presidency. Samuel Adams covered this quite well.
"...May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
I enjoy a wealth of acquaintances and friends from across the political spectrum. We argue. We fight...rhetorically. To a person, every single one of them is an American in their heart and in their head. The(y) love freedom even though we disagree on the best means of pursuing that freedom.
There are millions of people that have immigrated to the U.S. in pursuit of that freedom. People from Iran and Iraq and other parts of the Middle East that are fed up with living under various flavor of dictatorship; theocratic or otherwise. Millions more have come from south of our border to escape dictatorships, oligarchies, kleptocracies and other offenses to the cause of individual liberty.
And you know what? Millions more have the same unquenchable thirst for freedom. They have in their heads and in their hearts the desire to be left to live their lives in peace and liberty and away from the bullying nose of government.
And if you lack that thirst, then please find the nearest exit. Leave your citizenship at the door. You don't have what it takes.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams"
It is ignorant in that Canada has some pretty strict rules for immigration when compared with the U.S. They want young people with skills and/or education to be in their labor force for a long time. The old, uneducated, and unskilled need not apply. The election of either of the major candidates will not qualify you as a political refugee in any place beyond your imagination.
It is racist in that these folks never threaten to move to Mexico. As most of the "or I'm moving to Canada" folks seem to be quite a bit left of center, I'm also surprised that they don't want to move to the Chavista paradise that is Venezuela. They have bucket loads of that "democratic socialism" down there. And yet they almost always offer to move to Canada.....or less often to "Europe".
They never offer to move to a place where they could use their skills and education to improve life for the people in their new country. Must be too many brown skinned people for their taste.
