That's because people in Europe are so much better at spotting potential dictators...hey,learning from your own history DOES make a difference!

BC is a good example of bad things that happen when you vote against someone rather than for someone else.

Blah. I can't vote yet. I'm sick of hearing about the elections because I can't vote yet. But, since Oregon will self-destruct otherwise, I'm rooting for Kerry. *waves a little flag*

I'm new to the whole forum thing so i apologize in advance to any stupidity on my part. Sadly, it was politics that finally got me to register.

I voted (in the 5MV district) for Bush, because although I don't trust him I do know how he runs his government. And maybe, just maybe he will get the US out of the place he has gotten them into.

I think so too,applepies, that's why I've changed not my vote, but my support. Go Bush!

I voted for the Allosaurus in his poll.

On behalf of everyone in the blue states, I would like to apologize for what the fanatics in what's left of my country have just visited upon the rest of the world. If we thought we could manage it, the blue states would secede and leave the south and midwest to be the Confederacy which they wanted to be 150 years ago.

Zeke, what are the requirements for becoming a Canadian citizen?

Not being rude about HM Queen Elizabeth II, for starters(joking). Also for British citizenship (well, actually you can get in to Britain by carrying explosives, lol...)

Well, that makes two of you -- Tim Lynch has been posting at Peter David's blog to the effect that if America willingly re-elected Bush after the past four years, he'd no longer be comfortable raising his new daughter there. It depresses me to hear you guys talk that way, because you're talking about leaving the country you love for a reason I just don't think is worth it. I understand why you're afraid, but in your place I'd be as afraid under Kerry as under Bush, probably more. We're living in scary times.

I don't have any information about getting Canadian citizenship. It's probably not hard to find on Google, though.

Honestly, I was not at all scared about the prospect of living under Kerry, much as I didn't want him as President. You really can't do all that much damage (or good) in 4 years.

But I just read that Kerry has conceded on CNN, so that eventuality isn't going to happen anyway.

How to become a Canadian citizen (if from the US):

1. Call the Canadian Board of Immigration.
2. Request citizenship.
3. Write easy test.
4. Enjoy your new life.

At least that what my Social text book from 1982 says.

If you move, don't come to Alberta, we have everything bad, except oil. Oh, avoid BC too, crazy social program cuts. From what I've heard Manitoba and Sasketchewan are pretty boring too. There's always Ontario... but then again, Toronto. Quebec is good, do you know any French? You'll like the maritimes, if you like being refered to as "Have Not". How do you feel about the Yukon?
