So what is the wingnut equivalent of 'moving to Canada'?

This article got me wondering. Where do the right wingers flee? Europe is out. Canada is out. Somalia? Saudi Arabia?

3. Moving to Alberta

 

Still Canada, but Canada's right wing nut job province. Where oil, religious fundamentalism, creationism, fracking, and global warming denial all flourish.

19. The righter wing party recently lost the general election in Alberta

The party that won is called progressive conservative. In many respects the progressive label is fairly accurate.

33. I dunno...I'm in Alberta right now

Oil, yea...but our Conservative government isn't insanely conservative. They just heavily invested in public school, and the social safety net, particularly for the disabled. They don't deny global warming, however I will say they don't seem to care about it. And yea, gay marriage is legal here. Our health care coverage is also better than the much more liberally-minded province of B.C.

So, it's not too bad...course I live in probably the most liberal part of the province.

5. Mexico is another one of the 3 developed nations without national health care.

The US is another.

The last is Turkey.

So if the wingnuts are no longer happy with our "socialistic" country, they'll have to decide whether they want to deal with Mexicans or (gasp!) Muslims.

It will also leave them well-poised to initiate their war with Iran.

And they can resurrect Constantinople!

The real nutjobs (the RWNJs with money and power) would never set foot on a battlefield. Maybe you could take them hostage at a fundraiser on a carrier and drop them off?

7. The wingnuts are ignoring that whatever country they choose (except maybe Somalia)

has rules for immigration and they probably won't qualify... If they want to leave the U.S. they may have to become "illegals".

Dennis Miller is making noises along those lines. Says he's just going to 'shrug' and stop supporting all these damn freeloaders. So I guess he's going to drop his radio show disappointing dozens of his listeners and join Glenn Beck buying guns and farmland. I'm guessing it's a toss-up between Wyoming and Oklahoma. Utah is out because, while they tolerated Romney as a RINO, they really don't like Mormons.

24. Not Canada ...

While many of them have said that this is where they would move ... even our right wing prime minister (who only gets 30-40% support) believes in single payer health care, access to abortion and equality for LGBT people - not only in marriage, but in everything. That is about as right wing as we get, at least as right wing as you can get and have a chance of governing and his days are numbered - he is under threat from the NDP (actual socialists).

In short, our 'conservative' party is roughly equal to or to the left of Obama on most issues. (except the environment and taxes).

We are also definitely not all white - You can find some places on the prairies that are pretty pale, but even that is changing. Toronto was named, by the UN, as the most multicultural city in the world. We are officially bi-lingual (English and French) and we are officially multi-cultural as a matter of government policy.

Oh and you can also get arrested for hate speech here (racist, homophobic etc). The Westboro Baptist Church is banned from the country as a hate group.

they;ll need them, but I doubt they'll be able to build an infrastructure to survive without being completely dependent on the environment around themselves.

Something tells me, the "rugged individualism" is just a sweet fantasy of those who spout it.

No idea what their politics are but the land is cheap and the entire population is getting ready to move anyway, so they can do as they please with it.

Besides, 1% of the people have had 99% of the wealth down there for some time; it's an arrangement with which they are comfortable.

36. Fox station tells Romney supporters how to ‘beat the traffic’ to Canada

The Fox station in Oklahoma on Wednesday gave supporters of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney some helpful tips for fleeing the country before President Barack Obama starts his second term.

In the Fox 23 “Beat the Traffic” segment on the morning after Obama won re-election, traffic reporter Jeff Brucculeri took a look at some of the delays around Tulsa before having some fun with disgruntled voters.

“We had some folks make a special request,” Brucculeri explained. “I know a lot people said that if their candidate lost the election, they’d be moving to Canada — not sure why, but that was some of the folks’ promises out there.”

So, the traffic anchor proceeded to give “the quickest and directest route” up north, where big government, same sex marriage and universal health are a part of everyday life.

======

Montreal-based immigration lawyer immigration lawyer David Cohen told CNN that he had received calls from all over the United States after Romney lost on Tuesday.

“That’s the amazing thing, when they speak on the phone. They’re adamant. They feel very, very strong about it,” Cohen said. “This government doesn’t speak for me’ is the language that we often hear.”

37. moving to Canada-do you think they know Canadian politics?

CNN had an article this morning with a few Canadian immigration officials talking about how every 4 years they get an up tick in Americans asking about what it take to immigrate there. They said this year they got more GOP callers. So as expected they have NO * clue about the world they live in. For the record very few people actually do move from the USA due to politics.
