I want my children to move to Canada

They are both college students. I want them to raise their children in a safe country. These last few months, aside from the Obama victory, have been so depressing.

Between personal losses, the damage to my community from Hurricane Sandy and the predictable republican response to the residents of NY & NJ,along with climate change denial, the Sandy Hook tragedy and the rush to buy more more more ammo and assault weapons...

I just don't see how things get better. This country is just too freaking stupid.

Any one have any good news?

1. The good news is that the days are getting longer and the nights are getting shorter...

With the added length of the day, there are millions of us out there fighting for change.

Encourage your kids to join us!

4. I don't blame you for feeling that way.

I have felt it recently, too.

But maybe we should work together to bring sanity back to the US. Maybe your kids can be a part of that.

5. Finland

My mother was born in Finland, I told my 24 yo son I would pay for a round trip to Helsinki for the upcoming summer to visit some relatives there and a chance to take a good, hard look to see if that was something he could feature as a future. He's thinking it over. BTW, this has nothing to do with "gun nuts"

7. my family is very involved

We have been members of the Brady campaign for probably 20 years. I worked on Carolyn McCarthy's first campaign. She was.my Congresswoman before we moved.
I just don't know if anything will change. And if it doesnt change in response to 20 dead.little children, when will it?

9. years ago my neice said she wanted

to move to Canada and I told her not to do that. I have since apologized and told her I was wrong.
I can only agree with you.

10. Good advice IMO.

I considered Canada or Europe about 35 years ago but immigration information wasn't very accessible at the time. The libraries I checked didn't have much and I gave up on the idea. Then I got older and less desirable per immigration policies.

The U.S. needs a new constitution but that won't happen. A constitutional convention of today's Koch-sucking politicos would likely produce a corrupt, special interest, human disaster anyway.

I could have really used this site 35 years ago: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index-can.asp

11. The good news is that multiple adult personnel in that school SAVED so many.
