A Republican speaks : "I'm moving to Australia"

Confused? So was Kristen Neel, a teenager from Georgia, who gained Twitter infamy in Australia in a matter of hours on Wednesday evening.

After news President Obama won four more years, the 18-year-old tweeted: "I'm moving to Australia, because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says."

**the prime minister of Australia is Julia Gillard, an atheist single woman.

2. Oh dear God! Also, voting is not only NOT supressed in Australia -

It's mandatory. Everyone is required to vote!

So her idiot heroes would never stand a chance there.

The more, the merrier (for us!).

13. I especially liked this twitter response

from @post_rock0:

@KristenNeel_ our "president" is a prime minister, is a woman, and is an atheist. I think you meant Antarctica. Move there.

16. I'm an American living in Australia . . .

And I don't want those dimbulbs coming here and damaging the good relationships that sane Yanks have with Aussies.

But I'm not unduly worried, because you have to have something to offer the country (in terms of skills) before Australia will let you in as anything but a tourist.

And these nits won't qualify.

17. My daughter was having fun with her republican

facebook friends last night, many of whom were threatening to move to Canada. She asked if they understood the irony of that, and, if it was less government they were after, maybe they should consider Somalia...

And by the way, why is it that all these anti-immigration people think they can just up and immigrate to another country. Are they planning on moving there illegally?
