Screw these people

This whole attitude by some on the left of "If Bush wins, I'm moving out of the country" disgusts me. It's as stupid as the "America- love it or leave it" crowd. Just because the country is moving in a direction you don't personally like, does not mean you should give up on it. The pendulum swings, and one of the great things about our country is that the government is set up to be a self-correcting system. People like Barabara Mitchell just annoy the hell out of me with quotes like this-

""I'm profoundly saddened by the results of the election more than anything," she said from London. "I almost feel like an exile. I feel a disconnection with the vast majority of the geographical citizenship of the United States."

Well sorry Barbara, but that's bullshit. There were millions of Americans in the red states who voted for Kerry, and even ones who didn't share more common values with you than you'd care to admit. Real Americans stay and fight for what they believe in. These people should at least have the intellectual honesty to admit they have a problem with the American system in general. Almost every person in the linked article are planning to move to somewhat socialist countries. Overall, most Americans do not support that kind of government.
