Skip to comments.No, Canada! (United States of Canada vs. Jesusland)

You have probably heard the idle chatter: ''I'm thinking of moving to Canada." You may have received the JPEG Sent 'Round the World, labeling the northern part of North America -- the right-thinking part, as liberals would have it -- as the United States of Canada, and the pro-Bush leaning ''red" US states as Jesusland
It sounds so alluring. Good beer. Cheap Viagra. Hardly any crime. Friendly, if somewhat ineffectual, people. Terrific, if underappreciated, novelists. (This means you, Rohinton Mistry.) Secure borders, courtesy of the US Department of Defense.
But before you pack, consider this: There are plenty of reasons not to move to Canada. Let me count the ways.
1. They don't really want you. Canada is full of losers like you. If you're really rich, or a brain surgeon, maybe. But if you are, say, a newspaper reporter, be prepared to wait at least a year just to live there legally, and several more years to become a citizen.
If you have some special qualifications, like a PhD, plus a lot of work experience, and if you are under 50, you have a better chance of crashing the gates of Snow Mexico. Or if you're loaded. That's right. If you have a net worth of $800,000 Canadian or more, and are willing to invest $400,000 of it in Canada, come on in! And you thought George Bush's America was a plutocracy. . . . Think again.

Hehe, that's excellant!

I can take a joke about religion as well as the other guy can (and better than many here on FreeRepublic), but has anybody else noticed the condescending, unfunny, and downright HATEFUL attitude many left-wingers are displaying toward Christianity since their election defeat?
JesusLand? WTF is that nonsense?
These guys are starting to sound like babies crying "It's God's fault!" for the failure of their own rhetoric to sway voters. Whether God did or didn't (who can say), have something to do with the outcome of this election, these socialist loonies are missing the point. THEY caused their own failures, and cursing God will not give them any success in the future. Quite the contrary, as I think the Bible says somewhere in Revelations that God will look rather unkindly on those who attack Him (*WINK*).
I have known of good citizens driven to illness and heavy legal fees, to avoid the charges of this Commission(I have actual facts). Any lib had better watch their definitions here. Definitions that change year to year. They will be called "racists" at the drop of a hat.
Ok now for a bit of PL humour. We, in Ontario at the Michigan border 'ave but few well paying jobs. Houses are for sale at unbelievably low prices. Bring yer greenbacks libs, welcome. Every day you can go down to the St Mary's River and look across at Michigan. Do not worry, you will be welcomed back by your countrymen/women - because America is the most tolerant country in the world.
Oh, plug here. Luce County is a red, deep red county. Lovely natural enclosed area for the bears- my grand daughters loved it.
They don't get most of California either,,,the majority of CA counties are Red, we just happen to have a lower population and fewer people on welfare so we vote Republican. We can let them have SF, LA and San Diego...and all up hwy 1...other than that we will stay in USA..:)
Take everything true blue. That's the United States of America. The red stuff is People's Democratic Republic of Turtle IslandTM. I say we call it P-DRTI (pronounce: PeeDirty) for short.
Although take Detroit away from Michigan, and we win by 150,000 votes.
Oakland County is Blue, not red.
Alpena and Manistee Counties are red, not Blue.
I like that one. Nice deep blue (63% if rounded) blue where I'm at. Surrounded by red on all sides except the NW.
I have to wonder what the county map for Ontario is. I'm sure the cities are leftist - Toronto, Missauagua(sp), Hamilton, Niagara Falls, London, and Windsor are all Liberal or NDP, but outside of that, I'm not sure.
Bravo! That one is more accurate too. Throw out Philly and "W" carries Pennsylvania easily.
Yeah, I've wondered about that, too.
What we need is the draft then the losers would be granted immediate entrance to Canada - hopefully their families would be welcome too.
I wonder what happened to Canada; we used to enjoy visiting there but no more.
During the Iranian hostage crisis, the Canadians assisted many Americans to escape Iran.
My son, who was in the Navy, was stationed overseas and he told me the Canadian pilots who stopped off there always brought beer and steaks for them - just plain, nice people.
If we look at the state of California, we see it is mostly red and perhaps there are a lot of red areas in Canada as well - perhaps they have a Kerry in charge.
What the hey... it's snowed 4 times at my place so far this year.
How true. Isn't the Bible up there full of language that merits "hate crimes" up there? Just mentioning that you had to listen to a Bible passage or hear the word God, should be enough for them to give them refuge.
Yeah - tell him you were just sitting peacefully at home watching one of your Queer Eye for the Straight Guy DVDs, when a couple of Jesusland agents came up to your house on their bicycles and asked if were interested in (gasp!) hearing the Word of Jesus Christ as put forth in the Book of Mormon.
And then, after they left and you drove your hybrid down to the organic market to pick up a warm soy milk to calm your jangled nerves, you passed by a church and it (horror of horrors!!!) had a cross outside!
Instant political asylum.
Awesome thank you!
Liberals are apparently racists. Why wouldn't they want CA to be part of Mexico--they're much closer to Mexico than to Canada. Must be a racist thing to believe they're better than Mexicans. Liberals=Racists
Might want to remind the "flee to Canada" types that the whole eastern region, Quebec on out, is on the verge of secession. That doesn't leave much left population-wise (Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver).
If most of Canada wants to flee Canada ... ?
If you take the major cities(except Calgary) out of the equation, Canada would be more right-wing than Texas or Idaho!
Shouldn't Alberta and Manitoba, at least, be included with Jesusland?
I meant Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.
Can we change the name to "HaShemland" or "Bibleland" please?
They think their Black Fundamentalist constituency worships Darwin.
Wouldn't European concepts like "democracy" and "republicanism" be an insult to the quaint indigenous pipples and their various chiefs, kings, and emperors?
Three cheers for Red Canada
I was being sarcastic . . . you know, pointing out the incongruity of worshipping "indigenous cultures" while somehow believing those cultures would express themselves throught a Marxist democratic republican vegetarian society?
Hey, we still got Alaska...
And British Columbia, to a lesser extent.
"Better yet, we'll force everyone in the blue areas up into New England and let Canada have that in exchange for Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Nunavat, Northwest Territories, and Yukon Territory."
1) Don't presume to trade away my state. The libs can whine and flee if they so desire. You WILL NOT abet them at my expense.
2) Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Yukon Territory all voted for the Liberal Party in the 2004 election.
Okay, okay. There are still some sane people left in NH. How'd you manage that feat right in the middle of New England? As for the Canadian territories, let's at least take the Yukon. We need some direct land route to Alaska and ANWR.:)
"How'd you manage that feat right in the middle of New England?"
IMHO the only reason NH went for Kerry was cross-border voter fraud. I was poll watching and there were twice as many people registering as new voters as there were actual registered voters. Maybe three times as many. And we couldn't check the new registrants.
"As for the Canadian territories, let's at least take the Yukon. We need some direct land route to Alaska and ANWR."
Alaska has a land border with BC. We don't need the Yukon Territory.
BTW, there are only about 100,000 people in those three territories all together.
I'm just waiting for some liberal whiner to start flaming about us coveting Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia (it's okay for *them* to talk about busting up the USA ...)
In any case, they'll get not one square inch. They don't deserve it, and they probably don't own very much of it. No doubt the vast majority of Kerry voters don't actually own anything. They just want to take ours.
Yeah, you're right about BC and AK sharing a border. I just forgot.
Since the county boundaries do not follow the electoral districts in Canada it is difficult to tell. Here are my GUESSES in Ontario based on political trends and cultures (some are not legally counties, but independent cities, regional municipalities or districts):
Extreme blue - Toronto
Strong blue - Peel, York, Hamilton, Prescott/Russell
Moderate blue - Essex, Middlesex, Waterloo, Wellington, Halton, Durham, Frontenac, Ottawa, Greater Sudbury, Sudbury (district), Thunder Bay, Cochrane, Algoma, Timiskaming, Kenora, Brantford
Nearly 50/50 - Rainy River, Manitoulin, Nipissing, Stormont/Dundas/Glengarry, Peterborough, Niagara, Lambton, Chatham-Kent
Moderate red - Hastings, Prince Edward, Northumberland, Simcoe, Huron, Perth
Strong red - Renfrew, Lanark, Leeds/Grenville, Lennox and Addington, Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes, Muskoka, Parry Sound, Dufferin, Haldimand, Norfolk, Grey, Bruce, Oxford, Elgin, Brant (county)

Whoa - this is an old thread!
Coincidentally, for the first time tonight, my bride and I discussed moving to the High River, Alberta area from our native B.C. We've been scouting around the southern interior looking for a retirement abode and we realized that south-western Alberta is about as sweet as country gets. Prosperous, too.
