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.

The map is kind of dumb because people in the Western red states CO, ID, NV, WY (And MT & NM to a lesser degree and probably AK) are actually less likely to be religious than people in the Blue States (Excluing OR & WA of course)

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 do not take this talk of disenchanted Democrats moving to Canada seriously. You have stumbled on a great "secret" however re the UP. Many, many times after reading of the obscene descisions of the Ontario Human Rights Inquisition -opps Commission, I trembled.

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..:)

THAT looks more like it. Now, If we can merge this map with the Canada map that shows the four western conservative majority provinces, you can see what America should really look like. (Notice how the Canadian map does use BLUE for the good guys, and RED for the commie dastards.) Exception: as usual the Frogs are contrarians. I dunno what that sissy light blue for Kebek is all about.

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.

That map's a little off in my state.

Oakland County is Blue, not red.


Alpena and Manistee Counties are red, not Blue.

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.

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.

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.

Then if you show up in court, tell the judge you must be permitted to stay because the people from Jesusland will get you if he sends you home. That should do it.

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.

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 ... ?

Yeah, I'm not sure how many of the people in Alberta and BC would want to be part of the Democratic People's Republic of Turtle Island TM.

Wouldn't European concepts like "democracy" and "republicanism" be an insult to the quaint indigenous pipples and their various chiefs, kings, and emperors?

"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.

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.
