Todays Drudge Report has a Reuters news item, Americans Flock to Canadas Immigration Web site, The spin by this news service (Reuters) is that Americans, going to this site, want to become Canadians because they are so disappointed with the outcome of Tuesdays election.
I doubt their spin, but lets examine the benefits we (and Canada) will enjoy if the Blame America First Crowd (or BAFC) pick up their marbles, and move to Canada. Naturally, they will want to go to Quebec and learn French, so that they can feel even closer to the American-hating Jaques Cherac and his pals.
1) First, the average IQ of Americans and that of the citizens of Quebec will both increase -- tremendously. This BAFC would have to include most of the dumbest Americans who, when they arrived in Quebec, would still be smarter than those who allowed them to come there.
2) Most of the BAFC lives in the blue areas of the United States so, when these people move to Canada, opposition to their ideas will increase in the blue areas and give other members of the BAFC a reason to join their friends, who first moved to Canada. (And it would be nice if they took the United Nations Headquarters with them.)
3) As more and more of the BAFC move north, they will add to the strength of the Canadian socialists. And as the socialists and their BAFC friends get stronger, many conservative Canadians will be forced to leave the Canada they (used to) love, and move south where the environment is more friendly. (Which would cause the average IQ of Canadians to drop, even further.)
Forty years ago, the same thing happened to the Democrats. They compared themselves to a big tent, that could satisfy all voters, no matter how liberal or conservative those voters might be. Republicans also tried to be a big tent; thus was born the saying, Not a Dimes Worth of Difference between parties.
But while the Democrats talked a great game, their efforts were concentrated toward the wants of the liberals, from whom Democrats obtained most of their power and influence. And as they did so, the most liberal extremists joined their cause, which changed the environment, formerly enjoyed by conservative Democrats.
Thus, the Democrats forced many of their former conservative Democrat members to move, and become some of the best Republicans, we have today.
Forty years ago, Texas was part of the Democrats Solid South. From the end of the Civil War, and Reconstruction) only two Republicans had represented Texas in Congress -- US Representative Bruce Alger and Senator John Tower.
I met a young Texas legislator who, in 1966, was switching to the Republican Party and running for Congress, as a Republican. His name was Bill Archer. Bill, now retired, was Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, for many years -- and I had the pleasure of being represented by him for much of his tenure.
So I say, to the BAFC. You are free to move to Canada, if you want to. I hope you never live to regret your decision. And while you are in Canada, do send us some of their fine conservatives, who understand what freedom is, and want to help us preserve ours.
