i've never gotten involved in politics much at all. in fact, usually, whenever someone starts talking about it, my eyes immediately glaze over and my mind starts humming 'i can't hear you i can't hear you' to the tune of 'mary had a little lamb'.

but this election.... egads. things are getting ugly and horrific. our government, from everything i read, is threatening another terrorist attack on us, if we vote for kerry. that, to me, is a threat. that, to me, makes it sound more like a dictatorship than a democracy. 'do as we tell you, or you will be smited!'

after dealing with all of the unemployment of the last few years, of dealing with dropped sales because people can't afford to go out and shop, of hearing accusation after accusation towards other countries, after seeing country after country either come to hate us, or get in trouble for assisting us...

i just want to shake everyone and scream 'THE LAST FOUR YEARS OBVIOUSLY HAVEN'T WORKED OUT!!!! IT'S TIME TO TRY SOMETHING NEW!!!!'

i mean, the definition of insanity is 'continuing the same action and expecting a different reaction', isn't it!?

grah.

It's going to be hard. I'm already looking into it. You either need to be a skilled worker (not so easy) or have $300K to put into a business (even harder) or have a family member sponser you. You can find the info at: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index.html

i'm wondering how many people actually DID leave the country?

looking back at all of this, and remembering how much very vocal SUPPORT that kerry had from so many people, especially republicans, i'm still amazed that he lost.

I don't know -- I think the Canadian Govt actually has been pretty uncooperative about letting people emigrate because they don't really want an influx of United Stateians (I can't really say "Americans" cos they're North Americans too) coming into the country.

I'm still amazed he lost but it's really incredible what a well orchestrated smear campaign plus lots of small incidents of vote tampering, intimidation and other shennanigans will do to fix an election.

i also wonder how many people VOTED for that man in office that are currently silently screaming 'WHAT DID I DOOOOO' as different decisions he's making are coming to light.

egads, that man scares me.

it still amazes me that we lost, after everything i had known going up to the election.

not much we can do NOW... except prepare for 2008...

no freaking doubt, though it LOOKS like it's just 'two years' (it being in '08 and it currently being '06 and all..) it's still ... wow. i've seen how drastically my life can change in two WEEKS, let alone all the stuff that can happen to a nation in two YEEEARS.

shiat, we're doomed.
