The Threat of Leaving

It always amazes in election years....that people come up and say that if so-and-so wins.....they are moving to Canada or some foreign country.

Prior to the Bush-Gore election....you just didn't have this type of stupid threat made by people.  Now?  You probably get at least forty VIP or entertainment folks who make the threat....usually if the Republican wins.  It's rare that some idiot Republican vows to leave the US if the Democrat wins.

My brother brought it up this week.....Barbra Streisand vowed to move to Australia if Trump wins.  My question originally with this.....has she ever been to Australia?  I mean....maybe around Sydney...seventy-five percent of folks are liberal-types and hyped on social stuff.....but once you leave town and head out into other regions.....most of Australia in my humble opinion is kinda conservative....like mid-west US.

Do these people ever research where they say they are going?  Maybe they made a trip there in the 1990s and remember the place fondly.

Did any of those folks who talked of going to Canada ever go?  As far as I know.....no one ever left.

No one ever says they will move to Mexico or Ireland or Argentina.....don't know why.

I came up last night and thought of this new idea.....a TV show based on some idiot who made the threat to leave the US, and actually ends up in some imaginary Central American country.....which they thought was paradise (by the description on the brochure) and it turned out to be some minor-league dictatorship.  It'd be a four-year show....which the guy would eventually have to be rescued....by the US Marines led by the guy who forced him into leaving.

My suggestion to folks who want to make such a threat.....you'd best know this country that you say you will be heading off to very well.....because if you get there and discover they are hyped-up conservatives to the max.....well, that will be a big problem.
