This surely sounds like those America-hating limp-wristed commie pinko liberals who said they were moving to Canada if Bush got elected (or selected or what-have-you) and they're still here eight years later.

Oh yes, let's be sure to throw in the ol' "You're a mother?" B.S., as if somehow, giving birth to my babies has somehow made me less cynical of the political machine. Take the blinders off, honey.

Your twisted misreading is unbelievable. Here let me explain it to you like you are a two year old. The point is that someone who is a mother would essentially imply that Obama's grandmother isn't sick enough or dying according to a timetable that you feel is acceptable. Nothing's sacred for you obviously, not even a grandmother and her relationship to her grandson. You, as a mother, should know better. The fact that you don't, especially when using the "I'm a mother" persecution complex, is frightening.

I have discussed moving to Mexico with the fiance, we would live very confortably there, but I wouldnt do it because Obama won, we're considering it due to the high tax base, lack of personal responsibilities, and the give me mentality is driving me bonkers here.
Have fun having no personal rights then, except for those that you can buy with a $20 bill slipped to the cop. I'm in Mexico everyday (well literally 5-6 days a week). I have a lot of Mexican friends. I have traveled all through Mexico via plane and car. It's a ok place with lots of beauty and potential, but you couldn't pay me to live here. People don't even use the mail because everyone knows it can't be trusted. The carriers will go through your mail, or if you're lucky it may get delivered 3-4 weeks after you drop it off. That's something you take for granted in the US and you would assume you could take for granted anywhere, right? Not here. This is one simple example of MANY I could tell you.

Visiting a resort in a 3rd world country and living in one are not the same.

PS - oh and don't forget the drug war that's ravaging the border and is happening all across mexico. It's only been going on for almost a year now with no end in sight.

Oh my god. I just saw your "my status." I have to rep you for that!!! Quite possibly one of the funniest and most cleverest comebacks I've seen on city-data.

Hmmmm.

Well, when Bush won not once but twice, I didn't cry, move to Canada, scream conspiracy theory, threaten that the new president would ruin the country (maybe I should have? Guess I'm just not very good with that sixth-sense thing), fire innocent workers as a retaliatory "I told you so!" self-fulfilling prophecy, make up lies about him, get drunk or riot.

I sighed and showered and went to work and realized the President isn't the only voice of the country.

Let's hope disappointed McCain voters will pretty much do the same.
