As a social democrat and an agnostic, thank God I do not live in the US. It's bad enough being in Australia where there's enough of a fringe minority to keep Family First on its feet.

I am seriously contemplating moving out of this country if the executive branch of our government finds itself with another Republican. I honestly do not think I can deal with 4 more of years of this. The last 8 have been a nightmare as far as I'm concerned. When I think about the blatant beating the Constitution has taken, not to mention telling the International Community that they can basically go fuck themselves, it's almost too much for me to mentally cope with. Frustrating is not the word for it.

Moving out of the country might not be the best answer, but, I don't know what more I can do outside of vote, try to encourage others to vote, then grin and bear it if the results are not to my liking.

Sorry for the rant, I'll slink back to the Lemonade Stand where I belong.
I completely understand where you are coming from. Unfortunately, leaving the country is not an option for me. We have some friends who I've spoke about before, that moved to Australia. They follow U.S. politics from afar now, but I'm sure politics has a bit of influence on them leaving. And then my accountant and his family moved to New Zealand last year and is now living it up.

I'll slink back to home base and find you.

NJ doesn't fall in that category. Hillary's got a single-digit lead.

Just watching Mitt Romney now. This guy's nationalistic "the US is the greatest" boasting is absolutely hysterical to an outsider. I have to wonder if he's ever been anywhere else. It sounds like he hasn't got a fucking clue.

That's my problem exactly.

Am agnostic, with a secular Jewish background, as well as the former.

This just often does not feel like the right country for me. I think living in NYC/LA all my life helped, but I'm in the Midwest now, and, I wonder, a lot, if maybe I need to admit that it's time for me to live somewhere that is more representative of how I think when it comes to government and religion, or, government devoid of religious overtones.

Bush had never been to Europe prior to running for President. That tidbit blew me away as he made his bid for the Republican nod.

I'm starting to get pissed off.

It's bad, Axver. It's bad.

There are some Republicans that are legit. I emphasize some.



I don't really have the option of moving yet, being still in high school and looking into colleges. I don't know where I'd go, though.

McCain--Delaware, New Jersey**, Connecticut, Illinois**, New York**, Oklahoma
Romney--Massachusetts, Utah**
Huckabee--West Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama


(* = rather large delegate count + significant-looking victory margin)

(** = winner-take-all state with rather large delegate count, OR significant-looking victory margin in non-winner-take-all state with lots of delegates)
Minnesota can be added for Obama as well.
