Vermont to join Canada?

Check this site out:

http://www.vermontcanada.org/

A good laugh indeed!

Hmmm, they've failed to mention that we're a bilingual country...I wonder if Vermont would really be willing to put up signs in French?

I doubt this will happen, it's all politics. No sense in leaving the country just because of an election result.

who needs to deal with a long, costly immigration process when you could just secede?

c'est drôle, bien sûr!

Good point blueyedpoet... I don't think the liberals would be too happy either. Unless of course California, New York, and Massachusetts decide to join Canada as well. I don't see a need for it, I think anyone who does is overreacting to the election. When are we going to stop this "I'm going to move to Canada" talk? My guess - in four years.

i think its intended as a joke more than anything else.

besides we'll have to vet them to make sure they are liberal enough.

I bet it is a joke. But... all this "let's turn Canadian over the election" nonsense kind of ruined it for me.

Wannabe is right....in four years democrats will probably win again. what country will get republicans dissatisfied with the results? oh yeah, the Confederacy....

It might've just been me, but I don't remember people talking about leaving the country very often when Clinton was president.

i think that's because Clinton was much more of a centrist than a liberal, and Bush is much more of a conservative than a centrist.

but as a former New Englander, let's give it up for VT! great state -- beautiful, rural, unpolluted, great skiing, maple syrup, and tolerant.

yay Vermont!

I agree with you, Clinton is closer to the center than Bush is. Clinton is still arguably the most liberal president we've ever had though, and I think his debating skills and charisma played a huge part in him becoming president. Although, PLENTY of people couldn't stand him, whether it'd be his policies, his wife's role, and that whole Monica thing shook people up pretty good too.

Plenty of people disliked Clinton, and plenty of people equally dislike Bush, but I don't see how this could lead to the whole moving to Canada thing, unless Kerry sold them the whole draft propaganda. I don't see a draft coming anytime soon, I doubt Bush wants one either.
