So the Wrong Candidate Has Won...

Electing to Leave (

"So the wrong candidate has won, and you want to leave the country. Let us consider your options....."

What a hysterical sentence! That's the first line of the article linked above, and I was laughing before I even got to the end of the sentence just thinking that the article itself was even written! Actually it's a very un-funny and informative article, looking at the process of renouncing your US citizenship and becoming a citizen of another country. They discuss Canada, Mexico, France, the Carribean, and Indian reservations, amongst other options.

I can't say I've never thought about heading to Canada, but that's more for their hockey obsession than any dissatisfaction with the USA. :)

I have a friend (Hi, Deb!) who has recently married a Canadian and moved "up north" and while it sounds like the whole transfer of citizenship process was a pain in the butt, it doesn't sound nearly as bad as the five-year-long process that this article described. So the article may be a bit exaggerated... maybe it's a Republican writing it to discourage the Democrats from leaving! *wink*
