Sure. It should take them about three years after they file the immigration request. Unless they think they can just show up like its their right.

On a slightly off-topic note, Republicans should consider moving to a country known for "conservative values" such as Japan or South Korea and Taiwan (anti-communist government), maybe the Philippines where the cost of living for the USDollar is relatively cheap. I don't know about moving to Mexico when millions of its citizens moved north to this country, what Republicans escaping Obama want is a free market capitalist system and strong sociocultural values...enjoy living in the third world, known for some real authoritarian regimes not for the light of heart of Libertarianism. If you're into the economy, you would move to China in a heartbeat...even if it's hardline socialist.

LOL, that would be hilarious!   Although, if I remember correctly, didn't the US want to build a fence so that drug dealers couldn't get in form Canada a while back?

I recall watching an episode of "American Dad" when Stan was stationed in Saudi Arabia and he fell in love with a place shares much of his right-wing moral values. But be advised saudi Arabia and the oil-rich Persian Gulf nation-states (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the UAE) are under a fundamentalist Islamic culture where things like alcohol and pork are forbidden, and women are ordered to follow strict gender roles or under custodial supervision of their husbands or male relatives. Saudi Arabia is the most observant of Wabhabism where the rules are strictly enforced by the Muwadein (sp?) or morality police, the kingdom is notorious in human rights violations such as the treatment and religious liberties of its' guest workers, mostly from India and southern Asia.

Actually, what makes them think they can just move here?  Unless their plan is to be illegal aliens, they aren't going to be having an easy time of it.
I'll bet Canada, unlike us, doesn't coddle her illegals, either.

What about the developed southern hemisphere nations like New Zealand and Australia, they're among the most developed and democratic lands in the world ("we speak English, mates"). South Africa has an economic boom and the highest standard of living in Africa, then it has went into some sort of decline after the oppressive Apartheid regime ended 18 years ago. And the European-influenced portions of South America: Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay will make an American expatriate quite comfortable.

Santiago, Chile is a fine example of the economic growth and newfound prosperity in the third world in recent decades. Economic policies favored by conservative and Libertarian groups in the USA will make them feel right at home.

Oh, yes, we do, unfortunately, but, maybe because they are more accepted here, we don't have the degree of racial tension in Canada.

If Repubs are threating to move to Canada, the real reason is because of all that pornographic Canadian money you guys are making up there. :D

As has already been pointed out - they just wouldn't like it, in fact they would FREAK.
- Gun control, nobody owns guns unless they are a farmer or member of a shooting club with a special licences (aka: the minority)
- Carbon Tax - that's right, Australia is trying to "save the planet" by taxing us out of carbon dependency
- Our PM is an Atheist and unmarried but living with her defacto partner - not exactly a conservative candidate.
- We pay for universal health care through our tax system AND I personally like the fact that my tax dollars are making sure underprivileged kids with luekemia are getting the treatment they need, regardless whether their parents have worked a day in their life and I wouldn't begrudge said parents having their lives saved by my tax dollar either.  Many of us think the FIRST thing government should do is value people's lives above all else (weird huh?)
- Voting is compulsory and you will be fined if you don't show up and at least put an "X" on a page.
- We have scaled tax rates, the more you earn the higher your tax bracket :whistle: . Top tax bracket is around the 48% mark :yes:

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.

In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Well, there's a bumper crop of whine from the Republican vineyards this year, but I'm afraid it won't be very tasty, what with all the sour grapes. :passifier:

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.
