    This modern Republican Party is a national disgrace.  Led by George Bush and Karl Rove, it has become the antithesis of everything this country was founded on.

    It is time to get out.  If the voters in this country do not overwhelming show that Americans will not tolerate these criminals, I cannot see myself remaining a citizen.  

    The shame I have for my country grows by the day.

    "But your flag decal won't get you into heaven anymore"--Prine Pay attention Georgie - 2500+ dead Americans. Jesus Christ, make it stop already.

    •  I'm not ashamed of this country (6+ / 0-)

      not yet

      but I am ashamed of the millions of American sheeple who let this shit fly by unchallenged and unexamined.  Yet most of the same idiots who wouldn't know Karl Rove from FDR can name every second-string Hollywood "celebrity," who they're banging, and who they're divorcing.  Sick.

      ... except we can't allow you to leave. Because there's nowhere to leave TO. We all live on this little blue marble, there is no other place for us.

      Probably we all have the "I'm outta here" fantasy sometimes.  But I really think we are called to remain here, true Americans, battling the beast on behalf of the entire world.

        who is always threatening to leave to move to someplace "better."
        At first it was going to be Canada, but then Harper was elected, so now she is thinking Australia or England.

        I realize that many people have successfully moved and are happy, but I pointed out to her that if we dont stay and fight,
        the Bush disease will spread world wide and there wont be any place to go to.

        Illegitimi non carborundum-- Don't let the bastards wear ya down!

    •  I'm right there with you, Miss Blue. (0+ / 0-)

      And unfortunately, given my financial woes since GW took office, I don't envision being able to move from this country any time soon.
