America needs you more than ever

Many Americans have expressed their desire to leave the U.S. now that terrorist-in-chief George W. Bush has been re-elected. The Canadian immigration website has been flooded with visitors, and it’s the same with the New Zealand site. And while I understand their desire to get out of their country I think their departure would be more harmful than good.

America is filled with loonies who think the invasion of Iraq is protecting them from terrorism and that God was responsible for Bush’s victory, with your absence America will only get crazier. America needs people like you! It needs people who actually think! If there is a mass-exodus of intelligent people I don’t want to even think about what the 2008 election will be like.

You’ve got to stay and fight. I know it must be extremely disheartening knowing that 59 million of your fellow citizens are brainless, but giving up the fight will only make them stronger. Show the Bush cronies that you’re not going to take it. Nelson Mandela never left South Africa: he stayed and fought. It might take a long time, but as long as you’re there hope stays alive.

America needs you more than ever; so don’t let your country down. Stay, fight and turn your country back into what it once was.
