On March 10th of this year, during a press conference from the Rose Garden, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer and Canada’s baby-faced Prime Minister Justin Trudeau exchanged a little giggle about the panicky liberals who “claim” they plan to move to Canada if Donald Trump is elected president.
Neve Campbell, Whoopi Goldberg, Raven Simone, Cher, Jon Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson, Al Sharpton, Rosie O’Donnell, Miley Cyrus, George Lopez and Eddie Griffin so far have expressed their desire to leave America.
But there’s a greater migration underway even before there’s a president Trump. The story garnered a blaring headline on The Drudge Report that linked to the Forbes story.
Every three months, the Treasury Department publicly names individuals who have renounced their citizenship. The published number of expatriates for the first three months of 2016 was a record 1,158. In 2015, there were approximately 4,300 expatriations. Comparing present to past suggests Americans renouncing citizenship have risen 560% from their Bush administration high. There are now 18 times as many renouncers as in 2008. Hear that Barry?
According to Rolling Stone, 300,000 American pioneers settled in the Canadian prairies in the early 20th century; and some 240,000 American draft-dodgers and war resisters arrived during the Vietnam War. An estimated 200 Iraq War resisters have taken refuge north since the war began in 2004.
If these liberal crybabies are serious about moving to Canuckistan, they’d better keep in mind that the IRS and FBI keep track of Americans who renounce their citizenship and, listen carefully you pusswads, the IRS has the power to revoke your passport.
