Escape the United States: A Survival Kit in Case McCain-Palin Are Elected
Posted Sep 22 2008 10:38am
Folks, things are not looking good for those of us who do not want to experience another four years of the same old, shameful, war-mongering, anti-choice, idiotic, right-wing, neocon, fundamentalist, corporately-funded, Republican Regime in the White House.
Those of us who cherish freedom, human rights, mercy, women's rights, reproductive freedom (including birth control, which is not the same thing as abortion, Sarah Palin), peace, co-existence, environmentalism, and other basic tenets of living an ethical life, need to consider something. Do we really want to spend our one and only lifetime in the United States? Do we want to be here when McCain-Palin start World War III, and every country with nukes around the world (which they got from us), starts attacking the U.S.?
Do we really want to continue to pledge allegience to "one nation under God", when God is used to justify homophobia, hate crimes, subordination of women, war on people who have religions other than Christianity, racism, stereotyping, sexism, and other forms of hatred?
Do we really feel that we are in the best possible place for us to be living, if this place is going to be led by the right-wing neocons who are responsible for nothing less than global destruction?
Folks, the time for taking matters into your own hands is here. We must flee, and we must flee quickly, if McCain-Palin are elected. Women, especially, should fear the loss of Roe v. Wade. Therefore, with your best interests in mind, I have compiled the below Survival Kit for Escaping the United States if McCain-Palin are Elected in November.
Women, especially, should look into nations where women are leaders, have been leaders, or have a chance of becoming leaders. The United States, as you might be aware, has NEVER had a female President. I have included in the survival kit, a list of countries that have been or currently are, led by women. Don't vote for Palin like a dog begging for scraps on the kitchen floor. She might have female chromosomes, but a feminist she is NOT. She does not care about women's rights, and in fact, hates women's rights. We need to exercise our Right to Exit the Imperialist Empire that the United States has become, in the event that McCain-Palin are elected.
