Election season bluster: Threats to move to Canada, a Trump call for 'revolution!'

(CNN) - It happens every four years, usually right around September.

Calls come in from all over the United States from people threatening to flee their homeland if a candidate they despise wins the Oval Office.

    Please feel to leave. But i do not think the Canadians would welcome backward thinking people.

    There are a number of citizens, who feel that the people no longer are patriots, but rather self serving free loaders.

    They are sick of living in a country that continues to deteriorate, because of that fact. They simply don't like the people very much.

    Can't say that I blame them at all.

    Republicans, please keep in mind that we had to endure eight long years of that drooling idiot George W. Bush. You remember him – the guy who created this mess.

    Four (4) four foreign born wives and Trump calls for a Revolution, he needs to start that revolution right inside his own house. America has been good to Trump, maybe it's time for him to move before he ask for another bankruptcy bailout.

    I heard that President-Elect Obama sent Trump a copy of his Electoral College transcripts.

    The Republicans are going to Canada for the Universal Health Care and the 46% combined tax rate. Its nothing like ObamaCare.

    Call it a joke if you want, but I had my passport and bags packed in the case Willard won. I'm not sure if I would've fled to Canada, but I sure the hell was gettting the hell up out of here. Speaking of relocating, why hasn't Rush lived up to his promise and moved to Costa Rica yet?

    I say let the door knob hit you where the good Lord split you. And take Trump, Hank Williams Jr, and Ted Nugent with you.

    There's nothing worse than people who've been proven wrong, trying to press their point by making volatile remarks, aimed at volatile people who feel that they've been wronged in some shape or form by the democratic system. These agitators never physically participate in the fights they promote, but they sure love having their names and faces in the news. If Trump doesn't like his lot in life, he needs to think about change. One change that comes to mind, move to a country where he feels at home. Maybe there's a place where being bankrupt and in dept is admired.

    I thought about moving to Canada if Romney won. There was no way he was going to send my son to war while his sat on their behinds and became profiteers off of it.

  21. Wake up People!

    People like Trump need to sit down and shut up. He is only relevant in his own mind. But that saddest thing of all is people actually listen to these whackos.

    Case in point, I have taken to watching bits and pieces of FOX Noise. What a bunch of whackjobs. I think it was Hannity I was watching yesterday. Now I know why the trolls here think like they do. Because FOX Noise has it's own reality. I couldn't believe my ears, he was actually attempting to portray Willard as a victim. WTH?? A victim of"Chicago style politics". He had the audacity to claim Willard ran a classy campaign but all President Obama did was attack him. Who in their right mind would believe that? Do the FOXbots not believe their own eyes and ears?? Did they not watch Willard DECIMATE Newt and Santorum?? All the while attacking President Obama daily??? So the POTUS wasn't allowed to fight back?? How are these people allowed to spew lies and hatred and call it news??? Poor Walter Cronkite has to have turned over in his grave so much, he has to be in China by now.

    These people are dangerous extremists bordering on treason. This should not be allowed.
