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.

    The Canadians don't want Trump the trouble maker in their country,may be he can move to Iran with his hate and lies,they will just throw him jail and that will be the end of this trouble maker.

    Let's see if I've got this right ...

    TeaPers blame Romney (although they put him on the ticket), and

    Romney blames polling outlets (although President Obama always held an EC advantage), and

    Romney investors blame Karl Rove, and

    Karl Rove blames Hurricane Sandy, and

    FOX News blames ... well, FOX News blames ... stuff, and

    Limbaugh and Dick Morris don't know whom to blame ... they're too busy explaining to their viewers why they actually didn't lie to them when stating it would be a Romney landslide when in fact they were lying through their teeth.

    And we are only into day 3 of post election GOPerville hangover.

    What are they waiting for? The inauguration and believe that it is true he got the second term! Move now take your noises with you and let the country remain in peace.

    Who says Canada wants a Diaspora of hate-filled, unread Tea Party mongrels to pollute their country like they already do in the U.S?

    For those who threw out accusations of Communism, Marxism, Socialism; and any other term they learned on the History Channel but don’t fully understand; why don’t they move to a country where your Basic Human Rights will not be respected? In other words, why stop at Canada?

    While abroad I've met people who have had their limbs severed in front of their families for speaking their minds. I doubt your average Conservative Red State Walmart/Dollar Store Racist is willing to make that sacrifice.

    I have never heard a conservative say they would go to Canada. Please. Most people love the States and are excited to be here each and every day the next four years to fight against Obama's policies. The financial cliff is coming and that is going to be fun. Thats another post but its going to be painful for most.

    Hehe...politics and elections wouldn't be any fun without the hyperbole. We just need to learn how to keep the hyperbole far more honest. That said, keep in mind that this is a staple of American POTUS elections. Candidates in the past have been accused of everything from cannibalism to devil worhip. It would help if the MSM wasn't so utterly corrupted, disfunctional and self-serving...such that it actually encourages people to believe these kinds of things, rather than having the journalistic integrity to help steer the public discourse towards sanity, reasonableness and rationality with accurate information, facts, numbers, expert opinions and historical record. They certainly PRETEND to do just that, but the obvious sensationalism and false equivalencies belie any claim that it's anything more than just a facade.

    @Larry IN Houston

    The outcome of the election was a very bitter pill to swallow to GOP. My republican friend hardly sleeps and has lost appetite to eat since Tuesday night up to now.

    "Most people love the States" ... "The financial cliff is coming and that is going to be fun"

    You love this country enough to laugh at a "financial cliff" scenario? Interesting.
