For those that want to leave, good riddance

I have little patience for people that claim they will leave the country because their candidate lost. I liken them to spoiled children that throw a temper tantrum when they don’t get their way. Instead of staying and fighting for what they believe in, they run away to such their thumb and hide in their blankey. I’m pleased to see them leave.

They aren’t real Americans. Real Americans don’t run away from a fight. Real Americans have a spine they stand up for what they believe in, even when they lose. They compete with others in the arena of ideas.

By compete I don’t mean name-calling or using simple campaign slogans. By competing in the arena of ideas I mean debating based on logic, reality, and human nature.

Those that want to go to Canada are wimpy spoiled children. That’s trying the eat your cake and have it too. If they really wanted to make a statement they should move to France, like Pierre Salinger did.
