“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Too bad all the millions of whiny liberals who threatened/promised to move to Canada after Bush was re-elected didn't follow through on their promises, we wouldn't have had to deal with ObamaCare in the first place. We wouldn't have had to deal with Obama either, for that matter.
Why is it Americans both, Liberal and Conservative say if this doesn't happen or if so and so is/isn't elected that they are gonna move to Canada. Come on guys can't you leave us alone and go to mexico instead.

Renunciation of U.S. Citizenship
A list of Embassies, Consulates and Diplomatic MissionsB. ELEMENTS OF RENUNCIATION
A person wishing to renounce his or her U.S. citizenship must voluntarily and with intent to relinquish U.S. citizenship:
appear in person before a U.S. consular or diplomatic officer,
in a foreign country (normally at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate); and
sign an oath of renunciation
Renunciations that do not meet the conditions described above have no legal effect. Because of the provisions of section 349(a)(5), Americans cannot effectively renounce their citizenship by mail, through an agent, or while in the United States. In fact, U.S. courts have held certain attempts to renounce U.S. citizenship to be ineffective on a variety of grounds, as discussed below.
