    Im not. We would have to figure it out. I personally, would be happy to move somewhere if that meant living in a society that actually reflects my desire for freedom. Thats why I live in florida and not california. People would have to choose whether to stay where they are and accept the new rules of freedom (or facism if you live in the liberal country) or move.

    Not completely, but take the energy market for example. He favors subsidizing some products, and taxing/restricting others, and monopolizing others. That in effect gets rid of competition. His policies for redistribution of wealth get rid of capital accumulation. His support for welfare, unemployment compensation and minimum wages, not to mention tons of other regulations on wage labor mess with wage labor. You simply cant call this pro-capitalism.

    I've seen Nip/Tuck and Facism is much worse in Florida than California.

    Is the message getting through yet? Try switching on the spell check.

    and I can assure you that many of us who remain would be equally happy with such a decision.
