Moby asked on his blog why the blue states can't simply leave America and become breakaway republics. Chad just sent me a map that offers another suggestion. The one thing the election results promise is that it will be another generation or two before Canada and the US are ever one country. America wouldn't want us, because if we had been a new state we'd have pushed Kerry into winning (Republicans don't want an influx of northerns who are even more liberal than those in New York and Washington state) and as much as we in Canada like That 70s' Show we're a long way off of becoming a new theocracy.
It was easy to believe we were the same when it was Bill Clinton calling the shots.
