Worried about Presidential election outcome? Here’s why fleeing America for Canada isn’t the answer

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder

A message for my American friends: Stop threatening to move to Canada if your preferred presidential candidate doesn’t win.

I love Americans and America but celebrities threatening to move to Canada at election time, is wearing a little thin.

There was Alec Baldwin’s threat to come if George W. Bush won back in 2000. In 2004, it was Robert Redford leading the celebrity charge with thousands checking our immigration department website causing American visits to rise six fold the day after the election. In 2012 when Obama was up for re-election, Conservatives and Republicans made the threat.

I don’t know anyone that actually moved but I do know some that looked at property, and now it’s happening again.

Americans aren’t happy about their choices: a crazy old socialist, a crazy old liar or Donald Trump, but Canada isn’t your answer, especially if your name is Myley Cyrus, Al Sharpton, Rosie O’Donnell or Whoopi Goldberg.

Haven’t we taken in enough crazy celebrities already? If they keep threatening to come, I’m going to start sounding like the guy that wants to build that BIG wall.

I’m sick of being promised something and then not getting it. Every election big and not so big name celebrities, threaten to come to Canada and then back away slowly. We’re like the girl you secretly make out with at a party but don’t want your friends to see.

Stay home unless you’re coming for the right reasons, like helping us get rid of our problem politicians like Prime Minister Zoolander.

Canada has its own unqualified celebrity politician who was voted into the highest office in the land. Sure he’s pretty, but that doesn’t mean he can speak.

Still think fleeing from America to Canada is the answer?

Our new Prime Minister would not please you Democrats at all.
He doesn’t even comb his hair.
And he says “uh” after every 5 or ten words.
His primary goal in life is to take as many selfie pictures as possible.

The cost of housing in Canada is astronomical.
You could probably only afford a run down tenement with cockroaches and defective heating that can mean freezing during our unbearably cold, sub zero winters.

I agree with Bravo Zulu – I believe that there will be an attempt on Trump’s life. After watching the videos posted here on The Rebel: Robert Spencer, Hillary and Free Speech, and Pamela Geller with Spencer on Post America, it is plain to see what Obama has been up to and I doubt his puppeteers will allow Donald to get in. Americans believed that voting for Obama was to see a black president get elected. What they got was a Muslim. When the Clintons are involved people tend to go missing, turn up dead, or “suicide” – Trump apparently has been wearing a bullet proof vest.

Makes me laugh all these celebrities saying they’ll move to Canada. As if.
If they were more than 10 minutes away from the Hollywood paparazzi they’d all die from withdrawal symptoms.

Miley Cyrus thinks the US would be a sad place if Donald Trump is POTUS? She’s really gonna be disappointed when she realizes where she’ll spend eternity

I think a Clinton win would end up the same as a Trudeau, Notley or Wynne win.
commented 2016-03-05 15:11:50 -0500
does baby boy Trudeau have its own brain? or just puppets to the old gen liberals! i did not vote for liberals!!!

The advantage is to come to the US.

The advantage is that the Republicans will retain control of the Congress.

The advantage is that all the states in the Union retain sovereignty through States’ Rights.

The advantage is the Washington D.C. is powerless and that powerlessness will only grow.

The advantage is that in the majority of the states gun ownership is protected under their respective state constitutions and courts. Right to own is protected as is the Right to Carry and Conceal.

The advantage is that there are over 300 million civilian owned firearms in the US.

The advantage is that the vast majority of US military personnel are from and are based in the Red States.

The advantage is that Freedom is real in the US and the Progressive-Sodomites will die if they try to take it.

The advantage is that in the US there is a history of dealing with disobedient politicians by assassination. It’s a proud history that is sure to continue.

Obama administration sold more weapons then any other administration, and racked up the most debt. Clinton should be in jail for Benghazi, she should not even be on the ballot. And these celebrities are worried about good ole Trump. Give me a break.

This is a non-story, or rather, a contrived story.
A couple of broadcasters throw out the BS that “many Americans” are “considering” emigrating to Canada. Predictably, thousands of people who heard the BS Google “moving to Canada” and within 24 hours the same media slorks are then handed their next headline of their own creation: “Enquiries about moving to Canada up 1,500 percent”.
commented 2016-03-05 07:15:52 -0500
If Hillary wins, there won’t be an influx. Conservative Americans I know would never move here. The Constitution is too precious to them and they will hang onto it until it’s totally dead, or until civil war breaks out.

If Donald wins, there will be a massive influx of Mexicans and Muslims to Canada, along with a negligible amount of liberal hipster white collars. We’ll be even more hooped than we are now and at that point I would seriously consider taking a vacation to Florida and never returning

William Devane won’t be comming….we don’t have any gold left to sell.

Word from our great Dicktraitor Justy. Only Muslim Americans are welcome to come to Canadistan.
commented 2016-03-04 21:49:41 -0500
If you are going to warn the Americans, then use something more scary than a word pronounced wrong. Have the Americans tune into some news on the mainstream channels. That ought to scare them off for good.
commented 2016-03-04 21:36:26 -0500
Can’t you just see Donald Trump as President after his first meeting with Justin, who has gone on and on with his double talk and ums….The Donald will turn to his aid and say….‘what did he say?’.

Must be a slow news day today; Brian’s patronizing whining movie stars like a tabloid.

commented 2016-03-04 19:05:10 -0500
Silly Americans… you are about to get rid of the worst president the US has ever had while us idiots up here have just elected the worst PM we’ve ever had … be glad you can see the light at the end of your tunnel….
commented 2016-03-04 18:40:12 -0500
Let’em come we’ll tax the hell out of them! Eh!

People that would move to Canada if Trump is elected?

We sure as heck do not need more of THOSE kind of people.

Limp wristed and weak dicked – just like the average Canadian the the selfie boy loves. More wasted and walking skin.

I can only hope that Trump has stellar security.

He is becoming a target – a big target – a serious target.

He is going to turn the entire house upside down and give it a good cleaning – starting with a real and no holds barred obama investigation.

That cleaning is well and truly needed.

And it is my belief there will be an attempt – I would not have said that until the Mittens speech – now I think even his own folks are afraid for him.

And the potentials are from both sides of the spectrum

Rep and Dem – plus a bunch of others.

I can only hope nothing happens – if it does I believe there will be serious violence in the US of A.

A lot of foreign interests would like that as well.

Best to all.

Right on Brian!! Trump looks like rocket scientist next to pretty boy.

I heard from Canadian broadcasters how shocking it was that US Repulican candidates were sparring about body parts. None of these broadcasters seems to remember one of the candidates in our federal contest musing about ‘whipping out our 3F18s’. Think he will embarrass us again on Sunday evening on 60 Minutes when he says Americans need to know more about the world. Well, excuse me Junior ex club bouncer, America is the leader of the free world. But perhaps everyone will be charmed by his vainglorious self. Can’t wait to see the panting CBC coverage all next week.

OMG…and I was checking out the US or anywhere last fall when I thought ..yuk..Tru…can’t say it, was actually winning!!! At least the US has a chance of having a republican government. Let’s hope, whomever is the GOP winner, all Republicans vote for him and don’t throw their votes away. None of the candidates are strong, but better than electing H. Clinton.

We don’t want more Leonardo’s moving to Vancouver and telling the world, see, I told you there’s no snow! Something white on top of the hills after it rains, hmm!

No, I’m not proud to be Canadian anymore. Why would anyone want to move here now….if they think Trump is the dictator type, they haven’t done their research on this country’s dictator.

Andrew, I know an American family from Boston that have their kids in our Christian school. On one hand they said they voted Obama, but on the other hand complain about the crappy healthcare system we have in Canada. You just can’t make this stuff up. Maybe one day they will connect those dots.
commented 2016-03-04 16:34:42 -0500
I will give Bernie credit in that he really did take part in Civil rights marches way back in the 60s. Clinton on the other hand is a lying snake. Of course those actors never did and never would move here. They know they have it good in the US. There is nowhere left to hide, with possibly the exceptions of South Korea or Switzerland, both which may be more free than us. And they also have their challenges.
commented 2016-03-04 16:19:45 -0500
I’d take a US citizenship over a Canadian any day of the week. That’s why there are over 2M Canadians living and working in the US.

Americans would spend a week in Canada, puke and go home.

Democrats are our version of Liberals. We have more than enough of them already who are responsible for the mess we now find ourselves in. Stay in America and fix your own country as we don’t exactly want your democrat left wing socialist philosophies being drug north. We have a combination of both Hilary and Bernie running the show up here now and we are headed for a disaster.
