More Liberal than Nancy Pelosi?
Remember some of those in the seats on the left that threatened to move to Canada if George W. Bush was reelected? David Drucker was one of those, only--unlike most of those who threatened to move to Canada--he actually packed up shop and went north of the border.
Even with the recent Democratic election victories, he says in a recent Los Angeles Times column that he's staying put. It seems that Stephen Harper, the Conservative Party Prime Minister of Canada, is better than Nancy Pelosi. This would doubtless be a surprise to some (most?) Canadians.
Part of living in a democracy is accepting that the majority might not agree with you, and that your side might not win an election. Democracies cannot function without this critical decision by those that lose at the ballot box.
I don't recall hearing many Republicans threatening to move to another country if the Democrats took over control of Congress. I wonder how many will threaten to move if a Democrat wins in 2008.
Maybe the old truism is indeed correct. You learn more about someone or some group in their defeats and hardships than in their victories and triumphs.
