Leaving the USA

Everybody's heard friends joke about leaving the country if Bush wins. Why would anybody say that? Fear of being thrown in jail for wearing a Kerry/Edwards t-shirt? Fear of loss of other civil liberties? Fear of being sick and unable to afford health care. Fear of terrorists setting off a nuclear bomb near a major city. Disgust with corporate news media. Disgust with the education system. Disgust with the transportation system.

How's that for starters?

What other option is there, dropping out?
