Leaving the Country

| | Comments (0)
A bunch of people say they want to leave the country because of the election results. I have mixed feelings about this.

On the one hand, I decided in my youth that if someone doesn't want to be with me, I didn't want them with me. I think this philosophy saved me from a great deal of angst in middle and high school.

On the other hand, Lincoln used force to prevent a bunch of people leaving the last time. Preservation of the Union is important. While I'd cut loose a "friend" in school who was being a jerk, I would try to maintain a relationship with my brother.

I could flesh these thoughts out more, but I doubt the overwhelming majority of people who say it are serious about it anyway ... which just made me think of this. slashdot.org
