What to do if you don’t like the outcome next Tuesday

Often times, white people get frustrated with the state of their country. They do not like the President, or Congress, or the health care system, or the illegal status of Marijuana. Whenever they are presented with a situation that seems unreasonable to them, their first instinct is to threaten to move to Canada.

For example, if you are watching TV with white people and there is a piece on the news about that they do not agree with, they are likely to declare “ok, that’s it, I’m moving to Canada.”

Though they will never actually move to Canada, the act of declaring that they are willing to undertake the journey is very symbolic in white culture. It shows that their dedication to their lifestyle and beliefs are so strong, that they would consider packing up their entire lives and moving to a country that is only slightly different to the one they live in now.

Within white culture, it is agreed upon that if Canada had better weather it would be a perfect place.

  1. Here’s my question: who’s to say we’re going to take you?

    Damn straight. You guys voted for Bush. Twice.

    But if you bring a few NHL franchises north with you, maybe we’ll let you stay.

  2. The SWPL book is ranked #554 on Amazon.com book sales, what a profitable idea that blog turned out to be.

  3. Isn’t this only for single white people who don’t like the current Republican/right wingish/hawkish government? What threat is de rigeur for those who dislike the current Democrat/socialist government? Surely Canada can’t be an option in that case.

  4. I’ve heard a few republicans say they will move to Canada if Obama wins. It didn’t make sense to me either, but then I’m pretty ignorant to Canadian politics.

    Will you take a disgrunteld Norwegian?
