Just Go To Russia Already

Memo to all you right-wingers talking about "Going Galt" by quitting your jobs and leaving the country: just friggin' do it already.

Give Russia a try. It is just the sort of right-wing, pro-private sector country with lots of wide open spaces that you would love.

You have destroyed five million jobs and are trying to cause another eight million people to lose their homes.  The jobs you quit, and the homes you leave, could be put to better use by the people who you made unemployed and homeless.

You titans of industry did such a bang-up job running the country, that I am sure we will struggle without you. However, it is no less than we deserve. After all, it was our own irresponsibility, not yours, that led to this crisis. We no longer deserve to share a country with people who are so utterly superior to us in every way.

If Russia isn't to your liking, and you would prefer a small island nation like the original John Galt, then maybe you could try Singapore. It is pretty right-wing and pro-capitalist. Give it a shot.

Just do it already. The only thing more irritating than people who are constantly threatening to leave the country but never actually leave are when people who actively destroyed the country are threatening to leave but never actually do. You already shat on us, now either get off the pot or stop talking about getting off the pot.

So seriously, just go to Russia already. You have no idea how long this left-winger has been waiting to tell you right-wingers to do that.
