Got a few bucks to spare?

"Liberals of America, unite! Leave this horrid and wicked and
irredeemable backwater!

Why not create a workers' paradise off the shores of France? You can all speak French, allow Janet Jackson to show both her breasts, create a cradle-to-grave welfare state, drink Starbucks lattes, read The New York Times every day, scramble the satellite signal for Fox News, and worship your new leader, Michael Moore! [Heck], we'll throw in Harvard and the whole faculty! It's a gift. Here's an added incentive:

You will never have to take the war on terrorism to the terrorists; they will almost certainly bring it right to your doorstep. Now, there's the catch in all this. It turns out that a lot of the liberals can't afford the trip, or the entry fee into places like Canada. So here's my idea: a new project called the Export a Liberal Fund. From this pool we will donate $100 to every liberal who agrees to give up his U.S. citizenship and flee the country permanently. Warning #1: There's no coming back for health care when you get sick. Warning #2: There will be no amnesty program. These are one-way tickets. ... I, for one, stand ready and willing to do my patriotic part and contribute to the Export a Liberal Fund. I hope you will join me in this worthy charitable endeavor. Let's really go out and paint the country red!" --Stephen Moore
