Moving to Canada Sounds Pretty Good, Eh? [PHIL-OSOPHY]
I'm so pumped! Something really positive came out of the Trump-Biden free-for-all the other night.
Following the war of words, Massachusetts placed No. 1 on Google Trends for the "how to apply for Canadian citizenship" search. The eureka moment was like an epiphany.
Realizing the nightmare ahead for our country if Joe Biden wins the election, a whole bunch of peeps started thinking about spending their future somewhere else, like the land of Dudley Do-Right, where they'd swap their Dunkin' for Tim Horton's.
The Commonwealth surpassed states like New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Michigan. Aside from Joe Biden's insults, do you think the writing on the wall became apparent to these searchers when Biden told the president, "Will you shut up, man?"
A lot of folks, and not just from Massachusetts, will be thinking seriously about leaving the country if Biden gets in. America would take a hard left turn under Joe Biden. Just take a look at his 47-year history as a U.S. Senator and vice president to see where this country will end up if he were elected president.
I can't blame the people for searching out how to apply for Canadian citizenship. But they have to realize that it's not going to be easy and it will take some modifications to speak like a Canadian. Take, for instance, "Eh." It's their most popular saying and it's a bugaboo to place correctly while conversing. Here's a hint: use "eh" as if you were agreeing with someone in question context, like, "Oh, you moved up here too because of Joe Biden, eh?"
