I shared this image on facebook a few days back:

Here's what I wrote to accompany it:
Back during the Bush days, when things were looking particularly grim, we would occasionally hear some prominent liberal, like Alec Baldwin or some such, saying he would leave the country for good if W was elected to a second term, or if some other in-your-face right-wing victory came to pass.

But these people have always had it all wrong. Leaving is a bad idea. If you're an American, and you believe in America, you don't run away when things are at their worst. You stay and fight to make the country what it's supposed to be, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Can't do that in Canada or where ever. You can only do that here.

And we've got a lot of work to do.
