    Slinking away isn't terribly accurate. We can, instead, look at it in a bit more representative light.

    5 years ago my business generated 90% of its revenue from domestic sources (largely AB/SK, and a bit in BC), and 10% from International sources (mainly US). Today, on much lower revenues those numbers have reversed with 75% coming from the US, 25% from western Canada.

    In that time I have had to lay off roughy 35% of my staff. If it were not for work out of the US I would have laid them all off and closed my doors. Expanding into the US allows me to feed my AB operation. That keeps my remaining staff employed here and allows me to grow revenues (largely US driven) back to, and beyond, where I was 5 years ago. Yes, those new jobs are US based, and I will soon run operations from there. But it will at least allow me to keep operations alive in AB.

    And by doing that, I maintain income and a means by which I can directly support/contribute funding to a separatist movement. Losing my business and income allows me to do none of that. Such an outcome would be a defeat for me personally, and I have no intention of letting that happen.

    AB has the potential to do very well and as a businessman I will continue to hedge my bets and try to keep a foothold there. However AB doing well is true under 1 of 2 conditions only: 1) It exists as its own country and not part of Canada, or alternatively, 2) it exists under a fundamentally restructured confederation that sees provinces hold subatantially more power than the federal government in all areas. My preference is #1 as it is a clean cut and works the best for AB.

    The question of looking at your family tree for citizenship possibilities. I know for UK, it only goes back to grandparents level. So no point walking the ladder up too far.

    The queens cowboys police Alberta and they'll be enforcing the Liberal gun grabs 150% on orders straight from RCMP GHQ.
    Expect no quarter or mercy from the "High River cops" ... they've already shown their "colours" many times.

    Warren will be seen as someone who is at least somewhat intelligent, not likely to intentionally destroy the country, and who will listen to her advisors. People will take a chance on her rather than on a second term of Trump.

    Even if he survives to run a second term, Trump is toast.

    I say that as someone who was overjoyed to see him win, and until the last few months thought he would win again.

    It doesn't matter who wins the nomination for the dems, every eligible Democrats voter is going to get out and vote. Can you say the same about the Republicans?

    Getting a lot of the "hate Trump" posts on Canadian social media/forums.
    Those will be many of the same lefty-liberal drones who'll be marching to the polls and voting Liberal next week.

    Lots of pseudo-conservatives (aka "conniberals") on Canadian gun forums.
    They like conservative flavoured chest thumping and BS but actually hate people who actually do conservative things and practice true conservatism.
    Think about it ... isn't this is a logical result of 50 years of liberal-lefty media/school brainwashing?
