Love her or leave her?

Seems some of the folks who threatened to leave the US after a second Bush win are actually trying to do so.

The article says it takes about 18 months to make it happen. First of all, after 18 months Bush's term will already be 3/8s over with. Secondly, wouldn't it be more effective to spend the same amount of time serving the country you claim to love? Run for something. Recruit a candidate. Attend meetings. Guide the discussion. Be vocal about the things you care about. Write letters. Etc.

Lamenting and running away never accomplishes anything. Does it?
