Some quotes from his FAQ:
Do you hate the United States of America?
No. Hate is a strong word reserved for people who have deeply rooted fears of something they haven't taken the time to understand. I, in fact, feel sad for the state of affairs in the United States. What the United States used to stand for is idealistic, youthful exuberance that the world had not seen prior. Americans, unfortunately, are consumed by the thought that their country is so unique that it's the only one with democratic values and freedom. There are others who share the same (or better) life style and freedoms. Canada is such a place.
I agree with his ideals and he is exactly right in saying how different the United States has become. Especially in this next quote...
...Letting a government do anything it wants with the tagline "what's best for the American people" is alienating the U.S. from the rest of the world. ...
Now I took that quote out of context, showing the ... to signify it. But that statement is 100% money! He nailed it. the rest of his comments aurrounding that statement were, IMHO, presumptuous of him to tell me what the rest of the world thinks. He does not know, nor do I.
What's the feedback been like?
I've received about 400 emails, 80% of them Canadians, 15% Americans, the rest outside of North America. Most, I'd say about 95%, have been positive. Canadians have found it funny and inspiring. Most Americans have at least found it funny, if not agreeing with most that I say. The rest, about 8 or 9 emails, have been rather disgruntled Americans and, oddly enough, one Canadian.
I found it unique, slightly funny, and very very well done! I think he reasoning is very much true as far as what this country has become. What I disagree with is how he chose to deal with it.
I choose to stay and fight for changes. He chose to run.
