Exit or voice

A country bitterly polarised following a contentious election. Not America, but Ukraine.

Given that succession of the eastern part of Ukraine is a possibility, it would be refreshing to see whining US democrats follow the lead of some Ukranians, perhaps not by succeding, but by leaving the country or moving to a blue State.
It is also interesting to note the contrasting levels of political passion - in Ukranian, Yushchenko's supporters have been camping outside in freezing conditions for almost two weeks (webcam). In the US, Democrats can only manage to post lame messages on the web (see here).
Perhaps these self-important Democrats ought to look to the situation in Ukraine and see what real election fraud looks like, and realise how fortunate they are to live in America.
