Good news, fellow Canadians!
That's right, climate-change denying, anti marriage equality, anti-choice, anti-healthcare reform, state-church entangling "Under God" Pledge lovin', gun control mocking (in the wake of near-daily school shootings), for profit charter school promoting (and public school slamming) Tea Party candidate has done Canada a favour and checked out completely. What a relief!
To quote a Globe and Mail editorial from January, before the process was completed:
No offense taken, sir. Your fellow Canadians are unflinchingly polite. We sincerely apologize for inconveniencing you with our citizenship. And we don’t hold grudges – why, not even against someone willing to shut down Washington in an attempt to kill Barack Obama’s plan to make U.S. health care more affordable and fair (i.e. Canadian).Now he can run for the American 2016 Presidential Election and he's just wacky enough to win the Republican nomination. Which means another nail biter like that last one with Romney. The stakes are high... for the planet.
Listen, if you want to forfeit your right to a Canadian passport, and distance yourself from this land of socialized medicine, gay marriage and gun control, we understand. But, future former citizen, what’s the hold up? As one immigration lawyer said: “Unless there’s a security issue that hasn’t been disclosed, unless there’s a mental health issue that hasn’t been disclosed, there’s no reason for anything other than a lickety-split process to occur.”
Oh and his daddy helpfully suggested putting atheists and secular humanists "into camps".
Correction 2014-06-11 : It turns out the 'camps' but was a bit of satire. Newslo is satire. I've been duped! See my comment below and press the "Show Facts" button on the site for the truth. Cruz Senior did have a lot to say about atheists though. Check out the Young Turks here.
Now, if we can only get Justin Bieber to...
