Costa Rica Elections

Expat Democrats


This cartoon ran last week in The Costa Rica Star.

I get annoyed at people who claim they’ll leave the country if they don’t get their way. You hear a lot of celebrities make that promise. But, after they don’t get their way they don’t ever do us the favor of keeping their promise and leaving. They stay and continue to vent.

One of their favorite destinations to not go to is Costa Rica. Rush Limbaugh swore he’d move to Costa Rica if Obamacare passed. He’s still here. If Rush had moved to Costa Rica he would have discovered a nation that already has a national health plan. Oops.

Liberals and Democrats aren’t any better. How many swore they’d move to Canada, France, the UK, or Costa Rica if Trump won. None of them left.

A lot of lefties believe Costa Rica is a liberal utopia in Central America. It’s a nation that takes climate change very seriously. However, it’s a very religious nation where abortion and same-sex marriage are illegal….for now.

An international court recently ruled that Costa Rica needs to allow same-sex marriage. Costa Ricans have responded to this by putting a candidate into their presidential runoff who is campaigning on the nation leaving the international court system and vowing to never recognize same-sex marriage.

So, liberals, if you want to be an expat in Costa Rica, keep in mind there’s a very strong religious conservative tilt in the nation despite the legal prostitution. That’s weird, right?

The Costa Rica Star discovered I am making videos of my cartoons. They’ve asked me to do the same for them. There is not a video for this cartoon, but there is one for the next. You can go to the Star’s YouTube channel and check it out.

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated. Want to help me continue to create cartoons and keep doing what I’m doing (pissing off conservatives)? Look to the right of this page and make a donation through PayPal. Every $40 donation will receive a signed print (please specify which print you want or I won’t mail one). All donations will receive my eternal gratitude
