Fred Gion: A French cowboy? Oui!
I dream of life in Red State America
Since the re-election of President Bush, I've been reading on American blogs and newspaper Web sites that lots of you, particularly in the Blue States, are talking about leaving your country for more culturally hospitable nations, like Canada, or even my native France.
Well, I can be of assistance. I can even help one of you would-be expatriates relocate here to Paris. My apartment is on the market, because I don't like it here anymore! I want to immigrate to Red State America.
I mean it. I've just filled an entry form for the annual diversity visa lottery administered by the U.S. government. I've done it for the fifth time, and now the odds are on my side.
I'm not in a rush. I'm not running from anything. I've got a comfortable life here. It's just that someday, I want to marry and have a family, and I don't want to raise my kids in France, or in Europe. The hope of the future, as I see it, is in America.

He is smart to get out while the getting is good.
Puts a new twist on "Trading Spaces".
welcome, you would become an "American" of french heritage.with that mindset
No problem, and if the diversity lottery doesn't pan out for him again, he can go to Mexico and cross the Rio Grande like millions of other illegals. With his attitude, I'm sure he'll do fine in Texas.
a canuck says...see boys ...don't be discouraged by the msm spew about how everyone hates the usa's guts...it ain't true...most think you guys are the cats ass and more nb your troops are awesome...you got to love how they have been flushing islamic/fascist vermin down the euphrates this week....god is good...eh...bcboy
But don't encourage those Leftist morons to move to France or Canada. We're still clinging to the flimsy hope that the French and the Canadians will come to their senses and give the morons the same message the Americans gave them on election day, and there are far too many morons in Canada and France already.
Instead, encourage them to migrate to places more suitable to their mental functioning. Cuba or North Korea, for example.
A novel idea for them is Devil's Island, off the coast of South America. They can probably get it cheap. There are plenty of coconuts and bananas to eat; they won't have to work. And there's lots of available housing. Exit transportation is generally restricted to coconut-float, but what does that matter? They might be able to arrange a sushi and cappuccino air-drop every now and then, and they can protest to their hearts' content.
We must be related!! What took you so long to make plans to come home?
great article - forwarded to my family ... God bless this frenchman!! Actually we need more cowboys in Europe! That would improve that continent greatly!!
He wouldn't want his children raised as Muslims.
Real estate prices in Texas are going to soar if this idea catches on--with all the influx from Europe and Blue-USA.
Young Msr. Gion should be on guard against Texas girls--I've heard they can put the hurt on you. I've also heard that there are more baptists than people in Texas--which is a good thing with all them Texan girls around!
Look out. He's a spy.
Sounds like he'd love to live in Paris. Really, are there any French people there? Does anyone know?
