Unhappy potential voters took to Twitter to warn their fellow countrymen that they would be shutting up shop and moving to the wonderful land of Oz should Obama win the election.
"If Obama wins im moving to Australia
and becoming a kangaroo whisperer," tweeted @GriffinWilson1.
Another user, @CarsonCagle wrote: "If Obama wins I'm moving to Australia and going to Hillsong University
@Chuck_Addis wrote that if Obama won he would be making his family move to Australia. "Not becoming a communist," he wrote. "End of story."
Aussie Twitter users took to Twitter to warn the potential ex-pats that Australia was a country that had embraced both gun control and socialised medicine after BuzzFeed compiled a list of 37 Americans who were threatening to immigrate Down Under.
"Anyone saying they're moving to Australia if Obama wins can stay right where they are," tweeted @FaintofMatts. "We are already at maximum f***wit occupancy
"If yr moving to Australia if Obama wins: 1. We have public healthcare, schools etc -"socialism" to you. 2. We have a woman leader 3. No guns," tweeted another user @lootlou
However, as yet nobody on Twitter has advised the pre-emptively disgruntled Americans that they could help decide the election outcome by actually voting.

"These are the things to keep in mind. These are not just academic exercises. We're not analyzing the media on Mars or in the eighteenth century or something like that. We're dealing with real human beings who are suffering and dying and being tortured and starving because of policies that we are involved in, we as citizens of democratic societies are directly involved in and are responsible for, and what the media are doing is ensuring that we do not act on our responsibilities, and that the interests of power are served, not the needs of the suffering people, and not even the needs of the American people who would be horrified if they realized the blood that's dripping from their hands because of the way they are allowing themselves to be deluded and manipulated by the system."
Jesus didn’t say yes to everyone. I mean Jesus knew that there was a place for everything and it is not necessarily everyone’s place to come to Australia
