What’s the Conservative Equivalent of ‘Moving to Canada’?

When Democrats lose elections, a small but audible ratio of them invariably announce their intention to move to Canada, that liberal paradise where healthcare magically costs nothing, everybody is nice to each other, and maple syrup flows freely (although the price of cheese may lead to sticker shock).
But when Republicans lose, you almost never hear them grumbling in the same way. Are conservatives simply less prone to melodrama? Or would they just consider it treasonous to party and country to abandon the United States, even for redder pastures?

What do you think, Tumblr: Where should conservatives threaten to move?
