    On his show earlier this month, Limbaugh threatened to leave the country. "I’ll just tell you this, if this passes and it’s five years from now and all that stuff gets implemented — I am leaving the country. I’ll go to Costa Rica," he said.

    The web site is soliciting donations $1 at a time, and has promised to use the money for a first class ticket from Limbaugh's home airport of West Palm Beach, Fla., to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.
