Of course I'm serious. We RWNJ "retards" are very serious people.
You actually believe that illegal aliens are stealing votes. You are a joke.

Well, if I'm a joke I hope that I'm at least a funny joke!

The joke about political correctness was awful, it made my laughing muscles sag or whatever the opposite of laughing is while shaking my head slightly. Come back with better material

Re: When is it time to GTFO?

Can Russians not leave the country? Because that’s where I see the end state of Athena US if things go south from here.

Now if you’re Muslim and they start openly talking about camps...

I’m out of the country for a year or so and actively looking for somewhere to settle to ride out the Trump train. I feel guilty about leaving though.

American prison is like a hotel compared to most other countries. Guy told me jail in Thailand was a chain link cage on a concrete slab with a ditch running up the middle.

After 60+ years here in the US, never been arrested or jailed. Easy game.

Surely some of the Northern European countries and Canada have certain advantages over the US.

Move there. More beer for me.

*No idea what Athena was supposed to be here.

Obv it's just "the" that got auto-corrected (probably because of an accidental "a" pressed first).

This is such an imbecilic and insulting comment.

Probably the sign of a bad person, or at minimum spectacularly ignorant.

Ever notice that the liberals who want to flee the U.S. virtually always end up in lilly-white places like Canada and Western Europe, and almost never in Africa or South America?

Most of the places where liberals seek refuge are almost invariably much less ethnically and racially diverse than the U.S.

I'd be interested in those numbers. Can you provide a citation, please.

Re: When is it time to GTFO?

I'm looking at somewhere in Latin America. At least from everything I've seen so far in Mexico, it's wonderful down here and super cheap.

I massively prefer the vast majority of Mexicans I've met to about 40% of Americans at this point. Also there aren't too many Trumpfan expats - at least once you get more than a day's drive away. Well Baja is kind of a minefield. But the mainland is almost all sane expats.

I'm also interested in Guatemala potentially.

Only key is I need to be at some altitude because the sun and heat don't agree with me so much.

Spoiler:

Although I may be able to get work as a lighthouse.

UV exposure is greater at higher altitudes, just a heads-up.

Re: When is it time to GTFO?

Lol at you all and your "I'll move to a 3rd world hellhole" virtue-signaling. lagtight is pretty sure we're all just as racist against brown people who speak a funny language as he is. At least he's honest with himself about his racism, and therefore can gleefully sneer at us from a position of superiority.

I'll start with a quote from our good friend Zikzak (from #67 ITT):

Quote:
OK, but if things get that bad in the US then I'm just not complying with US law while living outside of the country. It would have to be a scenario where the US is forcing foreign nations to enact punitive US laws against resident citizens of that foreign country, but somehow also be willing to drop the matter if the person in question goes through some formality of renouncing US citizenship. I'm sure I can imagine some set of contrived circumstances where that happens, but it seems really implausible.

Another scenario would be if the other country in question stops recognizing dual citizenship and says you have to choose: renounce your foreign nationality or leave. Some countries do this now, but none of the ones where US expats are likely to want to live. If we live in a world where Canada or New Zealand or wherever says "renounce or GTFO" then things have already gotten really really really bad and that's going to seem trivial in comparison.
In this thread, only four posters listed places that they wanted to flee to.

1. Mexico/Vietnam

2. Canada/Germany/Austria/New Zealand/UK/"Rest of western European countries"/Korea/Japan

3. Canada

4. European Union

Pretty meaningless, but hey, I promised to do it, so there you go, there you have it, there it is.

1. Please quote me where I said that I thought that anyone in this thread was racist?

I want to be on the record here: I have no reason to think that any of the liberals in this thread are racists! CITE OR BAN!

2. You just accused me of being a racist. Please provide a quote that indicates than I am a racist. CITE OR BAN!

3. I love foreign languages, and don't think that they are "funny." Please quote me as saying otherwise. CITE OR BAN!

4. Please quote where I "sneered" at anyone? CITE OR BAN!

5. I do not consider myself superior to anyone in this thread.

Have a blessed day!

we're looking at it from a cost-of-living/culturally-benign standpoint

physical race has 0% to do with it

I thought this thread was about escaping Trumpism, not diversity.

I thought that was what this thread was about to, until some liberal on here inquired of an apparent conservative what his or her ethnicity/race was. Many liberals reduce everything to race, gender, ethnicity, and/or sexual identity.

I just found it amusing (okay, I admit that I'm easily amused ) that many of the folks who want to flee America are the biggest champions of racial and ethnic diversity, yet they usually want to go somewhere less ethnically and racially diverse than the U.S.

edit: Am I the only one around here with a sense of humor?
