I have lived happily in the US my entire 64 years. I love my country and all it stands for… or I should say stood for, but now it seems the lunatics are running the asylum.
For all of you that love Trump, and what he and his cronies are doing to this great nation of ours, I hope you are happy, but the rest of us now face a decision. Stick around and hope we can reverse what is happening, or seek out greener pastures? I have been fortunate to have traveled around the world and seen countries that, while not perfect, at least care about people outside of their borders. I’m not wealthy, but I have the resources necessary to go somewhere else if I want to.
I’m still a year away from retiring, so at that point I can decide to leave if I choose to, and if things continue on their current path I see no reason to stick around and see how it all plays out. Maybe things will change and we can back to who we were prior to the 2016 election, but I don’t think that’s likely to occur. I’m not a bigoted, anti-semitic, xenophobe, so how can I sit back and ignore what is happening?
It feels cowardly to think about leaving, but why stay someplace that you no longer believe in. Is anybody else having these feelings or is it just me?
