I’m seriously considering leaving the country when I hit my 50s due to health care costs. But it doesn’t matter who gets elected, that isn’t going to change any. Our health care system would be brutal and overpriced with Hillary as president too.
Trump winning really reduced my faith in humanity. Not because ‘my side lost’, I wouldn’t have felt that way if McCain or Romney won. Its just that Trump winning shows a huge % of the country are ok with the worst aspects humanity has to offer.
But I don’t think that’ll affect my long term plans. It’ll just make me more cynical.
I may buy an AR-15 though. Not because I’ll need it, but I finally understand what those gun fanatics were worried about for all those years. The election of Trump seems to have pushed a lot on the left into buying guns because they realize our democracy is tenuous.
