    Trump's latest....

    It seems that Trump has been outlining his plans to weaponize the FBI against his opponents and the US military against peaceful protestors. Very scary stuff - this is the start, or at least an attempt to start an authoritarian dictatorship regime.

    Astrid has already said myself and SO can go into hiding (over there) if necessary and I have places I can stay in Mexico. I am making no moves at the moment but given my utter distrust of this country I can see where a quick move may be necc depending on the election outcome. Gotta say I have never been this afraid of the United States in my life - but at least I have places to run to where I am welcome. Do you? Rob

    I am not a serious person.

    Snark all you want, IL. I am genuinely fearful at this point though becuause I
    work long hours these days I put a good face on it. What tipped me over some kind of realization here is that DJT himself referred to some who dislike him as vermin - yes, he did use that word. And so many Americans actually consider such as acceptable. What are any sane people doing here - if Trump indeed does win things are going to slide from there. I wish this all were not so ugly. Rob

    If you are truly fearful, Rob, then it *IS* a good thing FOR YOU to have the comfort of places lined up to which to flee, as we have heard so many times over the years from you. Decades, even. What about your mother, will she flee with you?

    I wonder what you think about some people who are legitimately feeling some new fear that hasn’t been there before, because they are Jews? I think it’s insane that “so many Americans actually consider “ Hamas and their puppets to be reasonable.
    I am not a serious person.

    The chilling suppression of free speech and other civil liberties in recent years has come from big government allied with big tech and big pharma, primarily Democrats with a few RINOs like Charlie Baker thrown in. Trump is just a buffoon and a sideshow.

    Trump is indeed a buffoon. And a bully. But just because his first coup attempt was as clownish and amateurish as the Beer Hall Putsch doesn't mean his second effort will be equally inept. And 40% of the voting population still love that asshole and will support him until the day he dies. Being convicted of the crimes he obviously committed will only add to his second coming of christ stature in their minds.

    I'm not terribly "afraid" at this point. I live in probably the most liberal and free county in one of the most liberal states, far far away from Washington D.C. Furthermore, I'm 20 miles off the US mainland, but a 10 minute row across the border to Canada from here :-). And even my liberal state still allows me to own firearms, speak freely, and worship as I please.

    Well. I keep ~1/2 of my assets overseas. I have a residence overseas, and a permanent residency visa in-progress which should be in my hands "shortly". I speak multiple languages, and have friends and family all over the world.

    But that's just common sense.

    So in effect you too are fearful and setting yourself up for a quick escape. It may be common sense but it is difficult to do what you are doing. Those who are looking away from trump’s antics are being foolish. I’m with Rob in being fearful! There are too many sheep….

    I imagine a disadvantage of an overseas residence is the loss of firearms freedoms. Or some might think so.

    It's more than 40% of the population - in recent polls including in battleground states Trump beats Biden.

    But Biden will not step aside and no one is endorsing Phillips. The Democrats are going to keep Biden until he drops dead they did with Feinstein. If they lose they have only themselves to blame.
