A FACEBOOK DIALOG: It’s time again to consider leaving the United States.

This is a good time to consider leaving the United States.

Jonathon Golub

Hyperbolic? Consider: The executive and legislative branches of the federal government (and most state governments) are now completely aligned to support a Trump-lead authoritarian kleptocracy.  The Judiciary (including the justice department, under the executive) have been the only meaningful resistance.  Trump will now get away with deposing of anyone in the justice department who dares his authority. He has fired the three leaders in the Justice department who have investigated him (Comey, Yates, and Bharara).

Thanks to the senate GOP blocking Obama’s appointments, Trump will also begin to stack scores of open federal Judge appointments with cronies (as he has with the stolen Supreme Court seat).

Standing between Trump and this plan? Mitch McConnell.

It’s time again to consider leaving the United States.

Veronica Muskheli Indeed! My one-way ticket to Georgia is beginning to look good.
Eric Grandy But where to?
Jonathan Golob No good answer–particularly for those most at risk.
Jonathan Golob I’ve been reading a bit on the Dutch Resistance in WW2. There are heartbreaking stories of German Jews who were precient enough to leave Germany early in the Nazi era–but then selected the Netherlands as a reasoanble choice (liberal, relatively friendly to Jews, similar language, job opportunities). They, of course, were sent to the camps and mostly killed off after Germany occuppied Holland.
Jonah Spangenthal-Lee MAYBE ALL THOSE GOOGLE BILLIONAIRE FREEDOM ISLANDS WE MADE FUN OF WEREN’T SUCH A BAD IDEA AFTER ALL!
Monique Costalas We talked about this last night. I just started a new job though and we would take a huge penalty selling our house 😞. We have at least 1 year before we can leave. Ugh.
Sean Wise I brought this up a few months ago, and it’s seeming​ like a better idea every day. Costa Rica looks nice.
Allen Huang don’t come to taiwan the squeetoes will feast
Elena K-raf Hate to have to say this, but as a Jewish American, I have another reason to add to the list, which is – Jews always get blamed first. And Trumpsters are already laying the groundwork for this by trying to blame everything that has ever happened on Soros.
Stephanie Purdy Ito I have been saying this since the election, and people thought/think I am crazy. But we got our kids passports this summer partly because of this potentiality.
