This whole thread is idiotic its based on a ridiclious premise of a few loudmouth cry babies not getting their way. The US is the best shape its been for a decade. Time to kick the deep state socialists out and take our country back.


America is on its way of being great again.

I doubt if we will see more than a trickle - it's not so simple to move anyway.
W and Obama sent us down the road to totalitarian police state and Hillary would have finished the job. Obama is the most radical totalitarian president we ve ever had. Its ironic the people who worship him can't see this.

Yes, America is still keeping most of it's people. But the signs are everywhere, and we now have politicians saying totalitarianism is on the way.

So, with that said, where will all these millions go when the country completely unravels? Perhaps Australia or Argentina?

These would be people who work and are not looking to move, but they are going to be forced to go soon.
Try living in Venezuela. People complain too much, America isn't going to sink like the titanic. America is still of the best places to be

They are a bunch of whiners. When things didn't go my way in the past, I kept my nose to the grindstone and continued to work. I sure didn't attend any protests or burn any cars. William Buckley Jr. was certainly right:

With an outlook like THAT, I don't really care where they (you) go, just as long as it's SOON.

Personally I think Venezuela would be a good fit for "snowflake" Americans that want to get away from Trump, since it will actually be a learning experience for them to see what a truly dysfunctional government looks like along with experiencing fun things like food shortages, corruption, massive inflation, and insanely high kidnapping/crime rates. Anyways unless you have a unique skill set or massive amounts of cash on hand, no developed country would be willing to let Americans or other foreign nationals move there easily (plus there are language barriers as well which would prevent many Americans from taking employment positions overseas). The only possible exception would be South Korea or Taiwan for English teachers and even in those countries you would have to have a college degree along with an ESOL certificate to be able to obtain those jobs which excludes a large segment of the population.

Yeah, more people should read Wikileaks and follow Edward Snowden, since the information they disclosed meant that our previous presidents have long since led us down the road to losing our civil liberties.

I am another one of those Americans who has settled down in Asia with a wife and kids.

Most likely, I'll stay in Asia...but Australia looks very attractive to me as well.

You have to remember who exactly would be these people that are leaving. Social and economic conservatives are not going to leave now they have a Republican in office after 8 years of Obama.

Anyone who is going to leave will probably be young, liberal, an urbanite, and definitely a left-wing Democrat. For such people Canada, even more so now with Trudeau, is a wet dream.

socialist thinking is and was about as prominent in goverment circles in america as martian thinking

fully agree that america is in great shape right now but it was in great shape for the last three years under obama , whats changed under trump is a complete disregard for the world beyond americas borders , trump is a brute who believes america absolutely has the right to use americas ( total ) dominance to its full capacity

Maybe, but what influence does that have on an American, living in America, that would make him moving to another country?
