In light of the close presidential poll numbers I have suddenly come to realize that I need a plan of action should the election end in a way I can’t stomach. Part fear of what will happen to the country should Trump win, and part fear of being arrested for my anti-Trump posts under his new regime, I will have to take my leave.
Where to go? Canadians are preparing for this potentially catastrophic event (a Trump win) by collecting bricks in order to build their own wall to keep the expected influx of Americans out. As such, unless I move in the next three days Canada will not be an option.
I could hitch a ride with all the deportees heading to Mexico before Trump’s wall is erected— but I prefer a more temperate climate…and beans give me gas. Australia is too far and the dialect is hard for me to replicate, so I’d always be “the American”.
I am looking into life in Bangladesh, where I could earn 30 cents an hour working for Trump— but I’d be afraid of my paycheck bouncing.
Russia would likely welcome Americans with open arms since Putin and Trump are co-conspirators— but I’d be afraid Sara Palin would creep on me from her house.
So what is left? I do like northern Europe, with a quasi socialist way of life I would never be denied healthcare there. I love the U.K., and I speak British English adequately when speaking to another imposter, but at the risk of tooting my own horn, I have perfected fake French which would work until I become fluent in real French…and baguettes, croissants, good wine—sold. ______________________________
