I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here.

But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so filled with hate that they will agree with opinions that if the were in their right minds they would never express as their own. It’s absolutely unbelievable. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone…..then I saw this and I think that it’s pretty close to describing how I feel.

I’m not starting a fight, but it is something to think about. This may open up a ton of outraged comments by some. Many who will argue how “wrong” this post is.
Spot on, no idea what has happened to today's Democratic Party and how it became so infected with radials

Is this supposed to be honest debate from you? You won't answer a simple question, WHY???

What's honest about the editorial but its whining? We have always counted every PERSON in the US for a census... This is not a new concept except for those who are uneducated... The rest of the drivel is just as pathetic...

then post line by line the "HONEST" Liberal facts on those issues? Counting every individual for a census is not the problem, but it is in counting people for the AMERICAN CENSUS. Illegals aren't Americans

I was trying to think of a country a conservative could move to.

The only one I could think of in 2020 is Bolsanero's Brazil. He's very conservative. Brazil has a higher GDP than Russia.

Brush up on your Portuguese.

I was trying to save you the embarrassment of posting exactly what the editorial is complaining about but I guess you don't mind...

• Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many legal Americans are in America.

This is just ignorance of how EVERY census has been conducted..

• Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

More hysteria... you guys have had YEARS to prove this assertion and have failed MISERABLY...

• It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

More ignorance of what Joe Biden did

• Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

Oh, now we want raise the voting age? How about an upper limit as well... Say 65 years old, I mean if your using our socialist medicare, should you really have a voice?

• People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

More hysteria... When there is an actual reparations bill that has even the slightest chance of being more than just troll fodder, let me know...

• Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous.

On this I agree, there is no reason to harass people at restaurants. If they refuse to wear a mask, don't harass or even discuss. Issue one trespass warning then have them removed from PRIVATE PROPERTY

• People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

I have mixed feeling on this but in general it would provide a huge economic boost..

• Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

WTF?

• Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

Gang-bangers aren't immigrating... good lord...

• $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

The wall is a huge waste of money.. No healthcare is "free" but we can certainly implement ways to cover more people for less money.

• If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

Simple minded nonsense..

• People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

Rolling my eyes... Don't worry, we aren't going to force you to have a sex change... You can still be the big strong man that wears Walmart boots...

• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

LMAO... Collapsing?

• Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

Not even sure what this whining is about...

• Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.

This just seems like an old rocker on the front porch kind of phrase...

• And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

Hypocrisy? That's rich...

Iran. It's laws come from scripture, liberalism is persecuted, homosexuality is illegal, women are kept in traditional roles, it's like the place where good conservatives go when they die.

No, I want to live in a country where our healthcare system generated a 2.9% death to infection rate for the COVID 19 infections not those European utopia countries that have UHC. Seems like healthcare to you is best paid for by someone else. When you do you don't get 2.8% death to infection rates

Nope:

US census website said:
As mandated by the U.S. Constitution, our nation gets just one chance each decade to count its population. The U.S. census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and takes place every 10 years.
Nowhere in there does it mention about the people counted being "Americans".

I've been feeling the same way if Trump wins, but I at least have options in terms of countries that are more center-left than America is and good places to live. Not sure where Trumpers feel they are going to retreat to.

The hate in politics today should suprise no one. You have a President and a Senate that lost the popular vote but who have been governing exclusively for a radical 30ish% of the country, and they've been condescending, hateful, arrogant, and corrupt as all heck while doing it, during a time when people are literally dying by the thousands and millions are losing their jobs. If you don't expect that to generate serious animosity between factions, you are delusional.

They are turning the USA into 1937 Nazi Germany. The Democratic Party's manifesto and tactics are straight of of Mein Kampf and the super rich are acting as Joseph Goebbels Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany since they own all of television, the newspapers and the Internet.

Yes, it truly is sad how the radical ideology has infected so many people who refuse to research history to see what that ideology has generated. I call it liberal arrogance as this group of liberal/progressives/socialists believe they can do what all the previous groups of liberal socialists have been unable to do, create the liberal utopia that doesn't exist in the world. Have you noticed that the same radicals are in every forum, spouting the same liberal bs and running when challenged with official data. Data doesn't matter, rioting doesn't matter, destruction of property doesn't matter, what matters is diverting from results and promoting politics of personal destruction, hatred, chaos, class envy. There has never been a more radical anti U.S. candidate than Kamala Harris and there never has been a 78 year old 47+ year career public servant on the ticket together trying to destroy the foundation upon which this country was built. You will notice that the left doesn't promote Biden's agenda only attacks and tries to destroy Trump

IMHO, many people will be leaving the United States.

But such a mass exodus will NOT happen for at least another fifty years.

By then, the population profile will have changed so dramatically that many people will find it impossible to find any safe place to work and live in this country.
