I'm not moving just because someone became president. That's stupid.

Anyone who had the kind of money necessary to just 'get up and move' have so much money that they don't want to leave because they are going to make ungodly amounts of money from the tax cuts headed their way.

Similarly to what Quarlo said, most people who could afford to just up and move to Canada probably make enough money that they wouldn't be affected all that much by changes made regardless of who became president.

Nevermind that Canada is a far less attractive country economically and geographically (it's f'king cold , bruh).
Did anyone really think those celebrities with huge multi-million-dollar houses in nice warm states near beaches would actually move to "The Greath White North"?

Those most affected, be it beneficially or badly, are the poor and the lower middle-class. Those people generally can't just up and move to another country, and generally don't meet the requirements that would facilitate immigration ( such as special skills, large investments, etc ).

I actually feel bad for people who genuinely wanted to leave but can't. I may disagree with their points of view but it certainly would be nice if you could simply move to a place where laws and ideals lined up with your own preferences.

Incidentally, I wish I could move to the USA, regardless of politics. Beautiful big country, very strong economy (compared to others), and nice warm weather. I also happen to very much dislike how extremely far to the left Canada's current leader leans.

I know one person who tried to move, but Canada kicked her out and she is now persona non grata in Canada and not allowed in the country(because she didn't do the paperwork correctly and got law enforcement really pissed off when she tried to take a job from a Canadian citizen). Ironically she moved 100% because she didn't like Trump's stance on immigration.

I know someone who moved to Australia.
I'm gonna start the process of moving to the motherland.

I thought Canada was very nice looking in those postcards. Are you sure you aren't bored? In any case...

Come to Virginia. We got history! Lots and lots of history! (I am a bit of a history tourist buff.)

Probably the same amount as the people that said they'd move if Obama won. IE, not many

Some people left, most did not.


I really questions your friends story... not saying your liying but perphaps they were. Getting a visa to live in another country isnt something you jump through hoops to do lightly. If nothing else the sheer cost would deter most people. If your friends really did leave because of the new president(though I suspect thats their BS excuse) I am not sure its a loss. I like to think the citizens of the US are bright enough to endure dissenting views. Throwing a temper tantrum because you didn't get your way is just silly.

EDIT: Also if your moving to Australia hopefully its not because of your stance on immigration. Australia is far more harsh towards illegal immigrants then the US is by far. The US does put illegal immigrants on remote islands and wish them the best of luck until we find them somewhere else to go.

If your moving because you didn't get your political way... not sure what else to call that other then a temper tantrum no?
