    In fact, I feel frustrated because I honestly believe he's just in a bubble. Frankly it happens to every president to some degree. My frustration stems from not feeling like i (or someone like me) could reach him and shake some sense into him.


    truth is, i think this is it.

    As far as not being able to leave, sure you can. You can sell pretzels at the market in any country on earth. If you have a car you can make it to peru! Seriously, try to save SOMETHING, anything you can. $2000-$3000 goes a long way in some countries on this planet and you really may need to skiddaddle once we have a complete religio-fascist sham of a govt. I mean when you have actually sitting legislators saying that global warming is not an issue because God told Noah he wouldn't destroy the earth again after the flood....I mean, it is seriously time to see things for what they are. We have a SCOTUS that is part of the corruption; an official corporate buy-in/bribery system for elected officials seeking office (YAY Citizens United c/o SCOTUS); we have legislators who aren't listening to anyone unless they've paid for access and votes; elections that are not the same in every state or county and have been rated poorly compared to other western nations (did you like the last "election" in Afghanistan? Get used to it. It's coming to America when the GOP takes over again); We will have a permanent slave class (finally, again) who are so desperate for work, corporations will be able to use and exploit us just like they did in the early industrial age; no one will have health care, insurance or security unless they are of a "certain class", just like in many third world nations where people starve and live desperate lives while the rulers live opulently (we're already half way there, mama). And since elections and the courts will be a "formality" the only system of change available for those who remain here will be revolution. Hopefully people will be able to organize without being punished - but I wouldn't count on it. Today's GOP is as close to fascist totalitarians as I believe we've ever had in this country. Markos was NOT exaggerating when he titled his book American Taliban.

    This is serious.

    Don't write off getting out unless you really really think you can't.

    Save $50 a month if you can. $100. Sell some pretzels or cookies at the flea market. Something. Anything.

    I'm getting out. Wish I could take others with me. But I cannot stay here.

    Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I will tell you what you believe. h/t MeteorBlades
