    So what do we do? Anyone making preparations to leave? Protest? What are we supposed to do about this besides accept it and / or die.

    Give an American a three day weekend, sit back, and watch the threads roll in.

    Finally, an excuse to call dictatorships a forced meme.

    In order:

    —Looking for a way to leave. Renewed my passport, older son has his. Currently playing the “you think positive, I’ll be realistic” back and forth game with the husband regarding the state of the country.

    —Protest.

    —All that fails, die. Accepting an alt-right dictatorship is not going to happen.

    I can. I am a very attractive match, or so this matchmaking website that costs money tells me.

    I knew Jimmy Cliff's "I'd rather be a free man in my grave than living as a puppet or a slave" would make it to a US political outlook at some point.

    Have the agricultural easements led to lower fees on FarmersOnly, as well?

    Anyone in Europe want to marry a person who never leaves the house and just plays video games all day? I'm quite the catch.

    Go back to my Dad's motherland, Denmark. Or convince my Kid to marry a Kiwi and move to NZ.

    Civilian militia to protect yourselves against the big bad power of the state

    Ha. I thought of making a thread like this and then I decided that I should probably stop talking about politics online...starting NOW! For real this time!
