    I hope not. Canada is held in high esteem by many Americans. I just wonder if you are prepared for five or ten million people to line up on your southern border and ask for asylum.

    We shall see, many Americans said that in 2016 and the 'exodus' barely moved the needle for Canada in terms of actual US citizens coming up. Just an influx of scared immigrants already originally from south America or the Caribbean . But if a 2nd American civil war fires up then Canada won't be too adverse to accepting Washington, Oregon, and California into confederation

    It's at that point I have no problem telling a stranger that they are diluted beyond all hope and they making themselves look foolish even parroting such fantasy.

    Most folks probably couldn't afford to move to Canada even if they wanted to. I don't see this happening in any kind of huge numbers. I see a civil war before that ever happens.

    Here's a lil article I wrote , im sure you kids will enjoy: "Historians of the future, pan-frying sowbugs over their campfires, will recollect in wonder and nausea the election of 2020 and the attempted controlled demolition of the USA by the Woke Rebellion and its incongruous avatar, Joe Biden, the Holy Ghost of Grift and Gaslight. All the forces of empire were arrayed in his support, as behind some sacred effigy of an obscure saint in a church processional, and yet all the voting public saw was a pitiful figure ranting at an audience of cars, an old dog barking pointlessly in a parking lot in the gathering darkness" https://kunstler.com/cluster****-nat...ful-reckoning/

    A civil war in the United States would be utter nonsense. It would pit family member against family member and there would be no discernible dividing line. Remember there are 5 million republicans in California. There is no way to section off the US or divide it into democrats and republicans. The idea is absurd.

    There will be unrest. There will be riots and looting and mass "protests", but no civil war. This President has made it a mission to polarize both sides to the extreme since he came into office. He has been sounding his dog whistle relentlessly and using division and hate to shore up his base. If you don't like the protests and the riots and the looting don't forget that he is the one who exacerbated this situation. This is the America Trump has made. The fanatics on both sides of the partisan divide have grown as vocal and strong as they have because of Trump, not in spite of him. This hate and animosity and 'otherness' is what his base thrives on. Trump appeals to emotions not facts or common sense.

    These emotions will be out in full force over the coming days and weeks, especially if Trump loses the election.

    So by all means, prepare for ugliness. Avoid large centers. Keep your head down. Wait this shit out. No sense getting caught in the crossfire.

    Let's hope for a large margin of victory so that there will be no honest grounds for dispute.

    Let's hope we get through this mess quickly.

    No matter which side you're rooting for, you best be wearing your lucky underwear today.

    Seriously though, what a crazy time it is for the "United" States of America. Can anyone actually remember the last time they had to barricade the White House in fear of what will happen from election results? It's insane how much an election can divide a Nation. People can say what they want about Trudeau, one way or the other, but we are very lucky to live in Canada and just has to watch this insanity from the outside looking in.

    I have lots of friends and family living in the US, and I hope they all make out alright. I do have genuine concern for their well-being in the coming days/weeks.

    Can you think of a time where the Whitehouse put up walls around it's property twice in under 6months? That's even scarier than during an election.
