I want to leave this country anyway, far-right nationalists and an insane, narcissistic clown as president are making a society that already had few redeeming qualities far-worse. Not sure where Iíd go, maybe get an electrical engineering degree and start designing solar systems for a developing country? Not only is renewable energy what must pragmatically done to save the planet, it has virtually unlimited growth potential. Strong inclination to go from a job that involved dumping tons of CO2 into the atmosphere to one that helps solve our global problems. If I want to scratch the aviation itch I can always fly an ultralight or sailplane on my days off.

Then leave.... And please take Alec Baldwin, Meryl Streep, and all the other snowflakes with you..... I hear Europe is quite the Utopia

Biggest motivation not to leave would be people like you would like it to much.

Love the irony of these two statements being back to back.

Good luck in your search.

There's a reason why refugees and immigrants come to the US, rather than the other way around.

There are countries significantly more messed up then the US. There are also countries significantly less.

Well, 18 months has gone by since this post, care to re-evaluate your countryís commander and chief without resorting to childish name calling?

Your countryís democracy is broken. And it all happened on Trumps watch. Or should I say the party of Lincoln and Reaganís watch.

Sad.

You must be really bored and bitter to revive this... Canít blame the original intent of the Republican Party... Our current predicament may be based on partisan politics, but this is in no way what the presidents you mentioned intended. As for democracy and the current state of the US, yes, itís quite broken. May whatever country you choose to speak from be in a better place! Way to revive a dead thread with troll-ish motives...

Well, one whole month has gone by since you joined the forum. Care to re-evaluate APCís rule against political posts?

Other than my education going to waste, I am simply bored with this job.
Same here man same here
