Where would they go?

I recalled many of us talking about running to other countries to seek refuge when Reagan or Bush was elected. Canada is the nearest and perhaps best choice.

For the RWers, their authoritarian trait and dictatorial character is such that they would rather overthrow the Gov and take back the country, such as Trump's revolution (can you imagine him carrying a musket and run, losing his toupee?), and subjugate the electorates who vote for the wrong person under their rule.

Now we heard a few (far fewer) RWs less violent talking the same about moving to another country, and I would be glad to donate to a fund for their one-way tickets. The question is, which countries would be best for them do you think? Certainly not socialist Canada, or EU, nor would they want to live in a country full of illegal immigrants like Mexico (tongue-in-cheek). Russia comes to mind, but where else do DUers recommend to them?

2. Somalia sounds about right. No government = no taxes = no bothersome regulations.

4. Nowhere

They are so screwed up that it would be tough for them to go anywhere. You can eliminate: Canada, Mexico, Central America, South America, Western Eurupe, Australia, Japan, etc....If they were true to their hatred beliefs then these countries would work well for them since these are the most oppressive:


Among those topping the list of the world’s worst human rights abusers are Burma, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Libya, North Korea, and Sudan

11. Except with themselves... I heard on radio

 

some talk show hosts (I'm very ignorant of who they are) recommended them to move to somewhere near the people like them. This means red districts become redder and red states become redder. This is good actually, as they would leave behind bluer states and districts. I'm sure CA, NY, MA and other blue states wouldn't miss them.
