45. as your northern neighbor I am so alarmed and saddened by what is being done to your nation.

my friends and I and other Canadians see and listen everyday to what is happening your way. All my friends love the Obama/Clinton/Carter/Kennedy/Lyndon eras. Not all perfect but definitely there was a humane majority government during those administrations.
I am an avid reader and lover of history. I like reading DU. I learn so much.

I try to let my American relatives know about the health care we, in Canada, have. They are aware but astoundingly, as they are in blue states, love Trump, even now are they are ready to die for him. they are very concerned about the NJ Orthodox Jewish communities that have parties and other events with a lot animosity. Yet,they ignore the spring break gatherings.

So to me, the Republicans who love trump are like him, racist and ill informed You can not change them. It is heart breaking .
Canadian health care insurance keeps us sane and more peace of mind - there are no bankruptcies, no denials, excellent doctors , specialist , nurses. We can't understand why anyone would not want good health insurance, equally to all.

Everyone up here I know is isolating. Going out only when needed I have my balconies, my friends their yards, big and small. I can predict there will be a lot gardens and BBQs happening this Spring and Summer. This will be my 2020 vacation/holiday in Canada.

I watch MSNBC mostly along with my Canadian stations. So I keep informed.
Thank you Democratic Underground, I love you

The Canadian magazine, Maclean's has a great article about a Canadian snowbird heading north .this past week.
I went his same route often in my visits. to Florida.
My favorite Florida beach is Treasure Island with wonderful sunsets.

I can picture and feel everything the author wrote.

I sure do hope we all can get through this and it ends when the time is right to let us out.

PS; I think Gov. Cuomo is great . NY is lucky they have him as governor.
