I was talking with an American friend of mine the other day when he said that he and his family is seriously considering moving to another country if a particular candidate wins the election (not stating which one both out of respect and because this is not a political candidate bashing thread).
He dislikes both candidates, but is particularily revolted by a particular one and feels that his family would be better off leaving. He's also fed up with a number of other issues within the states, but this one particular person in power would be the tipping point.
It made me wonder how many others feel this strongly about the current election and state of the USA. Have any of you thought of leaving?

I advise your friend to cool off. No better way to do that than to check out the requirements to migrate to other countries, not visit on a visa, but to permanently live there. The coast is clear in a lot of places if they refugees, but that hardly fits in this case. In any case, money and business concerns are what other countries look for in decent citizens. I'm sure your hot-headed friend will be unpleasantly surprised about the requirements that he will find.

I'm kind of ashamed of the candidates we have for president myself. I hope Europeans and Asians do not think I am like Trump or Clinton. I'm not going to move though, I will just go stand in the corner in shame.
