I have quietly been planting the seeds of expatriation in the minds of my Canadian friends.

It's not for everyone, but... don't make the mistake of thinking things will get better in the short term.

Especially if you have family.
My dearest friend in Canada understands the looming threat in Canada. But he lives in a rural town, has deep roots, an extensive network that includes immediate and extended family.

He will dig down and ride it out.

He is under no illusion, but that's the right path for him.
Expatriation may be the right path for you, but there are negative aspects as well.

It's easy to romanticize moving to a new country.

In truth, you are choosing between two difficult options.
Americans, in my view, should relocate to an open state and start fortifying.

Things are going to get ugly but you'll be surrounded by the right people at least.
