I moved back to Canada on November 1st, 2020, and I can't tell you how glad I am,

now that American politics

are foreign politics

I try not to gloat because a) that's not helpful, and b) the American empire still affects every living being on Earth (especially with Canada being right next door)

but damn

it's nice, sorry

@ashfurrow enjoy that. contributing to the gdp/economic power of a non-US government probably decreases the influence of US political meddling by that much. At least you're not funding the US military any more.

@travisfw it’s honestly quite a relief to know that, at last, my tax dollars are funding *canadian* imperialism instead 😌

@ashfurrow I've thought about going and paying taxes in New Zealand…

uspol 

@travisfw @ashfurrow same. I would've left 10 years ago if I could've. but peeps need me here.

uspol 

@ashfurrow oh heck, you have to do what's right for you. I'm glad you're happier where you've moved to. enjoy it! it's good! 💜

uspol 

@ashfurrow Yep, we're very much Austria to their 193x Germany, except I guess Trump is not Canadian.

uspol 

@bremner yeaaaah I suppose things could be worse for sure 😅

@ashfurrow In all of 2020, never have I regretted moving to the US more than 6 Jan. '21 ... my current red line to rent a U-Haul and flee the country is a successful assassination attempt against the President- and Vice President-Elect (I think it's unlikely, but there's enough officers in the Capitol Hill police force for a city of 1M+, and they utterly failed at their one job today, so it'll be a dark sort of interesting to see if the Secret Service are equally rotten with fash...)
