Seriously. It can't be that hard to move to Canada.
I'm very seriously disillusioned about this whole thing. I feel like our country has shown it's true colors. I would really like an exact count of how many still support this lunatic, come Hell or high water (and future generations may get more than they want of both if the Paris Accords are any indication) and who genuinely hates this cunt and want him outta here. I just have to believe there's more sane than insane. This is not the America I was ready to die for if need be when I joined the service. Although I STILL would if it came down to it. But it would not be for Trump or any campaign of ignorance and evil....my last thoughts would be my family and people like y'all. I'm a patriot. That's why I'm so sick. In my mind, I fought for an America that embraced diversity and tolerance. Obama gave me hope that we were growing closer and closer to such an ideal. I figured the bigotry and intolerance would eventually phase out more and more with each new generation. In short....I feel like a naive fool.
One of my best friends while I was active was a man named al-Rabadi. His parents were Iranian. But he was born here. He is an AMERICAN. End of story. He saluted the same flag I did. A patriot through and through. The thought of him possibly leaving the country to visit family and getting the third degree when trying to get back into the country....HIS country....that he fought for and put his life on the line for just the same as any corn fed white boy....well, that thought makes me want to just get fucking violent with someone. I've lost touch with him. But, to know that not just a true American citizen but a VETERAN could be held up trying to return home makes me as angry as anything I've ever felt. I hope he never endures such as that..Edited by Fraid uh noman - 6/4/17 at 8:11pm
