If you can manage a team, sling some code, set a broken bone, just turn raw materials into food, build a house, wire it for electricity, drill for oil, run a nuclear plant, or mass produce a robot army to keep the damn snow off the solar panels, there are free people in the northern wastelands who could use your help.

Moved to Azores from LA almost exactly one year ago. It was hard AF and expensive and am currently broke af. But... farking freedom rocks man. Also, not having to worry about running out of food and water is a plus

When they discover it's still easier to talk about moving to Portland than talk about moving to Canada, and then they realize they have a life here.

Just sneak across the border and claim refugee status. Easier than the legal requirements for immigrating to Canada.

Don't move to Canada. Move to an empty red state (Wyoming, North Dakota, etc.) and flip it blue. Let's outvote these motherfarkers, and conquer their goddamn gilead states for ourselves.

Alternately, need 60 senators (not counting Synema and Manchin) to expand the court. Easiest path via moving people is probably: Alaska + Wyoming + North Carolina (large state but very close elections) + Kansas + Primary Synema out of office + Montana's R seat + beat Ron Johnson in Wisconsin. Alternately, you're looking at long shot states like North Dakota or Iowa.

And don't move out of close blue states like Virginia or Minnesota or Michigan to make it all happen; move out of Florida and Texas. IIRC, the Dem vote totals in those two states alone are enough to flip all the above Senate seats and then some, but let's face it: that would involve more people moving than 1. could, 2. care to, and 3. would be allowed to vote in their new state of residence once Reps are done modifiying voting laws.

It's not a bad idea over all, though, and it's been done successfully in Georgia and Colorado. Look at what it took to turn those states blue, pick a red state, and start doing it. It might take a decade, but we kinda have to be in it for the long haul at this point. It's not going to be pretty getting out of this mess.

If there were a strategic effort, funded by donors and volunteers, to help move 1% of California's and New York's Democratic population to targeted flippable red states, it absolutely could be done. Some people would need financial help to relocate, but this kind of strategic migration is literally the only way we can make game-changing changes in the current electoral and Congressional structure.

lets consider under the current "rules" you are looking at having to move mountains AND its going to take a generation or more to even try to undo the damage. and the hostile party is still scheming and they feel no need to adhere to the rules by which you are plotting to fix things

if i had a daughter it would be a tough call to put her through that given the means to relocate

People leave countries as their governments crumble.

That's happening now in Central America.  Bosnians came here in the 1990s.  South Vietnamese got out.  Millions of North Africans, Syrians, and others fled to Europe.  Afghans fled their collapse last year.  Einstein fled Germany.

If they can, people go to safety.  Very few want to live in a nation hostile to them.

Consider Costa Rica.  Lovely place, and they have a 'digital nomad' program for remote workers.   Lots of expat communities exist, and as long as you're not an ass and you're willing to spend some money locally beyond just your rent (you'll likely have enough extra from reduced living expenses to hire a maid and gardener... it's a good idea), and you are willing to pick up some Spanish, you'll be fine.

I'm still a US citizen. I can still vote absentee. Even when we had a Trumper ambassador (who I'm convinced based on his Instagram posts was somehow in on j6) the consulate on the mainland and the local consul here were promoting absentee voting. Maybe they thought the olds living in Algarve would vote R.

You jest, but that's pretty much everywhere sane.  That's what amuses me about all of the "Baby wants to emigrate" talk - the list of places everyone wants to go to is also the list of places that would honestly look at them and go "Can we not?  Sure, show up as a tourist on a schedule, but anything else means you had better make it worth my while or you can f*ck off."
