Zedd's Not the Only One Thinking About Leaving the US if Trump Wins

As the possibility of Donald Trump becoming the Republican nominee for US President has become more and more likely, it's common to hear discussions about moving out of the United States if he actually wins the presidency.

Zedd tweeted his thoughts on the issue, indicating that he would move back to Germany if Trump takes the White House:

But after Super Tuesday, where Donald Trump won 7 of the 11 state primaries, these thoughts apparently became much more common. Google Trends tweeted the following chart, showing a historic spike in the search term "move to Canada".

Now of course there isn't any way to know for certain that all of these searches were motivated by fear of a Trump presidency, but it's hard to imagine anything else driving this trend.

Comedian Louis C.K. penned a lengthy letter to his fans, urging them to not vote for Trump, detailing all of the horrible things the "cunt billionaire liar" represents, and it adequately sums up what is so frightening about Trump.

Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all.

And I’m not advocating for Hillary or Bernie. I like them both but frankly I wish the next president was a conservative only because we had Obama for eight years and we need balance. And not because I particularly enjoy the conservative agenda. I just think the government should reflect the people. And we are about 40 percent conservative and 40 percent liberal. When I was growing up and when I was a younger man, liberals and conservatives were friends with differences. They weren’t enemies. And it always made sense that everyone gets a president they like for a while and then hates the president for a while. But it only works if the conservatives put up a good candidate. A good smart conservative to face the liberal candidate so they can have a good argument and the country can decide which way to go this time.

Trump is not that. He’s an insane bigot. He is dangerous.

He already said he would expand libel laws to sue anyone who “writes a negative hit piece” about him. He says “I would open up the libel laws so we can sue them and win lots of money. Not like now. These guys are totally protected.” He said that. He has promised to decimate the first amendment. (If you think he’s going to keep the second amendment intact you’re delusional.)

If you are a true conservative. Don’t vote for Trump. He is not one of you. He is one of him. Everything you have heard him say that you liked, if you look hard enough you will see that he one day said the exact opposite. He is playing you.

In fact, if you do vote for Trump, at least look at him very carefully first. You owe that to the rest of us. Know and understand who he is. Spend one hour on google and just read it all. I don’t mean listen to me or listen to liberals who put him down. Listen to your own people. Listen to John Mccain. Go look at what he just said about Trump...

And we reported yesterday that Trump has leveled threats at EDM artists. Anyone who loves music and art should be very wary of any politician who is such a clear enemy of free speech.

Are you considering moving out of the US if Trump gets elected? Let us know in the comments!
