My Get The Fuck Out Of Dodge Words

When Trump was first elected, I had a bit of a freak-out. And then I watched a show with some woman that fled Communism or a Dictatorship or something and she helped me.  She said, write down - and share with your loved one - what warning signs would actual fear for the Country and yoru place in it. Then, if it happens, you have a not-too-emitional reason for being serious.

So I did this with Ed and we were okay.  Looking at it now, it is cute. I didn't have "destroy the Constitution" on it! But that election one still is in the running.

So, in reality, these are the triggers I see that would make me want to get the fuck out of Dodge.

1. Right to Marriage is overturned via Supreme Court
2. Serious talk of "postponing the next election" occurs and / or legislation is introduced (my guess is this would occur - IF it occurs - due to a terrorist attack and we should "all come together).

These are general warning signs and hitting a majority of these would tend to have me thinking of leaving:

1. Right to discriminate laws are passed and upheld by the Supreme Court
2. Any registry of Muslims is started up and advertised as a positive
3. Newspapers are successfully shut down for negative press coverage

There you go. That is my list of triggers per last night's discussion.

I feel better for getting these down.
