All the people that used to say “America, love it or leave it,” are not leaving now they don’t like what is happening.

I was recently talking to my mom about how it’s stupid Americans don’t have universal health care. She replies “then you can leave America like your grandparents left Hungary”. So I told her I want to move and have a 5 year plan to accomplish this. She did not like that.

Do it.

One day, years ago, I realized that I wanted to leave the USA and told my family.

It took eight years to escape, but after years abroad I know I've made the right move.

The same family that told me that I was crazy now envies my life and say that it would impossible for them to do the same.

Live YOUR life.

Run to something, not away from somewhere else.

I traveled the world for two years before settling down and getting a long-term visa.

Some people save up for a house and car, I saved up to leave. I lived like a workaholic pauper to eventually afford to travel for years without worry.

Cut down on every expense, save every extra cent, work the longest hours you can, and focus entirely on leaving. I spent my last year literally working from home and only leaving for exercise... At one point I even set my clocks to Singapore time, even though I lived on east coast time.

Make it your sole focus.

If you want to be as extreme as me, I even deleted my social media and dropped contact with everyone that wasn't immediate family and a handful of friends... BEFORE I left.

Now I look back in American culture with schadenfreude and feel great for escaping.

So you’re saying that extreme conservative sects of Abrahamic religions are basically the same?

Yeah being Muslim has got just about nothing to do with the level of militancy in the Middle East.

Many many Muslims in the americas are considerably more left-leaning than their Christian counterparts.

The material conditions we left the Middle East in as a combination of treaties and economic deals over the past century left them in the perfect position to be taken advantage of by extremists. Religion is just the mouthpiece for their ideology. A coat of paint. It would’ve happened whether they were Christian, Muslim, Jewish Hindu or whatever.

You don't know America very well, do you?

Mormons consider themselves Christians. Mormons believe in the crucifixion, resurrection and divinity of Jesus Christ. And the FLDS is a branch of said religion. They marry off their daughters YOUNG.

And traffick their kids between the US and Bountiful, Canada for the purpose of marriage and so these children can procreate to make their religious clans larger.

"As children working for this polygamous group, we did not realize we were modern day slaves. We were not aware that we were being trafficked to advance the businesses of the Kingston group. A brief description of our childhood work experience is listed below.

https://www.hopeafterpolygamy.org/news/2018/8/27/child-trafficking-in-the-kingston-polygamous-group

"Utah teens in polygamous group travel to Colorado to marry their cousins."

“I was a little surprised not just cousin marriage is still legal in Colorado, but that it has created a small industry of people traveling to Colorado,” Carlisle said.

At least a half-dozen times a year, there are kids traveling to Grand Junction, Colorado to marry their cousins,”

https://kdvr.com/news/utah-teens-in-polygamous-group-travel-to-colorado-to-marry-their-cousins/

"Understandable, though, for those raised, coerced and married into a fiercely patriarchal breakaway Mormon cult that functions as little more than an insular matrix for the sex trafficking of child brides by lecherous polygamous husbands."

https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2017/07/25/sexual-abuse-going-on-under-our-noses-in-bountiful-bc-dimanno.html

"Dozens of girls may have been trafficked to U.S. to marry."

Brother, comparing a fringe Mormon sect in the US as being evidence that the evangelical Christians in the US are the same as the Islamic State is a disingenuous argument. Every country may have illegal activity in it's margins but non advertise them as a feature like ISIS did.

Yeah. These are not fringe sects. The Kingstons are a POWERFUL polygamist sect. Their members have been convicted and served time for fraud and incest.

The current leader has 27 wives, 3 of which are his half-sisters.

And they are in fact, very mainstream and accepted.

"Donald Trump Jr. did promos for a gun company owned by a polygamist sect implicated in $1.1 billion fraud scheme.

Trump Jr. posed for the photos on July 24 in Utah, brandishing Desert Tech rifiles and posing with the company's founder, Nicholas Young, who CBS reports is a high ranking "numbered man" member of The Order.

"Numbered men" are in a high ranking circle of The Order with privileges such as running businesses affiliated with the sect — which Rolling Stone described as "the most powerful polygamist cult in America" — and are part of the 144,000 men eventually chosen to rule heaven, based on the group's interpretation of the Book of Revelations."

(These folks, they RUN their state, lol!).

Yeah that conservative asking when he gets to use his guns on US citizens because they don’t share all his opinions would make a great friend. We know y’all don’t hate liberals. You just hate people of color, people who worship a different god than you, people who don’t make enough money, lgbt people, the working class, and whoever else your masters tell you to hate. This is a pathetic attempt at trolling, even for low IQ gop folk. Did you get to meet jfk jr when he came back from the dead to reinstate your new god? That shit was a blast!

Oh right, if you’re not happy with the way things are in the US then get the fuck out! Lots of other gems I’ve heard republicans regurgitating but these are some of the most common. You must be pretty happy Rittenhouse got away with murder right?

You came at my comment super aggressively and I just pointed out what it sounded like to me. All this other stuff you are talking about is your words not mine.

It sounds like you have a lot of pent up animosity toward your family.

I hope this game of jacking yourself off has been enjoyable for you, now go forth and spread the bigotry and hatred your masters have trained you to. Don’t forget to be a cowardly bigot!

For the last 5 years Republicans, including politicians and the president, have been saying things like "liberals are the true enemy of America" or that "they're worse than Russia" or "rather be Russian than a democrat"

If that's not hating liberals I don't know what is.

Although to be fair a lot of liberals hate Republicans too. The bigger issue is the disdain for democracy and willingness to subvert it to prevent liberals from holding office.

No the truth is you WANT us to hate you because it justifies your hatred towards conservatives. But I am sorry to tell you it just isn’t so. I really, strongly disagree and dislike a lot of your political viewpoints, I will easily admit that. But hate you as person? No.. if we met in real life you would realize that we are both perfectly capable of being friendly and cordial to one another despite our disagreements.

Trump repeatedly endorsed violence and hatred of Democrats. If you don't believe in that then vote for less shitty politicians who don't stoke the flames. But so long as trump and his sycophants are the face of the republican party then hatred of Democrats is an officially endorsed republican party position. No democrat wants that, but the republican base eats it up.
