I talk about leaving in some kind of despair language, a kind of flail, but I wouldn't. Well, we'll see. Maybe Mexico will have to put up a fence...
As it is, I couldn't leave for practical reasons.
In the not so far away past, I could easily envision living in other places, but whenever I've thought of that, not for political reasons, I've always thought of it as my being multiply connected, not dropping the US. In my more far away past, when I could have conceivably made that kind of jump, I had ties here that precluded really considering that.
My federal government is endlessly irritating and sometimes.. unconscionable. I'm still engaged. If McCain/Palin win, I'll be in despond's slough, but I'll have company.
