Yes.

However, I do not know many (i.e., zero) people who moved because of "an annoying or stupid policy". Tax havens are a known problem.

I'm not sure that's true. I'm pretty sure I've heard of some in the UK.
Though this is of course people from absolute shit holes rather than first world countries that went insane.
I'd imagine if things did get very dark In a country then that would open up though.

Yeah the extent of my escape would be to Maryland or something.

But they will have to drive me out pretty aggressively.

If Baltimore is your plan B then Texas must be worse off than I imagined :D

I'm in the US. The same US that has trans people as their top boogeyman tied with illegal immigrants. The same US that has one political party actively trying, and often succeeding, in passing laws restricting and banning people like me from existing.

If federal laws are passed that refuse to allow me access to estrogen, I'm as good as dead already as I no longer produce reproductive hormones of my own. I once had to go without for a month due to needle shortages during the pandemic and that was before the changeover. It nearly killed me then. I can't imagine what it would do to me now.  :(

If I were to immigrate somewhere, I'd go to Canada since I have a job in Toronto.  I have no plans to immigrate, and, in fact, have been trying to avoid doing that for the last two years.   ;)

If it were a flee the country type scenario, it would be quickest for me to head to Fort Pierce, charter a boat and head to the Bahamas.
In Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace—and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock

The Bahamas?

The idea any of you would need an escape plan is fake and dumb.

What if the Hamas controlled dems take over? :ph34r:

Yeah? Well what happens if I wait too long and Baltimore closes its borders?

We do know that relocation services have been doing a booming business in France catering to business elites looking for a bolthole if the Melenchon bloc gets into government.

Not all of us believe that the empower American Nazis to save Israel plan will work as smoothly as you do.
