do they continue to build their coastal havens, or do they look to other places where there are real civil liberties (you know, like voting), where there's equal opportunity, where the general welfare really is promoted, where actual lives of innocent foreign citizens are deemed more important than the fears of domestic citizenry, where there's governance by law, logic and civil rights, not by paranoia and religion?
Not predicting a mass exodus as a result of conscience or anything, but it's notable that key jobs are already leaving and that it's natural for key workers to follow. And at least this morning, it's easier to think about leaving
but all they ever do (besides drive the economy) is drone on about civil liberties, equal opportunity, and four freedoms. And who needs that
