Several friends have said that if Trump wins in 2024, they will leave the country. They just can’t take the thought of living in a country run by a dictator. They talk about Canada, Australia, Europe, etc. I don’t blame them.
But when they ask me where I would go, I tell them I have no Plan B. I’d rather be like Xenophon, the Greek general who defeated an overwhelming Persian army by lining his troops up against a cliff.
When his lieutenants questioned the move, stating that it would limit their mobility, Xenophon pointed out that their position clarified to both sides that we either fight and win or…
The Greeks won.
The reality is, though, that even if you escape, it will only postpone the inevitable. If we lose democracy in America, it will not long survive in the rest of the world.
So, it’s time to fight. Pick a candidate you like; volunteer your time; give what money you can; knock doors; make phone calls; organize; whatever suits you.
