All aboard for Camp Breton!

The website proclaims, "Don't wait for Donald Trump to be elected to find somewhere else to live," (see link below)...obviously paying attention to the deluge of anti-Trump rhetoric traveling back and forth through areas of the US media, a group of Canadian townspeople believe their island off Nova Scotia, called Camp Breton, is the perfect place for disgruntled folk, including (reportedly) 25% of the federal work force, numerous celebrities and political figures, as well as the usual left-wing provocateurs.

It sounds like Utopia for sure. No, I'm serious. Many don't take these people seriously when they make these types of threats. However, I understand and don't discount their feelings at all. As a matter of fact, I made a similar declaration back in '08. I said if we as a nation elected to go far left (and we did), I would stop working and no longer contribute, above the minimum to at least remain legal...and most certainly well above anything necessary to avoid any problems with the IRS. So, I "retired" shortly after the 2009 inauguration and haven't worked a day since (many would say I didn't work too many days PRIOR to '09).

So, I get it...however, please follow through on your threats. Camp Breton is encouraging everyone to move now and not wait, so that "come election day, you can just hop on a bus and start your new life in Nova Scotia, where women can get abortions, Muslim people can roam freely, and the only walls are the ones holding up the roofs on our extremely affordable houses." I'm not sure our Hollywood elite would be okay with substandard housing and I don't think a bus uses quite the same volume of fossil fuels as do their private jets, but perhaps the townspeople can see to building an airport large enough to accommodate the celebrities' jumbo jets (and jumbo egos).

Now, of course, many will say they'll leave and then, come 2017...nothing will happen. Perhaps Camp Breton has the right idea. There could be non-refundable deposits for travel and relocation costs to the location of their doesn't have to be Canada. For instance, Jon Stewart could join Edward Snowden in the Soviet Union...Al Sharpton could take his road show to the African continent...and Miley Cyrus, well, Miley could make a reservation for one of Richard Branson's Virgin Group (yeah, really) trips to outer space for the duration.

So, there you have it...another reason, possibly the best reason, to actually vote for Trump. No doubt, he's a powder keg...and seriously, we could be "taking our lives in our hands," by entrusting the nation's highest office to a reality show huckster and proverbial blowhard. But if it rids the country of these people, most of whom have lately taken the word divisiveness to a whole new level, well, I'm willing to take one for the team.
