    Since Trump will soon be elected president, can anyone recommend a nice quiet country to move to? I may have to get by on Google Translator for the first year so.

    Canada but they are now ruining their country the same way the US started to do back in 1965 with the Hart-Celler Act.
    Championed by the traitor Ted Kennedy, may he rot in hell. .

    I hear good things about Northern Europe.

    I would also stay away from any countries that Trump might not like.

    That does sound nice. Lots of rain though:

    Average rainfall varies considerably, from 1,350 mm (53.1 in) in the north and west to over 4,500 mm (177.2 in) in the extreme south.

    It depends on what work you want to do (if any) and how much you care about the weather. There are by the way plenty of countries where English is not the main language but you will still be fine knowing only English.

    Canada is probably a decent choice and not so likely to get bombed by Trump (unless some terrorists' family members happen to be living there).

    This seems sooo lovely. It's just that with the Zika virus and all of their deadly, disease-spreading insects, I'd constantly be on edge. In Central America, there's even an insect called the "assassin bug". Thanks, but I may have to pass on this one.

    Canada's a good choice. I just feel like it's too close to a country that's despised all over the world. When war inevitably breaks out under Trump, I think Canada may get dragged in. I can also imagine scores of Americans rushing the Canadian border in the event of a war, making for hilarious irony when they're denied entry.

    No thanks. I've lived in upstate New York almost all my life; not even Trump is going to make me go some place colder.

    To tell you the truth, Trump would be an embarrassing President but he'd probably do less damage than Cruz or Rubio.

    I think I could handle the rain. It's tropical diseases that make me queasy.

    Canada or Scandinavia would be nice except for the cold weather. Mexico is a hellhole thanks to US drug policy, and the Middle East is a hellhole thanks to US foreign policy.

    Maybe Australia. Nice country. Election days are holidays -- vote or risk a small fine.

    I have some in laws that retired to Italy. They love it, and never quit talking up the free health care.

    It's hard to move to Aus/NZ unless you are rich or have a desired professional skill. You'll need references, passing a on-line live interview, etc just to be able to apply. Your partner if you have one will need the same as you.

    One of my senior breakfast group has been raving about Belize for a decade. I keep telling him, Go, or you'll end up dying here.

    The trouble with small nations is that they tend to be easy targets for either domestic or foreign takeover.

    Must be getting pretty confident, or paranoid about Trump's electoral chances.
