How to Leave a Bad Government When Your Guy Loses the Election
Whenever we get into the throes of a hotly contested election, people threaten to leave if their preferred candidate loses. Most don't ever leave, of course. But should they?
I'm not sure they should leave. Leaving is a drastic step and response. But I'm sure that most people should prepare to leave. Or make a plan to leave. And today I'll share with you the argument and the methods!

The most varied financial podcast available
I’ve listened to RPF for about 4 years now. Joshua is a financial jack of all trades (and master of many). From financial topics like asset allocation, tax strategy, insurance, entrepreneurship, FI/RE, etc. to others like building a gun arsenal, living in a car, homeschooling, marriage, and birth tourism, you will learn a lot! Be warned though, his conservative/libertarian political views do come through quite a bit. If you can come to terms with that you’ll be glad you subscribed.
Thank you for talking about Ross! I am not usually a very emotional person, but I had a lump in the back of my throat and tears in my eyes as you so accurately hit all my frustrations with the current system. I have listened to you for a while and you are obviously a free thinker. I think we, and those who pay attention, and look beyond the media propaganda narrative, are beyond frustrated right now. I did not support Trump in 2016, but I understand those who did, especially after observing the media and Trump’s actions over the past four years. No new wars and the media’s blatant inaccurate vilification of him the last four years is enough for me to support him. Thank you for everything. #iraqwar #injustice #mediaManipulation #sayNoTofear #freeRoss
