We just returned from two weeks in Costa Rica. We were looking at property. Frankly, should things in the US continue to irretrievably decline at their current rate - which will be assured under Hillary Clinton - we will probably leave. We have a corrupt government seemingly unaffected by which party is in power. We have our institutions that are failing us in dramatic fashion (education, government agencies for example) with the possibility of corrective action nearly non-existent. We have a people who are most likely no longer “center right”, but more likely “center left” and trending farther left. This election will tell the story. In a very real sense, we are on the verge of throwing in the towel.
Speaking of throwing in the towel - I hope Republicans don’t throw in the towel again this November. I hope they show up at the polls in record numbers despite the likely prospect of having a very flawed candidate. We can sit here and speculate all day long about how bad or how good a president Trump might be, but there is no room for doubt about the disastrous extension of our failed policies over the last 8 years associated with Hillary Clinton’s election.
We wish you and yours well.
