    I'm not predicting Trump is going to win.

    I'm just asking, in case he does, what do you see yourself doing?

    Celebrate?
    Cry?
    Move to another country?
    Encourage civil war?
    Nothing? Just go on about your life with no changes?
    Something else?

    Whatever I feel like. *shrug* I gave up on caring some time in 2019.

    I'd probably stop visiting the US completely.

    I used to go over all the time: multi-day trips to Michigan & Ohio, mainly, but lots of shorter trips to Tigers games and concerts, too.

    After Trump got in, I cut back everything except short trips for meetings in Michigan for my volunteer stuff.

    If he gets in again, I'm probably washing my hands of the country for a long, long time.

    I chose: Just go on about your life with no changes?

    I will admit I will take some satisfaction in seeing those sneering loud mouth liberals screaming. The sensible center gives them a smack back.

    The Democrats are pretty far right of a "sensible center."

    I have occasional fantasies of hunkering down in Stratford by extending our annual visit by 51 weeks.

    The left side of that party is not centered in my scale. And don’t get me wrong, I know Trump is personally buffoonish.

    ... and his supporters are fascistic. Why are you calling them a "sensible center" when they're neither?

    I think liberals using ridiculous terms like 'fascistic' is exactly why I will take some satisfaction in seeing them smacked if Trump wins.

    Two things wrong here.
    1. No Trump supporter is “sensible”.
    2. No Trump supporter is “center”.
    These truths are self-evident.

    As for what I’ll do? Mostly go on with life, except I’ll be donating and advocating for more centrist and sensible politicians and policies, even more than I do now. Possibly going so far as running for some local office....but that last option is extremely unlikely.

    What is a sensible center? Just asking.

    Left socialism, right capitalism. A sensible center would be?

    Fixed.

    Sensible Centrists are capitalists with social(istic) safety nets.

    After I feel like it's safe to do so (covid vulnerable in the house) I'll probably get a lot more involved in local politics, local protests, join a couple new volunteer groups, and give a lot more disappointed looks at people.

    I already decided to leave the country. The goal is this being the last presidential election I cast a ballot in.

    Isn't this what Democrats propose? I suppose this is more @9-10ths_Penguin

    I've seen charts which place US Democrat quite a bit over to the right of central.

    What would I do if Trump wins?

    Wonder how the polling could have failed.
