Trump Presidency: Forget Canada, Go to Russia!


Several celebrities and liberal politicians have threatened to move to Canada if Donald Trump becomes president, but Vladimir Putin would like American political refugees to consider moving to Russia instead.

Putin is offering 2.5 acres and citizenship to any Americans fleeing a Donald Trump presidency who would be willing to live in Russia’s remote Far East for at least his first term.

Like the United States 19th century western land rush, the Russian Homestead Act was designed to lure hardy settlers and political asylum seekers to help settle the largely undeveloped region.

    I feel like half the stuff you cover can be responded to with “unless they’re gay.” x)

    Interesting find, but I am not so sure that the political climate would be any better. I guess in the wilderness, politics would definitely take a back seat to survival though. Since they had a meteor strike in 2013, the next time would probably be beyond my lifetime. The climate may be a little cool for me also (-47F winters to 64F summers). I am a little too old for the challenge though, so I would have to decline the offer.

    *snort* Half of everything can be responded to that way. I forget where I saw it yesterday, but I read an article about a Russian diplomat in Sweden, trying to reassure people that “no, no, gay people are totally welcome and safe in Russia, Putin didn’t mean it, just don’t kiss in the street.”

    … 2.5 acres …

    By which I think they mean 2.471 acres, or 1 hectare. More accurate than usual for modern reporting.

    If self-sufficiency in Siberia came that easily, population charts there would resemble Ohio’s.
