But everyone thought that about George W Bush ...

Yes. And Trump would still be worse than Bush.

I'm more scared of Trump than anyone, even Cruz. As was the case with Bush, Cruz is part of the establishment and therefore has an interest in maintaining the status quo to a certain extent. Trump will destroy everything in pursuit of self gain and narcissism. Not that I care about America but the rest of the world will suffer the fallout.

Trump compared to Bush or Cruz is like comparing a fascist leader to an authoritarian conservative state.

As to the OP, you may consider moving abroad if Trump gets in, and I personally would recommend it, but also be aware that anti-American sentiment would also increase. You'll need a T-shirt saying something like "I didn't vote for Trump".

I find the threat which is quite dwindling more of Cruz more frightening. Because Cruz is still policy and mindset aligned to that 10% of the GOP party line that literally wants to disrupt the concept of government being effective except for for some reason, wanting to instill social policy & religious control.

So, this is like Fight Club, you're saying?

My worry is that the continued revival of fringe and hate groups will persist and get even stronger. The assholes in this country seem emboldened to come out of their holes with Trump spewing his drivel on the main stage.

Trump will either go too far or have a melt down if there continue to be protestors at his rallies.

Yeah I'm sort of half expecting him to accidentally cross the line when he's tripping out on an ego rush. It's not too far in his mind from saying that he could shoot someone and not lose support to saying that he's more popular than Jesus. Or that he would rather punch a protestor's baby rather than kiss it.

When did most Americans search for "how do I move to Canada?"

RE: I'm scared Trump will be president
I hate to spoil the delusions of so many people who think they're just going to up and move if Trump is elected, but most of the world is about as accepting of immigrants coming to take their jobs as the stereotyped American redneck. If you don't have a family relationship or an advanced degree that puts you in a position to fill a demand that can't be filled locally, you're pretty much shit out of luck.

And if you do happen to find an avenue through which to immigrate, chances are Trump's presidency would be almost over by the time your immigration application is approved. In regards to Canada, the one thing you have going for is if you decide to jump the gun and live here as a tourist off savings while you wait a few years for your residency or work permit, the Canadian dollar has been dropping like a rock relative to the U.S. dollar so you might be able to stretch it a little farther so long as you don't overindulge on increasingly expensive American imports.

And for the record, the recent runaways who joined the military, got deployment orders, then suddenly decided they were conscientious objectors and hopped the border into Canada are, after somewhat lengthy court battles, being sent back into the waiting arms of U.S. law enforcement where they are promptly arrested. It ain't Vietnam anymore. They don't hand out refugee status like candy.
