Presidential candidate Donald Trump has been stressing me out since he announced his candidacy in the summer of 2015. And now that he has shown success in the polls, I am deeply worried about the future of the United States. I simply will not stand to live in a country ruled by that lying, offensive bigot. So if he wins the election in November, I am packing my bags and moving far away, where Donald Trump cannot reach me. I will be starting a new life in Alaska.
It will be difficult to leave my friends and family behind, but I have to do what is best for myself. I cannot support Trump as President, and by moving, I am making an important protest. Besides, Alaska is a place I’ve always wanted to visit. It’s a large, beautiful area, with diverse and magnificent scenery. I can’t be touched by a fearmongering demagogue while I’m miles and miles away, admiring scenic mountains and watching whales. Alaska will be a serene and much needed escape from the broken American political system.
Many threaten that they will move to Canada when a bad president takes office. But to me, that’s not enough. Canada is still a neighbor of United States, and being that close it’s like, I might as well be living in the U.S.! I want to get far away where Trump can’t touch me. That’s why I have to go to Alaska and get as far away as I can.
Sure, moving across a continent because I disagree with our President may seem like an irrational decision, but I must stick to my principles. Every day Trump says something so horrible that it only makes me feel more confident that I want to leave this crumbling country. I won’t want to be an American anymore! That’s why I must go to Alaska.
When it comes down to it, I just want to feel free and happy in a beautiful land that isn’t run by Donald Trump. If the United States cannot offer me that, I know exactly where to find it. The only silver living of Trump’s win is that at least I will have another stamp in my passport! Alaska, here I come!
