For Those Who Want an Escape Route...

 

I almost never discuss anything political on this blog, but this item was too good to pass up!
 
It seems like every presidential election year, for the past few elections anyway, there are people who promise to leave the country if So-and-So is elected president. (Lord only knows how many follow through with that promise, if any.) More often than not, their new country of choice is Canada.
 
Well, there's a new dating website called Maple Match -- which hasn't launched yet -- that wants to make it easier for Americans running from the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency to hook up with a significant other from Canada!
 

Playing off of Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America great again," Maple Match's slogan is "Make dating great again." Maple Match CEO Joe Goldman advertises that the site will "[make] it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency.” And yes, he says he's serious.
 
Whether you support Trump's bid for the presidency or not, you've gotta admit, this is priceless.
 
It'll also probably be all over the internet by the time this post sees the light of day, but... Oh, well.
 
Thanks for your time.

  2. hahaha hey, cashing in on fear and that idiot Trump isn't so bad I guess. Imagine the scams though through that. We have a site started as a joke about people moving to Cape Breton if Trump is elected, actually made the news and everything. People just think they go sell everything and move, pffft could takes years to officially be able to live here. Most are just full of hot air anyway.

    1. That's true. It's just an easy thing to say. Nobody ever holds you to it.

  3. I've been looking online at houses in Cape Breton. The nothingness there seems quite appealing. It's pretty, too.

    Love,

    2. Well, if you're really dedicated to the idea of moving there, it's possible.

  5. Hah! Well that's one way to get out of a country. Hopefully the ones saying they'd leave if that nincompoop makes it to the White House will vote to ensure that he doesn't!

    1. I do think it's a novel "escape route," as I said in my title. Find a boyfriend or girlfriend who's already there.

  6. This is amusing, but I've been to Canada and it has some beautiful countryside.

    1. I agree. I think the reason people usually say they'll escape to Canada is that there'd be less of a culture shock than if they moved to Europe, Asia, etc.
