Flash fiction (a hundred words or fewer) #8: The World’s Splendor

Several of my friends have vowed to move to Canada if Trump wins in November.  These same friends had vowed to move there if Dubya won reelection in 2004 (or should I say “election,” considering the Supreme-Court-aided coup four years earlier—gotta retain my lefty bona fides).  I tend to know wealthy progressives who enjoy living comfortable lives too much to Fight the Power, but in this economy, everyone needs a little financial security, plus government harassment can bankrupt you via legal bills, et cetera.  Plus activism can eat into the time you spend enjoying the world’s splendor, right?  Right?
