5 Best Countries to Escape America's Decline

Activist Post

Okay, you're upset with the direction America is headed and you've been thinking of moving to another country. Perhaps you feel exhaustively cynical about the political, economic, or social situation in the U.S. and think it is beyond repair. You wouldn't be alone. Many top economists and other trend forecasters are now openly predicting that a total economic, environmental, and social collapse may be imminent in America.

Americans, young professionals and baby boomers alike, are increasingly saying that their main desire for moving out of America is to seek "political asylum" of sorts.  In the past, this political discontent was typically drawn along party lines -- under Bush's 8 years the exodus mainly consisted of bitter Democrats, while as recently as March Rush Limbaugh declared, half-jokingly, that he'd move to Costa Rica if "Obamacare" became law.  However, these days, more Americans have grown cynical of the system itself and have given up on left-right politics.

Many believe that dropping out of the system as much as possible is the best form of protest. And now, because many people can telecommute through the Internet, it seems that living outside the U.S. is more do-able than ever. Furthermore, the lower cost of living in many other countries may actually increase the standard of living for some people.


Surely, America will rebound from its eventual collapse, much like Russia and Argentina have, but it might make for uncomfortable sacrifices in America during the next decade.  More Americans are looking to "ride out the storm" elsewhere, while others desire to become permanent nomads seeking foreign opportunity and adventure.

It should be noted that no country is perfect and you'll face challenges no matter where you go. You'll find that modernization and rampant consumerism is expanding into almost every corner of the world. Some view this as a good thing, as more American comforts can be found, while others view it as a cultural blight to foreign lands. Your expectations must be kept realistic in that you may not find paradise, but your expat adventure may ultimately lead to a more peaceful lifestyle.

The criteria for countries of safe haven include social stability, economic opportunity, freedom of self-expression, relative self-sufficiency, and an essential local community strength. These critical components are the foundation for living life with a greater sense of independence.

Here are our 5 best countries for Americans to escape the decline:

1.Uruguay, whose official motto is "libertad o muerte (liberty or death)," is located in South America, southwest of Brazil and east of Argentina. Uruguay borders on the Atlantic Ocean and has developed infrastructure, a stable democracy, European flair, and rich culture that draws many expats to her borders. Uruguay is a constitutional democracy with one of the most developed economies in South America, possessing a high GDP per capita. Between the years 2007 and 2009, Uruguay was the only country in the Americas which didn't technically experience a recession, and now has the lowest Income Inequality and highest Quality of Life in Latin America, second only to Canada in all the Americas.  Uruguay is rated as the least corrupt country in Latin America with its political and labour conditions being among the freest on the continent.  In 2010, Uruguay became the first nation in Latin America to test hemp cultivation, while no drugs are illegal for personal consumption.  Located entirely in the temperate zone, Uruguay provides an excellent climate for growing.

Housing costs are much lower than the United States, as well as health care and food. Some consumer products such as cars and electronics can cost more, as well as Internet connection fees. Americans can buy real estate and own businesses, and they have an automatic 90-day visa to explore Uruguay.  Americans only need to have a proof-of-income of $500/mth to apply for residency.

2. Costa Rica is a peaceful country in Central America, often referred to as the "Switzerland" of the Latin America due to its stable economy, political stability, and quality health care. Costa Rica, blessed with two beautiful coast lines (Pacific and Caribbean), is roughly the size of West Virginia and home to around 4 million people. The Central Valley's eternal springlike climate is said to be one of the best in the world allowing for a year-round growing season.  Costa Rica is consistently voted one of the "Happiest and Greenest" countries in the world with about 95% of its electric production coming from renewable sources.  AARP and others have ranked it one of the best foreign retirement locations, as it has all the same modern conveniences found in America and is only a 5-hour flight from New York.

Besides the price of real estate, which is comparable to the U.S., the cost of living is lower -- especially property taxes, health insurance, and fresh food. Americans have an automatic 90-day visa which can be renewed by leaving the country for 3 days before re-entering.  Non-residents can own real estate and businesses, but are not allowed to work without a work visa.  Residency requirements vary based on category.  Current information is available here.

3. New Zealand might be the most isolated fully developed nation in the world. It shares no borders, sits relatively distant from any other nation, has no real national enemies, has a safe democracy and a diverse landscape with many remote places to hide away within. Located in the South Pacific with beautiful beaches, sunshine, friendly people, and stunning vistas, it has two main islands and several smaller islands like Chatham Island and the Cook Islands. New Zealand ranks highly in international comparisons on many topics, including education, economic freedom, and lack of corruption.  New Zealand now ranks among the freest economies in the world with one of the least corrupt governments ranked #1 on the Global Peace Index in 2010 -- second year in a row.  Its cities also consistently rank among the world's most liveable.  The most commonly spoken language is English.

The cost of living is somewhat comparable to the United States.  Americans have an automatic 90-day visa to enter and explore the country.  Non-residents can apply for a 2-year work visa only in fields determined by immigration.

4. Iceland has a free market economy that has historically been one of the wealthiest and most developed nations in the world. In 2007, it was ranked as the most developed country in the world by the United Nations' Human Development Index, and the fourth most productive country per capita economy.  In 2008, Iceland's economy was devastated by the international bankers calling their foreign debt due.  However, because of pride and solidarity among the people, strong social services, a nearly self-reliant energy sector, and a manageable population (320,000), it is poised to recover once the foreign debt issues are settled. Iceland has passed legislation to establish the country as a "free speech haven" to protect journalists and their sources. This law is a huge deal as most Western countries seem to be heading toward regulating the Internet, and it has the potential to jump-start the Icelandic economy in terms of offering censorship-free servers and other services to journalists and internet businesses.  Iceland is also a peaceful country with no standing army.

Iceland will be working it's way back from financial collapse, while the U.S. still appears headed for the cliff.  Because of the shattered financial system, there are good opportunities to live on less income in Iceland now than during its peak, while all the signs seem poised for recovery. Residency has traditionally been difficult to get in Iceland and is usually done through vital employment needs, but the new push as a political safe-haven may open up the process a bit. Currently, American passports have an automatic 90-day visa to visit Iceland.

5. Argentina has bounced back from its financial collapse in 2002 when it defaulted on international debt causing massive inflation and high unemployment.  The people said "Nunca Mas," the government has since paid off its debt to the IMF, and Argentina now has one of the world's highest qualities of life.  Argentina is the second largest country in South America and the 8th largest in the world.  It is a fully-developed country with strong agricultural production as the second-largest exporter of corn in the world -- not to mention good wines and beef too.  The capital of Buenos Aires is known as the “Paris of Latin America” because it feels like a European city with rich architecture and numerous sidewalk cafes.  If the arts and ambiance with a low cost of living are your thing, then Argentina may be the best bang for your buck.

The cost of living is reportedly much lower than the United States for housing, food, travel, and health care.  Americans have an automatic passport visa of 90 days to Argentina as well. Pensioners will need to prove a $700 per month income to qualify for residency, while others can apply if they prove a steady income of $900 per month.

What makes you think anyone would want Americans in their country after all the damage the 'American Dream' has already done to them? Better fix your own mess before exporting it further and further!

Oh look, you've already done it worldwide...and what a mess. All America stands for these days is the export of terror, destruction and devaluation of anything worthwhile, including language.

I agree with Icelander. We US citizens are responsible for the mess the US has made in the world and it is our job to clean it up. We have to start with our political representatives. They are all representatives of powerful and destructive interests. We need to start somewhere; perhaps by joining or creating grass root local organizations and work our way out of this.

A critical measurement of "liveability" is not even being addressed. I look suspiciously for signs which might give the green light to sex and drug trade predators and did not see overt ones. However, neither are there measures specifically addressing safety and protection from human trafficing. No one in their "right mind" would care to move to an area where predatory sex trade especially is condoned or tolerated. The whole idea behind the protections of "freedom" is that everyone should be "free" .. to survive and thrive. Women, children, the powerless .. should not have to "stand and fight" OR "flee like a little girl afraid of the dark!" I realize that those comments above were probably tongue in cheek, but how much better to offer an environment where little girls, (or anyone) can look for compassionate calming of fears of the dark! Please measure safe havens for ALL looking for "better worlds" in which to live.

Icelander,

Average Americans are just like you my friend. They have nothing to do with the wars or the banksters looting the world. They're just trying to wade through the toxic sludge of corporate-government actions like everyone else.

And Pablo - would you say Max Keiser or Bob Chapman are pussies who aren't effecting change? They live "offshore". You can still change hearts and minds from abroad, and dropping out is a powerful form of protest.

Good article, followed by mindless, reactionary comments...

I for one intend to stay in America and ride out the storm, but the best thing that can happen is that Americans start leaving America and warning other countries to fortify themselves against the same mistakes that America made. Change will not come from within America, anyone who thinks so is living a pipe dream, it does not matter who you elect.

The reason America can export its destruction overseas is because the European and Asian nations are too fixated on their own racial and tribal feuds going back centuries if not millennia. America is a power simply because there is a power vacuum. If the nations of the world are too feeble to overcome their old prejudices and work together than perhaps a few American expats can snap them into line and make them realize what the stakes are.

I know a lot of people don't want to hear this, but when nations like France are thumbing their nose at us, even as they are reaping huge rewards from the corrupt economic order we defend, even as they are importing third world labor and repressing its natural traditions, even as they still can't get over their ancient hatreds of the Germans and the British, they look like a bunch of hypocritical parasites.

Wake up, this war had nothing to do with Bush and the Republicans! It was planned as early as 1998 by Clinton! It was fought to defend the very bedrock of our corrupt banking system! The Democrats allowed it to happen because they wanted to benefit from its spoils even as they used it as an election issue! Ditto for European leaders! If your nation has not overthrown its bankers and jailed them you are no better than America!

The more I tried to help the U.S. in all positive ways the more corrupt I found it to be. I am 60 years old and spent my life trying to safe people, wildlife, freedom etc. in this country. It has to do with what is right and wrong and I do not see in my life time the U.S. government and big business really caring about anything but profit. It is my time to live with like minded people that care, share and enjoy there community. It takes a strong people to see the truth and brave to start your life in a new world. It has nothing to do with what one writer (calling pussies) it has to do with caring and sanity. People looking else where are smart there are other countries that have more freedoms and peace then the U.S.

Hmmm...... Let's see here......

NZ and Iceland are both volcanic and far too small to host much vulcanism safely, so thanks, but no thanks.

Argentina is STILL a flippin' basket case and is subject to fly apart like a cheap box fan with little upset.

None of these countries are big enough to do anything much about it if a major power decides they want to move into the neighborhood and suddenly decide that the grass is greener on the other side of the border....(think Russia and China.....and if you think that's not a possibility, you're too stupid to be advising anyone anyhow).

Anonymous said...

I cannot speak for Iceland, Uruguay, Costa Rica, or New Zealand. But Argentina is not exactly paradise.

Argentines are so distrustful of their economy that many use the USD for transactions. This has led to a spike in violent robberies often resulting in death in Buenos Aires. Thieves wait outside banks and have partners tell them via subtle signals who are the customers exiting banks with lots of cash on them.

Argentine politics are also notoriously corrupt, and many within the society openly deride President Cristina Kirchner and her husband as shamelessly corrupt.

Beef and wine are indeed of great quality - this cannot be disputed. But Americans will hardly come upon an enlightened, safe, or advanced society if they relocate to Argentina. Save for those very well off living in cloistered suburbs or small towns in the interior, Americans moving to Argentina will face typical 3rd world corruption, violence, and confusion/mess that can generally only be found in the most dangerous urban areas of the United States.

Australia has a healthier economy than NZ but you have to get used to big scary bugs, spiders and snakes, and a horrible climate (except in Tasmania) with water supply problems.
Having spent 11 years living in the States I can assure you corruption in NZ is nowhere near as bad as in the US. Which is not to say we are free of it; I don't think anywhere is.

Ignore this guy - he OBVIOUSLY doesn't have a clue about what's happening. The Stimulus package has been a total failure here just like the rest of the world, the government is lying through its teeth to the population about the real state of the (fiat money) economy, lying about global warming, seeking to bleed us dry through emission-trading taxes. Natural resources ? Sure we have loads and China has it's big fat finger in the pie for all of them not to mention food, agriculture and damn near everything else. Aussies are fast becoming foreigners in our own country...
Escaped the GFC ? HA ! This is mainstream media lying bullsh*t at it's best. Just watch how Australia fares when the 2010 crash hits late this year. We'll go down like the rest of the world (albeit later than USA/Europe/UK/PIIGS)as this is a global economy now - this is 2010 not 1960 and we're not insular anymore.

Please do not judge America from the actions of its government. For too long the American People have assumed that their government would take care of things.
Now we realize that there is much rot in the system that needs to be cleaned out. The cleansing process is just now beginning. If you look carefully at the Tea Party movement, you will see that it is a reaction to the corruption of both major political parties in the US. How successful it will be will have to await the unfolding of future events.

Not sure how things are going to go down in the U.S. I expect somewhere between not good, and very, very bad. Sick of the government lies and largess, but will probably stay here until I see any hint of the following: election fraud, internet censorship, 401K seizure, freeway checkpoints, gun seizure, or vocal anti-government types vanishing into black SUV's never to be seen again.

I've looked extensively at ex patting to southern Ecuador, Argentina and Costa Rica. There's good and bad in each like anywhere else, but for now I've decided to stay here. Just finished a large greenhouse and raised garden beds. Looking at chickens and installing solar panels/inverter. Acquired 2 AK-47's in the past year to add to a shotgun and two pistols. There's a sense of quickening here I cannot quite pin down, but something inside is saying get ready!

I'm an American living in Australia for 6 months now on a work visa. Things aren't bad now, but they will get bad quickly here. Their government is omnipresent (fined for riding a bicycle without a helmet), and the Aussies wouldn't have it any other way it seems. Good fun people though, just can't see that so much of their wealth is being wasted on big government and tons of subsidies to the Aboriginals. They have a wealthy country, but they waste so much of it. So much of their industry is owned by foreigners. Housing prices are climbing much faster than population growth. Interest rates are and have been very low.

Sounds like there are a lot of folks around the world as deluded as Americans. Blaming "Americans", who have been dumbed down, indoctrinated, trained to be state worshipping sheep in corporate employee factories called "schools", for the aggressions and looting of their rulers is ignorant. There are places in the US just as colonized and bullied as any 3rd world country. The problem is seeing the central state as righteous and anything other than the organized criminal enterprise it is. You can't harness the parasites and criminals who are the state, they harness YOU. It is a delusion to think trhe state represents anyone but themselves and their clients who buy their force. They are ALL corrupt by definition: force.

Some of the comments seem to suggest that the US is safe because the US military will fight off foreign invaders. Foreign invaders are not my concern; our own military is. The military is loyal to the government, not the private citizens. The military will be used against tax evaders, and when most Americans are penniless they will gladly vote for politicians who promise to tax the hell out of those who prepared -- perhaps income tax rates exceeding 100% and/or ridiculous propery taxes (and gold possessions may be subject to a property tax if not outright theft by the government). Private farming could become illegal; the military could be used to seize your food supplies and deliver them to the cities where people are starving.

At the end of the day Costa Rica and Uruguay are where its at. Latin America has great weather, abundant resources and is the new New Land. Costa Rica and Uruguay seek to welcome and live up to this and it shows in their government, progress, and quality of life. In the here and now these are my recommendations.

Buy a small farm and flee there! Most of all grow your survival and fight to protect your family and self.

As for Argentina, I have made about 60 trips there over the years. First, let me say that Argentines may indeed own guns, but they must be registered, and are closely monitored by the government. Ammunition is scarce and very expensive. The purchase of ammunition is very closely regulated, in that one may purchase ammunition only for the calibers and/or gauges of guns he owns, and then only a very limited supply for each gun. Foreigners may easily import guns into the country, but the permit has a validity of only 90 days. And as for the much-rumored cheapness of Argentina, it's all a myth. Buenos Aires is just as expensive as New York or any other major world city. And inflation is running about 25--30% a year. A very pleasant place to visit for a few weeks, but to live there?

This current global economic crisis/new global depression, and time-line related military/political problems, are all well thought out parts of a Grand Strategy to bring about the New World Order/global high-tech slave state for the global banking families. There is, however, a overarching spiritual aspect to all of this. The spiritual aspect is ultimately God and His forces of good vs. Satan and his forces of evil. Satan's time on this earth is just about up and he intends to kill us all off as he has not been able to defeat God and His people. The coming Third World War will be the Apocalypse, the Battle of Armageddon, the Final Battle. If nothing else, the very nature of Twenty-First Century Warfare ensures that. Stirling

The notion of global governance has taken an evolutionary path to the present day, with the principle global political and economic actors and institutions incrementally constructing the apparatus of a global government. In the modern world, global governance is an inter-lapping, intersecting, and intertwined web of international organizations, think tanks, multinational corporations, nations, NGOs, philanthropic foundations, military alliances, intelligence agencies, banks and interest groups. Globalization – a term which was popularized in the late 1980s to refer to the global spread of multinational corporations – has laid the principle ideological and institutional foundations for this process. Global social, economic and political integration do not occur at an equal pace; rather, economic integration and governance on a global level has and will continue to be ahead of the other sectors of human social interaction, in both the pace and degree of integration. In short, global economic governance will set the pace for social and political global governance to follow.

And there is no reason to assume this same scenario won't play out in Uruguay or Paraguay or Timbuktu. Better off in a country with people who share your language and traditions. Best not to stand out like a sore thumb when rage rules the day.

The whether is horrible, it's a boring place without any worthwhile feature. Stay away, so I can go back to this little "3rd world" black hole, and enjoy it as ONLY an Oriental would!!

Here's an idea...

I have a message i'd like to share that deals with not allowing what is termed as "U.S. Corruption" to spread throughout the world and affect all our lifestyles wherever we may choose to live.

It is far more simple to live in our own world and hold them responsible for assuring we can maintain our lifestyles, so i'll share the following for everyone wherever they may be to assure it doesn't happen anywhere...

the CORPORATION - corporate interests hi-jacking government and it's citizens!!
i think for most people, they don't realize how impactful and important that single fact is alone and what it means !!!

With this system, money runs the country, not decisions made for the care of it's people !!

This blaming others idea, is by design, so we are fighting amongst ourselves vs addressing the real problem, the ROOT of the problem, and then everything else will take care of itself or fall in place.

We should not waste any time, effort or money on anything else but GOVERNMENT REFORM with the goal of ROOTING OUT ALL CORPORATE INTERESTS WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A TRUE GOVERNMENT THAT SERVES IT'S PEOPLE, NOT MONIED INTERESTS. We need to abolish all pork barrel, lobbying, anyone taking office who has any ties to any organizations/ corporations !!!

Best thing we can do, is rather then look for an overhaul which is too large, we need to divide and conquer as the corporate interests do to us, they put the squeeze on us little by little with everything, slowly keep increasing taxes until we don't realize how high it's gone, including gas at pump, etc. Like analogy of ... if heat a frog in a pan slowly it will settle in with warm and then eventually come to it's own death by overheating !!! This is true.

In any event the way we take the country back is by NOT funding the organizations that feed upon us as a whole, in other words, where we can, don't spend dollars or keep banking accounts with Morgan Chase for example that pulls the strings and has abolished the many safeguards with our rights and laws, also, if they won't back your dollar by gold or silver to prevent these manipulations including inflation and the rise in prices and our loss of lifestyle, then do it for yourself by holding your dollars in that same commodity, Buy Physical Silver and Gold and keep the value of your dollars that way. If they won't exchange your dollar for it, you do it !!! This would hold them responsible and couldn't silently tax us w/ inflation, etc. Housing bubble and soon to come currency bubble couldn't take place if simply 10% of the population, purchased 10% of their savings in those metals.


Buy a meal when you go out from a mom and pop (with ourselves) versus chain restaurants that are corps that are publically traded and making things with trans fats and chemicals and not in your best interest amongst other things. The hard working people trying to earn a living are trying to compete with inferior food and go out of business and we no longer will have fresh foods but poisoned ones to eat that if understood eventually enslave us in many ways.

By the way silver & gold are accepted throughout the world in exchange for any currency - even the highest valued one ! The thing is, don't allow them to use you and vote with your dollar, and how you spend and save it. We ALLOW this all to take place and POINT BLAME TO VARIOUS PEOPLE WHICH ARE ONLY FIGURE HEADS, AND PARTIES which is all a BIG WASTE OF TIME, Start taking action !!! Here's a link to start with. www.endfinancialfraud.com

To move and live abroad in a nice country would be fine if one could afford it. But I have a job I can't afford to quit, and have no finances to move elsewhere, so I guess I'll just have to stay here in the US. From all the comments above, looks as though the US is about as good as any place.

I'm amazed that no one here seems to have heard of the Restore America Plan (RAP).You'll have to do bit of reading and listening, but it is the best hope America has. www.republicoftheunitedstates.org

There are people who are changing the nation and restoring the original constitutional government. What they have done has been kept under wraps for awhile but now they want everyone to know. It is the most incredible story going right now. Everything they are doing is lawful, backed by the World Court at the Hague in the Netherlands, backed by high ranking people in the US military (who refuse to take orders from the UN). They have huge financial resources from places as far away as China, (for their own reasons), they have gold backing by a man who possesses more gold than any other individual. There's more, much more. Their backing is silent and coming from the highest places.

What is needed now are people, Americans who want to see this nation restored. In researching them I am amazed at what they stand for and the incredible backing they have. As the tea parties are discovering RAP, they are joining by the thousand. The reason is that the tea parties themselves have no plan, RAP does. Tea parties are disorganized, RAP is highly organized.

The entire plan is so ingenious that you have to believe it is divinely inspired. The current US govt. is aware of it and is trying to stifle it by writing bad things about it. But even the FBI agents who were sent to check it out, say that it is lawful, and incredible, and they are willing to back it.

The entire RAP movement came about because high-ups in the military came to one man and said, "Do something, we want our country back." From there on what is taking place is nothing short of miraculous.

In 1620 a boat load of white evangelicals landed at a place called Plymouth in what is now the state of Massachusetts. For 200 or so yrs. before that Europeans and Scandinavians and who knows who else plowed the waters inland in the "New World". We here in America have welcomed Your homeless, broken, desperate throngs for all that time.
Now, when we need help, when we need friends, as usual we find none in the world, only those who rejoice in our malady and criticize our standing! Shame on you cowards who flee the fight! There is no solace for your fears! No high fort for you to hide in! When America shakes off this disease, and we will, there will be yet another revival of hope for the whole world! My God is in charge! And he is not a fool! You refuse to learn. Refuse to see. You are hard-hearted and stiff-necked! There is no power in your vanity! Do not fear him who can destroy only the body, but fear Him who can destroy both body and soul! Selah!

How did Argentina get on this list? Perhaps the author is trying to drive American money into Argentina, which they so desperately need. Even Peru beats Argentina. Or perhaps the author was looking at data from the early 20th century when Argentina really was doing well.

A very notable omission is Chile. Chile is at the top of both Heritage Foundation's list and Transparency International's list in all of Latin America, including Uruguay and Costa Rica.

Perhaps the author thought the earthquake dropped Chile off into the Pacific. Must have gotten Chile confused with California.

Another omission is Norway. Norway is outside the Euro Zone and the European Union, making it about the most economically sound country in Europe, better than Switzerland. Its taxes are higher than Switzerland, but it is more economically sound. Being outside the Union means it doesn't go poking its nose in other people's business, as the British, French, Dutch and Spanish have done for hundreds of years and are still doing. Yes, the taxes are high, but if you want to live in Europe, it's tough to beat, except perhaps Iceland which also minds its own business.

The folks out there that hate America, and blame us for all the world's problems must be smoking the funny weed. Do they believe that Nazi Germany, The USSR, Red China, Cuba, etc. would help defend the individual freedoms that they have? The United States is the primary reason that there is any freedom left on earth. These fools should get their hands on a copy of our great Constitution, and read about the protections set forth to protect our individual liberties and rights. They should then work to copy that document. I will admit though that keeping these freedoms is not easy.

Does that make us pure as the wind driven snow? Of course not, but it does allow for more freedom and prosperity for far more people than any other system ever devised. To quote President Reagan, "use the gate test; open all the gates in the world and see where most of the people will flock to." Today, we have a President and a Congress that are trying to force a European socialist type government down our throats, but in just a few days we, "The People" will begin to strike back and return America to its founding principles. Godspeed!

This is a reply to: Anonymous said... "Wow what a bunch of tossers you Americans are!, Your country is turning into a destructive, corrupt **** hole and still you have bad things to say about others? You all deserve the crap you're in ! cos remember it is your peoples fault the world is in this hole atm. You made the mess you people need to FIX It OR Disappear!" [I fixed some of your spelling errors, it was bothering me.]
Americans did not, as a whole, cause this mess. Here is proof:
http://www.fourwinds10.com/siterun_data/history/zionism/news.php?q=1288026580
Shortly before his "suicide" in 1955, Henry H. Klein, a righteous Jew, uttered these prophetic words: "Zionism is a political program for the conquest of the world...Zionism destroyed Russia by violence as a warning to other nations. It is destroying the United States through bankruptcy, as Lenin advised. Zionism wants another world war if necessary to enslave the people. Our manpower is scattered over the world. Will we be destroyed from within or will we wake up in time to prevent it?" (Pamphlet "Zionism Rules the World").
So, it is not really the average person's fault that lives in America and is not involved in politics that this is happening. The Zionists could have chosen any country to ruin (they did it in Russia) and then set their sights on the U.S. If anything, Americans are guilty of not paying attention to what the politicians were doing in Washington except when elections come around.

Gina said...

The Zionists are just taking America down FIRST because we've been the shining example of freedom and not likely to bend over to their rule unless they destroy our jobs, homes, health, education, families (w/ their never-ending gay agenda). They've made significant inroads in all these areas, but they don't have our guns yet. They'll pull off another 911, declare martial law, then take them. We'd better be prepared to hold onto them at all costs.

So, for all you American-haters, the Zionists will be coming after all your countries, your freedom, and your children NEXT. After these hateful comments, I don't think I'd lift a finger to help.

"to escape America's Decline"

Well, after all "America" (whatever it means,perhaps USA?) was the only country in the world that someway miraculously achieved to go from barbarism to degeneration, without ever passing through civilization. So what's all this about "decline"? Should any normal country allow citizen from a degenerated country, it will pay the consequences dearly

The answer for me and for at least a few others is to stay here and find a way to go off the grid so to speak. Let's be honest, our country was founded on the idea of no taxation without representation. In my humble opinion, few people are being represented as in a true democracy. All three branches of government and the media are controlled by a plutocracy and they already consider us non-essential. The plutocracy could care less about a social safety net - attrition of the weak serves their purposes just fine.

I highly recommend you travel to other countries and immerse yourselves as much as you can in their cultures. It will help you to better understand our country and theirs. What you will discover, I would expect, is that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the mountain and things are seldom what they seem. You will gain perspective which is a very valuable asset to have in life.

I have friends who are looking to move to another country to avoid the coming economic meltdown, but I keep telling them that if their worst fears come to pass it will affect EVERY NATION, there is no truly safe haven.

Canada has one of the most lax immigration/refugee policies in the world and there re plenty of things I as a Canadian citizen could complain about legitimately, but on balance it is probably on of the richest, highest living standard, upholder of personal freedoms country in the world.

For the moment I can not see improving my situation in difficult times by moving to a strange country where I know nobody, I agree with anonymous who said: "Something tells me it doesn't matter where you go. You're probably better off staying put here with your people rather than try and hack it in a land full of hostile foreigners with no one to watch your back. -- Just stay home and try to come up with 10 people you think you can trust with your life." and I would add, become as self reliant as your economic situation will allow.

Get off the grid if you can, have a fireplace and source of wood, grow your own food and keep some chickens and a few milk goats etc.
Having guns to protect yourself is incredibly naive, it might scare some marauders off temporarily but kill or even would someone and it won't take martial law to get you on the authorities radar. Do you really think you can acquire enough guns and ammunition to hold off the military?

The comments here are above-average and confirm that expats and those thinking about becoming one are a class on their own. I have lived in Europe, the US Corporation and Argentina. But I am fluent in these languages and have earned my dues. If you think Argentina, forget the big city where a third of the people live - consider the provinces, whether the NorthWest or Patagonia in the south - the people and the circumstances are vastly different from Buenos Aires, which is a (pretty cool) hellhole, just like any other metropolis.

Argentina is as zionist as Manhattan or Hollywood, but here, there is a chance that they will smoke them out once they realize what is going on. And there is no police or military force worth mentioning. It may surprise you that Argentina was the one country considered by Herzl, the other one being Israel. I can not say that Argentines are essentially different from other populations, but they have, in their recent history, coined (and supported with their bodies) the best phrase that I know to solve the problem: "THEY ALL HAVE TO GO!" This was in 2001/2002, when their bank deposits were confiscated and devalued by the pricks lacking foreskins.

Yes, it is tough to settle in a new country whose language you do not speak. The culture there, though, is very similar to that of the US, in that the population is made up of many nationalities, though mostly from Spanish and Italian stock.

The US Corporation of America is the entire world in a microcosm, one single, large country with the best constitution there was - not much left of it, though. What happens there is symbolic for the entire world. I applaud both those who decide to stay, or, most likely, can not afford to leave, and I have empathy with those who are lucky enough to take the plunge, which takes courage. Nobody really hates Americans as such, but the system that they have to endure - and now: fight, subvert, neutralize and abolish. Look at the lame Germans, they are so deluded that they don't even sniff what is coming. In my opinion, they win the brainwashing competition.

I remember the headline on the fun-site The Onion, back then in late 2008:

"Black Guy Asking Nation for Change"

Whatever happens in and to the US Corporation happens to the world, only on a smaller scale.

All those comments are conflicting. What about the property taxes in U.S.A.? IT'S OUTRAGEOUSLY high in Muscogee County and Harris County in the state of Georgia, U.S.A., driving people out of homes/lands that's been in their generations, to live in below poverty homes and homelessness compounded by high medical costs and prescription costs. We pay taxes on every item purchased and our paychecks pay both state the federal taxes and it's still not enough that they had to include high property taxes just to pay for public schools even their own children have graduated long ago. Only parents whose children go to public schools should be the ones to pay property taxes for public schools so that the parents of children who graduated can afford to pay their children's college education and maintain a high living standard and be able to afford to pay high medical/prescription bills until the medical suppliers/pharmacies are regulated to lower the medical/prescription bills. High property taxes, high medical bills, high cost of prescriptions are fierce factors motivating the exodus of Americans. Icelander, there are over 38 million Deaf People who have nothing to do with the decline of morals/values/justice in the U.S.A.. Deaf people in U.S.A. have no Rights when it comes to inheriting fortunes from their parents. Their hometown's justice proved ruthless, cruel and audistic. (Audism/Audist means racism against Deaf and anything Deafness/Deaf Culture. It's a hate crime in its subtlest but highest refined art of racism destroying Deaf People's livlihood/the world as they know it.)

What has been happening in the US for the past 10 years will be coming to a country near you sooner or later. This is a global agenda by the Elites which is to first bring down the standard of living of the average American by devaluing the US dollar throughout 2011 where they will become serfs working the land for their feudal masters (IE Central bankers who will own everything) and one by one will spread to other countries throughout the world. It has all been planned far in advance. These elites are the parasites of humanity.

I think it is funny that other nations would blame all Americans for the 'American' problem where it is actually a global issue.
Did we not learn from Germany? The global community, outraged and solely blaming the Weimer Republic, brought them to their knees. As a population does when it is vulnerable and desperate, they grew into a monster hell bent on rising above their predicament.
Shunning and berating an entire people after being used and manipulated by their own government is not in the world's best interest. Not ONE country has EVER had a pristine record. And this system cannot have been enacted without the help of corrupt politicians from all over the world. Greed is universal and there will always be a patsy used to take the blame, presently us Americans.
Historically, while people fled their declining countries, many sought shelter here over the years, enabling us to grow the way we have. We used to be the safe haven. But now there is nowhere to hide, only places to soften the blow. No one will be untouched.

And you pointing a finger at an American for trying to escape, you might as well be pointing it at every man woman and child in history that ever tried to escape tyranny.

The problem is international/offshore bankers not just America. Americans are stuck in the LEFT- RIGHT PARADIGM. It's seems easier for the average American to blame the democrats or the republicans instead of realizing that both parties are controlled and manipulated by the same small group of elite international/off-shore bankers who have screwed over many countries.

It is the bankers who lend this money to countries, create the money out of no-where (with nothing of value aka gold/silver etc) backing the money, and then charge interest on this money. That is perpetual debt that will never be paid back and the only ones who profit are the bankers. Why do you think so many developing/3rd world nations are in so much debt? It't the IMF who comes in lends money knowing that then the country will be so indebted that they will have to sell all the natural resources/land etc to pay the debt back.

Who really has the power? The American gov. was a puppet used just like so many other countries.

Hi everyone,
After traveling considerably to Central America, I am surprised the Republic of Panama was not mentioned. I have traveled their many times and when objective comparison is done, Panama offers a rich and robust list of valuable benefits N Americans and Europeans are seeking backed up by a booming commerce based economy, private banking, infrastructure, investment, dual language, rule of law, almost no debt and the ATM cash-flow canal to pay for the government and services now being tripled in size. Certainly worth investigating for living and investing returns.

So this webpage didn't help too much. But I can contribute some bile to this bilious page. One gaffe of this page is lauding Costa Rica. I lived there for a year and half. I am from the U.S. but not a self-absorbed consumerist, which is unlike the Statespeople you will find in CR. The CRans would slit my throat from behind because of the other Statespeople or even Europeans(evolutionarily) there that they see. If you are European, I don't think it would be inaccurate to say that your chances of getting shot, stabbed, robbed are better than 50% in the city, compounding yearly. The same holy-- vibe is at the rural coasts but slightly more relaxed. The white-ish are rich, and run the country; the dark are treated like refuse by them.

Humans are humans in any country: many bad, many decent. No human is better than another; none of us can leave the subspecie.

People realize that they are miserable and that they can use it to get power. That's what humans want most, essentially. I was once miserable and likewise reckoned I could use it for power even though it hurt. What I didn't realize until recently was that I was an airhead, that misery actually is a choice. Misery comes from what thoughts you choose. Choose a happy thought every moment; sing a Christmas hymn or clean self-ridicule. When I die, a lifetime of misery instead of joy would have been my choice, not required. Justice is not a law of physics on earth; it is far too fleeting to be seen wanting it too much. It is important to be very optimistic.

Too, crooks run the country. The country is run by chaos. If a "police" (and they are aboriginal blood) pulls you over, they will threaten you unless you give them $200 USD cash; that is not an isolated anecdote - you hear it from everyone down there; they even do it to locals who may be "fat"!

I understand that Guatemala is bad, but CR is very similar, except the aboriginees in CR may be more miserable because the airhead Rich smash the aborigees faces into the rich's First-World advertisements that they plaster the place.

Hold your breath over bridges - even if there is an inspection certificate for any of the infrastructures, it just may be worthless; it seems to be the human genetics down there to accomplish nothing - but it may not be; in the U.S., things are comparatively very sane and at least [50%] sure, acknowledging the U.S. corruption (terminal at high-levels). The point is that people in the U.S. get a job done and the inveterate laborers take "pride" in their part of the whole.

The rich in CR would have you believe the etiology to be inferior genetics of the aboriginees, but it is most likely that States laborers have hope, something of which aboriginal CRans would not dream; the States laborers have the comfort of enfranchisement, having their own nice vehicle and ubiquitous respect(even the White Trash), and not omnipresently reminded that they are genetically inferior because they were born diminutive and dark compared to the rich there who keep their feet on the necks of the aboriginees. Now the rich there are bribing the crooked aboriginee police to keep all of the aboriginees with cars out of the rich people's way on all of the the roads. If you have a sweet-ass Landrover, the pot holes will be nothing compared to what they were to the aboriginees who used to be on the road and had to take every pothole in something like (life-savings) an '82 Plymouth Colt.

The rich made CR nicely into a refugee camp for the aboriginees. Anything other than that about CR (e.g. avant-guardism in any way) is refulgent B.S. Anything other than what a good job God himself did down there with the environment before the supremacist imperialists came is a [lie] synthesized by the rich there who want you to take your money to them.

The schools are abhorrent (even worse than the U.S.!), nothing more than depravedly morally bankrupt Day-Care (listlessness); of-course the rich kids at least get sweet math training in the few seemingly basket-case -run private schools. The same schools tout English proficiency, but that too seems to be a wash.

The kids who are fluent are fluent because of their home life or internationality. And that too is entirely different from proficiency in - reading - English. One leading private school there is brim-topped with texts in english, with the unheralded discrepancy that the texts sit there honorarily and are never read.

Most of the teachers there are native and if anyone wanted to know the truth (which is ostensibly the opposite of any CR individual's personal charge - all are inculcated with avant-guarde-impression-management like you would think of the poor populace cogs in communist China), which indeed no one does, they would sit through those teachers' classes and see them instruct the students entirely in native Spanish, with Spanish texts or zeroxes!

First of all, any American who would run from the country just because things gets bad is not much of an American to start with. You're acting more like a Venezuelan than an American. Stand and fight. If you do run, please don't come back.

Next, you're out of your frigging gourds if you think the Costa Ricans and Uruguayans are going to allow hordes of American refugees into their countries. Get a CLUE! Talk of "open borders" and "free immigration" are only supported when those nations are dumping their unwanted poor into the USA, but their immigration policies are strictly enforced to keep riff raff OUT. And if you think that Costa Rica is "peaceful" and therefore you could go there without worries, you're ignorant. There is crime there at the best of times. I lived there for a year, and the conflicts between Nicraguan refugees and the Ticos was constant. Now, go there as a gringo along with an influx of thousands of others, and the resentment will quickly boil over.

Keep in mind, the situations you're describing, a collapse of the economy, will be DEVASTATING in poor countries. They won't be willing to share their resources with rich gringos abandoning their own country. You will meet resistance.

New Zealand and Oz sound good, but they have strict gun control laws, so if things go south, you'd be defenseless. And don't think that there are not Australian criminals. So Oz is just as likely as the US to have roving bands of looters. I'm not sure about what would happen in NZ.

Iceland--hear the name? Not known for it's warm climate and long growing cycle. And the people are a tightly knit and clannish lot. They speak their own language that is difficult to learn, and are NOT famously open to Americans.

Let's get real. if the Schumer hits the fan, you better be ready to stay and fight for survival.

Don't blame the American people for what has happened to the US since they make it happen world wide and you are just next on the list.

What happened to the US is what Henry Ford warned us about in the book "The Global Jew". What happened to the US is what General McArther tried to warn us about. What happened to the US is what John Kennedy tried to warn us about in his speech a month before he was killed. Kennedy was going to take them down.

What happened to the US is a cabal of racist Zionist Jews took control of our money system and then our economy and then our press and government and now our military.

They use our country to further the goals of Israel and their global domination agenda. They are loyal to no nation other than Israel. They have been driven out of 140 countries or nations over the last 2000 years alone for doing this.

These days they are plundering our economy with pump and dump to put people in debt. to their banks. They have stashed enough money in secret cafr accounts to pay off the entire national debt. www.cafrman.com

That is what happened to America.

Well I just can't help but add my $.02 worth here. I'm not American but what we're embroiled in is global in scope and what goes around will come around no matter where you live. The idea of Republicanism is a grand one that holds forfront, the rights of the individual as opposed to the majority. The USA has been a leader in trends right from the time it was created. It's that frontier overcome any obstacle mindset that set her apart from other countries and peoples. Her peoples came there to escape the tyranny of countries that held little hope for common people. It's through the blood and guts of those people that a great country was forged. She set an example to the rest of the planet and was a trendsetter. Many of the great inventions come from America that were thought of and crafted by common people in little shops and any space that they could find. The corporations grew from the commerce that was created by that brilliance. Stand up and take it back America. You did it before, step up to the plate and do it again. The globalists have to take you down first before they can subjugate the rest of us. They call us useless eaters, meanwhile they stand on our shoulders. The only real wealth is our toils. Time to put things back in a real perspective.

Sure, if you're a socially insecure, stressed out American Suburbanite then move to Costa Rica, Argentina, Uruguay, or hell, even Antarctica and see where it gets you.

PART 1:

Interesting comments here as people are all thinking about escaping from the U.S.S. Titanic, either for or against this idea.

Let me weigh in on this timely topic.

First of all, the Karma of these United States is the indiscriminate and unmerciful killing of people, men, women, children, and animals, from the air, i.e., aerial bombing campaigns. Millions of people have perished from American bombs launched from the air.

Starting in WW II (Dresden, Hiroshima, etc) to Panama Christmas 1989 to Iraq Wars 1 and 2 to Yugoslavia to Afghanistan to Libya, etc., etc., etc.

Killing from the Air. Karma from the Air.

The return of this Karma from the Air will be nuclear war upon the soil of these United States. So, any one thinking that they can be safe living off in some urban area in the U.S. is kidding themselves because of nuclear radiation fallout (maybe certain parts on the west coast might be ok because they would be upstream of the nuclear fallout, like Ashland, OR.)

Second, all the English-speaking countries including Canada, Australia, and New Zealand share the basic problem of having NOT enough corruption in their police and military systems. More "vanilla|" or everyday corruption there is, the better it will be for survival purposes.

What I mean by this is that when, not if but when, the New World Order (NWO) and the Global Police State (GPS) gets implemented, these English-speaking countries, with their very professional and usually non-corrupt, i.e., "I am just doing my job," police and military personnel will be glad to follow orders and do as they are told from the top (which is controlled by the PTB running the NWO). Following orders to pay that damn mortgage is THE control mechanism. Think Nazi Germany and the Good Germans who were just following their orders, and they didn't have a big fat mortgage to worry about!

Corruption in countries like South America becomes a positive in this perspective and understanding, as there is more room for "negotiations" during NWO and GPS. Try to talk back to a Houston highway patrol and that fat pig (have you seen the size of these cops in Houston lately?) might just taser you for fun.

David said...

PART 2:

As to the 5 countries recommended to escape to, here is my take:

1. Uruguay is mostly farmland and flat. The fact that is on the Atlantic Ocean and coastal, i.e., low elevation, is a negative if tsunami is a concern. It is a third world nation with first world expenses as someone commented above. Not recommended.

2. Costa Rica. Bi-coastal. Too close to EEUU (the U.S. and the influence there of). Countries like Chile, Columbia, and Peru have too much of American influence and presence in terms of military bases, military advisors, military troops, financial and economic "aid," etc. If you are escaping from the "yankees," you might not want to relocate to these countries. Not recommended.

3. New Zealand. See my comments above about English-speaking countries. Not recommended.

4. Iceland. It is very remote and the population size is, what, 300,000? Small population, but land mass and lots of geothermal energy sources (which could be good or bad). The people there are stuck in some "Scandinavian" time-warp in terms of human relationships. Read Michael Lewis' excellent article called "Wall Street on the Tundra" on Iceland at http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2009/04/iceland200904. Only recommended if you are of the Scandinavian stock.

5. Argentina. I have lived there for 2 years. Argentina is a country of great contrast. If you plan on moving there, you need to know where in Argentina you want to relocate to. In Buenos Aires, there is too much people, crime, pollution, etc. In the south, in the so-called "Lake District" is where you want to look. Argentina is a country rich with natural resources (clean water, farmland, silver, agricultural products, etc.). It takes a lot to fu*k up this beautiful country. But remember the teaching on corruption above; it can work to your advantage if done properly. Price inflation rate (food, fuel, salaries, things that normal people need to live and survive, etc.) in Argentina is between 25 to 30% per year. That is one hell of an inflation rate! However, if one knows how to grow clean, renewable energy (alcohol or ethanol) AND organic food in greenhouses in local communities, then inflation is not going to be a problem. Recommended, but you need some expertise on people on the ground living and working in Argentina to help you. Maybe I can help.

Iceland has been the only country with the backbone to tell the corrupt bankers to go to hell. All problems of the world are trace back to the fiat paper money system controlling the world. Go to honest coin money system and outlaw and hang on sight anyone that says we need private banks and paper money.

Have been to most of these countries. Buenos Aires is probably the most expensive nation I have been to. Long history of systematic violence and abuse of power. But maybe as said, the countryside is better? People in B.A. rude and elitist. Uruguay ...known as switzerland of S. American. Can't imagine it is too cheap, but have only been across the bay. Costa Rica seems lovely, but little "civilization," and city (San Jose) is normal third-world affair. Whether or not it is true, re 2,000 soldiers from US reported above, it is in the middle of countries where US has been known to cause lots of trouble, which is concerning to say the least. New Zealand is a wonderful place with kind people and plenty of land. Do think though that it is slowly going the way of US. Iceland would be amazing if learning the language wasn't a requirement for residency ... it is known to be one of the most difficult languages to learn, worldwide. The US is a disaster too ... but hwere isn't it?????

Try Malaysia. I've lived in Penang for 2.5 years on a tourist visa. The crime is almost non-existent, food is cheap, rentals cheap, accommodating police to foreigners (Westerners only), village living or city.

The weather is warm, but not too hot. The people are as friendly as they come. The Muslim religion practiced by the Malays is rather liberal, too. Electricity and water costs are a joke! Good Internet connection and stable power that you'd find in the West. Healthcare is top notch and cheap!

From here, all of Asia is a quick jaunt, too. Ninety-day visa can be renewed over and over by skipping into Thailand and back within six hours by bus.

Penang has cheap places (but not seedy) to live and luxurious places to live, cheap restaurants and expensive ones--though the expensive ones are cheap by Western fare.

As a hint to readers, first look for what is referred to as Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) of a country to assess affordability. High PPP countries will resemble the US in many ways. Low PPP countries are third-world, carrying with it inconveniences and most likely a higher threat of crime. Look for PPP countries somewhere between $15,000 per capita to $25,000 per capita, then go from there. Consider many Muslim countries, as the propaganda from the West about Muslims is truly off the wall. I know; I've lived among Malays, and I'll tell you, they are fine people with excellent moral values and sense of community. and the best part is that they're not interested in talking about their faith unless you ask. I highly recommend Malaysia (not KL or other big cities) as a first stop to acclimate to Asia. It's a good place, especially Penang, to call home while exploring the rest of Asia.

Boy, I'll tell you. Gotta love Canada. They have very few enemies and people tend to get along there. Winter makes sure that they do not get a gazillion people wanting into the country. Banking system works, social safety net is a bit too big for me as it ultimately tends to make people less inclined to take their responsibilities, but they seem to manage nonetheless.

Easy place to start a business. Corporate taxes reasonable. Dividends not taxed highly so retirement is a cinch. Few people, lots of water, lots of resources and a cleansing winter each year. Yup, not a bad place when you think about it. Good thing winter is long there, because otherwise there would be 300 Million people there and things would be more difficult.

To all the goons using words such as "pussy" to describe free will and travel:

First, adjust your vocabulary. A lot of great men of history (Marco Polo) resent your abuse of anatomy to describe their adventures. Also, quite a few discarnate Russians, Jews, and other folks are chuckling at you from the ether.

Would you say to someone hopelessly trapped in a squalid American ghetto who was presented with the opportunity to relocate with a job to another place: "You're a vagina, loin, or soiled thigh. Stay there and fight you prostate!"?

Really, begin to think before your head whithers into a mindless meatcake.

Some will stay to fight. Some will stay to rot. Some will remain to make trouble. And others will do as they will.

What are you actually doing? Are you simply afraid you'll be left alone, and that no one will fight for you? Or are you really such patriots? Hmm.

And to all you who think a vagina is a sign of weakness, you are lost (at least temporarily). Start thinking. Accept diversity; but stay and fight if you will, and quietly accept the honor implied. Half the population could leave yesterday, and we could have beaten the bastards today, if we really did something.

In any case those who are in positions to stand up for what is right just stand quietly by and do nothing. The average American cannot control any of this. Our vote is our greatest power and the cheating during elections is growing to the point that it is all a joke.

Whoah whoah whoah, watch your generalities there, buddy. Some of us have fought the ridiculous policies of our government from the start. Some of us are non-partisan and try our best to live not as good Americans, but good human beings. I, for instance, am very much an isolationist except when it comes to international aid and disaster relief. If I've spent 10 or 15 years of my life trying to fight against the tide of my own peers and their ridiculous desire to legislate stupid stuff like sexuality, why shouldn't I have the right to try and make a difference somewhere else? Smart Americans don't export their entire country when they move, which seems to be the sentiment I'm seeing from a lot of other posters - they don't want American citizens bringing their economic habits and other bad juju with them to a new home. I'd never do that. Some of us don't want to live like the rest of our countrymen do.

So what's wrong with a citizen of the world trying to build a life and make a difference somewhere else? A lot of people here are too young to have voted the past few administrations into power, and so their stake in the entire mess is very delicate. How do they finish "their" mistakes if they didn't set them into motion?

With Obama being elected my wife and I have been debating leaving the country we love as it is obvious that America will fall. We ultimately decided to stay. The truth is that both parties are criminal and both ignore the law when it suits them. They are both working to rob all americans and anyone else they can. Its time for Americans to stand together and fight. We need to use the system as it was established by our founding fathers. I believe in fixing our system and bringing it back to what was originally established. Laws are meant to apply to everyone. Our politicians should never be allowed to pass bad laws "Obama Care" and exempt them selfs like they immediately did. There are so many examples of this and other corruptions that it would take far more than this blog to list them all. But I digress as my point being if the system is so broken as to not allow us to repeal and remove the corruptions from our laws and the corrupt politicians then we need to do what our founding fathers did. Thankfully they thought of this and ensured we would have the right to bear arms. I hope it doesn't come to that but realistically I don't see it happening any other way.

It's the government screwing up America. The people are screwed they don't listen to us. They continue to allow illegals to come here and give them free hand outs and free medical. The people who came here leagally and were born here have no voice what so ever. The government doesn't give a crap about us.

Anonymous said...

It is the government, racism, religion [which, yes, I know is everywhere] that is screwing up America. Mainly the government and the politics but it is the people that is voting the politics in; therefore the people are partially to blame too, please stop trying to put the blame elsewhere when all of us are to blame here. Nobody is innocent in this, I know nobody wants to be at fault and maybe nobody is purposely but everyone has a little fault here, including myself, as I am American too. Those in government were average ordinary people at one time but they got corrupted when they got money and power. I have tried to stay optimistic about the outcome but this country is doomed and if it does get back on track, it will be at least a few generations down the road. I would guess at least a few generations down the road and maybe I am being cynical, I will admit, but who can blame me?

Even if I am, it will definitely be no time in our lifetime and probably no time in our children's lifetimes either. Maybe in our grandchildren's lifetimes but that's just being generous and that is a big 'IF'.

This is precisely why I am considering moving out of the country myself. Why stay in a country that my politicians refuse to listen to me in? A country that my children can't be proud of?

Advice for those trying to move:
I would have to check my funds of course and word of advice to anyone considering it, save up the proper funds before you move. Also realize no country is perfect, you're never going to find a country without faults, every country will have its problems. You just have to figure out which ones you're willing to compromise with. Do your research on your preferred country first too, don't just move because it's 'pretty' or it 'seems' nice. You may be surprised when you get there if you know nothing about the country. If it's a country that has a different culture and language than your own, obviously learn about the culture and language before you make the move. Visiting first is ideal but if you cannot do that, look at places online, look at jobs online, have a nice sized fund setup [doesn't have to be the size of a rich person but it does have to be a good sized one because you may not find a job right away and you will have to work]. Plan ahead of time, don't do everything last minute and follow the necessary procedures it may take to move to whichever country it is you're attempting to move to.


-
I'm not saying America is the worst place in the world, oh no, there's much worse. I'm just saying I am losing hope in it and I am considering leaving it, and I do not want my children growing only to be disappointed just as most are. I am not encouraging anyone else to, nor am I saying you shouldn't, but merely giving advice for those who decide they might want to.

anyone from NZ please comment on how you like the policies of your counrty and if you like it there.

Listen up all of you!
Foreign and domestic…
After reading the threads posted here I can see the problem is very clear, everybody is hateful, greedy, and brain washed into a survival of the fittest mode. Every country in the world has bad and good people. I have neighbors that would kill you for the last crust of bread, and on the other side of me I have neighbors I would give my last crust of bread.

What we all fail to see is that together we are strong and divided we fall. There is no country exempt from the evil of this world. I promise you that if America falls, the world will be directly behind it. None of you are safe anywhere.

Please don’t judge the American people by the corrupt political system in Washington. Believe me the people would love to see it go away. Both Democrats and Republicans.

It is our problem and we will fix it. Unfortunately it looks like there will be lives lost and children suffer before the job is done because the evil that we fight will do anything to hold on to what they have stolen from us all.
The American people allowed it to go too long and it will take a lot to fix it.

However, as the citizens of the world it is our responsibility to band together and weed out this evil. Crush it so that it cannot grow. Good still outnumbers evil –

We have over 300 million Americans here and even if there were a million evil political foreign and domestic foes our numbers will be able to overcome them and subdue them and when we do and we will, we will remember those who have forsaken us in our time of need. As American citizens we still will not turn our backs on any of them or you. We will be there to help you weed out your evil and even invite you to become one of us because that is what most Americas do. We the people do not expect even a thank you and we never will because that is what Americas heart is made of, the compassion and love is un-conditional. Try to figure that out. We know there are people like this in your countries as well and we hope they will have the guts to stand and say go America we are behind you because we strive to have the same freedoms and privilege that Americans have died for over the ages.

I’m not talking about our corrupt political system, but only our people system.
Americans are made up of all the nations of the world we came here to prove that everyone has the right to be free, everyone has the right to free speech and to make an honest living to raise their families.

True Americans love all people and we are commanded by our creator to be this way.

America has been there for every country through many of their times of need at one time or another. America is still the hope for a free world. It has been infiltrated by outsiders that have used their wealth to buy our political system, our jobs and much of our lands and still the hopes of the children of the world, not just American children but all children.
If you want to leave America, then go with our best wishes, if you want to stay and fight or join us in our fight, we would be honored to have you and call you friend.
God bless America and God bless all who have the compassion to care about their fellow man.
Warmly
Bartholomew

I agree; but let me ask what are you doing to educate and/or organize those around you? If the answer is nothing then you are part if the problem. It's time to stop complaining and take a stand! Start by talking with family and friends about today's issuses destroying this country and get them to talk with their family and friends and so on so forth. Continue this and a network of like-minded people can change the world!

Quit blaming Obama and Bush and Clinton for that matter...this has been set in motion eons ago people!! Orchestrated and set in place for a "time such as this"! WAKE UP!!

This is not a black and white issue. Not a Hispanic and Jew issue either! All the Martin's and Coretta Scott King's of the world can't help us none! The Klu Klux Klan (or, whatever you call them) ain't on your side!

Rest assured people....THIS TIME THEY COMING FOR ALL OF US!Via your home, your money, your job, your guns...hell they coming for the Constitution of America! People, they're coming for you and I, for our children; while we sit here and hate on each other for something as trivial as the freaking color of each others skin.

How hypocritical! What the hell ever happen to: "together we stand, divided we fall?" What? The Whites think they're enough to make it happen all by their lonesome? What? The blacks think they need no one else? Who? The Hispanic's, Tell me? Which nationality think "they're an island"? That "they" have the answer?

Let me tell you who's got it....ALL OF US TOGETHER! Running ain't gonna cut it folks, wrong answer. Search your hearts. I don't know about you, but I'm starting with THIS woman in the mirror. One love

Your wrong this big eared troll dictator we call the president has completely stomped all over the constitution and created more debt on his watch then every president combined. Since Obama things have gotten worse and very dark. It didn't have to be this way we had a chance to make things better but half America has been deceived by this low life foreigner that shouldn't even be president. Why are we even letting him get away with this stuff main stream media are covering up . Obama knows this. He's laughing at you. Obama has divided America. Stop being lured into his thinking. You wake up. OBama is the precurser setting us up very very quickly lke know other for the anti Christ.

We have started a business in Taiwan www.investtaiwan-formosa.com that helps people start a foreign business here in Taiwan that includes an ARC(Alien Resident Card), work permits for the person or persons along with their family members..this entitles them to stay in Taiwan for as long as they wish and gives them and their family the rights like anyone else that lives in Taiwan such as bank accounts, health care, Drivers Lic. and education for their children...it also gives them access to physical gold, physical silver and RMB bank accounts.

Not all of us are in a position to defend ourselves so sometimes if we have relations to other countries that may be a good thing.

A good example is we have Scottish and English blood relations (Mostly Scottish) and Scotland is going to vote to become an independent nation free from the EU with their own head magistrate and Queen of Scotland.

It's called Vote YES for Scotland and here is a Facebook group.

And another site explaining the benefits it would have of being free of the EU crapola.

The comments made above by Americans about our nation, our government, and our electoral process is a huge clue why the US is a mess. No rational person believes this country went so bad in the 5 years Obama has been president, nor will it magically be fixed when he leaves office. We've let corporations take us over because we're greedy and money-hungry, and instead of changing your ways, you're going to take your spoiled sour attitudes to other nations rather than support your own country. Please do go then, those of us who will continue to stand and fight for this country won't miss you. Signed, a proud USA liberal.

The problem here in the US is the corporations own the government and there is little the citizenary can do against so much entrenched power. Its wrong to blame everyday Americans for the misdeeds of the corporations control them through propaganda. Many of us are awake and loathe both of the corrupt political parties.

I don't blame people for leaving the USA. Look what liberals have done to it, if anything they should be deported to North Korea. After all, everything there is government controlled -- just the way they like it. Corporations have no taken over, stupidity has from the left. things started getting bad in 2004, and has rapidly declined since 2008 (as confirmed by yearly data). I'd rather leave the USA and support a country I believe in than a country with neanderthal liberals trying to take over and punish people for their success.

You all better shut up and stop debating. This country (America) is terrible. I don't give a sh*t about this country (and I was born here). I am considering relocating somewhere else. This list is not that bad, Uruguay and Costa Rica are mentioned in a lot of places. But Argentina, really? Unless you are in the rural areas I suppose. But there are many other countries. There is Ecuador and Mexico in Latin America. New Zealand is also mentioned in many lists. In Asia, your best bet is Malaysia. Great internet, nearly-developed living, it is a multi-cultural society, and even has a program (Malaysia: My Second Home) for people interested in living there. In Europe, Spain is a beautiful country...but I don't recommend it because of the financial crisis there...but you know what...you don't have to leave America anyways. Your best bet in America are the mountain states (Montana, Idaho, Wyoming). They are mostly rural, unlike the urban centres you see in a lot of America...

Has anybody ever watched the TV series Continuum? Its a sci-fi about when the government goes broke and all the huge billionaire corporations bail it out, but in return disband congress and replace it with the Corporate Congress and the Bill of Rights has been terminated. I don't see that as so much of a fantasy scenario. Corporations are already/have been for decades, sidestepping the Constitution.Universal Random Drug Testing is just a small part of their intrusion into our private lives...I find it odd that for such haenous crimes as rape and murder, a DA has to prove reasonable suspicion to obtain a warrant to compell the accused to give up a DNA sample, but the Workmans' Comp Insurance companies can demand that anybody has to pee in a cup (or worse/more intrusive like a hair follicle test) with NO suspicion whatsoever. I see this a violating THREE of our rights, the Right to Privacy, The Right to Non-Incrimination, an the Right to DUE PROCESS!!! So in this society, if you are an able bodied person that wants to work, pay taxes and actually be financially responsible, I have to first prove that I don't use any drugs (despite Marijuana being an HERB...a drug is something an egghead cooked up in a lab) then the government takes some of those tax dollars and just GIVES it to people who do NOT work for a living, can't afford to even feed themselves, yet they pop out baby after baby they can't afford to feed and I have have my rights trampled on to EARN my paycheck. How retarded! And that is just one of a million retarded aspects to living in this rediculous hypocrisy of a country. We also pay the slary of EVERY member of Congress AND their wonderful insurance plan while we are being raped by the huge corporate insurance companies...so in summary, we work and pay for all these people (congress included) AND their healthcare when most of us can barely afford to house and feed ourselves...and now they are going to FORCE us to buy insurance fromt these corporate thugs or pay a fine!!! I am anti-republican and I like that somebody actually finally tried to do something about healthcare in this country, but it DOES need some fine tuning to be sure.

I WANT OUT! I want to not only become an expat, but I want to fully remove myself from the American Disease and become a citizen of a decent country. I'm having a hard time locating reliable forums where I can communicate with people in other countries and try to network and get myself out of here! I'm poor and it seems that most people that get to leave already have money or connections. How does someone making less than $30K/year manage to get the hell out of this retarded trap?

I am the son of a career US Navy chief, the brother of a combat veteran of the US Army and also combat veteran of the US Army myself. To the best of my knowledge and belief, there have never been any draftees in my family. I have voted in every election since I cast my first ballot in 1972. My father, mother and brother all voted their entire adult lives. I have never voted for a Democrat because I detest their policies and their corruption. I voted Republican once (Ford v Carter) because I believed Carter would bring economic disaster to the US but never voted for a Republican before or after because I detest their hypocrisy and corruption.

But I can't hold my nose and live in country ruled (as opposed to governed) by Reid, Pelosi, McConnell, Boehner or any other career or second (or third) generation political hack.

A friend of mine from my SF days owned (owns?) a dive shop in Costa Rica, close enough that he dived (dives?) the Blue Hole. I'm 62 now and haven't seen or heard from him in decades but from what he told me, Costa Rica is the place for me.

I hope he's right because now that I have to pay the Federal government four thousand dollars a year just to breathe, it simply isn't worth it to live in America anymore.

Repubilcrats made America what it is today and they can have it.And they can have it anyway they want it but I'm not paying for it anymore.

As soon as I can dispose of my property, Costa Rica, here I come!

I am not worried for myself in the US but I am for my little grandsons. They're babies and deserve a decent life. Most Americans still don't get it. I have only become aware just how corrupt our government is over the past 15 years or so and the more I learn the more horrified I am. I would love for those babies to leave and have decent life but I don't know that one can escape what the elites are bringing down upon the world. It is not just the United States that will suffer. It will affect many millions of people. Be prepared to defend yourselves and stand up for liberty

Liberalism SUCKS. Don't get all caught up in that BS utopia they all just swear they are gong to create. It fails every single time. The only way to live your life is to take care of yourself. Depend on yourself. Work and support yourself. Be charitable to those that need a hand in life if you are able but do not be an enabler to those that refuse to toe the line. No one will take better care of you than you. I am not particularly religious but 'Do Unto Others' is a pretty good way to lead your own life.

The entire American Political System is designed to keep all citizens constantly fighting with each other (Repugnantcan Vs. Demonazi). What a nation of frikken crybabies. Those who are not continually bickering and NEVER finding any middle-ground are sitting on their couch or at their computer on Facebook or watching TV/Movies. Apparantly nobody in this generation has ever heard of the Orwellian 1984 scenario which is very alive and self-evident if you'd only open your retarded eyes. Salvery was never abolished...c'mon, Lincoln was a Republican...all he did was make a business decision...its cheaper to just throw a couple dollars at your slaves every week and make them fend for themsleves (after giving most of their money to insurance companies and corporate healthcare). This is a nation of fat lazy cattle just feeding at the trough. Why do the people that 'entertain' us make some of the highest salaries??? Most of those football playing idiots are broke within a few years of not playing anymore....how do you piss away millions and millions of dollars? Representatives in government??? REALLY? How can anybody with a brain think that we are being represented in Washington at all...the only people getting elected are the wealthiest because they are the only ones that can afford TV advertising....since most people are slaves to the TV, they only know what they see there. How is this any different than the old times that suposedly led to the creation of America? The ultra rich (Kings and Lords) suck all the money out of everybody's pocket to pay for their lavish lifestyles while we all toil endlessly to make that money FOR THEM! I really don't see it being any better anywhere else since greed and lust are the very cornerstone of human existence on this planet.

I was considering Costa Rica, but you can't hold a job unless you're a citizen and you can't be a citizen unless you invest a minimum of $200,000 in land/property, or be an actual investor in a real estate development enterprise. I'm the common working slave...The older I get, the LESS money I make thanks to constant buying and selling of even the smallest Mom & Pop shop that you think you CAN actually work to retirement at....only to have new owners come in and slash your pay, or when they think they are paying you too much, despite all the extra business your efforts brought them, they'll cut you free before you even see it coming. With the job I finally had to take before I run out of money, I'm now making only 27 cents more per hour than the job I had way back in 2003!!! so after calculating for Cost of Living, I'm making less now than I did 11 years ago, as I get closer to getting OLD (only 47 now...but that's a bit late in life to have less than $10,000 to one's name!!)

I don't think there is an escape from this life...as I stated in earlier posts, the wealthy have exploited everyone under them since the dawn of man (whatever side of the Science/Religion fence you sit on). It seems America in particular is the absolute highest offender...the vast majority of the American economy is based on COMMITTING the "7 Deadly Sins". I've actually made a flow-chart showing the progression THROUGH the 7 and how it relates precisely to the American 'way of life'. But being a full-circle thing, its like the chicken/egg trap. Does the PRIDE of the 'haves' flaunting their material wealth and lavish lifestyles cause others ENVY, or is the ENVY first that causes one to LUST after something, acquire it and then feel the PRIDE of that? I actually sit atop the science/religion fence but America seems bent on convincing the rest of the planet that we are primarily a CHRISTIAN based nation, yet seem to revel in committing the most foul sins ever written about! Wow, I just don't understand why more of the 99% can't see this blatant sanctimonious hypocrisy and just decide once and for all to stop living this way and STOP FUNDING THE ULTRA-RICH LIFESTYLE FOR OTHERS!

I have spent 14 years in the US and only got green card this year (yeah, this is how long it may take the "legal" way). I went to two graduate schools and earned two advanced degrees from US colleges, yet I have never made more than 19K a year - and that was my graduate stipend. Never been arrested, dammit! :) Apparently this is how much it's all valued here! I was once a young, impressionable kid, but over the years of neglect and abuse became as cynical as Emperor Palpatine. Remember, there's no health care here - I can't call health market health care. This realization (and the fact that I am now approaching 40) makes me think it's time for another quantum leap - to get out of here and find a better place.

I have no intent to share the UGLIEST collective karma the US system has earned - I do not owe them anything. I am not a pussy, Mr. Icelander. I simply wasn't born here, so I lack that irrationally emotional part called patriotism.

Those countries are full of corruption and with people who are not known for their intelligence and work ethics. You would be better off living in this dying country and coping with it than setting your foot to those inferior countries.
