Realization #1 - Corruption is far worse outside the USA
Realization #2 - Many cultures do not practice long-term preparedness thinking
Realization #3 - Don't be the foreigner
Realization #4 - You cannot escape the global police state
Realization #5 - You are far safer to hunker down than try to go mobile

Well, I’ve got the longboat, but I need a fjord. I’ve sometimes thought of finding a lonely wilderness place on the coast in Northern Canada for the summers and sail south to pillage during the winter ;^)
3. Not at this time
I can’t think of a single place in this world I would want to live other than right here. I hope I never have to pick up and leave.
Sounds like you already have a good spot .
America’s history began with Central Asians and Europeans who walked away from Central Asia and Europe.
I say we make the traitors leave...like we did after the Revolutionary war. Sent the Torries and red coats packing. Kicked them clean out. Worked then—will work now.
Texas is starting to look like a nice place to move to. Hope they don’t put up roadblocks to stop those in California fom leaving-reverse of dust bowl days.
California is considering an exit tax for people who move out of the state
The thinking is that these people authorised the state to take on expenses (schools, roads, social structures) and now are not staying there to pay for them.
Texas is forecasted to swing liberal by 2016. All the Mexicans and all the people fleeing states like California.
and we can’t wait for him to leave. Sounds like a consensus. GTFO Doc.
If it gets too bad, Texas will secede. Go to Texas.
I started international travel in 1999, and by 2002, I was living half of my time in central Europe. I left the USSA for good in Jan. 05, back to Slovakia, where I had a great life.
In Jan 2009, I moved to the Philippines, where I have a happy life on a beach, with my new family, and for less then $1000 per month.
There is no way that I would consider going back to the USSA, much less take my family there.
With over 50 percent of Americans choosing a Marxist/Leninist POTUS, the media and educational systems in a full out assault on traditional American values, it tells me that the country that I loved is finished.
The fact that he got re-elected says it all.
Life there will get much worse, before or if it gets better.
By the way, central and south America are booming with new Americans fleeing the Obamination.

Along with the British Empire (or what little is left of it!) and most of Europe.
NOT Australia. Minimum wage is $20. They outlawed many guns in the 90s. Socialist state. Everything thing is REAL expensive. Much worse than the US. Not sure about NZ
I dont know any other way to express this but I will try.
This is my country.
I was born and raised here.
Ancestors of mine fought in the Revolutionary War to ensure the liberties we all enjoy today.
Later, other ancestors of mine fought on both sides of the Civil War and the Union was preserved as a result.
My grandfather fought in WWII and his son fought in Vietnam to stop facism and communism.
I owe my freedom to God and to those generations before me who fought, bled and died to preserve it for me.
Therefore I cannot and will not with a clear conscience simply leave my child to suffer a bleak socialistic future when I have now at this time and place, the opportunity and means to prevent it.
I will not leave.
I will do what I must do in order to preserve the Republic that generations of our forefathers fought, bled and died for over the past 200+ years.
If that makes me a criminal in the eyes of the government, so be it.
I will fight if necessary.
Unlawful force used against me and mine will be met with deadly force.
If someone dies as a result of my use of necessary deadly force, it will be justified and my conscience will be clear.
I’ve lived a good life and have no complaints.
If I die preserving freedom and liberty in this country, then that is God’s will and I accept it.
I’d rather be remembered by my future grandchildren as a patriot who fought and died to preserve our country and its freedoms for us all, than have to explain to them why I failed to take any action at all.
I don’t know any other way to express this.
I’m thankful that our forefathers got out of Europe because it was a lost cause. Of course this isn’t 200 years ago.
If a real SHTF scenario happens, that money in your mattress won't help much ...in the bank even less.
Yes, Australia. The standard of education is much higher in Australia than in the US. Sydney, 7 mil + people is one of the most ethically diverse places on the planet has one of the lowest crime rates in the world.
