Where I am now, I would not say that the government is not corrupt. Other then the immigration office, you would not have any government contact. Visiting the immigration office every two months gets old, unless you get married to a Philippine citizen. After that, you obtain a 13a visa, and never have to go to immigration again. In Slovakia, I never saw an immigration office, nor did I report to anyone.

Do I then gather correctly that you aren't one of those ex-pats who claim that America is going to hell in a handbasket*, that our freedoms are being eroded*, and that - if the s--t should ever hit the fan - one would be better off in some other country.

Rather, I infer that you merely find the cost of living - for retirees - in the Philippines lower.

Regards,

*) NOTE: I don't claim that our country isn't sliding towards Gomorrah - I just don't think that, in the event of a zombie apocalypse, one would likely be better off elsewhere.

No you do not gather correctly.....
I do believe that the country of my birth and spent almost 60 years in is going down the tubes.
That was not my reason for leaving at the time. I was interested in exploring other countries, and at that time I had never even heard of Barckus Obumbo.
As I see what is happening there, I can not imagine trying to return and live on my small pension, or live in the hell that is facing the population. Add to that, I now have a wife and child.
We have a very nice and simple life on our beach.
