Skip to comments.IS ANYONE CONSIDERING BAILING OUT OF THIS PLACE AND GOING TO COSTA RICA OR PANAMA?

I have seriously been thinking of leaving the country. My hope is pretty much gone that we can turn any of this around. Who would I be staying for....to support the people who ride in the cart and don't contribute and hate this country? I'm too old for all this and if the immigration bill goes through, I totally believe all is lost. How can we pay VAT, Tax and Trade, Healthcare, Local sales taxes, income taxes, etc., etc. and survive? So overused today, but it's "non-sustainable"
Don’t give up hope...yet. We have to fight to recover as much as we can.
Nope. I was born here and I’ll die here.
last i heard the immigration bill has no chance of passage this year. Maybe next though
Come back with an army of expats when the SHTF.
Yup. It’s not a definite, but we’ve started looking.
I won’t take advantage of my dual citizenship until it is really the last option.
So far, this is, at least for now, the best place in the world; of course, there are a lot of pukes pushing to make that change.
Costa Rica and Panama, no, but Italy has crossed my mind.
Yes, the thought has crossed my mind and the raids on Christian Militia with the help of MUSLIMS has decided it.
The question now is where to go.
Hell, I even considered Russia. How crazy is that?
Isn’t Costa Rica an ironical choice, considering that the Federal Government apparatus practically owns and runs the place?
No we’re not going to leave. My ancestors fought the hordes of European settlers to no avail. Do you think I’m going to pull up stakes and run from these Commies, now?
Stake down your sash with your lance and do not retreat.
Sorry Charlie, but it makes no difference where you go...the IRS will hound you worldwide. Even renouncing your citizenship US laws obligate you for taxes for many years thereafter.
I can’t. I don’t have any money and Obama will see to it that I stay that way.
Italy is probably among the most Socialist countries in Europe.
An odd choice, there. Is it for cultural reasons?
I own a house in Boquete, Panama and have seriously considered moving there.
Italy sounds nice.
We are mortgage free, built here over 20yrs ago far far away from people in the rural life untill the good Lord takes us home or comes back which ever happens first.
We’re staying to fight.
Remember the Alamo
Remember the River Raisin.
Border to border it belongs to us. Our ancestors paid for it in blood.
A buddy of mine went to Costa Rica for the first time earlier this month on vacation and loved it. Said there are a lot of Americans down there, and the locals are very friendly. Convinced me to go check it out for myself.
But to live permanently? Doubt it.
we must fight for this country...I’m glad George Washington didn’t give up when all seemed losted.
Why have you given up hope? We won elections in NJ, VA, and MA against all odds. Something like 40 states have filed suit on this healthcare crap. Americans are fired up and committed to taking back power in November.
Don’t let the psychological warfare depress and discourage you.
Do not consider Russia. It is still a Communist state.
America is all we have, and we have to fight for it or the entire world goes down the toilet.
Leave Texas? Hell no!
Relax, things are going to turn around, and are already beginning to do so at least in the minds and hearts of the people.
Most of the folks who voted for Obama in 08 aren’t brainwashed lefties at all and thought that he would be behaving in a more pragmatic fashion. They did not expect all this socialism, and the Republican candidate assured them they had nothing to worry about.
This isn’t over in the least. People, non-political people, even some democrats are very skeptical of all of this.
And if it was, you wouldn’t want to be in central America anyhow- the US federal government has always had a lot of influence there. If you must move, maybe go to a country committed to growth like India where they speak English.
Unless you can live off “investments” and “managing a company”, you can not work in Costa Rica under new laws passed in 2007 to keep out the hordes of hippie Americans and Europeans.
Make them leave.
The poor bastards have us surrounded.
Our money is going Australian. Don’t know if we physically bail. Maybe Chile.
I’m still pissed off and hopeful, but if the Communists ram thru “amnesty,” I will consider moving elsewhere.
You see, the USA is becoming a maze of red tape, regulation, and now.... Communism.
I don’t want to live my life as a puppet, working like a dog to pay for a bunch of Moslems and Communists and Mexicans to live it up.
sure, a lot of us are scared and sick and tired of caring the burden, but I couldn't totally desert my children...
your community...your church...your friends...your neighbors need you.....and your country needs you...
Just bought a perfect little cottage in El Pino, Honduras. It’s 15 minutes from the El Porvenir pristine beach and 15 minutes from the breathtaking Pino Bonito mountain national park. It’s about a half hour from the city of La Ceiba, with its modern shopping centers and health care.
My water bill is $31 a year. My electricity is free. I have a live-in maid for $50 a month. I will pay no Honduras income taxes on income earned outside the country. I paid less for my two-bedroom home than most people pay a year in house payments. And my property taxes are under $200 a year
And on top of all that, Honduras is a free country — with none of the Marxist alphabet agencies that now dictate our every move in the US. And the new conservative government stopped the Obama-Chavez-Zelaya Marxist takeover last June.
So, yes, I do intend to relocate outside of the US. But, for my money, Honduras is a far better buy than either Panama or Costa Rica.
My hope is that Texas become a republic again and I will go there.
You can count me in. I’m definitely interested in Panama...but it seems the laws to emigrate there have recently changed. I read on their site that one has not only to draw a monthly retirement income of at least $750 (doable), but must also invest $100,000 in Panamanian real estate (not doable).
Keep in mind, FReepers an earlier post of mine: it might be better for many of us to stay within the borders of the United Socialist States, but COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR. Read my link to J. J. Luna’s “How to be invisible.” The link is to the first edition from 2000, but you can buy a more recent edition published in 2004. For the most recent information, go to Luna’s website, “howtobeinvisible.com”
Given the fact that it’s going to take a few years to implement zerodeathcare — assuming it isn’t killed by the states and by SCOTUS — I would make haste and start studying this stuff now. If you don’t need it, great. If you do need it, you’ll have things in place to become invisible.
There ya go!!! I'm also a "They've got us surrounded, the poor bastards!" type of guy. If they want this country, they're going to have to pay for it.
First, I don’t have the $$ to leave here, and I’m not leaving either the little $$ I do have behind — much less all my family and friends,
Second, Ronald Reagan was right — America is the last, best hope for freedom — there’s nowhere left to go.
Third, I am no better than the Founders — if “the price of freedom is eternal vigilance” for Thomas Jefferson 235 years ago, then it is no less so for me today.
I will stay. I will stand. I will speak. If necessary I will die. I’m not going anywhere until liberty returns to this land.
my biggest worry is about money though....how to keep the little bit we have...
Yup. I was born here and I will die here. I must add that I will die fighting them, and not on my knees.

I’m not leaving. I’ll make THEM leave first.
Do you live there full time? And how is electricity free? How about internet? Sounds incredible!
I hear the Chirqui area around Boquette is beautiful and the coffee they grow there is amongst the best in the world. Real estate prices have gone through the roof lately though. Is that true?
I think Panama may be on the radar of many Americans very soon. The populace is used to having Americans around, english is spoken fairly widely, and they have a lot of foreign money moving there.
I would not be surprised to see a medical tourism industry spring up there, as well as a retirement industry for ex pat aAmericans
Me? I’m going to day dream of a USA w/o liberals or anything else that is a threat to our conservative way of life. Reality is almost getting to be too much to suffer.
