You got me. I won’t beg, but if you’d care to tell me where you’re talking about I will make a personal oath to you right now that I will never publish, broadcast, or post the name of this place. (But I might see you at the pizza place!)
Thanks for your post.
Costa Rica or Panama.
They openly embrace Americans coming to live and work and will grant practically immediate visas.
I understand your concern about your kids. My grandfather helped me set up my Irish passport back in the day & frankly, at the time, I did it more for him than myself. But, by doing that, I can now pass on my Irish citizenship to them. What they do is up to them....at least they can get out of here if needs be. I’ll be deep in flyover country in several years & deal with what comes.
When I started reading this thread I knew you’d jump in.
BTW, I hated “The Cloud Dwellers”.
There are reportedly 3 million U.S. ex-pats there.
The problem is that those people are busy wrecking it for everybody else and the IRS follows you everywhere you go, even if you renounce your citizenship.
Everyone’s answer will have to be different.
Look up. Pray. You can afford to make a few mistakes if God is with you; you cannot afford to make this kind of decision without taking him with you.
Some of us will be called to ride out the storm; some will be called to get our families to safe haven. Only God knows which is you and where that is for you.
In either case its not really about you as I suspect you already know. In either case you will have to be there for the folks who are counting on you.
Ok, I’ll bite. Is this some town in Alaska??
I’m in complete agreement, but rather than flee, why not stay and fight? Of course, somebody has to start the revolution, and nobody seems willing to do that.
All that has gone wrong, we have permitted. The people whom we revere as the Founding Fathers, did not flee or shrink from fighting.
That’s why we had the nation we now haven’t the guts to defend and preserve.
Hiya, Batsy — LTNT!

The U.S. has a lot of natural resources. Russia or China will own us once that culture is in charge. I hate to say it but we’d probably be better off if Russia was to take over. Having served in the military during the Cold War I can’t believe I’m thinking this way.
No flames, please. I can’t help the way I think.
That's IT! In short, any decent American/Canadian will qualify. Couple of hundred in attorney's fees, I've no doubt.
And, unlike the famed Panamanian pensionado programme, with this visa, one is still on the citizenship track. Have to speak Spanish well and know Panamanian history. Not onerous at all...well, except that SAJ is a poor linguist, but I'm working on it, working on it.
Does it count if the new immigrant happens to own the panamanian company? In other words, you establish your own business?
I’ll stick it out here. If it hits the fan, I’ll go back to the woods in a county with 20,000 people and away from the priority areas for the feds.
It’s a good place to consider.
If Texas doesn’t seceed, it won’t be Texas much longer.
Could have swore you were quite a cunning linguist!
Dang, I don’t speak a lick of Spanish.
Started doing books for small businesses recently. Have a couple of clients. But not a lot of work, pretty much can do it in my sleep.
New Zealand is notorious for electing libtards to run the govt.
Remember the US Navy ship that was challenged to reveal if it carried nukes before entering the harbor? We refused to confirm or deny and got kicked out and the SEATO treaty was dissolved as a result.
I know because my hubs was on that ship...just sayin’.
I’m Arkansas born and raised but have lived out of state for 30 years. I’m considering Harrison, Arkansas. It’s got a lot of what I’m looking for. And it doesn’t have a lot of what I’m NOT looking for, if you get my meaning.
