Im in and out of the country all the time....if civil war breaks out I’ll stay home and join the fight.
My take has been that if America collapses, the rest of the world will too. In fact, the rest of the world may do it first. This means that being an ex-patriot in places like Thailand could be physically dangerous.
So, in 2008 (just before the election) I bought a small farm in central Kentucky. It’s an entire finger of a plateau about 80 feet above a beautiful valley. I moved there from my 45 year home of Seattle in late summer of 2011.
I confess that the reason I can stay sane about what has been happening in the world and, specifically, US politics and economy, is that I am no longer dependant on the infrastructure as I was in Seattle.
Bottom line: For me the answer was to stay within the US and move to a commonwealth.
You think you can escape the collapse of America?
I doubt it. I’ll be in my front room, shooting intruders until done.
More than likely the cemetery.
Since I guess I’ll die here, then I suppose Heaven.
I’ll be sitting in my living room, armed, and just waiting for the idiot urban dwellers who don’t have 2 days worth of food set aside coming to take what they need.
Horrible thought, but when you have millions of people dependent on others for every basic need in life and have those lifelines crumble its going to be hell on earth for a while here.
I frankly don’t know... I suppose I’ll be doing my best defending my family, fending off intruders and ultimately dying in the process. The dark side will be taking out houses with armed drones, so I just hope it’s quick when my time comes.
I learned many years ago to move toward the sounds of the battle. Put down democrats, take what they have as spoils of war and work to reestablish the Constitution.
The guy who was the real-life Crocodile Dundee (his name was not Dundee) was killed in a shootout with Australian police who were there to confiscate his unregistered firearms.
Have you seen Detroit or Camden, New Jersey lately?
Nowhere. I can’t imagine anything more entertaining than watching American liberals trying to figure out what to do in a real crisis.
This is interesting so here’s my take:
Being a quarter Swiss, they are cold, unfriendly and snobby...
Central American countries are still banana republics with a veneer...
In Australia, you celebrate Christmas in cut-offs...
I’m voting for an island nation of conservative thinkers...
Or secession...why give the bastards this nation our forefathers fought so hard for....
I’ll hunker-in and after things “die down” I’ll go hunting. This is my country and I took an oath. I may not last long but I’ll go with a clean conscience.
Besides, I don’t think any other country could or would be able to take any but the most well-heeled refugees.
Most of the rest of the world will blame America for the situation, and you don’t ever want to be “the foreigner” when SHTF.
“WHERE COULD I GO, BUT TO THE LORD!”
The Lord will keep us in times of trouble.
1 Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
he is my God, and I trust him.
3 For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from deadly disease.
4 He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
5 Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor the arrow that flies in the day.
6 Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
7 Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around you,
these evils will not touch you.
8 Just open your eyes,
and see how the wicked are punished.
9 If you make the Lord your refuge,
if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
so you wont even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
14 The Lord says, I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.
New Zealand or Australia. But really ... if things go-to-hell-in-a-handbasket in The States, there will be global repercussions.
To my grave fighting.
Good question bump
It will be Molon Labe time.
Our local Wal-Mart and quickly to grab the last of the Sweet Baby Ray's and A-1 Sauce...
Australia all the way!
Kangaroo meat is TASTY! Mmmmm! And great wines!
