I'm getting rather sick of the United States for many different reasons (rampant consumerism, near complete complacency in the face of erosion of the Bill of Rights, a health care system that will likely collapse of its own weight, and near complete intolerance of any difference of opinion, etc.). So that's gotten me thinking about moving out of the country. Attractive places would be Canada (very similar to US, close to US, mostly English speaking), Tahiti (beautiful and laid back) and the Philippines (again tropical and a lot of English speakers). But I'm not terribly serious about this moving idea, yet, so I've not really researched any of them fully and have questions about each. I am curious though. Has anyone else considered moving, and if so to where and what have you done to research the place you would move?
