    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?

    Canada is great choice. They have great economy and world reputation, free healthcare and smarter politicians making bill appropriate for current time.

    I love the Philippines and if I had the money to never have to work again, I would move there in a heartbeat. I spent two years there on an LDS mission and learned to speak Tagalog.

    Canada is beautiful.
    I also wouldn't mind exploring my Irish heritage.

    The cost of living would certainly be a factor. I'm assuming it would be cheaper to live in the Philippines than Canada.

    Hmm... this is a veyr good question actually.

    Especially in this very rapid moving and exploding world today this is a very good question.

    1 place that I have my eye on is New Zealand.

    Half of South Africa is there already... and Australia... how sad.

    New Zealand looks wonderful my Uncle loves it there - he couldn't stand it here any more either.

    New Zealand looks so wonderful...

    :)

    Any New Zealand guys / sheep here? :D

    Whats it like there? :D:D:D

    Are you tired of us refugees invading your country ek se?

    xD

    Lol... we will share our Biltong with you! :D

    ... and we are the better rugby players after all! ... maybe you could learn something from the world champions?

    xD

    Don't shoot don't shoot! :D:D:D:D

    "L" is for love ek se!

    xD

    (NOT) :D

    I've been all over the world while in the Navy and through vacations. I am constantly looking for a better place to live. But whenever I sit down and think about it objectively, I always end up with the same conclusion: the US is the worst place to live...except for everywhere else. Although Sweden or Norway wouldn't be bad.

    I'd never leave the USA. Unless of course some country decided I should have been king all along.

    I LOVED those days of beating the poops out of each other on the field!

    :-D

    I miss those days... :'-(

    I could never get enough of SMASHING some guy into the next millennium and being some kind of little savage!

    :-D

    Yes... we are quiet the gentle weasels... :)

    Some people see how kind I am and a lot of people think I am really sweet... but I miss those days of hammering each other like little crazies ... sigh those days are gone.

    :(

    Aww man those days are sadly gone...

    My good old friends and I... we were all crazy running around having a blast - it felt like we were in Sparta. :D:D:D

    xD

    [​IMG]

    :-D

    hehehe! :D

    Yeah... sigh... and then after all the cussing... savagery... madness... Spartan insanity... :D hitting each other to see who is better than who!... xD and monkey business on the field we become this when we go off the field: :D

    [​IMG]

    Hey ... if you are like me... I really feel for you... I miss them like crazy too. :)

    lol aren't we crazy? :D

    I would love to move to New Zealand... but I know I would miss my home like there was no tomorrow. :)

    Only if the black people here start burning and killing all the white people in a fight of some kind of crazy psychotic rage then yes I will be forced to flee the country in fear of my life but if it doesn't I am so going to stay. :)

    I love ya SA. ;)

    Sorry every inch of my being is now "forcing" me to put this legendary image to rub it in your faces of how awesome my little country is!

    xD

    We are the best I am sorry to say! ;)

    You are so right about that!

    xD

    I was talking about the crazy black people here that are full of hate and anger - I am not a racist - I hate it like nothing on earth...

    And hell yes! :D

    You are the toughest of us all. :D

    hands down!

    xD

    Yeah I should play rugby again... :)

    Hmmmmm... there has got to be some kind of club around here? :D

    There must be.

    Ugh but work and studies... there is just no or hardly any time these days!

    :/

    I am holiday at the moment so for now I have got plenty of time but soon that will change again lol ek se. :)

    Better than no time at all though right? :D

    xD

    [​IMG]

    Doin time!

    xD

    Yeah - it is a serious worry here that everyone is gonna go crazy - we see it on the news every day.

    If there was any place I would eve move to it would be new Zealand. :)

    But... I know I would miss home like there is no tomorrow... I would never ever... despite all the crime and extreme pain here... I don't really want to leave... even if they want to kill us all... lol. :)

    It is a love hate relationship!

    xD
