I'm honestly considering leaving the United States and it wouldn't bother me in the least giving up my citizenship. The way I see it, I don't want to be a German living in Nazi Germany. And yes, I think it has and will continue to get to that point. I'd almost rather live in Russia.
I've tried the EU and honestly, I'm not a millionaire nor do I have a masters degree. I'm not getting into the EU. I've looked in Australia, Asia... even places that I have family. Nothing seems to be an option. Am I stuck here? It just blows my mind that as an American, I literally have no options here.
Russia is looking better by the day but I honestly have no idea how to even start the process to get over there.
I know how about you move to say North Korea, the Congo, Zimbabwe or somewhere else where there is some horrible true despot leader then try comparing America to "Nazi Germany".
I really dont think that a lot of people who life in the developed western world realize just how lucky they are.
You can buy a private island off the coast of Nicaragua for about $500,000. I can't seem to find the site, but there was a little B&B for sale that had several huts with twin beds and a big "main house". It even had a bar and a pier. Very remote, but it does everything you'd need including rain catchment and telephone service.
I'd be down with a tiny white sand island.

I really like the west coast of Mexico. Beautiful beaches, great fishing, laid back life style...
I don't think its any more violent than Houston.
I'd much rather move to the UK but it seems, after a single generation, your Government doesn't allow people to return even when they have family there... while at the same time allowing any Arab to walk across the border by asylum.

If you can secure for yourself an income online (or at least mobile) of about 1,500 - 2,000 per month, you can live like a king in Thailand or the Philippines. My wife and I were planning a move to the Chiang Mai province and still might soon.
Look up the currency exchange... it will blow your mind when you see how much 2 thousand a month can get you there. Seriously, we're talking live-in housekeepers and swimming pools. Plus, you'll be doing their economy a favor by bringing in money that doesn't suck away at their own job market. It's a win/win.
