Iam that Midget!!!!


I truly wish you and your bride every happiness. Besides you're demonstrably more fastidious if the ava is any indication.
Being creatures of habit, I feel as we humans come of age and also gain some perception-- it becomes rapidly more difficult to move from pure logistics. Not meaning to sound bitter; but I've been made and kept too broke to go anywhere safe for long enough to know there's logically nowhere to go they can't get to you. sigh

I dont know anything about it but have heard quite a few people have retired and want to retire in Costa Rica.





Been looking over alternative countries for a few years. There is a big commercial effort catering to US ex-pats with destinations like Belize, Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Uruguay, etc. From everything I've seen, seems like Uruguay may be one of the best places. It's also on the east coast of South America so it should remain relatively cleaner for a longer period from Fukishima.

I just met some ex-pats that came back to the US after living in Costa Rica for a while. The life they describe down there does not sound very enticing. They had trouble with a massively dirty bank trying to steal their money, being overcharged by the locals, government greed, etc.



I agree and have had people leave their home in Costa Rica for a short vacation only to return to a house that has been stripped all the way down to the electrical outlets....Toilets, sinks and everything gone ..!

To the Op: If you want to leave then you need a job in the host country. Most places overseas are not places you want to go and run out of money.

Many have found jobs teaching English or in something they have a skill that is marketable.. if you do not have marketable skills don't go. You darn sure do not want to go to Asia if you do not have a job or income...trust me on that.... unless you can marry a local who wants to support you..... you are better off in the states..

You can pick a country and then look for an ex-pat forum dealing with what the local ex-pats have to say.. I have sold everything and have moved overseas not because of a Nazi America but because our living conditions and cost are very satisfactory to us. I am retired and we were just fine in the states. but to us we have a better quality of life in many ways at our small farm in the North of Thailand. Simple folks have simple ways and my only vice is I play golf...almost everyday...usually with a bunch of guys from the EU or other places who have chosen to be ex-pats for various reasons...

Again Find a job.. where ever the job is will be your new home. Many places in the Mid-East pay very well and I do know a few ex-pats who work there for gobs of money for a few years (ten seems to be a good number) and retire in Asia.. I spent a year in Saudi flying all over the country and even flying out of country to Germany, Switzerland, Egypt, Greece and a few other places.. I would not have made it a year if not for an English flight attendant girlfriend who made life livable for me.. But I have always liked women and never wanted to live without one. Never plan on going back to the M.E. either.

Having flown for the military and a major airline I have been to many international destinations and we could pretty much live anyplace we wanted to but we chose Asia..... until it is not fun and then we will go someplace else that will have us.. Big deal to me is taxes; property taxes in a new country...if they have them then I do not want to live there..period... TMI..... find a job overseas and there will usually be special deals for you to get there and live... end of story, happy ending, etc etc !

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.


Just go online to interenational forums I am sure most of the planet would be happy to trade places with you. It will also give them a good laugh at how completely clueless you are about the rest of the planet.

Lol. I lived to years in the UK myself. Was married to a national. Sorry. You wouldn't do well in the UK at all, especially if you think the U.S. is Nazi Germany. They had cameras everywhere. In places I never even thought possible or useful to stick a camera. Taxes are much higher, and there are certain things you could not get away with saying publically, like complaining about the number of "Arabs" wandering the streets.

And if you do not possess or understand a very dry sense of humor, or have no appreciation of absurdity, you will not do well there at all. Even with a Master's Degree.

Try Greece you can pick up a 1 bed place for $ 7000 the economy is that bad but no work for you
Turkey is cheap too you do not give a budget for all this but learning the local lingo is a must

Portugal /Hungry if You have the money to buy BUT BUT Germany is not that easy going do you think they hang washing out when they want the neo-nazi's would love to hear you talk ?

every country in the E.U has a problem with immigration if you are a cheapskate like me i would recommend Poland or Romania I HEAR THEY HAVE ALL LEFT .

PLENTY OF EMPTY homes just go on holiday and stay sell the return ticket what is the worst they can do deport you

try Uruguay or Ecuador

life is relatively cheap
resident visa are easy (in uruguay you can get a passport in 6 month or a year)
political people are less corrupted by the banksters and the corporate world (google uruguay president)
not most of the public budget is spent on army, war, police and weapons

otherwise i'd say india for real cheap, real cultural, real laid back & real fun but resident visa are next to impossible unless you marry a local

Maybe now you have some kind of inkling as to what any Muslim members or lurkers might have felt reading your obvious feeling that you should be entitled to British Citizenship over them.

It's interesting to me that none of my peers, none of my co-workers, none of my family and no one I know feels this way.

The good thing is though living in America you can leave whenever you want.
Best of luck.

There was another thread on here asking the same thing about a year or so ago.

I'll say the same thing what I said then:

Where you move to should depend upon why you want to move.

If it's because your political beliefs do not match where you live now, then you need to find the place that matches what you believe in.

If it's the weather, and you're here in the US. Consider the fact that you can experience just about any kind of climate that exists elsewhere in the world here in the US.

If it's better employment, you should of course make sure you have secured that employment in another country first.

Then, and most important: Try Before You Buy.

In other words, VISIT the country, and I don't mean for just a couple of days. Try to get a student or work visa and stay for a few months. You'll either fall in love with the place and confirm your desire to move there. Or you might come to loath the place. Better to find out before you burn any bridges behind you.

If I was asked where I'd want to live other than the US, I'd have to say I'd like to go back to Naples, Italy. I lived there for 4 years as a teen and fell in love with the place.

Of course, that was when I was a teenager, and not a adult that would need to work and be responsible.

Still, I loved the people, the history, the food. But I don't love them enough to change my citizenship. I'd rather visit off and on.

Of course, you could do what John F. Kennedy said: "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

Maybe instead of running away, you should try to be proactive in helping make changes to make this a better place.

Unless of course it's because of the food and wine. While I said I wouldn't give up my citizenship and move to Italy, I'd be darn tempted from what I remember!

I once read somewhere that 80% of Americans don't have an international passport, and never leave the US...even for a holiday.

If I was a US citizen I would be one of the 80%, the place is HUGE...

If you don't like where you're living, consult a map of the US and get driving.

I respectfully invite you to South Carolina. I think it is the most beautiful place in the universe (except when Obama is trying to nuke us! [but he didn't succeed!!!]) We're too smart for him. But we do have earthquakes, now.

No really, I'm serious. We have everything in SC. Skiing in the mountains, surfing in the oceans. Lots of small towns with quirky festivals every week. Several large lakes for boating, fishing and water skiing. We have a lowering unemployment rate with new industries starting every week. Most of them come from the north to get away from high taxes and oppressive unions. We have an excellent higher education with Clemson and the University of SC, as well as many community colleges.

On the downside, we do have Lindsey Graham.

You're damn right I'm more entitled than some backwards Arab from God knows where. My family was in the British military and helped defend the UK during ww2. But you continue with your politically correct garbage while turning your back on the people that helped make sure you're not speaking German... wouldn't want to be racist.

I was actually looking into South Carolina, it's definitely up there in my "just get in the car and drive" list.

The so-called American dream is a great one but the American reality is that you have to extend freedom to people who want to end yours. Contemptible bastards. That is why the dream is gone. They deliberately twist freedom into an ugly thing in order to force you to hate it.

Are we better off than Nazi Germany? Obviously, we are. But ask yourself this. What if Hitler had not been as brutal? What if he hadn't started a world war? What if he had been smarter and created a soft dictatorship where you couldn't really put your finger on exactly what they were doing to oppress people that was so wrong? It is likely that government would still be running Germany to this day.

Wherever you think of settling you should first try backpacking through the country first. Take a month or two and explore. I try to take at least a month each year to explore new countries and I have more than a few places I am thinking of relocating to. Seeing as most are near the water in my case I will most likely just buy a sailboat and spend time wherever I feel and if I don't like it simply pick up anchor and move. Income is important no matter where you go and in my case running dive tours should be the ticket with a large enough boat.

One thing I found when traveling was it was the places I didn't think I would care much for that were the most interesting. The disposition of the populace usually made the difference.

Good luck in your search.

At one time Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and many areas affected (destabilized, destroyed) by the Western war on terror had flourishing societies, with highly educated people. Seems you are the backward one as they have skills desired by Britain and you don't. In what way does it make sense to ride your ancestors coat tails when you have nothing to offer vs an Iraqi with a medical degree that's applicable now? And exactly how deserving are you of asylum when you're running away from politeness vs someone running away from Al-Qaeda or the Taliban?

Oink.
