Just wanted to say thanks and that I agree with you but don't burn your passport. I've lived abroad for the past 2 years and know what its like when
you tell anyone you're from the US. You get that look and while I've never had any problems, I do always ask every person I meet what they think of
Suffice it to say they're not all big fans. When I say "they" I mean, the rest of the world. I know as much as agree that the entire government has
to be rinsed of the #, rebuilt, from the ground up and have MUCH shorter term limits on a presidency! At least for a few rounds, after that, when the
system begins to take hold, increase by miniscule amounts over time.
Most of the people I talk to from the States just get pissed and start running the old stars and stripes bs that never really held any water to begin
with IMHO all the time missing the fact that the rest of the planet finds this diatribe played out and laughable at this point.
Whether or not you ever change your mind and want to return home, you'll be glad you didn't burn anything. I know I miss the mountains and all the
hiking, fishing and camping I used to do but, living in Thailand has its benefits too.
I've done the, "Me?? Ha ha... I'm from Canada" thing as well and it always seems to go over quicker and with less pressure it seems... No
statistics on that just a strong feeling I always get.
Good luck fellow traveler!
