If I were in America, I would just stay. If things fail completely, eventually things would get back to normal, just like they did after the Civil War and Great Depression. Things may get tough for a while and America may not be the tog dog on the block anymore, but that'd be good for the country. Americans could start focusing on America again, as other countries would have to start taking care of themselves, and it would be good for Americans to get a reality shock. It would put their priorities straight and make them realize they have to work for stuff instead of the government just handing them stuff.

I'd stay put tight here. First of all, if the US collapses then expect a domino effect to cascade across the globe. You saw a preview of that with the 2008 financial crisis. No place would be spared and the same problems would be experienced globally.
I look at this way - IF the US failed, that simply means that the government fails and the currency fails. So what!? That's probably a good thing. It would be like having the shackles removed once and for all. We would finally be free again! Then I could begin to live the kind of life that I want for my family and myself - free from government intervention and harassment. And as far as the "Chaos and anarchy" that people fear? Yeah, there woudl be some but I'm prepared and so are thousands of others. I'd actually expect to see more of a post 9/11 type of environment where people are working together and helping one another out. In short, a much better world!

Oh, there are Americans who are entirely grounded in reality and who understand very well. I'm one of them, and I dare say that a good 80 million or so other Americans understand the situation perfectly well.
Nobody is going anywhere.
So we're left with the two options: Welcome Change or Fight Change. And perhaps a third option... Welcome Change and then Work to Destroy It from the Inside.

The Canadian Mountains are beautiful and majestic. They are not to be trifled with. If you do choose to abandon your home for Canada, I would suggest you bring warm clothes extra survival gear and bear spray.
Thanks for reading.
