I'm right behind you, brother.
After hearing about these so-called straight edge kids who go around carving people up just for smoking a cigarette, I'm thinking maybe the netherlands.
Holland has beautiful women...

Europe is fast changing, sorry to be the one to tell you. Radical Muslim immigrants have created ghettos in most of the major cities, increasing crime rates. The governments lean toward socialism. Unemployment is often higher than America. It's an aging population. There are lots of problems.

There are many countries better to live in than America.
The only problem is, they may not be interested in taking you, because you are American.
Try to apply for citizenship to an Embassy of your favourite European country, and be prepared to be very disappointed.
While any one can get into America, other countries are far more selective on who they will accept as a legal immigrant..

I'd guess his "political leanings" are something like "Surrender at the first gunshot". He'll do well in France.

This country is shattered. It started upon its conception and the cracks have been growing throughout America's windshield like cobwebs in every direction.
It is a country which claimed to be founded on freedom, but it stomped out the essence of freedom when it enslaved the black man, slaughtered the red man, and kept the white woman at home, both jobless and without voting powers.
So America was doomed from the start with such a foundation.
As a citizen of this country I feel it is my duty to leave here with a respect for the nation that raised me and with a sense of peace.
It will be a couple of years before I leave America, but when I do it will be to spend the majority of my life in Europe. I will have completed my degree in Romance Languages at the University of Georgia.
As a guitar player , singer, songwriter, I long for the days when I travel through Europe playing and singing with other musicians.
I will be among the few American songwriters to travel to the regions of Spain and France where the music of the Gypsy Kings was inspired(and actually originates) and to actually jam with the musicians of the areas.
In the meantime I wonder what culturally minded ATSers feel with respect to America.
Are there other Americans like me who love this place but cannot stand to see what has become of it and are getting ready to leave? Or have already left?
Are the Europeans even interested in America, I mean in more than McDonald's and rock music? What does America offer Europe or the rest of the world these days? (though I do like McDonald's and rock music)
What countries do you Americans want to visit or even live in one day?
Where do you people of the ATS want to go , if you could go anywhere tomorrow? Where do you dream of spending your lives if it is not where you are now?
it a VERY GOOD idea if you really want to eat fresh NON gen-mod, non poison food, and drink CLEAN non poisoned water.........even Mexico has better nutritionally packed produce available.....
