Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Poland, France, Spain, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, Ireland and even the UK have better solutions to most things. They all have a free national health service which covers everyone from cradle to grave for a start.
I plan on moving to either The Netherlands or Switzerland

Downside? Hard to get let in unless you're a professional of some sorts. If you work in banking or pharmaceuticals it's pretty easy though. As for cost...yeah, it's more expensive, but salaries are better too in a lot of cases. A maid in Switzerland makes around 3 times as much in Switzerland than she would make in Germany/France. Totally makes up for the cost of living. I earned $25/hr working as a bicycle messenger, lol...and $30/hr serving drinks at some random wedding when I still was at college over there.edit on 25-11-2010 by MrXYZ because: (no reason given)

You guys don’t know how lucky you are. Is there any wonder other countries detest you when you make comments such as this.
My advice, go and actually travel around the world, not the fake resorts but walk among the people... Then lets here you say you think you have it bad where you are.

Maybe having it better than most is not good enough for the people of the land of the free. We are slowly loosing our rights. Your comment is typical of someone that is repeating what others have said for hundreds of years..
