I read your thread when you first started it and I have to say that I found it interesting. I would like to add my insight on this subject.
I personally find it very unamerican for people to up and run from their country over fear of the unknowns. I call it unknowns because we really do
not know what is going to happen from day to day. Sure we can learn from history and it does repeat itself,
But to just up and leave what my ancestors fought for, what they believed in, and tried their best to make this a country to where they are proud to
have their children grow up, enjoy life, reap the rewards of what they fought for.
This is very unpatriotic in my opinion and I am here till the last remains of what is and could be. I will deal with it the best I can and try to make
this the best place possible for my childrens future.
The only possible way I would leave, is if the land is totally inhabitable, nuclear or whatever.
To me when someone just ups and leaves their problems, this is a sign of something more within that person.
It is cool to exercise "options", but to just leave ones country because of fear is just outright wrong.
(my opinion of course)
