Simple answer is I can't afford it.
If things go totally TU I'd probably head into the wilderness of the Olympic National Forests and completely disappear.
Why not leave Canada?
If Canada breaks, or goes into the crapper, maybe it'll be time to check out Iceland......
This question has been brought up in my personal conversations a number of times over the years. Especially after hearing yet another questionable practice that the US government has committed, or an up-to-date listing of; unemployment, standard of education in comparison to other first world countries, etc.
I live in Canada, so I am not directly exposed to what may or may not be reality within our southern relatives, but if what the statistical evaluation of numerous studies says is in fact true, then why not leave America?
I'm not suggesting to leave, nor suggesting that any other country in particular doesn't share similar issues or is at all better. Although, if we look at some of the studies regarding the aforementioned variables, America is - in some cases - far from the top compared to other first world countries.
From viewing the number of topics within this board we tend to see staggering numbers of American-Government based conspiracies in which directly lie to or mislead their own citizens into an otherwise obvious scare tactic or veil from transparency for an undisclosed reason. These issues aren't new to America either.
Although - to a degree - speculative, and from a completely personal opinion, it would very well appear that the fabric of America is being disintegrated by numerous factors. I see from a number of posts and topics here that many of you agree with that observation.
So my question is, for those that also feel this way, why not leave America?
For those who do not feel this why, what is your reason for staying?edit on 17/11/13 by Ghost147 because: (no reason given)
