There will be no mass exodus to Europe from America. If you don't like American life, you won't like European life either. Taxes are higher. There are more regulations. In most cases you have fewer rights. Immigration is completely out of control. It's much more heavily populated. Example: The UK has close to 65 million people. Washington State is about the same size and has 7 million. Unemployment is (officially) higher. (Yeah, I know there is the official rate then there is the real rate, but it's the same for Europe.)
Plus, you have a big disadvantage in being American. Amy middle-eastern or African that can manage to get his sorry butt onto European soil can become a refugee and get on the dole, but not you. In order to legally immigrate, you will be put through a ringer that the "refugees" do not need to go through. You will be specifically restricted from public assistance when you first arrive. And you will face considerable prejudice just because of who you are.
Not really such a hot idea. But it is a great place to visit.
