    Where to go?

    (For obvious reasons)

    I have international marketable skills, the ability to pull up and move on short notice and a passport.

    Any ideas?

    Invade and take over some small Pacific Island or butthole country and appoint yourself dictator for life.

    Switzerland. They have great gun laws - everyone must own a firearm!

    Nowhere really. America was the last beacon of hope in the world.
    The last bastion of freedom.
    Now, it's gone. Government is out of control.

    Their carry law sucks unless you are a member of THE militia, and then only your ussued weapon. May issue, with lots of hurdles.

    Bingo.

    If we have it so bad here, the answer would be obvious, wouldn't it? It seems to be obvious for the millions who incur great expense to get here.

    I think a good many people who fled communist/socialist governments stand in shock and disbelief at the changing ideology happening now in this country.

    Have you asked them? Maybe, having experienced the real thing, they'd laugh at what you consider communism/socialism.

    They don't laugh, they get pretty steamed. My MIL was born and raised in Soviet Armenia, I've heard her set more than one person straight.

    We do laugh about some aspects of that, yes. The way Americans imagine Communism can be very naive at times, just like the way Russians imagine Capitalism.

    But mostly we just shake our head in disbelief. This crap? Here, in America?

    That is the saddest part of it all....we do NOT have anywhere else to run away to.

    The left had TONS of places to go where the govt ran everything and nobody was allowed to own guns and other overbearing left leaning nonsense is the order of the day.

    Us? the more right leaning or libertarian types? Forget it. America was the last bastion for us.

    Now the leftists have gone and screwed THAT up.

    If you ask me...THIS is the saddest part of it all - there is nowhere else for us to go.

    That is nearly as laughable as the suggestion of Switzerland.

    Yeah...lets protest our country turning socialist by moving to a country where the govt. literally runs everything. And only because of some obscure law about militia members keeping a gun in their home for a number of years.

    LOL

    There is a simple solution:

    Get really rich. Not just sort-of rich, that's actually the worst of both worlds. We're talking at least Romney rich.

    Then the rules don't apply to you, no matter where you go. You can dictate the ground rules wherever you go.

    It's not about where to go, it's about how much money you have while you're there.

    Nope, not nearly enough.

    Show up in a country with a quarter of a billion dollars, there's nothing you can't do. Go there with a few million and they'll treat you OK, but all the rules still apply.

    It isn't that simple.

    1 - Most countries have strict immigration laws that are difficult to meet.

    2. - Even with marketable skills you usually have to have a job in the country before you go there. And, the company needs to show they couldn't find a person in country to do the job.

    3. - US citizens are taxed on world income.

    4. - Most other countries suck already and will probably get suckier.
