Should I Leave America, and if I Do, Where Should I Go?
I love America, but honestly, I think it's a lost cause. I need a place to work and stay in the long run, at least until this crazy stuff blows over in a few years.
My hubby and I have been thinking the same thing. Unfortunately, we don't have that kind of money, to move to another country. If we did, we'd probably end up in Amsterdam, or Australia. I've been to Australia, it's so beautiful and the people are fantastic. Plus the koalas are adorable!
I know the feeling.. I lived in the States as a kid before 9/11 and had the best time of my life. It was wonderful. I have the opportunity to return but very hesitant to take that step as I have very fond memories and after watching how my friends from back then are still struggling, I definitely don't want to change my opinion.
You might be surprised to hear me say this, but I think you should move to U.A.E. if you can. The place is wonderful. The economy is still blooming. I prefer Abu Dhabi to Dubai but if yo're into the partying, then Dubai is it.
leaving your country because you don't like what's going on and thinking you will come back when things are better is kind of rude and cowardly. if someone left my country during rough times, i wouldn't want them back.
During a recent visit to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, I noticed things...a label with "kiblat" on the corner of my hotel room pointing in which direction to pray. I also noticed that there was no ticker on the bottom of their televisions telling each citizen how afraid to be either. It is a Muslim country, but also Hindu. Filipinos work there too, and are mostly Catholic. The city is beautiful if you're in the right part. There's lots of construction and growth, but over what has been run down. Like any city. As an American, I didn't notice anyone eyeballing me or hating me. A lot of what we see on the news is pure BS. If you do go to another country, just find somewhere you're comfortable with. Lots of people who work and live overseas are renouncing their US citizenship just to get rid of the taxes!
I don't know, but when you find a place, would you please let me know? Seriously, I think this is still the best place to live, but I agree with your observations. This is not the America I grew up in, and I don't believe it ever will be again.

Why do so many countries other than USA have wonderful maternity leave?A large amount of countries take care of mothers after giving birth yet here in USA there is no paid leave unless offered by employers, which is not mandatory. So why is America lacking in this area?

If America is such a bad country, why not just leave?Some people are so critical of America. They can find very little that is good about it. Why stay here? I know that having the money to move could be used as an excust. But, 'where there's a will, there's a way.'The irony of the criticism is that...

Whose country is this? Today we see more and more people ending their arguments with the comments “If you don’t like then leave” or “it’s my way or the highway.” This is similar to the “you are either with us or with the terrorist” suggesting that if you don’t support every one of...
