If you had to emigrate from the United States, where would you go and why?

    Well...   Canada, because it's closest to where I am now, and my family is here.  Besides, Canada seems like a perfectly nice place.   smile   Also, I tend to prefer a Northern climate because the insects (and whatever else) tend to be a-whole-nother thing in warmer climates.   LOL

      I hear you but it's too cold for my blood.

    That's a question I can't answer...because I've already been through the thought process and chose to die fighting right here in the States if it came to that.  In 1968, after Bobby Kennedy was assassinated, I seriously thought about taking my family and bugging out--for all of 30 or 40 seconds.  But, realizing that (for me, at least), no other country was any better, I decided to lock and load instead.  If it came to political battles, or even a Civil War, the government hunting down independent thinkers with kill teams, whatever, it didn't matter. 

    I might die young, but I wasn't going anywhere.

    So, if I HAD to emigrate--say, there was a Death Squad with rifles in my rear urging me on, saying I HAD to get out...I'd go any given direction, no preference, but just far enough to go black, circle black, and give 'em Hell till I was pushing up daisies.

      Wow. What if you couldn't circle back. Suppose the Death Squad did an extraordinary rendition and dropped you in a place like Kyrgyzstan? Or what if there was an ecological disaster?

      For you to pick another country, you have to know or at least have an interest in another country. Your cowboy hat and the US flag on your pic say it all! I understand why you would prefer to die in a sept 11 like event versus adopting another countr

    I don't live in the US, but from what I see, and the reports from my son, who lives there, anywhere would do.

    If I had to leave the US, I would probably go somewhere on the western coast of South America, probably Colombia or Ecuador. I would love to be immersed in the culture and language.

      I'm seriously considering this myself and Colombia is on my list.

    France or Japan, Korea or China. Good memories, interesting cultures and histories, good food.

    somewhere in the Caribean preferrably Saint Kitts - perhaps, I am biased because I was born and raised in those parts. As for the reasons: the warm weather, the fruits, and the black and white sand beaches, the unpoluted drinking water so far, the fish, and above all, the Christian faith that still holds sway.

    Switzerland.  They have so much going for them, including a very low rate of crime.
