If you were forced to leave your country, what other country would you pick to live in?
Actually, list your top three choices and why you chose them. Then name a country you would never want step foot in.
There is no doubt my choice would be Costa Rica. If I could get my wife to agree I would be living there now.
Probably Canada. It's the closest thing to home. They speak English, share most of our values and culture. It's also close enough that I could still visit the people I love.
Iceland - most beautiful place on earth, wonderful people, low crime and high quality of life, most people speak English, my preferred climate (never too hot and always a little on the chilly side), generally very forward-thinking
England - lot of the same reasons as above, love the culture and history as well
Ireland - same as above mostly, my family came from Ireland 3 generations ago also so would be cool to head back
Would never step foot in North Korea.
#1- New Zealand- It's the most free English speaking nation in the world and the climate isn't too bad.
#2 Australia- The 2nd most free English speaking nation in the world has a nice climate and a variety of different things to do and places to see.
#3 Canada- the 3rd most free English speaking nation in the world and a variety of different things to do and places to see
#1 Country to avoid-(Syria)- An terribly oppressive Islamic theocracy in a hot desert.
I'd be gone already but the problem is would they accept me?
Extremely hard to go to NZ or CA unless you have programming skills - which I don't.
1 - CA
2 - ?
3 - ?
Never: Most of the world -
Easy. New Zealand = #1. Great economy, friendly people, beautiful country, English speaking. Ireland = #2. Land of my people. Love it there. Cayman Islands = #3. An island paradise. Would never live in Mexico due to the crime or North Korea / Cuba because of its governments.

Should everyone in this country be forced to learn English?English is NOT the official language of this country and it is considered one the hardest languages to master. Many Americans who move to other countries never learn the native language there.

The Tampa republican debate brought up the topic of a national language. This would mean all politics would be dealt in the English language. This includes voting ballots. What are the bonuses to such a policy and on the other hand what are the unintended consequences?
