  • If someone wanted to pack up and leave the US for a whole bunch of reasons, which nations would be the easiest move? (Excluding the EU, China, Africa, north korea, and other outliers)

  • Ecuador ?

    Ecuador stats
    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

  • What do you mean by the "easiest" move.

    I suspect you'd find reasons to dislike the place you moved to soon enough.

    I've always thought Georgia (the country) would be a nice place to retire.  Great climate, nice people, divorce is rare family unit has not broken down, fruit and vegetables are growing everywhere with a couple of growing seasons per year, they cost peanuts, nothing poisonous and no enviromental pollution or tropical diseases.

    Wine is very good too.

    This is hilarious!  I'm bursting into laughing tears.  On the inside.

    I said this exact same thing back in 2009 over on Fisheaters.  Got excoriated for it.  Apparently, four years ago, to say such a thing was tantamount to being an unpatriotic America-hater.

    I guess it's now acceptable to ask this sort of thing.  

    Meh.

    So, did you end up moving somewhere? Did you find that country?

  • Everyone talks about Malta, as being mostly "Catholic" but isn't Malta Novus Ordo, which is the same to say Non-Catholic?  Statistics can be deceitful.

    I don't think there is any traditional Catholic chapels there, not even the Latin Mass is offered. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Good point.  

    I would rather see the U.S. dissolve into several small nation-states.

    I've concluded I'd like to either live in Malta or Hungary, in that order.  Malta is a nice place, and I'd enjoy it.  Hungary is making an awesome comeback, I've heard.  

    But no, I never moved as I hoped.  The reality of children stopped that before I could make it happen.

  • I dont know why parts of Asia are a priori off limits to the OP. That's a bit odd...and a mistake IMO

    Read the International Man blog/newsletter. If you're on FB, 'Like' them.

    To answer the question as structured, consider Argentina. No, really. It's actually not so bad for a foreigner bringing in their own currency.

    Most jobs are in on-line gambling and Financial Services (tax avoidance) and right now the Spanish are making it difficult for the locals to leave the place.

    It's a VERY small place to be stuck on it you cannot travel unhindered into Spain and back again.  There are lot of items you would need to cross into Spain for.

    Crossing the border there has been a hassle for years.  The Spanish are constantly playing silly buggers.  Last time I drove over and back relatively unhindered was 1991

    I saw an action/adventure movie that took place in Russia (or maybe it was just a Hollywood backlot)....

    ...does that count?
