    I might move to Tasmania when I retire. Spent a week there in 2001 and loved it.

    France would be nice, the French have always been good to me. Ireland is having a tough time of it now. I've always loved it though.

    I haven't been over in a couple of years, but the mood has changed. I've always tried hard to avoid the "ugly Americans" and for a while that was very difficult to do. Since the economies of the world have gone to hell and since the U.S. has gone into full tilt empire mode Americans are less liked than ever. My son-in-law returned from a recent trip and said the ill-feeling is palpable.

    Of course on an individual level the world is much the same people the world over a generally kind and friendly.

    My wife and I were just south of Lyon on the motorway when 9/11 happened. The French were phenomenal. We had been to France several times prior to that and had always enjoyed France. On and just after 9/11 the French couldn't wait to express their feeling of solidarity with the United States. Of course as usual the American government peed all over that opportunity.

    Yes, Costa Rica or Belize.....cheap land, less invasive govt, relatively stable...and both are beautiful and tropical.

    Who would not jump at the choice to better their circumstance? A government that refuses to be accountable and responsible for the health of the economy. Rich who take credit for wealth they themselves in no way have been responsible except through a system of legalised corruption. A middle class who will not stop their outrageous consumption. The poor who kiss the ass of those who have control. Sure this exists in many other places, but not to this degree. Almost any other English speaking country could better the position of an American who had the opportunity for citizenship there, unless they're attitude was the any of the said attitudes above.

    On a personal level the policies put in place in this country trap me, a person able and willing to work, from not working on the radar. I myself would be more productive under policies that weren't so idiotic.

    Re: Americans: Have you ever considered ex-patriation?

    I have thought about it, but the only reason I'd leave is economic necessity. A friend retired a few years back, and he had been getting "International Living" magazine. He had his eye on a retirement community in Mexico; he went down to visit and reported it was not as nice as the magazine painted it. He stayed in the US.

    But, others report that they retired 10 years ago, they can't go back to work and they can't live on their retirement income. They don't want to live in Mex. as first choice, they they have to in order to survive. I'd certainly consider it if it comes down to that.
