    As to other countries, though, there are several that would be just fine with me with New Zealand probably heading the list, but I see no particular need to move.
    By changing times I am referring to the war that will never end, a failing economy, rising unemployment rates, cities going bankrupt (Detroit), huge government debt, new healthcare system, new gun policies, ominous gathering of military vehicles and weaponry, drones flying around, patriot act, etc, etc. These things worry me.

    This is American pride at its finest, and I'm all about being a patriot, but America is far from the greatest country on earth.

    Nope.

    And what country are you going to move to? If you're an economic conservative, good luck with that.

    Though, if I had to. I'd move to Canada, no culture shock to worry about. I hear Toronto is nice.

    I disagree. No other country on the planet has access to our combination of wealth and power, it is what has given us an unprecedented position on the globe. We are the greatest country on the planet. There are more metrics in the world than whether or not Sweden has a higher high school math aptitude rate.

    I often hear people refer to the greatness that is Andorra.

    I was born American and I will die American. But to those that want to leave for whatever reason that you think of; dont let the door hit you in the ass, Americans do not need you here.

    You should have just quoted your signature because it cuts to the root of the question.
