    The first country 3 countries which come to mind are: Switzerland, Finland, Sweden.

    All of these countries excel in educational standards, have solid economies, low crime rates, high satisfaction of citizens, and progressive civil rights. If you would like to know more about these countries, please feel free to google them.

    Re: Given the changing times, would you rather live in another country?

    I’ve been in Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Canada, Mexico, Saint Tomas, Virgin Gorda, Germany, Austria, and Hungary long enough to get at least an accurate impression of the place and the people. I’ve participated in a sport I have a wonderful time doing in a few of those places, but it is best done in the US. (The world comes to the US to train.) I have a home on a beautiful ‘private’ river in Michigan with my own boat ramp and dock and a winter home in Arizona. Move from the US to another country? Are you kidding?
    In addition, to have what I have here in the US I'd have to be a higher ranking and wealthier person in all of the places I've been to.

    Again, I respect your opinion, but it is purely that, an opinion.

    Switzerland, Finland, Sweden are so great but they will not accept you becoming a citizen?

    Phoenix canariensis is native to the Canary Islands where it is a national symbol. The sap is used there to make palm syrup. The Canary Island Date Palm is widely used as an ornamental plant in countries with warm and Mediterranean climates, even growing in Ireland and Southern England as it will withstand occasional mild frost. In warm countries Phoenix canariensis may be an invasive plant.

    I have much less material things than you but would never turn my tail and run from the frying pan to the fire.

    Due to limits within the US medical system?

    Have you tried weed? I hear it helps with a lot of medical issues.

    Re: Given the changing times, would you rather live in another country?

    No, I would rather be part of the solution to our problems. I go to local meetings all the time and talk with folks who are just liberty minded as myself. We discuss ways to spread the idea of a Libertarian government. I am not one of those people who would tuck tail and run away from my home because we have issues.

    Fact is that we need change. We need it desperately before we fall fully into this empire we've created out of our republic. I will not stop the fight to retain our lost liberties. I find that we are on the cusp of an important event in history. I know some of you will call me crazy, and that's fine....However, I feel our generation will be remembered for one of two things....

    Either we allowed our country to fall into totalitarianism or we restored our republic to its roots.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
