    Re: If you had to flee America.

    Live free or die trying,...

    Marines don't run from a fight. I owe it to all who fought and died for this country and my freedoms to stay and fight to the end.

    That said, I would love to visit Austrailia, New Zealand and Norway for as long as it takes for me to satisfy my travel bug and return home.

    Re: If you had to flee America.

    Costa Rica for the surfing.
    Australia for the Reef and surfing.
    New Zealand for the outdoor adventures.
    Switzerland for the watches.
    I have buddies in New Zealand and Costa Rica, so those two are tops for me.

    Others off the list?
    Thailand for the exotic and inexpensive nature.
    Chile for Patagonia.
    Alaska because that really isn't the US.
    France for the wine and Riveria
    Monaco for the night life and Indy Circuit
    Spain for Rioja's and Tapas.
    California since it is the greatest place on the planet minus the polluted air, the almost 40 million people, the anger and aggression, the polluted oceans and the massive illegal immigration problem. And because California kinda owns the USA.

The Switz aren't skinny because they work out a lot, its because they can't stuff their faces like Americans' do unless they want to go bankrupt.
    And no Harry Guerilla I don't believe you are prepared for the cost of basic items.

    Also, I would rather move to Austria than any nation in the world. And then if it were going to be an expensive place to live in, I'd choose Denmark. The people in Denmark are really great compared to Switz and the average Europeans. The Switz are pretty cold at times they remind me of the Montanan(is that right?) character of being cold to outsiders so that they don't move to their beautiful land, because most don't like people.
    I don't spend a lot of money as a matter of habit.

    I understand some things would cost more but it doesn't make any difference to me.
    The Swiss have a pretty good history and I like their general attitude towards government and non interventionism.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Isn't their income tax rate like 6,000%?

    I believe their effective tax rate is less than the U.S.

    I'll look it up.

    Edit: Here it is.

    The Swiss government is modeled after a confederation.
    Compared to ours it isn't as important as the cantons(states) are in their daily lives.

    They are a pretty cool bunch from what I've been reading.
