    Definitely.
    I think their non interventionism has been able to keep their federal government in check.
    It had no excuse to grow.
    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.

    My "anti-federalist" mentality is actually very similar in nature to Swiss Federalism.

    In the US, the anti-federalists were the one's arguing for something like what Switzerland adopted.

    I'll look it up.

    Edit: Here it is.
    Aside from Canada and Switzerland, which are listed, what are the tax rates on the other countries I listed?

    Belize and Australia in particular.

    Please discuss your reasons for your choice.

    This poll is multiple choice. If you like, you may choose more than one.
    I would flee if Sarah Palin ever became President.

    I chose Canada first because it's close by and I can dig how nice they are, but they get bad winters and I haven't even seen snow yet.

    I chose Mexico next because it's probably the next closest nation I could flee to, but I don't know if I would do well with the lack of infrastructure or all the drug wars that happen there.

    Next was Netherlands, which I can dig because I favor the legalization of drugs and prostitution, but that may make it a place I could visit rather than live.

    So my final choice was Switzerland because it's a pretty neutral country so I expect it to leave people mostly alone, which I can respect, and I could learn to handle the cold there.

    Ugh... the majority want to come to Canada.

    I think a lot of you who voted for Canada fail to realize that if the U.S. economy collapses, our economy would also go under. You would just be fleeing from one broken country to another. And it would be much colder.

    I always find it funny when conservatives, who hate "socialism" and high taxes, say they want to move away from America, and then list places which have higher taxes and more socialism than the US.

    Remember Limbaugh's threat to leave the country if health care passed and move to Costa Rica, where they have a national health care program?

    Norway. I have friends in Bergen and everyone I've met from there is generally quite pleased with life - plus most people speak English so I think the transition would be easier that way - and I'm pretty sure I could get a job pretty quickly thanks to the people I know.

    I like Canada. They are a more moderate country than the U.S.. They rarely have an unbalanced budget, they aren't a super power, they have a reasonable healthcare system, and I like the Northern climate with lots of winter sports options. I would fit in well in Canada. I like Canada very much.

    I'd go to Israel

    It's the only other nation I'd die for.
