    I can live with that.

    I don't really like McDonald's anyway.
    In the end I think it's worth it.

    Just so you know though, firearms ownership is heavily regulated here. Getting a conceal carry permit is damn near impossible for a civilian. Also, we have mandatory health insurance.
    I've read about the firearms laws previously and they seem rigorous from a US perspective. I don't have a concealed-carry permit here either, so no big deal.

    And if I were leaving the US, mandatory health care wouldn't rank very high on my list of concerns.

    Salaries are much higher than the European average here. It evens out in the end. Plus, depending on where you live, you can go across the border to France, Germany or Italy for cheaper groceries and restaurants, including McDonalds.

    Your country is pretty slick, I like it's independent nature and the strong privacy laws.
    I also like your government structure.
    Yeah, me too. I like the way the Federal gov is constantly kept in check. I like that most of the power is still with the individual cantons (states).

    There's also Montana and North Dakota as possible options.

    I've considered trying to immigrate eventually.

    Is it difficult?
