How can you ever consider another country? You would need another planet, to my knowledge everything on our planet is owned by at least one evil Gov. or another & they all have some sort of stupid rules so you would have little other choice. Maybe you could get a ship with an long anchor but I'm not even sure you could get away with that but at least you would be your own metal country for a time at least.
So one country ISN'T "better" than another? How does that qualify us as the "best country on earth" then?
And if one isn't better than the next, why do you suggest I leave?
Also, I'm a little shocked to hear you admit that you have no control over your government. Seems like a dangerous place to live.
The USA is the best country on earth for ME, I never said it was for you. You seem awfully cynical and always seem to have a chip on your shoulder. The world is your oyster Jeff so instead of bitchin and moaning about how lousey everything is how about changing it or your situation? You have the same opportunities that everyone else has and I don't just mean here. Go after them and be happy!
