"Why don't you just leave the country?"

And, really, I'd like to. Which is why I'm writing.

It's really expensive. You gotta fly to another country. And then I've got to become a citizen in another country, because the United States is the only tax farm on the planet (as far as I know) that makes it's citizens pay back income tax, even if they aren't living there. And citizenship takes some time, along with legal fees, and oftentimes requires substantial income or an investment in the country.

All that said, it's really expensive.

So I'm looking for 500 people willing to donate $1,000 a piece to help me make my goal of becoming a citizen of another country a reality. In return for your $1,000, I won't bother posting any real news or facts on this website again. I won't post anything! I'll let you carry along with your Republicrat fascist state. I'll even drop half of all of my belongings off to Goodwill on the way out to stimulate the economy. You'll never see, or hear from, me again.

So? Can I get 500 sponsors for a noble cause?

you can't leave the fishbowl you can only swim to the other side - but the infection is still in the water. Corporatism is spreading globally (or haven't you heard) ?

Isn't begging for independence an oxymoron?

[-] -1 points by thoreau42 (595) 1 year ago

Sure. Just like thinking that voting new politicians into the system is going to change the system.

So who are you going to vote for in Costa Rica?

[-] 0 points by thoreau42 (595) 1 year ago

I gotta get there first, and I need a little charity to make it happen.

See? This is the real problem with society. One person goes without, revealing the cruelness of the world, so we need a benevolent dictator to distribute the resources evenly among everyone. I need to vote somebody into office this time who will use the stolen moneys from the taxpayers to give me a one way ticket to foreign citizenship. Thank you for revealing the true path to freedom.

I'm just curious why you think that things are going to be any different in Costa Rica. What you need is a sailboat. A cheap one, apparently.

[-] 0 points by thoreau42 (595) 1 year ago

Things may not be radically different at the moment. In fact, things might be worse. (and for the record, Costa Rica is just one idea floated about by another guy, I'm investigating a host of other countries)

I'm not concerned as much with WHAT IS. I am concerned with the direction we are trending. The USA is trending terribly, in the next several years at least.

To be honest, I always wanted to move because I don't understand women who speak English. They all sound like Monica Lewinsky to me.

You could do worse than Australia.

World powers, or courtries who think they are, are not on my list.

Go to the Dominican Republic, you won't need nearly as many investors. The wife and I went to a resort there years ago and lived like kings for 2 weeks on the cheap. A good old American dollar still goes a long way there. I probably could have gotten one of the locals to wipe my ass for me for the 2 weeks for another buck.

I have heard on coast nicaragua or costa rica, on beach in grass hut 2 dollars a day to live. It was on travel channel or something a year ago.

Anyway nicaragua 2 dollars a day is average cost of living. Might be nice to get out of USA and see other culture, learn the language. There many be need for English teacher.

I've lived in Mexico, but it costs a bit more and is more dangerous now, than what I've heard of costa rica and Nicaragua, which are generally safer.

Costa Rica?

I gotta find the investors first!

I tried to leave in my younger days. It's not easy at all.

Seriously bro, it's not easy to escape the farm.

I think most of us on hear hate the Republicrats. We just prefer moving in a positive direction. In truth a positive direction is hard to fathom at this point, but as long as we don't give up we are not defeated. I hope you find a way to fight for your freedom. Much of freedom and submission is in the mind.
