    I figured I should cheer all the Romney fans up a bit. The truth is that

    So just get a passport, and follow this guy's lead. Not because Obama won, but because of every single President since the beginning of the last century. The country has been broken for a while now, and time's almost up.

    If you plan on paying into the system for the next 40 years, go ahead. But don't expect to get anything back when you retire. If you want to retire, you should save yourself. Preferably by working in a country without social security.

    Stock market is looking red across the board. Guessing that's supposed to happen after an election.

    White people have destroyed this country. Don't worry, the people who truly built America will surely rebuild it.

    Serious question. What would be the best country to move to, since you really don't hear good news coming from any corner of the world.

    I seem to remember an interview with Ringo or some such rich Englishman where he talked about living on a tropical island because of the high taxes everywhere else. I forget where it was, but it sounded nice.

    I know that Dave Lister always wanted to move to Fiji with his cat and Kochansky, if that helps at all. I don't know much about Fiji these days.

    I think the thinking is that if we're going to go socialist we may as well do it in an area where we don't have to worry about getting beaten and killed by the people robbing us. You know, a nicer class of crook.

    Someplace self sufficient, as much as possible. Islands have to import sooo much stuff. Maybe Chile, or Czech Republic.

    Europe is more white and tends to have lower crime however...

    Income Taxes= same as U.S. or higher
    VAT= on top of income taxes = much higher cost of living

    As an example.. Norway is a massive net oil exporter relative to population size and yet gas costs $10+/Gallon.
    Granted you get the deluxe nanny state treatment with "Free" everything and a very white (albeit declining) population... but there are plenty issues.

    2) Iceland: Unique facial features
    3) Netherlands: Long legged
    4) Sweden/Finland: Sheer purity
    5) Northern Poland- Huge Tits

    6) Estonia: Honorable mention (kind of a southern Finland)

    Depends on what you're trying to do. If you're looking for a relatively free country with a great economy and a solid judiciary, Singapore and Hong Kong are great.

    Hong Kong has had 4% yearly growth over the past five years, 7% last year, unemployment is around 3.5%, inflation 2.5%, income tax 15%.

    Singapore's economy grew by 4.8% last year and 15% in 2010 (6.5% on average, past five years), unemployment is 2.1%, inflation 2.8%, income tax 20%. Singapore has an open market (no tariffs whatsoever for most imported goods and services). Both governments spend within their means, keeping debt to a minimum. So none of that growth comes from the government borrowing and wasting money, it comes from the private sector. I'd say that's some pretty good news.

    If you don't mind fascism and corruption, China's economic growth has been above 10% for the past five year average, unemployment is at 4%, inflation 3.3%. India is growing almost as fast. Same with a few other developing countries. But taxes are going to keep going up, and government spending is going to grow even faster, entering dangerous territory in both countries. Some of that growth is because of government over-spending. That's more mixed news than good, and they will eventually run into trouble similar to the US and Europe. That's unavoidable, it happened to every country that's been following this pattern of over-spending to produce growth. It just doesn't work. But they're not there yet.

    Brazil or Switzerland.

    The only reason it mattered is because it showed the mentality of the masses, they want a guy who says you didn't build that, they want a guy who demonizes individuality and praises collectivism during his victory speech.

    Hong Kong and Singapore are two industrialized countries that aren't socialist. Japan is also nowhere near as socialist as Europe.

    Brazil is exactly in the same position as India, economically. Corrupt and fascist, and they are spending more than they can possibly collect in taxes.

    On top of that, the odds of making something of yourself and being allowed to actually keep your property are slim to none. At least that probably won't happen to you in India or China.

    Besides, as a conspiracy nut, your best bet is staying put. The US is the only country that doesn't punish trolling.

    I thought Singapore was at least partially Muslim, and had some religious laws? I could be wrong, but didn't Ray Bradbury live there?

    They're mostly Buddhists, so, unless being annoyingly calm became mandatory and I haven't heard, they probably don't have any religious laws. They do have crazy drug laws.
