Or any other quasi free country like New Zealand, or Costa Rica?

Just wondering since every 250 years is how long it takes for an average empire to go tits-up. The ancestors up and left europe to come here about 230 yrs ago so its gettin close to about that time. Plus Caesar seems to want to accelerate towards tbe edge of the cliff.

Um...let's see...

Columbus came here 1492.

The Jamestown settlement began in 1607.

1620 is when the Pilgrims actually came to Massachusetts.

Again about the 250 years????

Besides, Julius Caesar didn't go over a cliff. He crossed the River Rubicon and the die was cast...

Veni, Vidi, Vici.

So, your point?

He is a little off on when people came but on about the length of a government. Even the patriots that risked everything to break free of the king made mention of the need to refresh the tree of Liberty with the blood of tyrants and patriots.

Government forms may change or modify, true. Think this way: Great Britain. Has been stable and in existence for well over 1,000 years....and it has no single constitution, although it is a constitutional monarchy...

Some countries which have been fought over or occupied--Norway, Poland come to mind--still exist and are thriving. Norway was actually formed as a nation in the late 800. Iceland, been in existence since the 900s.

We haven't even had the same "government" in terms of approach or ideology consistently over the 235 years of US existence, either--and we were shortly divided during the Civil War...

Depends on how you view things.

This country has too many natural resources and too much farmland to ever go belly up. Not worried.

The question was: has anyone considered moving out of the US?

I understand the central part of Costa Rica has an average altitude around 3500 feet so the average temps there are in the 70s year round. Of course hot and humid down at the beaches. I'm never dealing with cold shittyass ohio weather ever again.

I'm also finding that pretty much anything medical one can get in the US is pretty much available in San Jose the capital. And most people there can speak fairly decent english.

They're also predicting an influx of American Drs fleeing obamacare. While they have a national healthcare system there its not anything nearly as intrusive. Docs there are free to conduct their business as they see fit.

I also understand they lack golf courses there and there's plenty of available jungle to purchase and build golf courses on.

Interesting. While I'm not against hunting I've never been a hunter myself. I have looked into their gun laws though which are allowed there and I do own.
