I say Canada! They speak English, have their fiscal house in order and while their health care system isn't quite up to what we have here, tain't bad either, What's that you say? Too cold? Getting a bit frost bitten, might not be nearly as bad the totalitarian way of life facing us here!

Indeed it does!

ALSO: DONT BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU HEAR ABOUT FREEDOM IN CANADA. Take a wee bit of a closer look and you will see some frightening differences....

They do NOT have freedom of speech. NOT BY A LONG SHOT. They also believe that the onus of proof in the law is on the accused...think about that.

NOt for nothing, affluent Canadiens come here.

Where I live, there are several Americans who have left the USA and applied for Canadian citizenship.Having said that, I hope none of you nut bars on this thread decide to come here,

Rwright,again a LIAR;
it was a Canadian GOVERNMENT department doing the prosecuting.

you folks have a Human Rights Commission acting as your thought police.

you are SO dishonest.

A reader from New York has a follow-up question for me.

Referencing a “Question of the Week” from last month, in which I expressed guarded optimism that America could be saved, she wants to know what I would do if things go the wrong way.

In other words, what if things go really wrong and America suffers a Greek-style fiscal collapse? And imagine how bad that might be since there wouldn’t be an IMF or European Central Bank capable of providing bailouts to the United States.

Perhaps because of an irrational form of patriotism, I’m fairly certain that I...
