If you could move abroad, would you? [View all]

I have often thought lately that if a good opportunity came along, I would leave without regret. We can't seem to get anything done anymore in this country, we still don't have universal health care, our educational system is nothing but a political football, privacy is a quaint concept, our infrastructure is crumbling, there are guns everywhere, our politicians are for the most part clowns, we spend far too much money on the military, and Larry the Cable Guy is what passes for entertainment. Obama reminds me of one of those few capable emperors in the waning decades of the Roman Empire who tried to halt the decline of the empire but in the end couldn't do it. Why is it I watch "House Hunters International" and fantasize?
