@Merry Andrew,
Your are probably right Merry Andrew I am overly dramatic sometimes but not about this one. I had to rush out of the house today and I took a cab. The driver was from Somalia and we talked some politics and he was telling me how great the US is just as a fancy car whizzed by. I live in a kind of high end neighborhood or I used to.

Turns out I may be the last one standing with a paid for home and not outstanding credit debt. You see here in San Diego the average home price two years ago was $500,000.00 and now it is down to $150,000.00 and lots of foreclosed on condos and homes. I really am not sure I will be able to stand all the whining.
Merry Andrew

@TilleyWink,
As for the current economic situation, I don't see it changing very much one way or t'other, regardless who is in the Oval Office. If McCain gets to live in the White House, more US tax dolars will be spent on overseas adventures e.g. Iraq, the containment of Iran etc. etc. If it's Obama, more US tax dollars will be spent on domestic relief and fence-mending with former allies etc. etc. In either scenario the lot of the average middle-class American doesn't change significantly.

I must agree with Calamity that Amsterdam is my place of choice. However, the problem with this country is not the leaders but the people themselves! If we all move to Amsterdam then it's only a matter of time before John McCain gets in there as well.

@ossobuco,
I would prefer that anyone that would vote for socialism and redistribution of wealth move to France, Sweden, or, Antarctica. You most definitely aren't an American if you would even consider voting for Obama (I'll give you a pass if you are black).

You give us a clear picture as to how your wacky ideas get set in that empty head of yours.

This post is a virtual admission that I'm correct, since you did what most liberals do and merely insult, rather than give a reason why I'm not correct.

@CalamityJane,
Eh... the Dutch have been having their own share of far-right crazies. The anti-immigrant parties reached 20-25% in the polls earlier this year.

And with good reason. They're getting overrun by Islam.

@nimh,
I know nimh! I have a Dutch friend who is looking to escape the Netherlands as soon as her husband retires.

TillyWilly, I am in San Diego too - where do you find a house for $ 150,000?
Not even in Logan Heights eh, and there you need a bulletproof west.

As they should - and too bad about the gun confiscation. I don't like sheeple subjects.

@TilleyWink,
How about where to move if he wins, which of course he did? If you think Reaganomics makes you crazy, Obamanomics is already busy taxing working Americans into the ground, to get the money to support those who believe they shouldn't have to exert themselves, including everyone who happens to waltz across the border. You think health care is expensive now? Wait until it's free! I'm 66 years old, and I'm not sure I can afford to live in the US much longer; Australia is looking better and better - it's going to be moderate, by comparison.

BTW - you should consider lessons in grammar and spelling - another area in which Americans are increasingly deficient.

@TheVan,
Australians pay a higher tax rate than Americans, part of which funds their health care system. I doubt you will be able to move to Australia, they have very strict immigration laws. You are their version of a person trying to "waltz" across the border and you are not going to be welcomed.

Have spelling scores gone down in recent years in the USA, TheVan? I know that for grammar deployed in actual use, things are pretty much as they've always been, just fine.

If you meant that Americans are deficient in explaining grammar, there too, not much has changed for centuries. But in this, they're on a par with every other dialect of English.

You use commas incorrectly then want to tell others they need lessons in grammar? Are you one of those deficient Americans you were talking about?

Unless of course you meant to say that "Reaganomics made you crazy to get the money to support those who believe"
