More recommended reading

I'd also recommend reading: this article.

I'm not sure if I should describe it as a feel-good piece or a doom and gloom piece; I suppose it depends highly on your own personal view of America becoming a more socialist country. Regardless of your opinion on it, though, I found it to be a very well thought-out analysis of what's probably going to transpire over the next four (at least) years. I suppose it's kinda disheartening if you're in the category of productive worker with no political connections or ambitions who gets absolutely raped in a socialist system, but for every person like that, there's probably two other people very happy to have their government take that person's hard-earned wealth and forcefully redistribute it for the "good" of the less productive.

Anybody have any good suggestions for a democratic, free-market country that abused ex-Americans can move to in a few years? I realize the list of options is dwindling with the global credit contraction, but there's got to be a few left. I prefer somewhere that speaks English, and has reasonable personal freedoms... if you have suggestions, please leave a comment.
