Should You Move To Another Country To Escape The Collapse Of America? 10 Questions To Ask Yourself First

Should You Move To Another Country To Escape The Collapse Of America?Why are so many people leaving the United States right now?  Over the past couple of years, an increasing number of Americans have decided that moving to another country is the best way to prepare for the collapse of America.  According to the U.S. State Department, an all-time record of more than 6 million Americans are now working or studying overseas.  Of course many of those that have left the country do not believe that the U.S. economy is going to collapse, but without a doubt there are an increasing number of preppers that believe that now is the time to "escape from America" while they still can.  And certainly there are a lot of reasons why the U.S. is becoming less appealing with each passing day.  In addition to our economic problems, crime is on the rise in our cities, our liberties and freedoms are being eroded at a frightening pace, political correctness is wildly out of control, and our corrupt politicians continue to make things even worse.  But is life really that much better in the rest of the world?  The sad truth is that life in most other nations is more difficult than it is in the United States.  Yes, there are some nations that are relatively stable and that look promising at first glance, but the truth is that moving to another country is never easy.  If you plan to do it, there are some hard questions that you need to ask yourself first.

If you plan to move permanently to another nation, it would be wise to visit first.  The way that things work in a foreign country is often very, very different from how things work in the United States.  If you are not accustomed to being in a foreign culture, it can feel like your whole world is being turned upside down.

But of course it is definitely possible to make a successful transition to another culture.  Millions of Americans have done it.  The following is from a recent RT article...

Ever dream of leaving it all behind and heading out of America? You’re not the only one. A new study shows that more US citizens than ever before are living outside of the country.

According to statistics from the US State Department, around 6.4 million Americans are either working or studying overseas, which Gallup says is the largest number ever for such statistic.

The polling organization came across the number after conducting surveys in 135 outside nations and the information behind the numbers reveal that this isn’t exactly a longtime coming either — numbers have skyrocketed only in recent years. In the 24 months before polling began, the number of Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 living abroad managed to surge from barely 1 percent to over 5.1 percent. For those under the age span wishing to move overseas, the percentage has jumped in the same amount of time from 15 percent to 40.

But picking up and moving to a foreign nation is not something to be done lightly.

The following are 10 questions to ask yourself before you decide to move to another country...

Do You Speak The Language?  If Not, How Will You Function?

If you do not speak the language of the country that you are moving to, that can create a huge problem.  Just going to the store and buying some food will become a challenge.  Every interaction that you have with anyone in that society will be strained, and your ability to integrate into the culture around you will be greatly limited.

How Will You Make A Living?

Unless you are independently wealthy, you will need to make money.  In a foreign nation, it may be very difficult for you to find a job - especially one that pays as much as you are accustomed to making in the United States.

Will You Be Okay Without Your Family And Friends?

Being thousands of miles away from all of your family and friends can be extremely difficult.  Will you be okay without them?  And it can be difficult to survive in a foreign culture without any kind of a support system.  Sometimes the people that most successfully move out of the country are those that do it as part of a larger group.

Have You Factored In Weather Patterns And Geological Instability?

As the globe becomes increasingly unstable, weather patterns and natural disasters are going to become a bigger factor in deciding where to live.  For example, right now India is suffering through the worst drought that it has experienced in nearly 50 years.  It would be very difficult to thrive in the middle of such an environment.

Many of those that are encouraging people to "escape from America" are pointing to Chile as an ideal place to relocate to.  But there are thousands of significant earthquakes in Chile each year, and the entire nation lies directly along the "Ring of Fire" which is becoming increasingly unstable.  That is something to keep in mind.

What Will You Do For Medical Care?

If you or someone in your family had a serious medical problem in the United States, you would know what to do.  Yes, our health care system is incredibly messed up, but at least you would know that you could get the care that you needed if an emergency arose.  Would the same be true in a foreign nation?

Are You Moving Into A High Crime Area?

Yes, crime is definitely on the rise in the United States.  But in other areas where many preppers are moving to, crime is even worse.  Mexico and certain areas of Central America are two examples of this.  And in many foreign nations, the police are far more corrupt than they generally are in the United States.

In addition, many other nations have far stricter gun laws than the United States does, so your ability to defend your family may be greatly restricted.

So will your family truly be safe in the nation that you plan to take them to?

Are You Prepared For "Culture Shock"?

Moving to another country can be like moving to a different planet.  After all, they don't call it "culture shock" for nothing.

If you do move to another country, you may quickly find that thousands of little things that you once took for granted in the U.S. are now very different.

And there is a very good chance that many of the "amenities" that you are accustomed to in the U.S. will not be available in a foreign nation and that your standard of living will go down.

So if you are thinking of moving somewhere else, you may want to visit first just to get an idea of what life would be like if you made the move.

What Freedoms and Liberties Will You Lose By Moving?

Yes, our liberties and our freedoms are being rapidly eroded in the United States.  But in many other nations around the world things are much worse.  You may find that there is no such thing as "freedom of speech" or "freedom of religion" in the country that you have decided to move to.

Is There A Possibility That The Country You Plan To Escape To Could Be Involved In A War At Some Point?

We are moving into a time of great geopolitical instability.  If you move right into the middle of a future war zone, you might really regret it.  If you do plan to move, try to find a country that is likely to avoid war for the foreseeable future.

When The Global Economy Collapses, Will You And Your Family Be Okay For Food?

What good will it be to leave the United States if you and your family run out of food?

Today, we are on the verge of a major global food crisis.  Global food reserves are at their lowest level in nearly 40 years, and shifting global weather patterns are certainly not helping things.

And the global elite are rapidly getting more control over the global food supply.  Today, between 75 and 90 percent of all international trade in grain is controlled by just four gigantic multinational food corporations.

But grain is not the only thing that the food giants control.  Just check out the following statistics from a recent Natural News article...

The paper said three mega-multinationals now control better than 40 percent of global coffee sales, for example. Eight companies control the supply of cocoa and chocolate. Seven control the lion's share - 85 percent - of tea production. Five multinationals control three-quarters of the world banana trade. And the largest half-dozen sugar traders account for about 66 percent of world trade, the new report by the Fairtrade Foundation said.

The elite are also buying up food producing real estate all over the globe.  That is why farmland prices in the United States have been absolutely skyrocketing lately.

The people that run the world are rapidly getting a stranglehold over the global food supply.

So wherever you end up - whether it is in the United States or in another country - you will need to make sure that you can provide enough food for you and your family to live on independently of the system.

These are all things to think about when considering whether or not to move out of the United States.

But there are many, including some of those that regularly read my website, that have made the transition successfully.

If you have some advice that you would like to share with those that are considering moving away from America, please feel free to share it below...

    if you really fear a global economic collapse (as many of us do), the comments about food supply are interesting, but to tell you the truth, i’ve been to many spots all over Central and South America, and Mexico, where the impacts on food supply would be minimized. These areas are still living “primatively”, using horses, burros, and hand plow their land. they grow food the “old fashioned way” without chemical fertilizers. And so on.

    these folks often DO NOT HAVE ELECTRICITY, so losing it won’t be noticed.

      and, many of these locations can grow food for 12 months out of the year. Their overall cost of living is lower, too.

    Sure you can, as soon as you renounce your citizenship.

    If you gotta pick a country, go with Canada. Not-terribly-ridiculous gun laws, ample space to buy reasonably cheap land, a decent free healthcare system, lowish crime (stay out of a few places and your golden) and 90% of our population is within 90 miles of the US Border (forming both a buffer to northern migration and keeping the willingly blind non-prepared pinned down.)

    Eh?

  • stuckhere

    Funny you should mention Canada. My daughter and I are both US citizens. We are interested in dual citizenship, so today I went to see an immigration lawyer. Very sadly, we do not qualify to become Canadian citizens. Apparently Canada has become quite stringent in their requirements. We have no family there, no job offers, and even though I am a college graduate with 30 years of experience in the medical field, they are not looking for anyone In my field of expertise. I was turned away.

    Im willing to prep for all that its better than what this place is going to be and living in fear so much these days.

    America used to be the icon of the world, the land of the free. But that has been lost long ago! China is not the ideal land to live, it has a history of corruption. But with that said, look at America, it too has a history of corruption. So if one is saying that one is a better place to live than the other, that will depend upon what you are comparing it to. As for me, I still would prefer America, but that may quickly change, since Americans liberties and freedoms are in jeopardy.

    American propaganda? You bet there is, and the American people are being lied to every day! Thanks to the special interest groups that feed garbage to the media and the media eats it up like candy.

    Good Luck, life is way to short to live and die this way, I’m leaving In 2 months, I’m done with this tyrannical crap.

  • Ann Coffey

    Please, Americans, stay home!

    One point in your post that is not true. You say, “Latin Americans for the most part like Americans.” This is not true at all. They might like your money, but they don’t like you. As a European, I am so sick of negative vibes in Latin America because of their assuming I am American. Of course, I soon set them straight and then their attitude towards me changes for the better.

    You are quite right when you say that they don’t like Americans in Europe, and this is true as well for Britain, Africa, the Middle East, the Orient and Downunder. I think staying home is your only option unless you can find employment in a polar region or Russia.

    I think what all of my White Brothers and Sisters have miss in all of this stuff, is the fact that my white brothers and sisters, never wanted to play fair with their other non-white brothers and sisters of the world.
    You see you can’t start a country based on greed and murder, such as my white brothers did when they came to the Americas and destroys the Indians, and brought slavery, and bamboozled the mexicans.
    For if you do, then that country will behave that away for all of its existence. See the greed of America and its willingness to kill, steal, and to destroy everything for the sake of maintaining its position. And so that same greed, and its violence has filtered down throughout the culture. The recipients of any Kingdom will always behave like their Kings, or rulers. Creed and violence from the top to the bottom of our culture.

    Having lived in Thailand the last year I can relate to the importance of speaking the language and the severity of cultural shock. Becoming and expat is extremely difficult. It may still be worth it though given the horrific collapse coming to the US.
    The best advice was to visit your country of choice before committing. I thought Thailand was going to be it for me but now I am looking elsewhere.
    On my list are The Philippines and Malaysia in Asia, both places have a decent number of english speaking people. In south and central america Uruguay, Ecuador, and Costa Rica becuase I am familiar with hispanic culture and know a little spanish.
    Until you have actually experienced being an expat DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE the warning in this article. Language barriers are huge, cultural shock will shake you to your bones, and the loneliness of being away from friends/family is a real experience for every expat.
    Even with all of that said, I still believe the wise thing to do is to leave and I am staying away from the US until things calm down again. Hopefully, in my life time.
