I read on today's trivia contest that according to a "reliable" survey, PORTUGAL is the friendliest country in the world, especially towards Expats
Would make since, sadly, that the good Ole USA is not the friendliest country Far from it

When I was a teen, I would not have thought about moving overseas to live. Now my 16 year old son wants to do just that, he does not want to grow up in the mess that the US has become. I do not blame him one bit I'll probably go with him
I love America. I am saddened and disappointed about the direction it continues to go, despite my best efforts at voting, town meetings, charitable involvement. If a ship is sinking, jump off !

Instead of Portugal though, I have had my eyes on Ireland, but my son likes New Zealand
Scandinavian countries would work too

Citizenship in Malta is a mere $1.15M Euros and a one year residency. After that, A person may reside anywhere in the EU, although there are not a lot of places in the EU where I would settle down right now


No place is perfect, but for retirement, security, and friendliness, many exist.

Good. So go move to Portugal and take a bunch of those migrant caravans at our US border with you!! And how can you compare yourself to the hordes of impoverished Central American migrants? And I doubt that Canada would be all that welcoming of you if you don't have enough monetary assets to bring with you.

And I am curious as to why the African migrants overwhelming Italy, don't instead travel onto Portugal instead? Portugal as plenty of ocean access for those refugee boats.

Then there all of those refugee camps in Calais, of Middle Easterners and Africans hoping to sneak into England through the channel tunnel. Why aren't they heading to Portugal instead???

Anyway, please keep spreading the word everywhere as to how awful America is. We don't need anymore migrants heading our way. It's not a popularity or Ms Congeniality contest that we want to win... and the prize is the huge headache and expense of trying to keep out the illegals wanting to come in.

If they only want to come in and they're not in yet, how can they be illegals? At most, they'd be Shroedinger's cat(s).

Best get started on your visa or were you going to ask for asylum?

My sister has dual citizenship - American and New Zealand. Lived in New Zealand for many years; she had to show that she had $500,000 cash before she could stay permanently.
She is happily retired and lives in North Carolina. Not going back to New Zealand.


My best friend got Australia Fever when he got out of the Air Force in '71. So they "left America forever". Lived in Australia.
He's retired in Jacksonville, FL. Not going back to Australia.
