It's very expensive and IMHO the quality of life there is not as good as it is here.

Australia and Canada both have points systems, meaning you can obtain a visa if you match enough of their standards, i.e. have enough points. I don't know why you'd be desperate to leave the US, but I think those are probably the only realistic options.
All of the above is something most people do not think about. Now, most countries will not let you just move or relocate to their country. New Zealand is just like Australia. Their immigration system is based on points. You have to have enough points to even be considered to apply for residency. Not sure about Australia, but NZ only allows a certain number of those who have enough points to apply for residency. Plus it costs money each step of the way!

Someone needs to inform the millions of illegal mexicans flooding the states.
