it's ok Avalach21, I do post a lot about this. Thanks for the comment though.
i am 40. I have lived a while, and the biggest leap from what the US uses to be in my lifetime happened last week. Sorry if I seem to talk to much about it, but I am not going to stop.
Yes. I have a gaming PC, PS3, 360, and Wii. I have little use for these forums anymore with respect to games. I have posted a few times in here in the last few months, but not much. But, being I have been here for years, and like debating with the regular crowed, this is where I like to post.
I am headed to New Zealand in 32 days. I will be there two weeks. I am going to tour the north island and check out all the places I could posable live (where they have work for me). I am also just going to check out the culture, and see if it seems like a great place to live.
I realize New Zealand has socialized health insurance, but so does everyone now. New Zealand is also the least corrupt government in the world. My main reason for leaving, is I pay around 30,000-40,000 a year in taxes. If I am going to pay that kind of coin to a government, I mine as well pay one that works.
If every government is now going to be providing services, I will treat governments like I treat retail stores. If you suck, I will not do business with you. The return on my investment in the US is just horrible. Time to shop around.
