I saw

this and thought, cool, wonder if you can bring your guns. After a little research I found out their laws were worse than Mexico's. You wouldn't believe the hoops one has to jump through..

I guess I'll have to hold out hope that Texas will secede someday.

Anybody online who has expatriated already?

Peaceplace fled to Costa Rica, if I remember correctly. After posting for quite some time about how lovely it was there, among his last posts were warnings that the CIA presence had escalated to the point that he no longer felt one could escape the grip of the US.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.


It's going to be interesting. Now that the western frontier has pushed freedom-seekers into the ocean to build islands, everyone else is going to have to aim for outer space, or simply find someplace, here, to stand and fight.

It all seems worth the risk to exchange one country or state for another if all you care about is yourself, and you're free to move when things get bad, but when you have children...

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Brazil too...

I am hearing from more and more Brazilians in irc chat curious about Mises.org, libertarianism, free market, austrian economics, etc.. There even seems to be quite a few young bands that have made this there theme.

Most of them tell me they are disillusioned ex-socialists and ex-marxists that have realized the failure of those philosophies.

I am also seeing more and more interested people from eastern europe.

It's going global! :D

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

I wanted more info as well.

Maybe an early investment, etc.

If anyone finds anything out, please share.

I'm headed to Chile next month

Ive been trying to get in contact with someone about GGC but to no avail.

What is going on with the project? They said they were to start making site tours in January. I would like to schedule something for Feb. It would be nice to just get a reply.

How was your trip to Chile?

I know more than a few who have expatiated, some to Chile

Costa Rica, Belize, Mexico, Panama. These are expat destinations for the upper-middle class. Real wealth is going to Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong is back on the map in a big way and above that simply BUYING FARM LAND GLOBALLY.

The rest of us will be lucky if we can buy a nice camper bus to relocate around disasters with. But hey, that might turn out better.

Listen folks LATIN AMERICA HAS BEEN THE PLAYGROUND OF OUR CIA FOR DECADES, our CIA knows every inch of land, every city, our CIA has operatives and networks all over the place. That's not called hiding for starts.

Next up, there are a few exceptions like Belize but these nations have ABSOLUTELY NO REPUTATION FOR POLITICAL STABILITY, they are ALL HIGHLY MILITARIZED, most of them have histories of dictatorship and autocratic rule and support for these regimes is still deeply entrenched. Chile for exacmple, well Augosto Pinochet might have served some justice in jail at the very end of his life but he died the same either way, a sick old man in hospital. AFTER A SERIES OF BRUTAL MASSACRES ESTABLISHED HIM AS DICTATOR FOR HIS EFFECTIVE LIFE. He had a wonderful time. Wealth and power enough for any man.

Happy Belize happens to be next to Miserable Nicarague where highly armed guerilla bands still roam and take white prisoners captive for ransom.

Oh and you can't start and own businesses in most of these nations as an expat. In some you can't be armed. And once they know you can't come back here, you are subject to their notorious corruption and you aren't El Patron anymore. You are a pretty useless person altogether once you run out of money.

So think that over.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Costa Rica's Constitution

Costa Rica's Constitution prohibits a national military. The people are wonderful and the country is beautiful.

Your point about the CIA running south america is true. However, in the event of a collapse, the US will not have the funds to maintain its presence abroad, as the Doc always says. They may try to continue the charade, but the dollar will eventually be worthless, and as a result their agents will have no motivation to continue serving the state. (think soviet union)

i agree that due diligence

i agree that due diligence should of course always be adhered to when contemplating a move, but you are painting with a pretty broad brush with statements like the cia is scouring every inch of 'latin america'....you do realize brazil alone is larger than the continental US right? In my expriences, there is ALOT of upsides to living in SA. Check out brazil, argentina, ecuador in my opinion. peace.

I couldn't live in Ecuador

I couldn't live in Ecuador for one reason...if you are attacked and end up killing your attacker, you can get 8 years in prison.

No thanks.

OK here we go

Brazil, noted for police-organized death squads, extra-judicial killings of dissidents, rounding up and killing of street children.

Argentina. Had so many dissidents rounded up they started dropping them from airplanes far out in the ocean. Massive economic and currency instability.

Ecuador: In what periods has it not been under military dictatorship?

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.


I've got friends living in S. Argentina - a lot of bureaucratic
BS to go through, but they have land (killer view of the Andes)
house and permanent residency and like it pretty well.

Apparently, no one really trusts the government and don't rely
on it to provide for them, so they sound more mentally prepared
for SHTF because they always assume that sometime, to
some extent it *will* happen.

Not perfect, I'm sure, but it sounds like you could do worse.

BTW - for those from the US West Coast - Chile is a whole lot
like it. Minus most of the people and crappy development.

Uruguay sounds cool too - now if they just had mountains...

yeah...then I think about the

yeah...then I think about the British woman given a death sentence for trafficking drugs...I believe it was Malaysia?

She claimed she was threatened violence on her grandkids if she didn't comply? Just think if a dirty cop claimed he found dope on you...off to the firing squad you go.

All of these types of things need to be considered before moving abroad. If you're going to expatriate...don't rush into it. Get to know the country and it's laws first.

its ok, you can stay here too

its ok, you can stay here too if that suits you. Have you ever spent any time in any of those 3 countries in the last decade? I enjoy freedom and I have found more in those places than here currently. Quality of life is important, and there are a lot of upsides to expatriating (of course its easier to do as a single person than as a family unit). Quality food, quality environment, affordable land with plenty of natural resources, music/arts/culture, ...to be honest I'm not in the mood'to compile this repsonse appropriately right now - I just wanted to respond that your statements appear to be a good amount of scare tactics and fear mongering. Expatriating can be good in many ways - juat learn the local language asap and don't go around with an ugly elitist attitude and you will be fine. Not sure what/where you are referring to in regards to not being able to have a business? Capital investment and hiring of locals is always well-received.....and I'll take my chances on being thrown out of an airplane as a dissident in argentina over TSA, monsanto, big pharma, military adventurism, endless taxes, and Vipr teams anyday...

all fair statements to

all fair statements to consider.

One plus is that these poorer countries don't have the resources to watch everything you do...every word you say...to have 30,000 drones flying overhead...the ability to enforce thousands of new ridiculous new laws each year. Costa Rica doesn't even have a military.

Another plus is you can live a lot cheaper.

But, you are absolutely right. Pluses and minuses either way.

Cowards may run away from danger

... I for one will stand and fight right here in the Rocky Mountains.


Jeff Berwick and what army are going to keep the NWO orcs and drones away?

if a Zebra knows a watering

if a Zebra knows a watering hole is filled with Crocs...is he a coward for going over to a different hole without Crocs?

America is an Idea not a country

Why am I bound to a land mass with an incredibly stupid citizenry and a tyrannical government. Why should I continue to participate in an absolutely immoral corrupt society. I want to object and furthermore withdraw the productivity of my labor from a society that is morally degenerate. I dont want part of my productive nature going to build spycenters, kill kids with drones, fund the police state, jail innocent people, occupy foreign lands, etc etc...

lets say I'm in a car headed towards a cliff with 3 other passengers and a driver. I'm the only one pointing out were going to head over a cliff while the others just laugh and call me crazy am I a coward for jumping out right before it goes over?

I've pondered this question...

...and I was curious: it doesn't seem like people who were wise enough to get their families out of Germany while they could during Hitler's rise are looked down on by us as cowards. You know -- the whole Von Trapp family leaving for the US, etc. I often think as well about the Brits sending their children to live with others in the countryside during the air raids. Surely, some of these efforts would be considered prudence rather than mere cowardice?

wolfe's picture

I agree with you.

I do not understand how ending your personal support (taxes) for the murderous regime (US Gov) by withdrawing yourself from the system is in any way cowardice.

It is more than prudence. It is a moral act.

And I too will work in exchange for a nice plot of land to call my own. I've got skills!
