USA Concerns?
[Return to Topics]

I read a lot of posts at different sites on the internet. Lately, I noticed a lot of concern where the USA is headed. I suspect we will have our freedom in the future & make a living.

If I am forced to leave somehow, then I'll move! Perhaps I'll 'homestead it' in British Columbia say half way up the Pacific coast. Still managable weather no worst than upper MI (UP). Heck, perhaps BC will be part of the US, who knows. There will be areas of opportunity. Nothing different than our forefathers did many years ago.

I'm sorry but move to Canada? No way. Socialized medicene, high taxes, snobby attitudes about Americans, not to mention the huge inferiority complex that comes from living next door to the most powerful nation on earth and there you sit with an Armed Forces smaller than New Zealand's. Been there several times, particularly Vancouver. That city is growing because of China taking over Hong Kong. Most of the new arrivals are Asian. Now that they have their citizens dependent on the socialized structure they are starting the same process England did to confiscate firearms.
Canada, move there it you want to, but rest assured most of us will stay here and keep you protected.

I'm a media monitor up here in Alberta and have heard numerous stories all over radio,television, newspaper regarding Americans looking at moving to Canada. Seems to be a kind of trend recently. Alberta's good if you're looking for jobs, the land can be quite expensive around the Rockies though, north not so bad, and the government, to me, is more conservative compared to all the other provinces.

Oh how many times I have thought how nice it would be to move to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Quebec. The whole of Canada is a huge beautiful place that is mostly empty. I could live there and be very happy.

Sorry to tell you les but I live in nova scotia and I can tell you empty spaces are few and far between here.

hi sara you live in a beautiful part of the world there ,someday i hope to be able to return home and live out the rest of my life.

Nice to hear from you. It is beautiful here. What do you miss the most?
I have often thought about leaving but could never do it.It is hard to find a job here though,many employers are hiring part time employees so that they do not have to provide benefits etc. Many families work several jobs just to make a go of it.

i don,t know i guess i just miss home , everything , ive been gone for along time but always thought of it as home , and in the past few years we had to take mom n dads ashes back to bury with my sister, so that brought things up again , all my relations are back there some in ont. but none any farther west, my childhood memories i guess , i can still remember most everything and when i talk to my brother who still lives there he laughs and says you know this place better than me,like the old sayin goes , never know what you got till it,s gone,my advice to anybody thinking of leavin there is don,t . stay home

i was born in nova scotia Les and your right , that part of the world is GODs country, just wasn,t much work there , had to leave and go where the work was to make a living.

Yup. I understand that the Maritimes are losing population. I haven't seen much of NS but have been all around NB and a lot of PEI.
Maybe when I retire.
I loved PEI but the mosquitoes were so rugged they'd stand right up to a 30 MPH wind. And, they were very numerous :(

the martimes (n.s.n.b p.e.i.)are alot like and often compared to the new england states , in their way of life and the warm friendly people.

Like Toolman said.In that beautiful country there was not much work there.Ofcourse I believe there was plenty of work as there is everywhere..But not a very good price for work.I move to the country now and then but return to the edge of a big city because of a need for more money.The best thing I can think of is a factory in the country to sell things online.

come on up jimbob and welcome, but no i don,t think we,ll be a part of the USA any time soon, nothing against the USA but we are pretty happy with what we have despite all the bi**hing, but if you want to be like your forefathers you better hurry seems like alot of people have the same idea, vancouver is the thrid largest city in canada,and you better have lots of money if you want property on the coast or pretty much anywheres in B.C.these days it would 87 i paid 20000 for my place today its assessed at 350000 nice if you want to sell but hard if you want to stay and have to pay the tax,one word for it i guess would be TOURISM. but it is a nice place B.C.

I need about 60 miles or more off the beaten path to avoid those taxes. I was born in Sarnia, Ont.

It is much less difficult to get along with indians as our forefathers did than beauricrats who want to regulate us into slavery.BC is part of Canada.Check the regualations book . I know a guy in Toronto who can not light a fire outdoors to cook fish.

yabut clod toronto here is like your new york city is there , now you understand ? most places we still can do pretty much what we want or can get away with , but having said that they do have a fireban on for most parts of B.C. at least the southern half , because of the fire danger,and belive me it,s justified as conditions here are bad 100f heat,very high winds and no moisture at all .

I like Canada but sure don't like Canadian gun laws. Going into Sask a couple of years ago and they saw an NRA decal on my bumper and nearly dis-assembled my truck. I haven't been back since.
