    It’s time to re-read Atlas Shrugged.
    That might explain why those who can leave are leaving.

    Thank you, Floyd for your thoughts on what America once was and what it has become today.

    I won’t be running to the border either because I still feel there is some hope left to turn America back and restore what has been taken from us by those misfits in Washington. It’s going to take men and women of courage to lead us out of this destructive force that is ripping the heart out of our country. The November elections will be an indicator as to what path the politicians will take. If nothing changes then I fear we’re done.

    As long as our government allows, 30 million ILLEGALS (and growing by the thousands each day), America will NEVER be the way it was when us old-timers were growing up. Our government has allowed millions of ILLEGALS to take good jobs away from American citizens. The government is paying these ILLEGALS from our Social Security fund, giving them food stamps, free homes and health care, as well as drivers licenses and free schooling. Our government LOVES ILLEGALS, they wish American citizens would leave our country, by the millions.

    I’ve already made plans to retire in the Philippines.
    Yes, lower housing prices, lower cost of living, but the best part is that the Filipino people actually like Americans, even if Bill Clinton sold them out!
    My wife, who is from the Philippines, has already got property there, and for less than $100K I’ll be able to live well overlooking a beautiful ocean!

    I too remember the Constitutional Republic of The United States of America. I too long for those days to return and an end to the communism plaguing our nation. I am not able to relocate to another country, and probably wouldn’t if I could. No, I will stay and fight.

    Democracy with it’s social agenda (aka welfare) is destroying our Great Republic, along with democrats who promote the social agenda. Now we have a Muslim President doing a great job of destroying America, and when his term of office is up our national debt will be about 20 trillion. Just how will the future generation handle all that debt? We need to elect someone with the intelligence to save America from financial disaster. We cannot continue to give the Country away.

    Mr Jack and everyone else who are so quick to blame the black president for all the BS this country has become seem to have forgotten that U.S. had a surplus when Clinton left office and Bush Jr turned it into trillions in deficit within months of being in office. Obama inherited the mess – he didn’t create it. But of course he’s black and Democrat so none of you saw what Republicans did to the country because you had your heads stuck in a “hole”, like ostriches. You all must finally be feeling the pains of the Republican wrath so you would see the black president, currently in power as the cause when it’s really redneck Republicans.
    I can’t wait to see what you will all say when a Republican becomes the next president…
    “Duuuhhh, he’s doing a great job with the economy, at least our kids can get jobs to help pay the bills in the house and struggle to pay their outrageous Student Loans”.

    My point is: whether it’s Democrat or Republican, black or white, it’s business as usual in Washington. The U.S. government has become the “Legalized Mafia”, where they make their demands on the tax paying citizens who have lost any rights they once had even in the constitution. Look around you. Think back 20 or 30 years ago… What’s the difference? Things have changed in the U.S. It’s not for the better, and it’s not the black president causing it. It’s the rich and powerful who con-trol$ government these days.
    AAAAA, why bother, it’s clear that you’re all so blinded by your patriotism that the facts are in your face and you don’t see it! YOU NO LONGER HAVE FREEDOM IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY!
    And that’s why I’m leaving. It’s the only freedom I’ve got left… to leave!

    Didn’t realize Obama was actually “black”. Actually Ben Carson (who IS actually FULL black) would be a good candidate to clean up Obama’s cowardly leadership. Maybe listen to Alonzo Rachel’s (who is also full black) video on YouTube titled “The Reasons Democrats are The Party of Slavery & Victimization”. Lot of eye-opening info on there that I dare you to disprove. Here ya go, I will make it easy for you: https://youtu.be/F7ZJv8HCv3A

    I’m an older American. I did not like Reagan at all. I am not a Democrat. I would say that I’m a conservative. A conservative that is looking for someone to lead a revolution against the government that has become corrupt to the very core. I want Congress and the Senate to be tried for treason in a military court. Our criminal justice and courts are a late-night television joke. The justice system is set up to make millionaires out of themselves. There is no justice in America unless you have very deep pockets or are politically connected. Our news media will not print the truth. The fifth estate’s is dead. I guess what do I want from a country that was born in deceit and lies and stealing the very land that you claim to love. You cannot destroy fast enough with your stripmining and fracking.

    From what I have learned you would have to give up your American nationality and become a Mexican? To own water front property there, as to own property in Mexico on the water front you have to be Mexican, and to own any other property there, you have to have a Mexican on the deed with your name! Like the song says, you never see them heading the other way!

    I would stay and fight but the government as it is now and will be in the future is forcing me to leave. I was born here, my father served in WWII for 8 years and he would be ashamed of what this country has become; what he fought for and lived for and died for. The government today is all for the money in each pocket of the politicians that run it. And all the ILLEGALS (I think the word says it all) that are getting all the hand outs and services without working or even being an AMERICAN. It seems anyone can come to AMERICA. Try going to another Country with nothing and see all that country has to give you to live there on their dime.

    I was born here in 1950, to parents of the “Greatest Generation”. I grew up loving this great nation and am grieved at the loss of what my father fought for in the South Pacific. I will not leave this great nation, even though it has left me. I will stay and fight and teach my grandchildren the true history of our fore-fathers so that one day she may be the God-fearing nation she once was!

    Ronald Reagan – what a great man and a great era to have been part of when he was president.
    America is in the hands of our children and grandchildren now. We still have our input into the direction of the country but the time to talk was really during their developmental years.
    The public school system will have to change now to make a difference. Many school teachers have been educated into the progressive socialist structure, and those children who have not been taught traditional values at home will likely never have them, and that number is growing all the time.

    Reagan was the one who destroyed America. Economic stratification began to increase, the FCC was gutted, unions which built this country were demonized and inflation was out of control. As for the article, it’s trying to plug a right wing circle into a square of delusion. SHAMEFUL.

    It was 45 million illegal aliens about ten years back. More than that now. As for leaving the U.S., thought about it. Too much family here, including my parents. I live in a democrat state next to the coast. You can buy beach front property for 250k cash because no one will insure it for a mortgage. Newly re-zoned for “tsunami zone”. Even the dollar store went out of business. Slick Willy destroyed most all of our industries when he signed NAFTA. It’s been down ever since.

    I came to USA as a Foreign Student in 1976. I married a US citizen, became one and registered to vote (R). Never wealthy, worked hard, and finally semi-retired. SS is my only income, but I am in USA as a legal resident. Now I am so disgusted at the illegals, with free EVERYTHING. My opinion is that some people in high places are committed to destroy America and the principle for what it stands. The plan includes the growing of radical Muslims, Mexicans mixed with other Central Americans, and Pakistanis, Afghans, Yemenis, etc, blacks from Africa with contagious diseases, low IQ , 100% illiterates, etc. In USA they have plenty of cash in hand every month to live on. Free housing, food, school, and a car (usually a SUV) because they keep breeding like rats, no English. I am MAD. But there is nothing we can do anymore. The damming down of America .

    Do you remember what they used to say to immigrants who are unhappy here?

    Pat Hickham Reply:

    Nancy,
    you are a hypocrite and a racist. You should go back to the country you came from. You came here to get educated “legally” and married a US citizen so you can stay here. According to your logic the natives can say : these immigrants can here, took our land, killed our people, spread deseases and multiplied like rats. Yes Nancy, if you have children then you are the same rat that you are calling others. You should educate yourself on why this repitition in history occurs.
    The Greeks, Romans, Ottomans, Russians, British and now the Americans tried the same thing. Spread their influence and culture through wars and culture. But the reality is that its a 2 way street. When you push something down someones throat, there is a rush of people coming back to mothership. I bet you came from a country that there is a huge influence of american culture and values. That is why you decided to come to the “mothership” and the reason for its distruction. You are now just as guilty and as much of a redneck as Floyd Brown

    Forgot to mention — be dam’ glad the (R)s didn’t win in 1932; there’d be no SS, and you (and I) would be starving. The new Congress may yet get to take it away.

    Wow! This is my first time on this comment forum. I sense a lot of anger. I happen to be a Reagan area military veteran. Yes he was loved for his effort to make us the only superpower in the world, but turning on the needy and poor was a definate step in the wrong direction. America needs to step up to the plate and conquer the jobs war. Countries that manufacture and create new industries with good jobs will be the big winners. The arguement of making life easy for illegals who do not contribute is valid and our immigration policy needs serious revisions but politics stand in the way. I support President Obama if he acts alone at least we will have a direction to start. We have little to work with now. No action is not the answer. We need to act now one way or the other!

    I find it very interesting to see even so many US citizens are leaving the US there are so many people from other countries still immigrating to US.

    [Reply]

    chris Reply:

    Those who are coming in are unskilled and uneducated poor people, while those who are leaving are skilled educated wealthy people. It is nothing to do with the right wing partisan rhetoric spewed in the article and everything to do with money. It’s unfettered capitalism run amok, which is a product of republican policies.

    I served in Operation Iraqi Freedom 1 (Feb’03–Nov’03) and I’m done… I’ve had enough. No more ties to this country; we are on a decline to extreme fascism… looking to Norway, Sweden, Denmark, or Australia! Just need to convince my wife…

    I moved to Sweden and I feel like I live in an utopian society. It’s INCREDIBLE. Tell your wife all the statistics of the Nordic Countries… THAT alone is like describing only the candle on a chocolate cake… wait until you taste it. Living in the US is like eating crackers and saying “this is good enough”… when the cake is just across the table. Dig in!
