OK, so a very strange facebook conversation I'm having has inspired me to ask. If the government suddenly did something that you found SO AWFUL you didn't know how you could live somewhere that this thing was true (whatever it is...you come up with your own scenario) could you actually picture yourself MOVING? (And by moving I mean countries.)

Yes, I could see myself moving.
Have thought about it a few times over the last few years but then I realize no country is safe from stupid leadership and worldly economical ickiness so I do what I can where Im at.

Maybe... but it would have to be REEEEAAAALLLLLLLLY bad, like if the government suddenly said that women were no longer permitted to leave their homes or something crazy like that. Also, I honestly have no idea where we would move. Australia, maybe?

I will say that we have made choices about which state to live in based on state governments, though.

Hillarie, that was exactly my thought on it. And also, moving is not easy. I mean obviously there are choices that are made that might make you flee. See Germany early 1940s for people who weren't "right" for their new leadership. However, I am sure that for those who left it was not an easy choice and their lives were in danger.
