Bribery and stuff like that is in any government regardless of its size. thats not what you have to worry about. its large scale corruption that you need to worry about. and large government prevents thatQuote:
You're thinking of massive organized corruption, Illuminati takeover style. That's not what I'm referring to. I'm talking about the susceptibility to bribery under the guise of lobbying, cronyism, pork barreling, that sort of thing.
I'd move in with my partner =)
I'd move to Japan and stay there for the rest of my life.
I'd move to Maine. Where the climate is so much nicer than where I live, where it's not quite as religious, and where it is much less conservative. Although same-sex marriage still isn't legalized in Maine. Lets hope that changes this election. The thing is that even if it doesn't, it still has a good chance of happening sometime soon. In my state it does not, like ever.
Regarding all the people wanting to move to Japan. Now, I'm here on Anime Forum with you, I get where you're coming from.
However, unless things have changed in the half decade or so since I knew people actually trying to do that (or just visit for an extended time) There's a lot of very active discrimination against non-Japanese. Getting yourself a permanent residence was notoriously brutal. Visas a nightmare. And culturally, well, actually that was a mixed bag. There were good stories too about warm welcomes and friendships formed. But you're also going to be dealing with some straight up racism you gaijin.
So maybe think twice before trying that leap.
I'm actually surprised to find out that the US is actually, overwhelmingly, where the most people worldwide would want to move.
I'll be honest, that was a little surprising at first. But digging around in the poll I do know quite a few Chinese and Indians that have come over for college and gone on to be very successful here, so those stories probably get transmitted back home.
If I did move somewhere like that though I just know I'd have to make some serious efforts to keep the wife entertained though.
I wouldn't move, I do quite like the city, lots of cool stuff goes on here and in the cities around me. Being a large city we have our fair share of shady areas but I'll take the good with the bad. so currently no I wouldn't move, now some long adventures cross country might be nice on the other hand.
LOL I've only just moved as I'm at college now, but I would love to live in Canada in the future :D
I'd move in with my GF :> Though I heard it takes like 3 years to get citizenship in the US (She's in New York).
If not that, out west in British Columbia, it's so beautiful and nice there <3
Although seriously, I don't think there's any reason you couldn't go on a sweet vacation down there, then maybe think about if that's where you'd actually like to be after they don't let you into a couple places. Well, and maybe try showing up at a couple realtors and pretend you're looking to buy a home and see what happens.
Maybe times will have changed by the time you head over there.
If I had to move, I would probably go to Japan or Wales. Sweeden would probably be a close 3rd place I would like to visit.
i mean i love were i live but i'm not always there cause i travel alot........hmmm
i'll say move to Italy say hi to my grandma and visit my boyfriends grave....................
Funny thing, I'm actually working on saving enough money to move to the UK and attend a college.
My family isn't willing to help with this endeavour, they'd rather I stay in America, so I'm paying all on my own.
But, I've always wanted to live in Japan, it's just too expensive. :rolleyes:
I would move to a southern state in the U.S or Mexico. I can't stand the cold temperature in the winter here. -_-
Hm. Anywhere but here would be good.
New New New York
the underground shelters on the moon
I have a choice.
I would possibly want to move to Tokyo or London in the future, but I am quite content living in New Zealand at the moment :)
Well sitting in one position behind the PC isn't that great. I hope ill get the choice.
I probably would move, given the choice, but only really because I'd eventually get bored of staying in one place.
Given the choice, I'd rather live in a motor-home! First stop: Japan, of course! ^ ^
