I know some are ademant...'I will not leave my country'. And having been to some places out of this country, I can say that we have so much that makes this country great. In addition, the best man from my wedding lives in Central America. He's doing very well there. However when the US faulters, he feels it there and is vulnerable to the US economy.

If you believe the US is facing an economic collapse, where could you go where you can earn a living, raise a family, possess firearms for self protection, and enjoy a good buffer from an economic collapse from the US?

Has anyone considered this? Where else? I cannot think of a country that is well buffered from a US economic collapse.
I don't think there is anywhere else that won't be affected by our collapse. Greece has lied about their debt and is now reporting it as double. The Eurozone is starting to experience inflation while the ECB (European Central bank) has taken on another round of money printing as has Japan and as has the US. The western world is trying to inflate their monetary problems away.
People in third world countries are more attuned to survival and won't be hit as hard as we will be but I think I would rather weather the collapse in the US or perhaps Canada.

Good luck with that.

America is worth staying in, trust me. Even an economically weakened America beats most anywhere else in the world.

PS - You can dismiss my opinion if you since I don't buy into the complete collapse theories. Sure we have some hard times coming but I don't see a meltdown of the scale some here talk about.

The OP said "If you believe in an economic collapse" - I don't. I thik it is bad and will get worse, especially if we actually tangle with Iran....

But I don't see the economy ever getting so bad that I will tuck my tail and flee to another country.

Oh and conversely, too much Ramen and not enough Rambo gets you just as dead. - not that I am a rambo type, but a healthy balance is key to most things.

Even during the worst of times there are those who will thrive, economically. I would do my best to take advantage of the situation.

I could live on Vancouver Island (BC).

Granted I'd have to dump most of my firearms as they probably are not importable into Canada.
