It’s just an option I hadn’t really explored and thought that it might be worth looking into. Both of my Grandfathers served in WWII and it pains me to think about leaving behind so much hard work and sacrifice by many men braver and greater than I.
Gun control is of course a big problem with many nations, and about 80% are eliminated right there for me.
I totally understand the sentiment of not leaving home, and I am unlikely to leave for the simple fact that I would have one hell of a time convincing other members of my group to just up and leave.
I have my own concerns about just why the United States may be among the worst places to be in the future, but i shall keep them to myself for the time being. Thanks for the input and contributions for those who added them!
