So if it is that difficult to cross other country’s borders, why does the US just allow it like we do? I am interested because of this:

If something happens here in the US then we have little chance of a reciprocated type allowance. If we go south, we will be facing a highly probable 2 years in prison. If we go north, then??? I know that they are not kind to people that don’t tow the taxes line just from articles I have read. Cuba – not likely. Haiti – again, not likely. Bahamas or run to Belize? Seriously, what would our chances be other than slim and none?

After reading the posts, it seems that most people stayed put or got jacked after leaving too late. I wonder what would have happened if people left earlier and before everything completely broke down.
