    The thought of being somewhere fresh, new, and completely explorable is very alluring to me. But I do not think I would ever leave the United States permanently because I love this country, flaws and all.

    The Usa Is Not For Me

    I really feel I'm better off somewhere else. The government is all a giant mess, & I never feel all too happy or safe here. I would rather live in some "oppressive" third world than the greatest damn country on the planet! That's one other thing that gets me, The US is so self...
