U.S. Preppers should think twice about living in other countries

See also

Many U.S. preppers are disenchanted with life in the this country and are fearful that conditions will only get worse here. Thus, many preppers are moving to other countries. Those disenchanted preppers should keep in mind the old saying, “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t know.”

There are many reasons to stay in this country and use our democratic procedures to improve it. The U.S. is still the best country to live in because:

1. Culture shock can be a negative experience.

2. U.S. Citizens are disliked in many countries because of our lack of knowledge about the local languages and customs.

3. Other countries are more likely than the U.S. to become unstable, or even dangerous, especially if U.S. embassies are forced to draw down their staff or to close their embassies completely.

4. Gun restrictions in many foreign countries often are stricter than in the U.S.

5. Christians are persecuted in many foreign countries.

6. U.S. citizens living in other countries often are more wealthy than their foreign neighbors, and their conspicuous consumption and ignorance of the local criminal culture often cause them to become victims of crimes

7. Terrorist attacks are more likely against U. S. citizens living in other countries.

8. The danger of U.S. Citizens being kidnapped is more likely in other countries.

9. Hospitals and medical facilities in many other countries are more likely to have fewer opportunities to communicate in English and are more likely to be substandard in quality.

10. Most U.S. health plans, including medicare, will not cover Americans living abroad.

11. Some drugs, such as marijuana, that are legal in parts of the U.S. can result in years of prison incarceration in some foreign countries.

12. It can be harder to find jobs in other countries because U.S. citizens may have limited foreign language skills, and they also cannot network with extended family members, friends, former work associates or former members of clubs and organizations the U.S. citizen belonged to before going overseas.
