An initial blurb about ex-Governor Jesse Ventura's lawsuit against the TSA and their molestive groping procedures we've all had blasted from every media source led me to investigate what it is he's planning to do about it. It appears, according to Alex Jones, that if his lawsuit fails to uphold his constitutional right to freely travel the country without unreasonable search and seizure by the TSA that Mr. Ventura will expatriate and become a citizen of Mexico.
He talked of all the freedoms we're losing as a country and how other places such as Mexico have so much to offer at a much lower cost of living. I started to wonder if I could even muster the courage to move my entire family out of the only country we've come to know and love. The only country Wifey and I have ever seen, except for a brief trip she took to Australia in high school.
The idea of expatriation somehow filtered in to my navigation through the internet and I began to find a series of other Americans whom have left their country. I frequent the blog of Lew Rockwell and sure enough, he too had an article titled "Escape from America". In this article, the author realized as he wandered his favorite blog rolls that all their respective authors were also expatriates. I began to reflect and realize that some of the people I had become familiar with had also left the USA. Like Art Bell who moved to Manila and was able to continue his popular radio show from home.
Is this the trick I'm missing? Find out a way to make a living utilizing a mobile environment (blogging, radio, etc) and move somewhere that the government can't reach you? Maybe. Or maybe it would be just as smart to simply move away from the big city far enough that I can still breathe fresh air and hear a little peace and quiet from time to time. I can supplement my amateur attempts to farm for my family with a few days of work at a local hospital each week until I figure out how to be 100% self sufficient. I'm not ready to throw in the towel on America.

The best thing about driving around in my orange Jeep is that 99% of other Jeep drivers wave as they pass. I want to find a town where everyone waves. Am I asking to much? Friendly, courteous people, fresh air and open land with a small hospital looking for a hardworking family man trained in multiple Radiology modalities.
I feel like this is turning into a resume write up. Time for a break. Think I'll take a little drive around the block in my Jeep. That always puts a smile on my face.
Have you thought of leaving America?
