    ONE AND A HALF MILLION U.S. HOUSEHOLDS are preparing to move out of the U.S. The vast majority of émigrés are in their 20s, 30s and 40s. And some may never return.
    No, we are not talking about the next major deployment of National Guard units to the Middle East. In fact, none of the emigrants are government workers or corporate employees leaving for temporary overseas assignments. This is a group of malcontents and adventurers. They consist entirely of private citizens and their families packing up and leaving the good ol’ USA solely at their own initiative.
    This news comes from a Zogby International poll of 115,000 Americans conducted over the past two years. Bob Adams, CEO of New Global Initiatives, commissioned the poll when he realized that no reliable database tracks the movement of Americans out of the country.

    A recent Barron’s article, written by Bob Adams, breaks down the Zogby/New Global Initiatives data as follows:
    1.6 million (U.S. households) have already made the decision to leave
    1.8 million are seriously considering and likely to leave
    7.7 million are somewhat serious about leaving and may do so
    3 million are seriously considering purchase of non-U.S. property
    10 million are somewhat serious about purchase of non-U.S. property
    Adding it all up, some 10% of all U.S. households are looking to leave the country, while another 11% are considering living outside the U.S. at least part time.
    “That Can’t Be Right”
    “Incredulous” is the word that best describes the reaction of people when they hear Adams’ conclusions. I brought the subject up the other night while eating barbeque and drinking beer with some American business people I know here in Bangkok. Even this well-traveled group greeted the poll results with skepticism. They asked, “How did he get this data? Who did they inter

    You go where there is opportunity.
    That's one of the biggest lessons I have learned in my life.

    If the opportunity is some place else, go to it.

    True!

    Now that you mention it and when i come to think about what I've heard over the years on how Americans have left and are living in other parts of the world, this is mindblowing in that no real reports reveal this. It is under reported.

    There have been many movie stars that have left and have gone to South Africa for one reason or another...they say to make movies...but I believe they are buying up property. the actress that played, hart to hart, I think she relocated to live in Egypt. Then Diana Ross I think she lived in Switzerland and still might be there. Then Michele Bauchmann was just reported to have become European citizen, Switzerland. I think there is a flood though of immigrants and that may be one major reason why White people are leaving because they knew this was going to happen and they knew the reasons behind it, and other reasons as to why they are fleeing from America and all the while, trying to keep it hush hush. They know what prophecy says about America...and they got their riches and think they can now go back to the east or Europe and escape the dangers to come...meanwhile many unsuspecting immigrants are coming to what they see as nothing short of 'heaven' and fulfilling life long fantasies...and laughing at us 'dumb ole ungrateful Negroes'...meanwhile they don't see that they are being set up too. We need to look at script and see a bigger governmental picture...

    this government has been setting up in the east and middle east and africa since the 1990s for a reason...

    Whether it is going to be truth or not, in what they believe will happen or not, we still need to understand motives and plans and behaviors of the government. I believe that knowledge is power.

    Why Do People Emigrate?
    Why do people leave home for strange foreign lands? While a handful might claim to leave for political or religious reasons, most seek greater economic opportunity. All of my grandparents emigrated from Germany or Lithuania in the early 1900s. My wife’s Chinese grandparents emigrated from China to Siam in the same generation. None came because of a burning desire to be “free.” They all came because they wanted to make more money and thus enjoy a better life.
    Google the word “emigration,” and you’ll mostly get sites that detail the emigration from Europe to the U.S. in the 19th and early 20th century. Google “American emigration” and you get a link to Adams’ New Global Initiatives Web site and not much else. Most economic-oriented sites only discuss the effects of legal and illegal immigration into the U.S. It’s hard to find any thoughts about the economic, political and demographic effects of younger Americans leaving for greener pastures overseas.
    “Talk About Something No One’s Talking About”— Erin Burnett, CNBC anchor
    CNBC anchor Erin Burnett recently interviewed Adams. “In the last 10 years, the amount of pasture accessible to Americans has greatly increased, and it’s a lot greener than it ever was,” said Adams. A replay of this interview is available on the New Global Initiatives Web site. Adams thinks emigrants can help the U.S. economically by introducing American consumer products and services into new markets. One reason Adams commissioned the Zogby survey was to create a data source that he might market to companies interested in selling to overseas Americans.
