Leave America or be a Trump slave.
Chin up though, there is a solution, even if the 20 or so candidates aren’t brave enough to tell you.
The answer is you, right in your hands. Right in the device that your using to read this blog with. You can vote for your selves on all subject that our representatives are supposed to for us. That’s right, with a secure app or website (and yes it does exist, look at what the IRS uses). We can be given the subject to vote on and with the same obligation as we have for Jury Duty. We can share our thoughts by voting and letting Majority rule, just as it was meant to be in the first place. The only difference is there would be little confusion of what the people want and politicians would have little opportunity to fowl it up.
So I watch the 2020 presidential debate and what you know it was a total s— show.
Not that I don’t think that everyone there is not well meaning people. In Fact, all of them have the same point of view even if they don’t want to admit it to themselves: Make the country we live in a healthy and loving place where everyone has the resources to be there best selves and contribute to society in an effective manner. Where each would be judge by the content of their character and not on the color of their skin.
Wait, that sounds familiar.
Oh yah, that’s right it was Martin Luther King who said that. So, even after all those years we are still facing the same obstacles to such a perfect vision of our country. Even after a total of 4 hours none of the Democratic Candidates dared tackle the question of how to get the people first in a bipartisan government that could stop the progression of a well-meaning idea to help advance the people by having a senator or representative delay it for all kinds of reason. Some more selfish then others but all leaving Americans waiting and suffering for the freedoms that make life worth living.
Now we have a Kamala Harris and Bidon popularity T.V. show.
They won’t change anything for us. So, why act like beating up on each other is going to make the difference. Maybe, it’s because they know that if you can’t win on facts the next best thing is emotional. Keep everyone debating and we can glance over the issue that our Government is locked with 2 parties at each other’s throats. Neither allowing for the other to look appealing to the American people. Allowing those who cheat us to profite from this disorganization will learn that there are no consequences for blocking change that the people are begging for. Mark my words, if we don’t do something about this. We will have corporations continue to work together to us our government as a consumer warehouse and make us pay more for less. They will add to our misery and mask it as the cost of doing business. Feeding us false hope of better life but eating away at our futures. Abusing our health with experimental foods and our destroying sanity by over working us with very little time off. I know you can see this already with increased obesity and violent gun shootings in the work place. However, our government has found their footing on listening to special interest groups which setup shop right in the White House. Now those who would profit from harming us can continue without fear of punishment for their wrong doing.
Imagine being given so much respect that corporations beg to be on our good side.
Each of them ratting each other out for corruption and evil deeds that we have no idea they were even doing. Such as poisoning our food, water and even air. Come on, we all suspected that they were doing it. What about this? Not having to work so many hours and still not have enough to do anything fun or even enough to eat. Having vacations that last longer than a damn 2 weeks with a pay that doesn’t make us feel like we shouldn’t have ever went on one. It can be done, it should be and we don’t have it because our voices were stolen from us. It is our right to live not just survive. Unless, of course you find being in debt and worrying about being taxed one way or another on what you earn, even through your retirement as living.
There I said it and you can ignore it if you like but the writing is on the wall.
We see that wrong doing is rewarded in our government and those who were elected to watch out for us have found a love for money by taking advantage of Government loop holes. We are lying to ourselves if we think our last-ditch effort will be found in some person no matter how popular they are. Our last-ditch effort is within us, in our mobile devices, in our voices. However, if you are one that recognizes that change takes time and could be violent, you might want to ready yourselves to live abroad. Especial for the golden years of your retirement. The golden period is something I look forward to like almost everyone. It is a goodbye to active working life and hello to simple enjoyment. However, if you are planning to retire here in the U.S.A; golden might not be how you would describe it.
U.S citizens, an ideal retirement can only be achievable outside of America, and here is why:
You are paying more in taxes, products and services but Getting Less. The average adult American has at the very least one form of debt. That’s not including student loans to pay. Which would be acceptable, however even they are unfair and unbalanced. Way unbalanced. Although there may be some relief with refinancing. Add to that, you have a mortgage or a car loan or some other loan that needs payment at the end of every month. Let’s Add to that the fact your earnings don’t compare to the average cost of living index and your lift with hoping your side job will compensate *. Also let’s not forget that your almighty government will still want you to pay taxes on that. Like most Americans, you are basically working for nothing and there’s another name for that it’s called slavery; you are literally a slave in your own country. Americans all over have been feeling the pinch of the Trump administration. But no matter how much we protest, how loud we cry, our government has chosen not to hear us. The only thing that they are working towards is to close the borders. So, where does that leave us? Slaves stuck in a country with no exit. Do you want to be a Trump slave even in retirement?
Offshore Retirement? Cheer up.
Do not lie to yourself and think when you retire, your pension and savings will be able to give you a comfortable retirement. The cost of living in America is ridiculously high. So why not retire somewhere else where the cost of living is affordable, and you can get more for less? Thanks to the many retirees from U.S. and Europe that have figured out this dilemma. There are over a hundred peaceful countries that you can choose from where the cost of
living is affordable is not a dream but reality. Some of these places are even English speaking like Belize and Guyana. Which are just a few. Places like Thailand, Saigon and Mexico have whole communities of seniors and retirees just living the life. Letting their hardworking years in the States pay off with favorable options like beachfront property and year round good weather. Not only is this a favorable option but offshore retirement is a trend on the rise. With so many expats (People that left their home country to live abroad) doing it already. One only needs to join a Facebook group for a particular expat community to become immersed in the adapted culture. The U.S Social Security Administration reported in 2018 that they are sending cheques to over 700,000 Americans living in foreign countries. Bear in mind that this figure is only for the Americans who are old enough to retire. Imagine how many more Americans have decided to “retire” abroad.
Traveling and Earning
If you have always wanted to explore the world we live in, traveling from one destination to another. Then you can do like a majority of expats (people that have left their home country) and earn income while traveling. How? By partnering with affiliate sites. Affiliate sites let you turn your Blog and landing page where you write about any interest worthy subjects into a vendor’s platform. A vendor will chose these places to sell through and each sale a profit for you. Just choose a niche and let it rip. As far as, setting up a website. There are plenty of places to learn to make a site. However, few as effective as Bluehost. Not to sound like a commercial but Bluehost has everything you need to get you started down the path of website building but maybe you think investing in the Market is more your thing. Well, there is Forex Duality as well as Suretrader (Offshore trading Platform). Suretrader a Bahama based trading company. Has the benefit of not having to obey American rules such as no more than 3 same day trades every 5 business days. They instead allow for unlimited same day trades without the 25,000 dollar requirement. Just be careful because there are a few fees that come with that freedom. Enjoy the freedom of traveling all over and becoming your own boss. How does that sound?*
So, let’s start the journey with an Offshore Bank Account. That’s right and don’t get scared about that. There has been quite a history of Companies and wealthy people setting up offshore accounts. Mostly for tax purposes but also it is an easier way to get your money by setting up an account in the country you wish to live. To give you an idea of how important this might become there is a story from a newly expat/retiree that you should hear. Any average person can open and access an offshore account. The requirements for opening one are similar to those of opening a bank account in the U.S.A. with some noticeable differences but with patience all can be overcome. You’ll need
to furnish your foreign banker with personal information and verified identification documents. Depending
on where you want to open your offshore bank account, you must do thorough research to get information on
their specific requirements. Just as it is with local bank accounts, some are better than others, leaving it up to
you to do your due diligence before making a decision.
We Must Govern Ourselves
The America we have today is not the America that we want. If we allow the state of the country to continue
as it is, then we will be doing an injustice to ourselves and our future generations. Since we cannot remove
the Trump administration, it is us who must leave America, in order to achieve the change we want.
In leaving America, we will still have a say on what happens in the country by voting on important issues
through apps and websites. We will no longer need representatives and senators who ignore us. Most of all,
our actions will combat corruption and the influence of special interest groups currently in America.
Eventually, we will return to a more comfortable and less polluted America.
Do you choose to leave America or to become a Trump slave? The choice is in your hands. But if you want to enjoy your heydays, a safer, more comfortable, and cheaper country awaits you.
