Here's what I'm looking for:

-Very low taxes
-No entitlement or welfare programs
-Strong rights (basically the constitution minus the supreme courts interpretation)
-Very business friendly
-Language isn't important

The best match I've came up with so far is Hong Kong, but it's too hot and too close to China. I'd prefer a place with a nice beach, maybe Cuba if they became capitalists.

Worldly atoters what alternatives are there to America?

Siberia


In all seriousness, Scandinavia is a great area.

Singapore (but there is a huge gap between upper and lower class <I am not sure about taxes> ), Canada (but they have a socialist healthcare)...

Basically, you can't have everything you want, otherwise it would be a Utopia.

Yes, the U.S. is easy to abuse, even if you're not a citizen.
Which is probably why the OP was so specific about no welfare and such.

Sounds like you just answered your own question. Now you just have to wait for a time machine.

are you trying to derail my thread?

1905 represents most closely the country I'd like to be a part of and I dont have a flux compassitor to get there.
