Should the other countries deny American immigration?
What happens when the Americans start gaining a majority and want to start turning the new country into another shithole?
;)
They should if the Americans come over illegally, demanding people learn English and to receive .gov bennies without paying taxes.

Now, if they come over and register according to the laws of said country, pay all proper taxes, assimilate into the local culture, and follow the laws of the land I don't see what the issue would be.

I've noticed a lot of posters here have a problem recognizing when hypocrisy is being pointed out.
It's as hard to detect as sarcasm

Heh. Righties fantasizing about leaving the US because it's going to pot on account of ebil soshulism, moving to other countries that have even more of the ebil soshulism.

Up next, raving about delusional libruhls.

I did not know this

If its so bad, Im sure one of the millions of people trying to get in the US will trade places with you. You should start a website where US citizens that aren't happy living here can change lives with people that wait decades on lists to get in. Im sure it will go viral
Exactly.

If you're so anti-American, feel free to use your rights as a free person to freely get your sad, silly ass on a plane and pursue happiness elsewhere.

With Independence celebrations still echoing from yesterday, the OP boots a kick to the nads of all the patriots and citizens who fought and stll fight for our freedoms and way of life.

They got the pot here in California and its been spreading like wild fire. But once the pot reaches my neighborhood I'm out!

Everyone jokes and talks about zombies but really the next big plague will be the pot. The pot is worse than zombies because I heard they eat all your food and keep your couch warm.

I LIKE MY COUCHES COLD!! MOTHER FUCKERS! DO YOU HEAR ME? COLD!!

Acutally Hong Kong tied for fourth. We're seventh. NZ came in first. Don't plan on moving but when HK comes in three places above Obamanation, gotta wonder.

Edit as I got that wrong. HK came in third.

That's just the "economic freedom" index, correct?

What about the rest of it?

HK is a country? Really?

The new nexus of the Pot epidemic is right here in Colorado! I mean, anybody can grow their own pot and the local authorities can't do anything about it! The Horror!

Where the fuck is Big Brother when you need him, anyway?

Nope. It includes personal freedoms. HK is not a whole nation but it's semi autonimous and has a substantial population. There are nations proper who are less. . The thing I liked is that the metric measured freedom not democracy. The latter may or may not lead to longer term freedom, but I suggest a cursory read of the Egyptian riot thread will show how freedom is secondary to democracy in the eyes of some. I'd argue that if democracy takes away liberty then we'd be better off without it.

No link, of course. Your last sentence is perhaps some of the most exquisite doublespeak ever uttered, btw. In our modern world, freedom w/o democracy is possible only in the minds of fools. The frontier closed over 100 years ago, in case you hadn't noticed.
