    I've said it before and I'll say it again - people take their **** with them! I know, I moved to China to get away from mine, but it ****ing followed me there!!!

    To the OP...

    You live in New Jersey. No wonder you want to leave the U.S. entirely.

    There are 49 better states to choose from.

    You're not kidding.... This state is appalling. Lets not even go into how alot of the cops are on power trips here... they love to pull over people out of state cuz they know people will just pay it.... things aren't right here..

    Either way I would just love a change of scenery, and this country is slowly going to the dogs anyway. If we keep going the way we are in the USA we will end up a third world country one day... and I for one don't want to be around for it...

    All politicians here are pimps. They just do **** without explaining why they do it... and they listen to nobody... They are mostly 70 year old men who feel they can do anything they want... We need new blood but it will never change. Status quo.

    Police everywhere do that, it's some weird game to them. If you're from out of state anywhere, your chances of getting pulled over are much higher.

    Well if the OP is going to move to a new country Australia is probably the one I'd consider as well. Beautiful country and the people I've always heard to be nice. I don't care what any of you say though the snakes/spiders/sharks/etc...scare the hell out of me.

    This.

    I lived in LA for almost 5 years. Other than the horrible traffic and the expensive alcohol at the bars, it was really nice out there. I met some really cool people who I still stay in contact with to this day.

    You could always come to NZ, Its pretty relaxed, boring and the people are either nice or just don't even talk to you. The Govt is always a laugh and the most interesting news we have on the front page is mostly about penguins on beaches and other mind blowing events, you should see the new public toilets in Wellington that cost upwards of NZ$300,000 that are shaped like a crayfish's tale. Tax dollars dont get wasted around here.

    Being a born and bread Kiwi of 27yrs I can honestly say that's a load of carp. But nice try. :)

    Oh, and don't forget about all the raciest ****s NZ has to offer, and the impossibility of finding good work (with our rapidly decreasing employment rate and what not). Not as bad as some parts of the world for sure, but no matter where you go you will always be faced with the same **** day in day out.

    Yep, honestly Wellington City council is a joke, and there's this hilarious NZ rugby world cup statue next to Civic Square - they out sourced the design to an american artist and got Weta I think to make it, even though there's an art gallery in civic square that has well known (if you keep up with the NZ art scene, I myself don't) NZ artists coming and going all the time which is a bit of a slap in the face if you ask me.

    Note:Chill, nothing against americans - Just doesn't seem right to pay to have another country design your countries icons or whatevers when at the same time your entertainment industry and homegrown talent struggle to get recognized as it is.

    What makes it hard for a place like NZ to have job growth is the fact that it's an island. Here you huge cities, large masses of people... same goes with a place like Britain, Japan or Australia... NZ is just a small place.
