Economic (ie dollar) collapse or taxes so high they become unbearable.  Or they have a  draft for war and they draft above age 35.

Canada.

If a seastead were to be successfully created that offered comfortable living and steady pay. I'd go there.

I entertain thoughts of emmigration from time to time, but nothing serious.

I would leave the country if I felt one of the following situations were imminent:

1) National martial law.  Something far more tyrannical than the police state we have now.

2) Socialization or communization of all property.

3) Taxes or regulation so onerous that the quality of life dropped to a level far below that to which I am accustomed.

4) Implementation of a draft or other national service.  I'm in the military now (I used to be a rank and file republican), but I don't ever want my children to be drafted as fodder for the state.

I wish I could say that I'd be willing to leave for lesser infringements to my liberty, but the fact is that it would be very hard to uproot my family and leave my property, friends and all that we know behind.  I don't know where I'd go.  Perhaps New Zealand?  It would be nice if Alaska, Montana or some other or group of states seceded, then I would go there.

If Texas manages to secede.

Other than that there's no point. It's the same or worse everywhere else.

Trends. Sooner than later, the Chinese will have more freedoms than the Americans.

It's pretty funny.  The only other country I am a citizen of has universal healthcare and heavy taxation (Spain).  I guess I'm screwed.

If you are wealthy, you can move to Singapore.
