Anyone still calling America “the land of the free” is delusional at best. Things continue to go from bad to worse in the United States, and people are feeling it. So much so, that a record number of Americans no longer want to live in the United States at all.
Once known as the land of opportunity, the U.S. is now more like the land of tax slave and debt slave. Unfortunately, it isn’t the enslavement to debt or the government that is disturbing those the most. It’s dissatisfaction with the current ruling class.
According to Gallup, the recent poll they conducted showed that the 16% of Americans overall who said in 2017 and again in 2018 that they would like to permanently move to another country if they could is higher than the average levels during either the George W. Bush (11%) or the Barack Obama administration (10%).
While Gallup’s World Poll does not ask people about their political leanings, most of the recent surge in Americans’ desire to migrate has come among groups that typically lean Democratic and that have disapproved of Trump’s job performance so far in his presidency: women, young Americans and people in lower-income groups. –Gallup
