As an American, I have to agree. There has been an exodus of emigrants to Canada lately as well. The quality of life in the U.S. is just not there anymore, and the country is not as healthy as it used to be. Many companies are dropping health care, and a basic health insurance policy costs (ironically) an arm and a leg. The price of real estate is unreasonable as well. I myself have been thinking about moving up North for a while.
