Canada doesn't have the appeal to Americans the way Europe does, but it should. While some Americans (er, Fox News fans) think that Canada is some socialist quagmire complete with death panels, the reality is that Canada is the fifth most economically free country on the planet (the US comes in at a paltry 18th). Also, when the US economy collapsed at the end of the Bush administration, Canada was just fine because, unlike the US, they forbid their financial institutions from engaging in the same dodgy behavior that destroyed large parts of the US financial industry.

And to add insult to injury, thanks to declining earnings for the majority of Americans, the average Canadian is now wealthier than the average American. Ouch. Maybe Canada's worth another look.
