Mark Dain Should I give up on my dream of moving to America? I've been trying for years on end to find a way to move, and I'm starting to wonder if I'm wasting my time. I don't know how to do it. I fail every interview and every other opportunity I see doesn't work for me. For example, you can enlist in the army to become a citizen but you need a green card to do that first. Can't get a green card until, most likely, I have a visa. Can't get a visa until I, most likely, become very rich or get hired. Every opportunity I try to look at doesn't work. What should I do, Sublevel?
🤔 John So many companies are absolutely sociopathic now, and unfortunately US immigration policy is not going to be simple for the next few years. If you really want to move the the USA, I can only recommend continuing to apply for jobs but without investing too much emotional energy into any one. Otherwise, what aspects of the US attract you? I'm quite happy (although still jobless) in Holland.

Mark Dain Yeah, I may need a degree and more certifications before I get hired. I'll just keep trying. I've considered other countries but I can't find any that tick the same boxes the US does. e.g. citizens are able to own firearms most likely due to the importance placed on independence & freedom. I also love the wide open spaces, everyone is friendly, the culture (e.g. country music) makes me happy. I love the (male) accents. I feel connected and proud of the country and that's why I visit as often as I can. My sister lives in Australia, I might try to visit for Christmas and see if it's an option to live there. Alternatively, Canada?

Martijn Sweden has wide open spaces (if you don't count trees), allows you to own firearms relatively easily (get a hunter's licence, maybe take up hunting if you like being out with a gun an waiting for deer/elk?), has funny accents, and as long as the UK hasn't left the EU yet you can just come here

Mark Dain That's awesome, I didn't know Sweden allowed firearms & hunting! Yes, I'd like to get into hunting. Well, the U.K. is leaving at the moment so it may get more complicated soon. Thanks, I'll take a look

👽 Paul Webb Once you're in Canada, it should be a helluva lot less painful to try getting into the US.
