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?
Sojourner I don't want to be a wet blanket, but the way things are going here, you may be very glad not to get in.

Mark Dain Can you elaborate on "the way things are going"? I've never been worried about the current administration. It seems nobody ever asks me how I feel, they just assert I'll be making a mistake if I move as they don't like the president. I can't change what my dream is, all I can do is either ignore/suppress it and feel unauthentic and miserable or fight to accomplish it and at the very least be glad I tried.

Sojourner The current administration seems to simply be continuing many of the policies of previous administrations. The trend seems to be more war and continuing economic policies. Looking at the history of other countries following similar trends leads me to believe you might much happier elsewhere in the coming years.

Mark Dain More war? That's honestly news to me, I've not seen much happening, other than the DPRK launching missiles. I already said I'd rather take the risk and be glad I actually tried as the alternative is I moan about how miserable and unhappy I am where I live. Because that's all people have for me when I ask them "ok, if I give up, what should I do instead", they just shrug and don't know. Unless you have a concrete solution to my ongoing pain I have being here, then please stop with the drive-by unsolicited advice.

👽 Paul Webb As much as I dislike virtually everything about the current president, I like that his racist travel bans were blocked by the Supreme Court. Cooler heads prevail so even though leadership is fucked, the checks and balances that ensure things don't implode are still rocking.
