I have found a place to run from the tryany of our government when the time is right. The catch is it's deep in Canada and I am not a Canadian. How does one go about getting citizenship? Should I just wait for our countries to merge as one or is there a way outside of marrigae to become a Canadian? I am fond of the wife I have now, so that out.

Immigrating to Canada

Immigrating to Canada permanently is an exciting opportunity. However, there are several things you should consider before you apply to be a permanent resident.

I don't know about the legalities, but Canada is basically a Socialist country. The Canuks used to come down to the US for Med treatment. Hard to own guns. And 1/2 the friggin country is frogs. You might consider Idaho!

Idaho..
Anyway, the place I can go to is a cabin on a lake in the middle of no were. I don't care what the countries political veiws are, it's just a place that will sustain life by it's self and my family and close friends can live from the land.
Funny you would mention canadian gun laws. They passed a bill lastweek that over wrote all the previous gun laws and guns are all good there now. not sure I could get any of mine from the US up there however.

I see a few misconceptions here that need to be cleared up. Canada is not a socialist country, at the moment we have a very conservitive govt in place( way more to the right than the current obama administration ). Our current govt only has a minority power situation with a socialist oposition nipping at its heels though. 1/2 the country is not french, not even close,we have a big french population in Quebec with pockets in New Brunswick, I live out west and there are no frogs out here, Canada is a big place. Our gun laws might be a little stricter than some states but it is not hard to own guns at all, as long as you are not a convicted felon it is actually very easy. I can buy all manners of assault rifles and handguns, many people own guns in Canada. It is a bit af a pain in the ass to get guns across the border, but thousands of Americans come up here and hunt every year ( i used to be a guide and the majority of my clients were Americans ). It was the American govt that pushed for tighter restrictions both ways after 911. As far as citizenship goes, i think that would be very tough without getting married to a Canadian, we do seem to let all the criminals from 3rd world countries come here though. As far as a survival retreat location, Canada cant be beat. People dont realize just how vast and unpopulated Canada, i hunt a half hr drive from my house and you will never see another soul, lots of game. I have lived in Canada and the states ( i have dual citizenship ), my wife is from Idaho, in these times especially, Canada would be my choice. Easy to make a good living, Govt has no debt and we still have low unemployment. I'am not bashing the U.S, just stating some facts. I pray every night for my American family members and for freedom loving Americand everywhere, that they have the strength to stand up and fight this attack on freedom and liberty that is being waged by the new administration.

Thanks for clearing up my outdated info re: Canada. I have always enjoyed visits to Canada. I love the friendly people and beautiful country. Are you still on Socialized Medical? If it weren't so friggin cold in the winter, I would immigrate in a minute! What about part time living? Find a place for my travel Trailer for the summertime? Thanks again, samD

p.s.
I am 1/4 French, don't like to admit it, though...

Unfortunately

we still have universal health care, it's a big drag on our tax system and there is lots of waste and unaccountability. That is one of the cons of living in Canada in my humbe opinion, although many Canadians would disagree, especially out east. I just come back from working up norh in the oilsands and we seen temps of -50, cold even for someone who is used to it. Lots of retired Canadians live out our winters down in Arizona, Florida and California and lots of Americans come up to enjoy our summers, as of late though tourism has dropped off due to economic reasons. Part time living is not a problem, we welcome tourists, especially our neighbors from the south. Come on up, you can park you travel trailer here we would be happy to have you. Although our governments have had differences on certain issues no other 2 countries that share a border anywhere in the world have as good of a relationship as Canada and the U.S. And we as people have way more in common than not.

p.s
If i was 1/4 french i wouldnt like to admit it either.

Canada welcomes you as a tourist, student or temporary worker. Every year, more than 5 million people visit Canada to enjoy the many opportunities our country has to offer.

Depending on where you live, and the reason for your visit, you will need to meet certain entry requirements. In some cases, if you plan to stay in Canada for a certain period of time, you will need a Temporary Resident Visa.

I'am very worried about the changes Obama wants to make to your existing gun laws, because that will be used by our oposition govt to put the pressure on changing our gun laws. I can hear them in parliment now " the Americans have now tightened restrictions, why are we still living in the past Mr Prime Minister ". Fight it tooth and nail my American friends. One only has to look to the past to see that gun restrictions always lead to an outright ban, it has happened to many countries, nazi Germany comes to mind. Govt always uses the tired old " cut down on firearm crime excuse ", look where that has gotten the English and Aussies, gun crime is way up there now.

across the border

You can take the long guns with you ,tell you are a hunter but the other catch is if you plan on staying you have to prove you have $15,000 to live on and it takes for ever to get papers to stay but best way to get in is thru thru Alaska
