    Americans Are Applying to Move to New Zealand at an Astounding Rate

    Americans Are Applying to Move to New Zealand at an Astounding Rate

    Forget Canada. In the wake of the election, the Associated Press reports, Americans are applying in droves for citizenship in New Zealand, a country as far away as physically possible from the United States, and one with a strong social safety net. With U.S. politics more chaotic and divisive than ever, the number of applications for citizenship has soared a whopping 70 percent in the three months following the election, compared to the same period of time last year.
    NZ has fewer than five million inhabitants, about 1/7 the population of California. It could get a bit crowded there.

    No, they'll send them to Australia as per usual.

    Hummm.....I dunno if I could adapt. That's some alien environment they have there.

    Even their plants are a tad odd.

    If I were single, I would move there. It is a gorgeous place, cheap and I love to fly fish for trout. They make you show dough to emigrate, you can't show up without means. I have been there several times. The biggest drawback is that you end up leaving everyone behind, its a long, long ways to Auckland.

    Any word on Australia in this context?
