I'm not there yet, but at some point I probably will be. With a twist of having a very large sailboat I can use...

Rather have a home base in FL but it's not looking good given what we're seeing in the fake elections this year.

I'd been considering a red state but that may just be a temporary hold over. The takeover of our country has just been unreal.

If I didn’t enjoy scuba diving as much, I would consider Texas rather than Florida.

I watched some Nomad Capitalist YouTubes, but I recall the USA taxes you everywhere you are, so I don’t get the whole concept.

I have bad news for you. All of the marine animals have become Communists.

They will remand you below deck until they decide you are worthy to emerge.

Lived in TX for 15 years. I'm highly allergic. The Rio Grande Valley and the Oregon Valley are the two worst places to live in the US if you have allergies.

That guy doesn't pay US after renouncing citizenship.

I we are not going to be US citizens, then we have to find a county that is nice to live in, has lower taxes than the USA, and that will let you be a citizen there.

I think the guy makes a small living selling his services, whatever they are, maybe books, etc.

The only way to retake the country is to resist compliance with any of these fucks and their fucking rules. It’s happening in LA and NYC where the lefties have their power seats. They can’t command compliance because they don’t have any enforcement who will do their dirty work.

I don't like the guy, but Peter Schiff touts making Puerto Rico your primary residence. Supposedly there's some loophole and you pay substantially less Federally or none at all. I cannot remember. Supposedly it's a super huge tax advantaged territory for US citizens. Cost of living is pretty affordable too for above average, non-waterfront homes.

Obviously you'd need to know some Spanish. And be comfortable with a little edginess, as PR's economy blows and therefore decent amount of crime. If you got the $$$ though, you can always get into a gated community and get a small condo or something. I hate HOA's, but when I'm 60+ years old I'm done with yards and maintenance.

About 20 years ago, I helped a buddy sail his 41-ft Cat from Puerto Rico to Miami. As we drove to the harbor, there was a running gun battle on a freeway nearby. I was close enough to observe the muzzle flashes. Could have been hit by a stray round. Has it changed much? Seemed very thrid world. Also, insanely stupid humidity (not at all like Hawaii) and tropical Storms/Hurricanes. But I live in NorCal where we have smoke and fires and third world power outages.

The boat in the lead photo would take a year-round staff of 5 just for upkeep. More for cruising.

Yeah, the nomad guy does too. Advises just getting residence in a few foreign countries if nothing else. Just in case one needs to bug out.

Reality is I'm not even getting out of San Diego for a few more years at least. Just scored a new job where my handcuffs are even more golden. They were embracing remote before covid though so after a year or so I may float the idea of working from another state.

Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech republic. Last places in Europe or even world with common sense. Poland is probably the safest bet.
I've heard that Chile is nice but that is 2nd hand knowledge.

Yeah, in one video he picked those countries out in particular and said it's very fucking hard to get in. Pretty much don't try or make it your hobby while you work on other places.

He like me has Polish ancestry (great grandfather) but nope. That don't help.

No tax on the first 100k or so of income when you spend less then 30 days in USA.

Then you spend less then 180 days in any one country and pay no taxes.

That’s what some are doing, although it seems like a pain. Seems easier to just run a cash business and not declare income.

Has to be father or mother. Otherwise, get a residence permit, then 3 yrs later can apply for citizenship if you pass language test.

That seems quite fair. Mine is my grandmother. It would probably take me more than 3 years to pass the language test. I must have misunderstood, I'd thought he was unable to even get a residence permit.

Then pay a gardener. You don’t have to go to the extreme of being governed by some communist organization who will threaten to fine you for leaving your car hood up or a towel on your balcony.

I have had horrible horrible experiences with HOA, fuck em
