    If someone offered you a million dollars to leave your country for some other country and never come back, would you accept the offer?

    Not forever, no. Despite its many faults, I love this place. For a long-term move, however, I probably wouldn't mind spending a few years in one of the Scandanavian countries. Likely Norweedland, as long as I can remember to never bend over if Arildno is around. :eek:

    A million isn't as much as it used to be, so no, and it doesn't matter what country.

    for a couple million i definitely would. cept it'd be a bit hard to be a millionaire and never visit the US, but i'm sure it could be managed. was this supposed to be a question about national pride or something?

    Guam is an unincorporated territory of the United States, and I only moved here for a two year stay, to see how it was out here.

    Hence it is not really a part of the united states, right????

    If I was offered a million to go to the US I'd decline for sure.

    But even if it was a country that I'd really want to go to I'd probably still decline because you'd be leaving behind family and friends. While they would still visit you and that, it wouldn't really be the same. I'd just prefer to not have any restrictions on where I can visit as well.

    big man, have you ever been to the US? It's a nice place.

    They get all the benefits of being a state without paying the taxes. Or at least thats how my Grandfather who lives on Saipan explained it, but he was talking about Saipan, not Guam.

    Yeah, pretty much. Its to keep the inhabitants happy while we use their island as a military base. Except Guam doesn't get to vote in Congress.

    No I haven't actually. I wasn't saying that it wouldn't be a nice holiday destination...I just couldn't ever see myself wanting to live there permanently.
