American Expat Considers Returning Home

aapanamacityI came to live in Panama about seven years ago.
It was not a closed society or did it contain an exotic culture or a center of spirituality. But it was a refuge at the time.
You see, I was convinced that the United States would undergo cataclysmic changes. And, indeed, it has. Its economy has never recovered to its former strength as its economic recession started the month that I left the States. I believed that it would become a fascist security state, and that is still becoming very true.
I may return to the United States to live. There appears yet to be some time left before things go the way of Bible prophecy. The situation in Panama seems to be more volatile than the United States, as it does elsewhere in Latin America. In many ways, there is more chance of a revolution happening here in Panama before any such an event would occur in the States. Truly from political and social index charts, Panama is being compared to its not “doing so-great” neighbors such as Mexico, Columbia, and Venezuela in several aspects.
My experience may mirror Mike Adams, of Natural News. He spent some time in Ecuador, before getting disillusioned and returning to the United States. Basically, he said that he was tired of being a “target,” and wanted to go back when he blended in as opposed to sticking out. It is kind of like the proverb–“Birds of a feather flock together,” to summarize his desire to return to the States.
I know many Americans down here. The rule of thumb is, that after about two, to five years, you see what it is going on here, and you figure it is no longer for you. For diehards like me, it takes about seven. I have seen quite a few go back.
