I kinda thought so. Thanks for clarifying your post. I figured that when this happens in the USA, then soon it will be everywhere in the world-nowhere will be safe. Is anyone here going to attempt to move, before these changes happen next year? Is anyone making any sort of preparations, like buying extra canned food, etc? Or is everyone just sitting here in shock, waiting for it all to happen? Of course there is nothing we can do, once it starts-I just wondered if everyone that lives in the USA is staying. I have a couple of friends who already have passports and are moving to another country.
