Same costs as LOS?

No. 

Panama is more expensive than Thailand.

Yes.  The hate is at an all time high very sad.  I am so glad to be in LOS.  But, have family and grandkids there that I worry about. Could be quite awhile before I can safely see them again. And unfortunately, I do not think dementia Joe is the answer to any of it.

My two main potential alternatives to Thailand are Mexico and Colombia. 

 

But both have bad Covid-19 rates especially Mexico. 

 

Colombia is closed to new Americans. 

 

So now only Mexico might work. 

 

News today is that the USA is considering banning some US citizens from returning from Mexico. 

Yes sounds unconstitutional. 

 

Other options are Cambodia and post Covid the Philippines.

 

Repatriating is the last resort.

The only thing you can do is hope. The problem, though, is another opposition that only going to create problems, or that the same opposition grows stronger for 4 more years.

Who would want to go to Mexico with the high crime rate there?

 

If I were back in the USA I would get me a remote cabin somewhere off the grid in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains. Preferably with nearby rivers/lakes to fish on.

some truth in that.    two thoughts though (similar for mexico or usa :

                  you don't need to be "off grid"..... but there are many small towns in the US  where

                   the weather is ok and the people not so crazy.    i lived in kerrville, tx   in what is

                  called the Hill Country.     pretty nice, cheap 20 years ago,  but maybe not now.  other

                   similar place in tx or carolinas or ??    

 

                 as for mexico,  different culture and if you are sick of americans , would offer a happier

                      and poorer alternative.    Also probably cheaper.   ladies maybe just as fat.

                 and don't learn how to ask who is the local drug lord

When you get old, how do you plan on taking car of the family you made?

South and Central America are appealing, except for the crime problem.

Had a job offer that I had last year, was seasonal..got cancelled due to covid.....I come home to work..save that money ,then go spend it living in LOS ...more bang for my baht......1/3 of the cost in LOS compared to US

If you are doing seasonal work, then living in Thailand, you don't have enough money to even think about living there.

Where are you staying when you come back to the US? Some family for free?

Seems you have nothing in the US and nothing in Thailand to call your own.

Sooner or later, it will catch up with you.

I have a number of good friends that work for the government that I have known for over 20 years.

 

Names, what an absurd request.
