@Nefario, if your goal is to create a business, wouldn't Singapore be a better call for you? They are ranked better than US in all economic freedom indexes I've seen, and they are closer to you.
I hear Singapore is a police state. Sounds like it is a trap. Everything is free for business to come and then in a few years they'll lock everything down like China. Didn't the USSR do something like this?Have a "friend" in the city you're landing in, have their phone number and have a story worked out with each other before you leave.
Why not just come to Mexico and then come over the border
If they find you act a little bit dumb and say you're a hillbilly who was born down South and that you don't like to carry any ID.
If you enter a country and they have no idea where you are from you can get refugee status. A boat with 400 people from a troubled country near India I think it was showed up in a Canadian port not too long ago ...
I think the United States is Similar to Singapore. Here I believe the income tax is voluntary, but most people don't know this or are to short sighted to make use of it. The Internal Revenue Code is a code not a law. You are not subject to the code unless prescribed by law or legally binding contract. In the same way if you wire up your house incorrectly you violate National Electric Code but it doesn't matter because there is no law that says your house has to be in compliance with the code until you try to sell the house, then your house must be in code because there is a law. When you file to the IRS and put your signature on the document you are signing a contract that makes you subject to the Internal Revenue Code. So the very first time you file it is voluntary. But people are very short sighted and even if they do know this they will file anyway to be able to get their tax refund, even if this prevents them from mining and selling bitcoins later on without the income tax!
One of my teachers who is foreign was talking about companies and taxes and he said "But many company not pay the tax". You can have your company off shore and operate within the US and not pay any taxes. I think the US allows this on purpose because the US doesn't want people who are in the know to go to other countries and start their businesses there and help build up those countries. If you are a foreigner, they'll let you operate in the US with no taxes to try to make you help boost the US economy and provide employment and keep you from setting up your company in a foreign country where you would have much lower labor costs and probably be much more successful in the long run.
When something is too good to be true, it really is too good to be true!
I mine $10 a day in bitcoins and I've been thinking about what life would be like if I went to a poor country for a while and tried to live on that. It would make a good story. I was talking about it on IRC and that's what brought me to this forum.
Somebody said something about a buyer from Nigeria and I said I'd like to go to Nigeria and some people said no you don't here look at this forum post of this one guy who got stuck in Seattle. But hey in Nigeria a $20 would probably be enough of a bribe to get through and kind of problem like we saw here!
The people who are taking over the US seem to not care for bribes (silver or gold). AS was prophesied by Isaiah.
Babylon Will Fall to the Medes
17Behold, I am going to stir up the Medes against them,
Who will not value silver or take pleasure in gold.
18And their bows will mow down the young men,
They will not even have compassion on the fruit of the womb,
Nor will their eye pity children.
19And Babylon, the beauty of kingdoms, the glory of the Chaldeans’ pride,
Will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
20It will never be inhabited or lived in from generation to generation;
Nor will the Arab pitch his tent there,
Nor will shepherds make their flocks lie down there.
21But desert creatures will lie down there,
And their houses will be full of owls;
Ostriches also will live there, and shaggy goats will frolic there.
22Hyenas will howl in their fortified towers
And jackals in their luxurious palaces.
Her fateful time also will soon come
And her days will not be prolonged.
