Should I raise kids in the States or try to expatriate for them?

Looking into the future with my partner and the kids I'd like to have, I can't shake the feeling that things are going to get worse here, that they'd inherit a country in turmoil. - Wealth inequality - High cost/inaccessibility of health care - Citizens v. United - Repeal of Glass-Steagall/lack of transparency on Wall Street - GM foods - Rising costs of post-secondary education I get the feeling that Average Americans are too complacent and that things will have to get a lot worse before people really mobilize to make sure they get better. Do I want my kids to be a part of that transition? If not, where do we go? Canada? Scandinavia?
