No never forsake my country (India) for that. Home is always the best place to be back in even though we go for earning abroad.

I'm from the US and I could never leave here and not come back either. I would miss my family too much for one thing.

I could live in another country but I will always go back to the Philippines for vacations because my family is here.

I would have to say that I would leave, but only if God was leading me, as he did Abraham. I love the USA, which is not perfect, but is my homeland, and is culturally full and diverse. I find it inteesting that many people missed half the question, name your country. I was really looking forward to finding out where lots of people are from, but I do not want to ask that dumb one-liner question.

You are right. I've only been giving +'s to those that answered the entire question too.

You can give me half the money and I will leave my country. I am living in Singapore. I don't like this place at hot. The place is in summer all year long. The place is too small with no mountain or nice beaches.. Nothing to explore in this small little island.

Even with all that money, I don't think I could do that. leave my family and everybody behind for money. I'd rather work hard and try to make the money out in america.

I would accept NOTHING to leave my country. If I didn't have my country to believe in, all the money in the world wouldn't mean spit to me. I love the USA with all my heart and soul. I would die for her, but I never sell out for her.

I could never forsake the US. I may not be happy with how it's being run or the decisions of my politicians, but it's still my home.

I live in the U.S. For me it would depend where I had to go after leaving my country. For $5 million I believe I could be very happy somewhere in Europe, but there isn't enough money in the world that I'd go to the Middle East for.

Never. No amount of money would entice me to leave the United States, my home, and my family. There are many countries which I would love to visit and spend time in, and there are many culures that I would like to learn about. But I am an American, and I am a proud American.

White Sand - Beach in Boracay Island where the sand is white, a very beautiful location.
I live in the Philippines. Money cannot buy everything - happiness, peace, etc. Even if you give me 5M dollars and leave my country if you forbid me to go back, I won't accept it. The Philippines is a beautiful country and it is my native land. I was born here, I love my country. I am a Filipino and I belong to the Philippines.

N't at all. I'll never leave my dear homeland "Pakistan" for enough money as i am quite happy and satisfy with my life in Pakistan. I dislike to leave my country for any purpose specially, for earning more money. Another important reason for n't leaving my country is that my currency is rupees" and our 60 rupees r equal to 1 dollar means as 100 cents make a dollar. Similarly 60 rupees make a dollar. I've started earning dollars by sitting at home in Pakistan then y should i leave my country. No, there is no need of leaving mine country for me.

No, there is no way that I would ever leave the US knowing that I could never return. There is not enough money in the world to make me do that!
