I've heard that in the old days most people lived and died within 30 miles of where they were born. Looking into that, it doesn't seem like that means they never traveled but they often stayed near family, with 30 miles representing a day's ride at a comfortable pace, and it certainly wasn't everyone, as many of the US states had decently sized percentages born elsewhere.

People were divided into settled and movers. Most people stayed put but a minority moved and travelled a lot. They often passed that instinct on to their kids. Most Americans will be descended from that latter group. Children of Cain.

Americans are total slaves now.

Americans don't care if the IRS hires 87,000 new agents, but Americans lose their minds if the Border Patrol doesn't hire 87,000 new officers.

Americans shrug if the Gestapo arrests Christians, but Americans become insane if the Gestapo doesn't jail Buddhists.

I don't know what you mean by "save a little bit of money" when interest rates generally do not keep up with the rate of inflation.

You don’t understand what I mean when I say save some money for a plane ticket?

I read each list item as topically independent.
