    You do know Minnesotans will be split on this, right? This isn't just some machination that came from out of some laboratory in DC cooked up to bring chaos into state governments across the country.

    You also probably have the causation reversed. If you make less than $90,000 a year, you don't pay dual taxes. You only pay them in your country of residence. Therefore, people who aren't rich have no reason to renounce their citizenship over taxes, because they aren't being dual-taxed. Only the rich have a reason to do it.
    And the fact that THEY HAVE A REASON is reason enough that it's wrong.

    Sounds good to me. The democrats own it. We have to clean it up. A very good way to do so is to destroy the power of the public sector unions all over the nation. Union thugs should have no role to play in government. Let us only hope enough people realize the destructive nature of the unions and the democrats combined against the American taxpayer and the nation as a whole.

    I hope this right response to the union minion and thug combining with democrats in government will be nationwide. If we succeed the nation will remain free.

    Minnesota stats:


    71% support raising taxes on those making over $250,000. And a whopping 79% support raising taxes on those making over $1,000,000.

    Many thanks to Senator Mark Dayton.

    Dayton vetoed the other spending proposals. He also vetoed Republican-backed bills to restrict abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and require voters to present photo identification at the polls similar to Republican efforts across the country.

    Yeah! It's those damn unions! I mean, it were them there damned unions what caused the financial crises which sucked trillions of dollars out of the US economy even as corporations saw record profits and executive pay skyrocketed! It were also them there damned unions what forced us into multiple military conflicts costing us trillions of dollars in direct cost and trillions more in "hidden" costs like interest on the debt and caring for wounded vets! It were also them damned unions what caused them there Republicans to cut taxes for the uber-wealthy during a time of "war"!

    It were the damnable unions!

    Whew! Pass me some of that Kool-Aid because after that tirade, I'm gettin' a might bit thirsty...
