    It's hard to believe that the US has become the poster child for over-regulation in the world.
    Swiss banks are wary of the US because we don't have shown that a wink and a nod won't keep their criminal accounts in the dark from us forever... and they are pissed that we keep asking them to quit hiding criminal activity. Screw 'em.

    So much for that famous concern liberals have for how the US is seen by the rest of the world.

    The US taxes global income due to the protections afforded to US citizens living abroad. Believe me...you DON'T want to give those up. In other words, if, say, you are an english teacher working in China...while you have to follow China's rules, you ARE afforded all the rights of a US citizen. It's kinda like being in a gang. And just about all gangs have dues of some form or another. Ours happens to be taxes.
