    Too bad. We don't need then here and they just cause more trouble than they're worth.

    So... nobody can come to the U.S. on vacation, huh? That'll kill the tourism industry.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    When something is blatently unfair, it is not wrong to not pay it.

    The US has no claim on any monies made and used outside the US.
    Well... I don't know that it's not wrong. It's certainly not wrong to try to change the rules, and I agree they should be changed, but simply ignoring the rules and thinking there will be no negative repercussions from doing so is a bit naive.

    Since Americans can't leave the US for vacation either, that should alleviate some of the problem.

    As with my comment about those leavi g the US, I'm discussing the way things should be, not necessarily how they are at this time.

    I go of of my way to purchase as few foreign products as possible. It's not realistic to avoid all foreign products. There are some things I don't have because I can't find a domestic option.

    Yeah, not actually caring. America isn't one size fits all.
