    Ahh, I see.

    These tax dodging ex-pats do not concern you, and you have no opinion on the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act.

    That's why you started a thread about these ex-pats and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act

    Still putting words in my mouth....Ah well, I guess you can't argue honestly....Tell ya what, I address you when you present ideas and we have something to discuss. Until then, this isn't about me so, think long and hard and come on back.

    Bet most of those have absolutely nothing to do with taxes. Not all countries allow dual citizenship and that could be a big part of the number.

    You really should have composed a stronger argument before starting this thread. All I have to do is say, "Make the laws to punish ex-pats" stronger so that leaving is prohibitively expensive.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Why don't you do some thinking and tell me what this thread is about?

    So far, we know that it isn't about ex-pats or the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act

    Good plan...except they are likely rich. The last thing we need is to discourage money bags McGee from spending here.

    Lack of will by the People is the reasoning for that failure.

    I disagree. If they want to live somewhere else, let them divest themselves of all involvement with the United States, permanently.

    Hey, I got it....Let's just build a wall around the entire US, and face the barbed wire inward so that no one can get out.....Oh yeah, that's already failed.....

    Well, the article makes a direct link, can you show where these people are giving up their citizenship for another reason?

    Quit being a pest and start formulating an argument to debate, otherwise I'd appreciate if you'd bow out.
