    that might be even more silly than your claims that we should not engage in any athletics with other countries. That makes no sense whatsoever

    the top one percent when it comes to income taxes and almost all the death taxes

    Not that I expect you to answer hard questions. You never did on WS and you won't here.

    There is a inverse corrolation between partisan hackery and honesty. The more of a hack you are, the less likely you are to either answer questions at all or answer them honestly

Considering the fact they don't really live in the country in the first place and depending on their income it may be vastly cheaper to not be a citizen hence why they do it. That and they are giving Uncle Sam the finger, which I always applaud.
    I was an expat for 11 years and they never got a dime out of me. When I returned in 1974, I actually had "tax shock" because I had forgotten how unpleasant it is. But I paid them from then on and got on with my life. The more I paid them meant the more money I made. So the good outweighed the bad.

    No, you're just bad mouthing everyone else.

    Oh just stop....You're being childish again....Anyway, your question supposes that the money they have deposited in foreign banks is somehow illegal...That would be up to you to prove....
