    I see.. so if I don't hate the rich, I must be licking their boots.

    as it is now, when you renounce your citizenship,and are rich, you are levied a tax on all of your unrealized capital gains... they pretend you sell all of your assets and tax you on the gains ( which is why it's best to leave during a market downturn, as values on assets have fallen)
    you are also susceptible to a 30% withholding tax on income.
    ( of course, you won't be getting all that money you put into SS back... but folks are ok with that too, as expatriates are evil criminals)

    it's very expensive to renounce your citizenship...Uncle Sam makes sure you are punished for leaving the US... and somehow, liberals enjoy the thought of punishing people for leaving this society and striking out in a new one.. 'cuz liberals are all about freedom and self determination and stuff.
    I have heard nothing but crickets chirping after this post.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    There are two different types of countries on this issue. One makes their country a place people want to live, work and be free to enjoy the fruits of their labor. The other kind is one that treats their citizens like slaves and basically imprisons them such as Cuba and East Germany. If we start by punishing the rich for wanting to evade excessive taxes with threats of confiscating their wealth where does it end? Do we do the same with company's that want to leave and then educated that want to leave and finally working people that want to leave?

    Totally disagree.


    This guy used the current system to gain wealth, and is now using the current system to keep his wealth. This is the American Dream.


    Make the tax system fair. Simplify the tax system; everyone pays their fair share. No one is exempt.

    I suspect the very wealthy would not like that idea one bit.
