    Personally I feel that if someone renounces their American citizenship then they should never be allowed back into the US including it's territories, nor should they be allowed to do business with any American company.I don't care what someone's reasons are for renouncing their citizenship.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They should be treated the same as any other foreigner. Why in the world would you want to punish them? I don't understand.

    Make them stand in line with everyone else if they ever want to get their citizenship back. Aside from that, treat them like any other non-citizen.

    They should not be allowed to enter the US. They should not be allowed to do business inside the US. Any remaining US assets should be seized.

    Remember that I'm an Isolationist and a Nationalist, Maggie. When I leave the US permanently and renounce my citizenship this fall (hopefully), I will not be leaving anything behind. No money. No property. Nothing. That's the way these people should be. If they don't like the US, leave it (as I'm working on doing); but don't try to stand on the fence.

    Frustratingly slowly, to be honest with you. All sorts of hoops and red tape to be dealt with.
