The United States is becoming like the Hotel California. You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. The USA chases you for taxes on income earned everywhere on earth, even if you no longer live in the USA. There is even a draconian "Exit Tax" for those who are both wealthy and renounce US citizenship, and it factors in such things as unrealized future gains and income. No other civilized nation on earth treats its own this way. Try to prove that you are free, and suffer the punishing consequences of it. Something is seriously wrong here. Freedom implies the freedom to leave.
Just as the "Income Tax" was originally imposed only upon the 1%, the exit tax (which went into effect on June 17, 2008) will soon be broadened downward until it reaches all of us.
