    What's that? Who's John Galt? The numbers here aren't large but I've known of two people who have renounced their US citizenships in Asia in the last year, but I also have to imagine this is the tip of the iceberg - given the relative ease that it can be done.

    Andrew Mitchel reports that the number of individuals renouncing their U.S. citizenship (or terminating their long-term U.S. permanent residency) and expatriating from the U.S. more than doubled in 2010":

    Not that I bother to respond to him, I believe leanathleticdc should be encouraged to continue posting. I feel his posts are a good representation of the consistency and reasoning from the left.

    And yours represents what?

    That you can cut and past articles?

    or more like the lack of empathy of the Right.

    Obviously your narrow, prejudiced right-wing mind cannot understand satire. Doesn't surprise me. I think a lot of other guys here understood what leanathleticdc was doing. When your mind comes out of the Middle Ages, do get back to us. icon_razz.gif

    Misinformation is the forte of the Right.
    That's why Fox-News just keeps em dumb.

    Given how riddler is spamming the entire forum right now, it's kind of hard to avoid posting on his threads.

    Frankly, I'm glad people are leaving the country. It's too damn crowded as it is.

    I hope they're all filthy rich, too, so our socialist plot will have fewer obstacles. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Now you're going to claim that news biases to the right? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I post a few, on the high end, (3-5) articles a day based on the volume of news articles that I come across and often in response to far more inflammatory posts by you and others but I also welcome your responses. Thanks icon_smile.gif
