It’s still a small number, but I have to say it’s all the idiots sending American jobs to other countries.

Every job sent to another country, is another step down for America.

Bring back American jobs. Now.

I'd be curious to know how many Pakistani's f'rinstance, born here and develope a jihadi attitude and leave America to fight against us.

I'm guessing there's more of THAT than Joe Williams of Milwauki moving to Poland and relinquishing US citizenship.

But where are better options?

Not one nation in Europe is both better off and more politically and economically free than the US. Australia and NZ aren’t doing much better at all, Russia is still doing way worse and is still quite a bit more dictatorial.

A few here have mentioned the Japanese and the Phillipines which are great for foreign expats (though of course when you are a local it is an ENTIRELY different situation). But they have enough room for maybe a tiny fraction of the Americans that might consider moving, if that.

It’s not hard to figure out why, taxes and the fact that the US has made it all but impossible for a US citizen to operate financially outside of the US. So those with dual citizenship are saying good-bye while they still can. Not sure if it’s a good idea or not as looking around no place really looks all that appealing to me, but if I had some hot little brown bunny in the Philippines or Thailand and a good slug of cash socked away it would be pretty tempting to say so long to a country rapidly falling into Fascism and property seizures.

The US gummit bullied the Swiss for the names of secret American depositors, the better to levy huge fines:

The rest of the banking world now fears if they do business with Americans AT ALL then they’ll have TONS of disclosure/regulatory demands suddenly foisted on them by the US gummint bullies.

The various banks around the world solved this potential problem by simply declaring they won’t take Americans as customers.

Do you hold a US passport? Ah! OK well then my bank won’t do biz with ya, sorry...

It’s that simple.

So basically non US governments see the US gummint as a spy bully, and non US banks won’t take Americans as customers.

Those are parts of this new & refreshing Hope & Change era of Obama —nice, huh?

Most of these people are AINOs: Americans abroad who have little connection to the US except a passport that sits in a drawer. Our kakistocrats have made their lives miserable through tax and bank spying laws, so they’re taking the path of least resistance and turning in their passports.

What will be interesting is the situation 20 years hence when there is a shortage of younger workers and lots of countries desperate for them. The kakistocrats are certainly not making a very good case for the young and talented to stay here.

Silly tax more like it. The US is the only country that double taxes a person — so if you work outside the country, you pay income tax in that country AND you pay US income tax. That’s crazy.

Can’t blame people. The former America is dead and gone. It was suicide. If I was wealthy I’d bail in a heartbeat before I coughed up another dime to the scumbag Democrat politicians to use for buying votes from their moocher base.

1131 for the quarter? Out of 320 million? Not exactly a flood.

The Brits should talk. About a year ago, I think it was “The Guardian’’, Britain's version of ''The New York Times'' found in a survey that some 300,000 of their best and brightest(and those who could afford to) were leaving the UK in the last few years.
