Today the library is so noisy I can’t hear myself think. And someone messed with all the computers. I couldn’t even find the mouse. I had to look all over for it. It was hidden under the desk. I wonder if the librarians did it. They’re the last ones out of the building and they come in every night after everyone’s left and try to put things in place.
Well, enough about the librarians. I heard yesterday on the radio that a lot of Americans are renouncing their American citizenship. And I don’t blame them. But it’s not for the reason you think. A lot of the Americans who moved to Europe are renouncing their citizenship because of the IRS. Wherever we Americans live, we have to pay the U.S. government taxes. If someone from Spain moves out of Spain and goes to live in Canada, the Spanish government no longer collects taxes from the Spanish citizen. The U.S. is the only country which collects taxes when a citizen decides to live elsewhere. If that citizen doesn’t pay his taxes, the IRS hounds him/her for the taxes. A lot of banks in Europe cancelled bank accounts of Americans because the U.S. makes them give them information on the accounts of Americans. The European banks don’t want to be bothered with American accounts and all the problems they cause. And that’s why Americans are renouncing their citizenships. They don’t want to be bothered with Uncle Sam’s Internal Revenue Service hounding them. So rather than put up with Uncle Sam, they decided they rather give up their citizenship and be able to keep their bank accounts.
At one time, America used to be a place where people from other countries wanted to come. Now, Americans are running away. In the years before 2013, about 500 Americans renounced their citizenship. In the year 2013, 3000+ Americans renounced their citizenship for various reasons. And I think that number is going to skyrocket in the following years. America is no longer the place it used to be. It’s become rotten to the core. I know a lot of Americans still think America is the only country that’s free, but that’s not true. There are a lot of countries that are freer than the U.S. America has a long way to go before it can say it’s free. If I had a place to go, I’d leave!!!
(By the way, I got the information National Public Radio)
