If you want people who don’t want to be in the USA to leave, you need to help change this one thing.

Some people watch the people who are kneeling for the anthem, or celebrities who wanted to leave when Trump won, and thought to themselves that these people should just leave if they don’t like it. There is a massive barrier preventing them from doing that which involves too much government intervention, especially if the people are wealthy like athletes or celebrities. This barrier is citizenship based taxation, where USA citizens are taxed as if they are residents, but regardless of where they live. This could cause these wealthy people to be double taxed, eligible to pay possibly 90% to over 100% of their income partly because of the USA’s rules. The USA and Eritrea, which is under a dictatorship, are the only 2 countries in the world that have citizenship based taxation.

If you want these people, or anyone, to have the freedom to leave the country if they don’t like it, you need to contact your federal representatives and ask them to repeal citizenship based taxation as soon as possible. You can find who your representative is at https://whoismyrepresentative.com.
