    He built a personal empire with FaceBook, which was a value added addition to what we, the people provided the infrastructure for. At the point where the company is going public, he announced his decision to renounce his American citizenship to save paying taxes on his historic capital gain.

    You can agree or disagree with what he is doing for his personal gain... a decision about his own citizenship...

    The big scumbags though are also the ones who think that the government should be confiscating over 50% of this person's income

    What exactly does facebook produce? It's really not worth what the pundits are saying.

    Your 50% figure is bullshit. Most of his projected gain would be taxed at reduced rates. He's still making money on a publicly financed infrastructure.

    Publicly financed?

    He doesn't charge to be a member, companies pay to advertise.

    Less than 50% in federal income tax or capital gains tax... but we all know, idiot dick sucker, that the 'evil rich' and even the average Joe UpperMiddleClass pays ~50% or more with all the hidden and not so hidden taxes... you want me to start listing them again??

    Duh....The Internet was publicly financed. The American taxpayers paid for it, and it was put on the public domain.

    He is sensible. Many Americans have had to make that decision, last year almost 2,000 of them made that decision. This year even more will.

    The government got greedy, this is one of the consequences of overtaxation.
